Guess I should've just posted an image rather than link the thread. A clear panel was what I was suggesting.

Looking for some user feedback - for those of you with AK platform rifles, do you prefer grip wraps or the Strike Industries Simple featureless grip?

Please redirect this post if it’s more appropriate in another thread.

Thanks in advance everyone..

It really doesn't matter, anything preventing proper grip on the AK will feel funky. I have an SI grip on my Yugo under folder, and it feels OK, but no different than my Vepr, WASR, and Polish AK all with wraps. What I did find interesting is that even though I am right handed, I prefer a left hand molded grip wrap. Having a flat, and consistent surface to sit my palm on feels better than a less than adequate back strap curve.

Thanks for the information, maxx.. that left hand grip wrap perspective is good to know

Per the OP- “Put a Exile Machine backfin on my CZ Scorpion via an AR grip adapter” - use the grip fin with a Magpul Ar grip

Default SCR is the answer!

In my Humble Opinion the Fight Lite SCR is the best solution to the Featureless AR rifle. Best ergonomics out there and much better looking as well.

Here's mine: Additional 24" upper coming soon.

The handguard needed to be notched to get the upper to mate with the lower. The Dremel got away from me a lil bit. It's gonna get painted soon so I'm not worried about it

I can't really tell the color of that stock buffer tube, but I bet one of our OD green grips would look great on that too.

Isn't that a thumbhole stock in that configuration since the buffer tube and the stock are touching?

No- they're not touching. I can put at least 3 pieces of paper through it. Just hard to see the space with the lighting

I pulled the trigger, so to speak, on two different grips. I chose the Sparrow Dynamics compliant grip and the spikes industries megafin. I like them both compared to the traditional fin, but I favor the Sparrow grip because I can put my thumb over the grip (with a pinned MOE stock) and it feels more like a traditional grip. The angle of the megafin however is more like a pistol grip angle and the thumb rest offers a secure grip. The one complaint I have with the megafin is that it forces my trigger finger too far into the triggerguard so that my second knuckle is on the trigger. The sparrow grip won't work on my UBR stock because there isn't enough clearance for my thumb, but at this point, its my favorite compliant grip so far, but does cost more than the other options,about $50 in my case.
