Many find the pistol grip to be the
first and most important upgrade for their AR due to its increased comfort
and low cost compared to most other upgrades. Over the past decade,
the angle of AR pistol grip has been a major factor in deciphering between
the different options on the market. The ATG™ grip is the first and only
fully functional adjustable angle AR pistol grip. Please ensure the grip
is properly installed and tightened prior to use. Now, here is a
quick history lesson on where, when, and why each angle was introduced:
This angle is based on the “A2 grip”
originally seen in the 1960’s. At this time the only AR style weapons
were equipped with a full length fixed rifle stock, and common shooting
stances included an “elbow out” and more upright stance. This angle
tends to be a top choice while shooting with an upright stance and/or a
full length or fully extended stock.
With the introduction of the collapsible
stock, combined with the introduction a modern shooting stances which
focus on a compact stance, many found the A2 grip to be too much angle.
In the late 90’s, and early 2000’s several AR accessories
manufacturers began offering grips similar to this angle. This angle
serves as a great middle option. Shooters preferring the 33 degree
angle may find this angle to be ideal from shooting with a shorter stock
or when requiring quick engagement. And shooters preferring the 17 degree
angle may find this is the ideal angle when using a full length stock or
from the prone position.
The newest angle of the three is
relatively new to the AR market, but the angle very close to many stock
grips on other sporting rifles dating back over 50 years. With the
further advancement of the company modern shooting techniques, a tight
“elbow in” stance with a collapsed or partially collapsed stock the
demand a more vertical pistol grip became apparent. On a military and LE
side many find this angle to be ideal, promoting quick engagement and
improved control when engaging from a vehicle or in close quarters combat.
Having the ideal pistol grip angle will
reduce wrist fatigue while increasing accuracy and comfort. For the
recreational shooter, the ideal angle is strongly driven by personal
preference. You are encouraged to try all three angles in all of
your favorite stances and uses of your rifle.
Remember, safety first, and always have
Do I need to remove the mounting screw to adjust?

How do I know which setting I am on?
There are three scribe markings on the back of the grip,
simply line it up to the desired setting and tighten down.
What does the grip weigh?
The grip weighs 77 grams. For reference the A2 (stock) grip
weighs 68+ grams and other aftermarket grips weigh 80-100+ grams.
What creates the strength of the ATG™?
The strength comes
from its mechanical design which includes the tapered interlocking teeth,
stainless steel bolt, and locking washer. This combination allows the grip to
function as a single piece grip at any of the three angles.
Is there any movement within the grip caused by recoil, etc?
No, so long as the grip is properly installed and fully
tightened down there is zero movement.
Will the same shooter find different angles more comfortable
at different times?
Yes, in all of our
test markets each shooter found at least two different angles they preferred
during particular drills and stances. The main driving force behind changing
the angle are stock length and stance.
