I know everyone has been waiting for Magpul to finally release another must have product for the AR-15. Everywhere you look in the AR-15 world you see Magpul as they make some of the most well thought out, high quality products. Well the wait is finally over. Just yesterday Magpul released two new grips for the AR-15. They definitely look like keepers and both are extremely affordable too!
The first is the Magpul MOE+. This is the one that has been creating a buzz for the last year as it is very similar to the regular Magpul MOE grip with the addition of a Rubber Overmold. I know I had a hard time giving up my Hogue Grip for the Magpul MOE but the its size and superior ergonomics won me over. I kept wishing it was rubberized though. Now you can have the best of both worlds.
“The MOE+ Grip combines reinforced polymer body construction with comfortable, wrap-around rubber overmolding for maximum weapon control in adverse environments. With a similar shape to a ‘medium’ sized MIAD, this AR15/M16 drop-in design features a hard-polymer bottom edge to reduce the possibility of equipment snags or grip damage. The MOE+ Grip accepts optional storage cores for gear stowage and includes a basic grip cap. All mounting hardware included. Made in U.S.A.” Retails for just $23.95!
Second is the Magpul MOE-K. This one is very different from the original MOE grip as it is a very slim, low profile design. It also features a closer to vertical angle than most AR grips.
“Designed as a drop-in upgrade for the standard AR15/M16 pistol grip, The MOE-K Grip provides a low profile, compact design and steeper grip angle compared to more traditional styles. With a more vertical grip angle optimized for use on PDW (Personal Defense Weapon) configurations, the MOE-K Grip improves comfort and control on rifles that bring the primary hand in closer to the shooter’s body or body armor. The slim profile also makes it an excellent choice for shooters who prefer a smaller grip circumference. Made in U.S.A.” Retails for just $19.95!
The MOE-K is already available for purchase on Magpul.com. The MOE+ will be available shortly and is being distributed as we speak.
