Trying to decide what pistol grips to get for 2 of my AR's. Nothing wrong the issue ones. Might even leave it on my carbine. Mainly wanting something a little different for my Dissipator. Whats your favorite and why. Post pics if you have them. Thanks.

Personally, I like the rubber coated Hogue pistol grips...
They fit my hand perfect...
I have them on all my AR's...

They retail for about $20...

I havn't tried many, but I like the Bushmaster M16A2 Stowaway grip. I don't carry anything in the grip right now, but I like the feel of it. It is slightly wider than the stock grip.

I have the Hogues on my ARs, too. By far the most ergonomic aftermarket grips available. Try one!

Hogues. Very sticky and fit great, with just enough give to accomodate your grip. They look nice, too. Not too fancy like the PSG-style grips.

I like my Ergo-Grip. Even if it's a tad too thin crosswise. It has a "backstrap" that goes up behind the lower to move your hand back about half an inch.

Too bad I don't have a lower to put it on!

Houge, everyone who has felt up my AR with the Houge on have had nothing but good things to say about it.

Anyone tried the ZM Weapons grip? It approximates the grip angle of a 1911. Is that a good thing for an AR?

A1 pistol grip. I didn't like the Hogue, Ergo, and HK91-style grips and the finger ridge on the A2 wore some skin off during the last AR course I took.

Troy: for the Hi-Power, Spegel wood grips are the way to go. (IMHO, of course)

I love the PSG-1 style grip I have, for me at least I love to have a palm shelf. For just a plain jane grip I like stow-aways because having a hole in the bottom of my grip drive me nuts, don't know why but it does.

Like Troy, I don't do wood either. It is the 21st century, afterall.

I like the Stowaway, and keep my (field usable) spare parts there. I have them on all my AR's.

The aftermarket grips feel nice, but it's no big deal. I just think ARs look odd with anything but original grips.

It doesn't matter on a space gun.

Cast another vote for the Ergo-Grip from Falcon Industries. Since I bought mine, several friends of mine have tried it and bought one. Best grip on the market IMHO - PERIOD!!!

I've tried most of these grips you mentioned. My favorite by far, is the Sierra precision Rifle Grip or SPR. Sinclair International sells them and maybe a few other places.

It's made of the same stuff as the USGI grip but shaped different. It has a thumb rest and moves your hand back a tad to give better trigger finger placement.

It fits your hand so well, it feels like you molded the grip yourself by squeezing a hunk of clay.

Check em out!
