No need to even respond to that gibberish OP.

A year ago I never thought I'd go featureless on my ARs. But it was very easy to pin the stock, add a brake, and buy 2 Strike Industries Mega Fin grips. The grips have a thumb shelf and overall feel pretty darn good to me-- no not as good as the Ergo grips I had before but I'm still able to hold each AR w one hand upside down, etc-- they work for me.

And taking the BB off was liberating in a way. So while not perfect, I'm very happy I went the featureless route and still very much enjoy my AR's.

I'm surprised I haven't seen the Strike Industries 2nd generation Mega Fin Grips mentioned more- that thumb shelf helps me A TON.

Exactly the same experience as me. The thumb shelf helps. And the standard mag release makes a big difference, a silver lining to the BBAW ban.

If it was a bit harsh, rude, or esle don't take it as an manner. About 90% of the population do vote and that 10% don't. "Correct me if I'm WRONG" Sorry if I've already assume-accuse your an voter.

Your posts are a little difficult to interpret, I'm guessing you're English second-language? Don't take that the wrong way, just curious. It might help people get less offended by your posts if they understand you might not always mean what it seems like you're saying.

All there will be left will be manually operated.
This. Newsom's gonna sign whatever the CA legislature will pass. Only recourse is Federal Court, but in the meantime, expect featureless to get swept up in the next wave of bans.

Of course featureless will be in the next ban, but also fixed mag as well, it will simply be a total ban on ALL centerfire semiauto longguns, maybe even semiauto handguns as well. Remember NewSCUM wants to be "bold".

Probably because it's $40 and you can get a VAGPARCA for $6 shipped.

or the exile fin that attaches to the magpul MIAD grip for $25 bucks that also has a thumb shelf.

i believe exile even released the 3d printing file so you can print one at home if you don't want to buy from their store on amazon.

The Strike Industries MegaFin costs $40? I've got one that I just threw into my AR parts bin.

Removed it along w/a Magpul pistol grip and fixed stock off an AR10 that I bought recently and replaced all of them w/a Thordsen Gen III rifle stock which I like far better.

I much prefer the standard and extended mag releases on my RAW's to the bullet button or featureless variants I have.
Same here i can do whatever to mine as long as i stay within the federal guidelines have more than a featureless set up in ca and still have a normal mag release. Never had a BB version and dont think i could bother shooting a featureless version much rather get an m1a.

Yes.
The Strike Industries Simple Fin Grip is $10.
The simple grip does not have a thumb rest though.

the movable stock is w/e since as some said, you shoot with the stock in 1 position 90% of the time, so i just have solid stocks in the exact length i needed for upright shooting. it might be a bit troublesome for prone shooting but i can adapt.

muzzle device, doesn't really matter which way if it is a flash hider or brake or compensator to me.
Does the grip fin have to be permanently install or can you just take some plastic material, wrap it around any pistol grip, and now have a featureless rifle (baring not having the other mandatory scary features)?

That's a ridiculous price for a fin, which IMO sucks regardless of the price.

The $ would be much better spent on a Resurgent or Sparrow featureless grip instead.
