Pretty neat but that is one ugly grip.

I kinda like it. I wouldn’t mind having one.

Hint Hint…anyone?

Christmas is coming…I can send you my mailing address. :wink:

A different look and feel and maybe will catch on, but right now at 400 bucks for a stripped lower, they are too proud of them.

Exactly, and personally, I don’t like the idea of going back and forth between two different methods of trigger operation…muscle memory is an SOB to mess with (guess I’m just too old lol).

I would try one but I wouldn’t buy one to try it. Why? Because I think it’s a solution in search of a problem.

What a bunch of whooy! I can only see this as an advantage for a very select few that are missing digits or have other physical issues with their hand. Absolutely not a fighting rifle, strictly a novelty for the bench. When Karl says it works well I MIGHT try it…why on earth would I care what a man that hasn’t shot for 2 1/2 years has to say about it!!!

Same here, i’m too old to learn to shoot a different way. I would try one if somebody I knew had one, but never buy one.

I like the idea from an innovation standpoint. It’s nice to see something new and refreshing brought to market.

:-1:

On the other hand (pun intended): I’m an old dog uninterested in a new trick. I also know at least two guys who probably wouldn’t ever be able to get their thumb in between the guard -not to mention what a gloved hand would do to confound the action.

One of the arguments given is that it reduces side to side movement. In a rifle that’s minimal due to the many points of contact. Now in a handgun that argument might hold water but it could also raise other issues. Since it doesn’t exist in a handgun it can’t be tested.

I was also unimpressed with the groups shown by their test subjects at 15 and 25 yards. It was like all of them had never seen a rifle before.

Something isn’t ringing true about this. I just feels “off” to me.

Not bad groups considering he hadn’t shot for 2 1/2 years! That tells you a bunch right there, the manufacturer knew he needed to push his wares to an inexperienced and uneducated in guns crowd to make a sale. Doubt they will be sending a T&E to anyone that actually knows something about shooting AR rifles or shooting in general for that matter.

single long range shot platform for sure where you may be sending something down range every odd minute but as a carried and used fighting rifle it actually would be hard to carry in a ready to shoot. Almost like going to war with a featureless California special. The thing that adds stability in our grip is the fact we have opposable thumbs and unlike the trigger on a joystick our hand (fingers, thumb and all parts attached to the wrist) also has to support the rifle. I also see issues with going from carried wrapped hand grip to a “trigger” grip during a stress situation.

Sorry but I think it’s a dumb idea.

Same here. All of my AR’s had the same drop-in trigger setups…before the :boat:

I have no desire to re-learn a new system and establish new muscle memory after so many years. However, I am curious about the design and would like to test fire one. The concept sounds cool, but it would require a lot of people to pull their thumbs out of their asses. :rofl:
