The folks at Ergo Grips have been busy this year. They announced a slew of new stuff for AR-type rifles, the Mossberg 500 shotgun and even the Ruger LCR revolver. Here’s a quick rundown.
Ruger LCR / LCRX Delta Grip
Last year Ergo caused a stir in the snubby revolver world by launching the Ergo Delta grip. With looks more like a slice of pizza duct taped to the frame of the gun, it’s non-traditional, to say the least. Until you pick it up. The Delta Grip is shockingly natural. I also find that it points far better (for me) than any standard snubby revolver grip. Normally when I pick up a gun like a J-frame or Ruger LCR, it wants to point high – I have to adjust to bring the muzzle lower. Not so with the Delta Grip – I’ll be getting one for my LCR .357. MSRP is $29.99.
KeyMod Forward Rail
While traditional, those A2 style front sights and gas blocks really get in the way. Ergo has come up with a front rail segment that mounts to the A4 front sight tower, offering attachment real estate for lights, lasers or electric chainsaws. MSRP is $129.99.
KeyMod Hand Stop / Barricade Stop
This nifty little accessory mounts to a KeyMod rail and provides a small flat textured surface to brace your rifle. Even if you’re not all tactical for your day job, it’s a handy accessory for three gun shooting as it helps give you a stable hold while shooting from behind barriers. You can also use it with your support hand as a brace for pulling the rifle back into your shoulder. MSRP is $49.99.
UltraLite 2-Piece KeyMod Handguards
Designed for A2 configurations, these handguards are a snap to install. They’re ultra thin and light, using the KeyMod system to attach gear only where you need to. This is one you have to handle to appreciate. The svelte forend lets you wrap your hand all the way around if you want to get all Costa-tactical. Available in black, earth or green Cerakote finish, you can also get them in two patterns. MSRP is around $176.47 depending on which model you choose.
KeyMod Mini Max Vertical Forward Grip
You guessed it – more KeyMod compatible gear. This is a short forend vertical grip. At just a couple inches tall, it gives you enough to hold onto without spoiling your ability to shoot prone. MSRP is $39.99.
Mossberg 500 KeyMod Rail
Last but not least is an accessory for Mossberg 500 type shotguns. This aluminum rail circles the magazine tube and provides KeyMod attachment points at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions. The barrel rides at the 12 o’clock position, hence no attachment points there. It’s slim and unobtrusive – barely larger than the magazine tube itself. This one retails for $109.99.
