Tyrant Designs CNC Introduces Their New MOD ForeGrip

Posted on December 14th, 2016 by ar15news

Seems like Tyrant Designs keeps making cooler and cooler looking products. This new MOD ForeGrip is the first in a series of ForeGrips that will be made by Tyrant Designs CNC. The main body of the grip is metal with polymer finger straps and is compatible with both KeyMod and MLOK handguards. Definitely looking forward to seeing the rest of this line. Check out the press release and images below.

TYRANT DESIGNS CNC ANNOUNCES ITS FIRST OF THEIR NEW LINE OF FOREGRIPS, THE MOD ForeGrip SERIES!

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR grips, has announced the release of their new line of foregrips. The MOD ForeGrip, available in black, red, blue (soon), and grey is CNC machined from a single piece of aerospace grade aluminum. The grip weighs in at a lightweight 1.7 ounces and is fully M-LOK and Keymod compatible.

The MOD ForeGrip is the first installment in our new line of foregrips! Designed to match our very successful MOD AR-15 Pistol Grip, it too has an aluminum body with a polymer finger strap. With a specially designed mounting system, it is compatible with both M-LOK and Keymod rails. Meaning with just a quick change in hardware (that is supplied with the grip when purchased) it can be mounted on either type of rail system. We believe that this is the type of versatility that operators need in order to furnish multiple weapons. The polymer strap helps the operator instantly feel comfortable with the foregrip and give them the confidence needed for any type of situation. We feel that foregrips are a great solution for anyone who desires more muzzle control, and we look forward to adding more to this line in 2017!  “

Tyrant Designs CNC is an AR accessories manufacturer based just outside of Chicago. They have had several successful designs for AR pistol grips and have plans to expand into other AR accessories for 2017.

Tyrant Designs CNC Announces their New LWP Series Grips!

Posted on October 5th, 2016 by ar15news

TYRANT DESIGNS CNC ANNOUNCES ITS NEW LINE OF GRIPS, THE LWP (LIGHTWEIGHT PRO) SERIES!

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high end, aftermarket AR grips announced that they have released their new line of grips, the LWP Grip. Available in black, red, blue and grey the Lightweight Pro series is CNC machined from a single piece of aerospace grade aluminum. The grips weigh in at a surprisingly light 3.4 ounces, thanks to some weight savings by milling out the entire inside of the grip as well as addition holes on the top.

tyrant-lwp-series-18

The Lightweight Pro tips the scales at 3.4 ounces and is lighter than the majority of available grips currently on the market. ( Yes we mean polymers too) ! We set out to create the lightest, most ergonomic grip on the market without compromising the structural integrity and quality. It is CNC machined from a single piece of aerospace grade aluminum and has a knurled back strap for additional adhesion. It instantly gives the operator the confidence needed in any weather or scenario, all while maintaining the consistency needed for a light weight build. Despite its lightweight it is incredibly durable and does not feel flimsy in the hand. If you are looking for the perfect grip for your lightweight build, look no further than the LWP!”

NEW – Tactical Link PDW Grip

Posted on August 8th, 2016 by ar15news

Over the past few years there has definitely been a huge shift towards AR-15 grips with a more vertical angle for a number of reasons including less wrist fatigue, better shooting posture, etc. Tactical Link, a company well known for very nice slings, sling mounts and other accessories, has just announced their newest product which they are calling the Tactical Link PDW Grip for AR style rifles. The TL PDW Grip looks pretty awesome and features its own distinct texture pattern. Check out the details and pics below. 

Tactical Link PDW AR Grip 1

The PDW Grip is a drop-in upgrade for AR style rifles with a more vertical angle, optimized for short LOP (length of pull) personal defense weapons (PDW), bringing the primary hand in closer to the shooter’s body, encouraging a more natural “elbows in” shooting posture which substantially reduces wrist fatigue and is concurrent with modern shooting doctrine.

Made to the finest standards from an extremely durable fiber-reinforced polymer, the PDW Grip is the result of extensive professional shooter feedback and engineering excellence that has produced one of the finest shooting upgrades in the market today. The PDW Grip sports a patent pending design with “zones” of moderately aggressive surface texture to provide unmatched gripping properties for positive weapon control in all environments.

Tactical Link PDW AR Grip 1

The PDW Grip is compatible with most lower receiver mounting platforms (forged or billet) and provides improved biomechanics to better align the trigger finger for a more comfortable and direct rearward trigger pull. Due to its hollow core design (no internal storage), the PDW Grip weighs only 2.1 oz and since the PDW Grip is a drop-in upgrade it is sold without a grip screw.

Shooter Refined Ergonomics: at 14 degrees, the PDW Grip is 235% (19 degrees) more vertical than the standard A2 grip and is the most comfortable and relaxing grip on the marketplace. Places the hand’s flexor muscles on more of the same plane creating a more natural hand position for a more natural hand position with little to no fatigue even during prolonged use.

Optimized Biomechanics: small beavertail backstrap provides enhanced ergonomics and allows the operator’s hand to ride high on the grip for improved recoil management and fire control.

