The packaging is informative and simple.
It needed a bit of a file work for a perfect fit on my NFA 9mm lower. It is quite tough. I had to hit it with a rubber mallet many times during the fitting process. In the end the grip feels very solid and It is very comfortable. Even those who are not going featureless should consider this grip... it's that comfortable... I like the light texture. I like the addition of the star and stripes and the logo.. over all it is pleasing to the eye and was very well thought out.
All of my compliant grips will be replaced with the sparrow grip.... thanks
Thank you so much for this review! We really do appreciate the feedback from everyone. Nice 9mm too!

Gray grips are coming soon that will match the Magpul Stealth Gray.

Hi, I'm almost ready to order based on the input of other Calgunners. I have one question though. Why are there no finger grooves or something more ergonomic than just a straight slant on the bottom?

Finger grooves may fit well for some but may not be comfortable for others. A flat surface ensured a comfortable fit. I believe that Glock has removed the finger grooves on the Gen5 for that same reason... Just my 2Ę

That would be my same 2Ę. Some people like finger grooves but many people hate them. Our grip is quite comfortable without them.

I wrote a FAQ page about our grip with fixed stocks. Please excuse the blog software/format... it works for now. :/

FAQ with Fixed Stocks

Maybe this will help answer your question how it works with the PRS stock.

P.S. I have used photos with permission but may have missed one. If I used your photo and you don’t want me to, just let me know and I will immediately remove it. Thanks!

Curious if you though about a cap or plug to turn the open portion of the grip into a storage compartment? It would be an awesome idea

Yes, we are working on an innovative grip storage solution that will work will all our existing grips. We are very busy, so hopefully we can finish that soon. It will require molds (which take time), so please be patient. We will notify everyone when that is available.

Awesome!
Coincidence: The gray version went live 3/30/18 shortly after you posted this.

It was a difficult process to color match Magpul Stealth Gray, but it was worth it.

I bought 5 a couple of weeks ago and missed the sale. This is the best featureless grip I've fingered so far. Looks good too. Now I don't need to take my old pistol grips to AZ anymore. I no longer look like a California dork.

We really appreciate the compliments!
I'm sorry you missed the sale, but I'm glad you don't look like a California dork anymore!

I had no interest in owning an AR until CA told me that I couldn't. Finally building out the lower I bought before gunmageddon. Sent my Thordsen gen3 back for a refund and picked up one of your grips along with a stockstop. Much easier on the wallet and looks just as good if not better!

That sounds just like my gun buying story. The gun grabbers don't realize how good they are at gun sales.

Thanks! That's awesome! We appreciate the kind comments and your business.

Hey, folks. In other threads I've been mentioning a tennis grip tape solution to the rub/scrap castlenut issue for those of us whose thumb joint reaches that high when using the Sparrow Dynamics grip. Here are some pics:







Can't vouch for that last photo being a completely accurate representation of my grip, but it's close enough to show the general idea. This tape comes in several colors, but I thought the basic mat black would match best, and it did. I like this solution better than electrical or other sticky tapes because this stuff is soft, and also provides a good grip, sweat absorbent surface should you need it.

Got my grip in the mail, quick shipping, quality product, it was a little snug on the fit but nothing concerning. Once it’s locked down and installed the fit is really exact so there are no gaps anywhere. I hate that I have to make a change, but getting over that, I’m pretty happy with it. I feel like I can manipulate the firearm similar to my previous set up just a little more awkward. I will need to switch to an ambi selector and they have one that does look compelling, just pushing off that purchase for a bit. Trigger work is actually not bad, I can reach the trigger easy and it feels natural pulling the trigger, where it really feels different is mostly just moving, transitioning and holding the rifle one handed. I’ve played around with grips that have a fin and this is where why I chose the angled grip, even though it feels kinda awkward I can still hold the rifle one handed. I do not feel comfortable holding he rifle one handed with a fin type grip. I do hit the buffer tube and castle nut so I might do the same thing as above with grip tape of come kind to smooth out the hard edges that are irritating. Overall happy with my purchase and if I can’t have my MOE+ this is the next best thing.

Thanks to everyone for your support!

Also, don't forget to vote in the primary. It is important.

Has anyone switched from a gen II Thordsen to a Sparrow? If so - thoughts?

I love the way the Thordsen feels, but not looks.

Have you played with the idea of an interchangeable grip style interchangeable backstrap style? Like how The ATI scorpion grip has a rubber backstrap u can slide on and off and affix via a screw. I would imagine if it were possible on your platform that it would have to be structurally strong enough to hold the weight of the rifle which is a challenge because mutual areas between a featureless and pistol grip is small and just that square area under the end plate.

Are you guys considering an extra long lever option for those of us who want to continue using our thumb to actuate the safety?

Since I had a Luth MBA-2 and just received a Sparrow, I set out to modify the Luth stock to provide thumb clearance.

Removed the segment of the stock just above the grip.



Still not enough room for my fat thumb, so machined a bit from the round portion above the grip.



Good clearance now. Here's the assembled rifle.
