Default Featureless grip options

So Iím doing a few builds, first one is a regular carbine. I plan on pinning the stock and putting a thread protector over the threads

Second is a 20Ē upper with a fixed A2 stock. I plan on doing the same with the thread protector on the muzzle.

What are the best options for the grips on these 2 builds. I have been looking at sparrow dynamics compliant grip. Would this grip work with the 2 builds listed above? Or does anyone have any better options?

Thanks for sharing that grip, I think I might pick one up and combine it with a fixed Magpul MOE stock. I'd say it probably will be fine with your builds.

What are you concerned about with the grip.

Just proper fitment. Been a long time since I’ve done a build. Also looking for scope recommendations.

Our grip will work great with your builds you are planning, but anyone planning to use an A2 or other fixed stock should read this first.

One thing I noticed is the safety selector on most of these have to be converted to LH. Is there any options out there where there is no safety selector modification?

Sparrow sells their safety and you can “reverse” it (still using your right hand, trigger finger). So down position will be safe and forward will be fire vs the traditional setup where the back position is safe and down is fire. Hope that makes sense??
I’m a southpaw and that’s how I have it setup on the 60 degree position. I love it, compliments their grip. It’s almost a must if you buy their grip. Maybe sparrow should do a bundle deal!?!!..just saying.

Every featureless grip I know of doesn't really allow you to fully reach the safety on the opposite side of the rifle. Maybe to flip it to fire, but not back to safe. Unless you have an extra joint in your extra long thumb. Hence the ambi switch for right handers. When shooting left handed, you can reach the mil spec safety but it is is a totally awkward position. If you are shooting right handed, it would be beneficial to have an ambi safety and try to flip the right lever 180 degrees.

Our ambi safety just has a feature that others do not have that makes it better for featureless grips. The levers can be mounted in 6 different positions. It is not required to shoot and enjoy your rifle... it just makes for a better experience with any featureless grip.

"Best" depends on you. There are many options to consider.

We're going to need LOT more info about how you want to use the rifle(s), your budget, etc. before anyone can begin making recommendations.

Otherwise, this is just like asking strangers over the internet, "I need a recommendation on a car to buy."

I hear ya lol. Was looking for something in the 3x12-16 power range with adjustable turrets. Ended up ordering a vortex diamond back tactical 4x12. I liked the idea of the m-223 scopes but I will be rarely shooting standard 55gr loads.


After looking at the options Iím gonna go with a sparrow dynamics on tg carbine and a ledge grip on the varmit rifle. Thanks for the input.

On a side note do you think it would be asking for trouble going with this muzzle brake? Was planning on just going with thread protectors but I like the look of the original flash hider. I just don’t want to get in trouble because someone doesn’t know the difference between a muzzle brake and a flash hider.

I do like the Sparrow. Went with the thread protector route.
