After years of trial, error and testing of every pistol grip we could get out hands on, our current assessment is that the Magpul K-Grip is the best option available… especially after it has received the Valkyrie Combat custom touch! Designed as a drop-in upgrade for the standard AR15/M16 pistol grip, The MOE-K Grip provides a low profile, compact design and steeper grip angle compared to more traditional styles. With a more vertical grip angle optimized for use on PDW (Personal Defense Weapon) configurations, the MOE-K Grip improves comfort and control on rifles that bring the primary hand in closer to the shooter's body or body armor. The slim profile also makes it an excellent choice for shooters who prefer a smaller grip circumference.
With its slim profile, and reduced grip angle, it already has a lot going for it. The ergonomics are simple and effective, and it is incredibly lightweight. The only problem we had with it was the texture, or lack thereof. Have no fear! Valkyrie Combat has customized each of these K-Grips by hand using the same tried and true stippling methods they apply to polymer framed handguns. PFC Cadre have the Valkyrie Combat “V-Grip” on their rifles and highly recommend them to anyone and everyone who owns a rifle built on the AR-15 platform.