Tactile Gripping Texture: much more aggressive texture than most other grips on the marketplace. “Zones” of more aggressive anti-slip texturing on the palm panels for excellent gripping properties and for positive weapon control in all environments.

Features:
–  All edges rounded for operator comfort
–  Reinforced beaver tail for extra rigidity
–  Aggressive PSP (Pentagonal Surface Projections) Texture on both palm panels for superior weapon control
–  Grooves on the front and rear backstraps for optimal anti-slip surface and excellent gripping properties
–  Accommodates the “seam” commonly found on the beaver tail of forged lower receivers
–  Unique trigger guard design provides a very comfortable, and absolutely the best fit at the trigger guard area of any grip on the market
–  Grip “pulls” the operator’s hand forward into the grip for a more positive grip and better operational control of the weapon
–  Robust design easily exceeds industry standards for quality, strength and durability
–  100% made in USA

The Tactical Link PDW Grip is available now directly from www.TacticalLink.com and will start shipping this week! I’ll definitely be snagging one of these soon to try out on an SBR or AR Pistol. 

TYRANT DESIGNS CNC ANNOUNCES COLORED MOD AR-15 GRIPS!

Posted on July 29th, 2016 by ar15news

**Press Release**

Tyrant Designs CNC, a industry leader in high end, aftermarket AR grips announced that they will now be selling their premium grip, the MOD Grip, in Red, Blue and grey. After the successful release of the MOD Grip in only black, they have decided to expand the options to other colors. With the contrast of colors against the black front and back straps they believe it will help consumers further customize the look of their rifle.

Tyrant CNC Mod Grip 1

Tyrant CNC Mod Grip 1

“After a few months of customers requesting color options, and the fact that the AR platform itself is becoming more than just a black rifle, we decided it would be best to give our customers what they want. We truly appreciate customer feedback, and a lot of our current and future designs include much consideration from the input of our customers. Although we love to push the limits of innovation in our designs, our products would be nothing without the operators input. “

Griffin Armament AR Furniture Now Shipping

Posted on March 14th, 2016 by ar15news

I recently had a chance to put some of the new Griffin Armament furniture kits to use and so far over the first few weeks I have really enjoyed them. They’ve been run at the range a bit and definitely have a great feel and a very unique look. Even though I liked the unique look at first, it has grown on me even more. I will be writing up a full review on these once I’ve had more range time with them. I’ve seen some torture testing they did with the ECS stock and was pleased to see it outlasted other stocks like the Military issued SOPMOD stock. Below are some crappy photos I took 😉 and the press release from Griffin Armament. The new Griffin Armament furniture kits are now shipping. Order yours at www.GriffinArmament.com.

The design objective for the Griffin AR furniture products were to bring quality, functional options to the market that offered unique benefits at affordable prices. The ECS™ (Extreme Condition Stock), RailShield™ M-LOK™ compatible rail covers, and A3 grip are available in Black, FDE, OD Green, and Grey.

“The Extreme condition stock definitely took the most effort.”, Austin stated, Primary owner and Lead engineer for Griffin. He went on to say, “I wanted to make something unique and better. There is a lot of stuff that has come out on the market the last few years that is unique but doesn’t necessarily add any new function or improvement over what already existed.”

The Extreme Condition Stock features a proprietary low drag latching system designed around a beefy stainless tool steel locking pin. This mechanism in conjunction with optimal geometry, and impact modified injected materials, allow the ECS™ to pass a 10 foot drop test when used with the Griffin MRE-HD (Maritime Receiver Extension Heavy Duty). In Griffin’s testing, the ECS stock, when used in conjunction with their MRE, allowed direct impingement Ar15s to pass an “Over The Beach Test”. Holes in the rear butt plate and along the sides of the stock communicate with holes in the MRE allowing for reduced pressure in the operating system when fired immediately after the firearm is removed from the water. The stock has a canted rear butt angle for improved ergonomics to the body. This also ensures recoil is kept high and in-line with the barrel to minimize muzzle rise. Also the top of the stock is “beard friendly” meaning there is no hole present as found in mil-spec style stocks. A low profile anti-rotation QD sling swivel socket is the provided means of sling attachment.

The A3 grip is simple in that it doesn’t have a plug on the bottom. “We polled a lot of our friends from military and contracting and a very small percentage ever used storage in plug grips even when they had them.” Said a representative from Griffin. The goal of this product was to make a very affordable improved grip over the A2 grip. “It features a more vertical grip angle and deletes the annoying finger shelf that nobody really likes.”, He went on to state.

Griffin Armament Furniture Kit

The RailShield™ panel kit sections are 4.6” long ensuring that you can get a full hand grip on the panels protecting your hand from thermal transfer of a hot rail if you are going through a lot of ammo fast. The styling of the kit matches the A3 grip. Four pieces are included. The user has the option of running the bottom flat panel or palm stop panel. The palm stop geometry is placed as rearward as possible, again allowing a full hand grip while giving the shooter an anchor point to pull the gun hard into the shoulder pocket to control recoil and grab fast follow up shots.
