Can anybody ID the grip on the left? I bought it from Bushmaster a few years ago, and haven't been able to find another one since.

For reference, the grip on the right is an Ergo-Grip.

Looks like one of the original ergo-grips. They were a little shorter, and not as well made back then.

Bummer. I really prefer it over the new ones. Fits my hand like a glove, feels just like a HK grip. I've got big hands, but the newer ones have a different angle to them that makes them uncomfortable for me.

I've seen that grip on a paintball gun before.. "Euro-grip" was what it was called.

The pics I found of the euro grip do not have the upsweep at the rear.

I would say it is also a Falcon product I think it looks like an HK91 look-alike They might still sell it I remember seeing it. Show them the picture VIA e-mail and they can probably help you out.

Duh -- should have thought of that. Thanks.

Well it's not an Ergo Grip according to Falcon... Any other guesses? From a design perspective it has these significant differences from the Ergo Grip: 1) More vertical grip angle is more comfortable. 2) The whole grip sits 1/4" further back from the rear of the trigger guard. This provides greater relief for the middle finger, a higher grip and a longer trigger reach. I have big hands (10" spread) and although this grip appears much smaller than the Ergo Grip, this one fits my hands perfectly and the placement helps me with proper trigger finger placement. It feels just like the grip on my HK94 clone -- perfect! The only problem is that on my old PWA lower the area where the grip meets the back of the trigger guard is ~ 1/16" too high so the sharp corners contact my finger. The Gapper doesn't quite solve this problem. I guess it has one other problem -- availability!
