I do not have large hands, but when I fire my RRA M4gery (especially prone) the web of my hand has little if any contact with the back of the pistol grip. Can anyone recommend a grip (other than the hogue which I don't like either) that will rectify this problem? Would the MAID grip be a good solution? Unfortunately, I do not have an opportunity to try other models as all of my friends' rifles wear standard A2 or Hogue grips. Thanks for your help.

MIAD. The ability to drop in different backstrap and frontstraps makes a massive difference.

I'm curious too.

I Have been looking at the MAID, is it sturdy? Meaning if i squeeze the grip do you feel the pieces shift? Worth the $44?

I currently use ergo grips and have been really pleased, firm and a good texture. Priced roughly ~$20. It, for me anyway fills the web of my hand nicely, but it is kinda thin.

Sturdy? Yes, it certainly is. The above thread is how I found out.

Now that I know that they're "K-9 resistant" I'm going to order one. Thanks for the recommendation.

The only difference between the standard and the full kit is the frontstrap with the built in trigger guard, and a piece most will never use. So if you don't need or want the trigger guard you can save some money.

Either way, it is worth the money.

MIAD, or for starters the FS G-27

MIAD all the way. I've owned most of the grip out there and none compare.

G-27 or Houge work very well.

I have five Ergo's on four ARs and another on a FAL.

I bought the G-27 a while back thinking it would be the greatest. I was a little disappointd. It's nice but

I think I was expecting it to be a "softer" grip. If they could make the same looking grip but soft textured like some of the Ergo Grips I might give it a second chance.

I have an Ergo grip on my current AR. I like it. For my next AR I'm considering the Hogue pistol grip.

The MIAD looks cool but I have no use for all the extra crap. As much as I love MagPul stuff that just seems a little over engineered to me.

MIAD. It's Sticky Dog Approved.

I like the TangoDown, but that's just my opinion.

I prefer the A2, but aside from it, the only grip that interests me is the MIAD.

If the G27 was as soft as a Houge like pathfinder74 says I agree that would be the perfect grip
Link Posted: 12/15/2005 6:16:58 PM EDT
I like my Hogue
