Guns Hogue Announces 15 Degree G10 Pistol Grip Recoil Staff February 15, 2016 0 COMMENT Hogue rubberized pistol grips for the AR15 have remained a popular choice since they debuted more than a decade ago. We’ve seen several new, more vertical, pistol grips in the last several years as a direct response to changes in training methodology. Hogue has thrown their hat into the ring–and done it in G10 to boot. Here’s what they have to say about their G10 Pistol Grip: Precisely crafted by Hogue’s expert engineers, this AR-15 / M16 grip feels like perfection and is designed to perform as such. “When designing this product, ergonomics was the number one priority; it just had to feel right. And of course, aesthetics was also a main concern; it had to look good too,” said Hogue Research and Design Supervisor, Gary Flynn. In terms of performance, this grip is ideal for any AR-15 / M16 user. “It’s for military, for custom builders, for anyone really! It simply feels comfortable for guys who just want to shoot.” Compared to the standard 30 degree angle grips for AR-15 / M16, the 15 degree angle allows for a comfortable and more natural hand position when entering combat. The stacking formation often used by the military in close quarter combat requires the rie to be square with the chest and for the elbows to be tight to the body, forcing the hand into a sharper angle. The Hogue vertical grip naturally meets the hand exactly in the proper position, making grip comfort effortless for the shooter. The grip also fits into one of the lightest weight classes on the market, weighing in at a mere 2.4 ounces. It was strategically designed with a hollow center for maximum weight efficiency and is composed of the highest quality G10 material available. Additionally, there is a recessed dish behind the trigger which heightens comfort and creates a smooth transition for the finger to the trigger. In anticipation of some builders’ needs, a clearance was also added in the top of the grip allowing for an upper receiver tensioning screw. Ultimately, this grip provides optimum comfort and safety when handling AR-15 pistols, and will also fit any other rearm that uses standard AR-15 / M16 grips. Hogue AR15 / M16 G10 grips come in Smooth or Piranha Grip finishes, and are available in Solid Black, G-Mascus® Red Lava, G-Mascus Dark Earth, and G-Mascus Green at an MSRP range of $99.95 – $119.95.
