VZ Grips who has long been an industry leader in manufacturing Micarta and G10, and Carbon Fiber pistol grips for some of the worlds most popular pistols recently announced they are bringing their technology and skills to the AR-15 market. The announcement from VZ Grips initially was rather vague on what textures and colors would be in the initial offering, but one thing that is known for sure is that there will be twenty different variants of their AR-15 grips in the very near future.
This move by VZ Grips seems to be a logical step in the companies gradual entrance into the AR-15 and rifle market. Recently they started to produce several types of textured rail covers for both M-Lok and KeyMod style fore rails. The recent news was also followed by a list of the texture patterns that VZ intends to release this initial batch of AR-15 grips in, the patterns are as follows.
- Alien G10
- Diamond Slant G10
- Frag G10
- Operator II G10
- Recon G10
VZ Grips is releasing these grips three days earlier than projected for people who have signed up on the companies web page. While these grips might not appeal to all AR-15 owners for a variety of reasons including their projected cost of $95, there is no denying that VZ Grips makes a fantastic product. I have used VZ Grips on several pistols over the years including my daily conceal carry sidearm and will say if these grips are anything like their other grips, they will be well worth the money you spend on them.
We hope you enjoyed this quick look at a brand new offering from VZ Grips. We have reached out to the company in the hopes of being able to perform some sort of test and evaluation process on them. As of the time of this article they haven’t returned our emails or phone calls. We here at the site are hoping that VZ Grips also has plans for AK-47 grips as well, we can always hope.
