Another thread got me curious. Has ANYONE used one of these thumb hanger type grips on their AR? These are the odd FN P90 type grip that Falcon (Ergo) Ind. used to make (don't see it on their website anymore. What are they like? Are they useable? They also make the survival grip, basically a chopped grip, enough for two finger grip to reduce the rifle dimensions. Anyone experience either grip?

there are 2 that are commercially available: ZMweapons makes one, at the bottom of the accessories page: http://zmweapons.com/accessories.htm and the company that makes the FAB-10 receiver makes one also, which comes with an approval letter from the ATF: http://www.gogogadgets.net/whats_new.htm Personally, I like the ZMweapons grip better. They call it a "horizontal grip". ZM has some sweet rifles two, but too expensive for my modest income.

an interesting idea though. My friends told me they wouldn't shoot with me anymore if I showed up with a thumbhanger on my ARs. I would like to try one, though, to see how they fare ergonomically.

It may be ugly but it would allow you to use evil features

I know, thats why they tempt me. They are about 50 bucks though. I wonder how hard it would be to make one. It can't be rocket science. Would be nice to have that letter from the BATF that comes with them, though.

If you think that's ugly, have you seen the Pachmayr Vindicator grip for the AR??? Yes, the horizontal type grips ARE ugly, and I don't want to waste the money to try one out. I saw one post a long while ago that said they tried it, but I can't remember what it said.

What is the extended tail for? What purpose does it serve?
