This unitized stock/grip is the same length as an A1 stock and uses all standard AR parts Ė tube, buttplate, screws, swivel, etc. The A2 length version is the same but about 1Ē longer.

This grip uses a standard grip screw, and is shown with an A2 stock, but also works with an A1 stock.

This grip caught the interest of a localÖ Basically the same as the above pic, but with a thumb shelf on each side.

These grips and stock allow the rifle to be grasped and fired in nearly the same exact orientation as a normal AR, except for the thumb remaining on the same side of the grip as the hand. Thereís no way to wrap a thumb or web of the hand around any part of these grips and still be able to reach the trigger. Iíll post some pics of the AK, FAL and G3 versions in the next few days.

whats the "unitized stock/grip" made of?

looks like a coating over a regular a2 stock and grip.

dude you are evil.

i now regret deferring my original intentions of a dissipator or 20" in favor of a tacticool carbine.

woe is my bank account.

Are these prototypes or production pieces we're looking at? I really, really like the bottom grip with the thumb shelf.

Very nice stocks indeed. So, are these prototypes? And if so, any idea when they'll be available for sale? And any idea on the ballpark price?

I think they all look great!

I like the grip/stock in the first picture, coz it's one piece. The grip in the other pics looks similar to the monsterman grip. Any idea if these are home made? Or, really for sale?

Sorry for the delay, I havenít been able to check in as much lately.

Fjold Ė The bunny checked it out while I was on the phone. I think that the resident bunnies, squirrels, raccoons, skunksÖ know that I now only hunt inanimate objects.

Iíve been working with resins and composites for 20 years, so it wasnít too difficult to get these to look and function equivalently to the original parts. These are resin and Kevlar cloth over a foam core. Although quite durable, that isnít cost effective in quantity.

Iíll have some pics of the urethane grips by the weekend, and expect to have them available by the end of the month for anyone interested. The stocks will take a little longer. If anyone is familiar with the Sully Stock, thatís an example of a urethane stock.

Thanks for the compliments!

Nice. I have the grip that came with my RRA lower kit that I modded like the second pic. the only difference is the rear curvature. On mine the bottom of the grip is flat like stock, and the new insert part curves a little inward as it reaches the A2 stock.

I like the seperate one a lot better than the 1 piece. Because the AR is built on so many seperate parts that are removable and interchangable, the rear section looks weird as 1 whole piece. Very nice work though.

Here's an AK stock.

Although it's technically possible to somewhat reduce the overall size of the grip areas, resulting in a sleeker look, while still preventing a thumb/web wraparound, I feel that it is extremely important to include a safety factor to help avoid any remote possibility of misinterpretation.

That AK stock is the straw that broke the camels back, in terms of me wanting one. Up until now I felt that you had to compromise to much on the appearance to stay legal. That stock is the cats a*s! Good job!

I love both the complete and seperated stocks/grips! Make and sell them!

Also, could you make something for an ACE fixed skeleton stock? I really need a grip that mates up perfectly with the lower metal piece on the ACE stock.

Willing to make a custom one with a thumb rest?

Here's a better photo of an AR grip with the thumb rest.

I'll have a better idea on price in the next week or so, but expect it to be in the same general range as the other great options.

Please put me down for a thumb-shelf model.

This is exactly what I need.

Any plans on adding texture to the grip? I would be in for one.

I wasnít able to get pics of the newer AR grips yet, so in the meantime I can share an HK91 series grip.

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y82/cala4/ptra.jpg

It's on an HK SR9 (off list). It fits HK91 clones and compatible rifles, PTR-91, CETME, G3, HK 911, etc., with a metal lower. Unfortunately, due to variability in the shape and fitment of the stocks, lowers and backplates across all of these (not surprising considering their combined manufacturing/surplus history), itís difficult to get a grip that fits all of them without a small gap.

If anyone is curious, yes, after hooking the lower with the grip to the upper receiver, you still have room to slide on the backplate/stock assembly. The grip must always be attached to the lower when on the rifle, due to the metal part of the frame that extends down into the grip.

Thanks,

Yeah any plans on adding some texture to them? that would put the icing on the cake.

I'm planning on getting a PTR-91, and that grip would be perfect for it to keep it a detachable mag OLL.

Just curious, does the 'thumb shelf' add any risk to the stock being interpreted as a 'thumb hole stock'? I know that logically there is a huge difference between a hole and a shelf, but what about legally?

Your grips and stocks look great. Are you planning on producing them for sale?
Would you do one offs? In either case do you have any ballpark prices? Or timelines for availability?

I've been waiting for something like this for a while. Let us know when it's for sale.
