Lanco Tactical Introduces GripStop Mod2

Lanco Tactical released their original GripStop for non-picatinny handguards earlier this year. The new Mod 2 version attaches to picatinny rails.

Lanco Tactical LLC is pleased to announce the Grip Stop™ Mod 2. The Grip Stop™ Mod 2 is the next step in the evolution of the original Grip Stop™ design. It takes the original Grip Stop™ and adds the ability to mount it directly onto any standard 1913 Picatinny rail. The original Grip Stop™ was the culmination of a brainchild design by a former U.S. Marine Corps combat veteran to fill the void between using a vertical grip and hand stop. It allows a variable angle grip to prevent locking the wrist. Use as an assist to the modern “C grip” technique or as a barrier stop. The Grip Stop™ Mod 2 is 100% designed and made in the USA. It is made from solid billet aluminum and then hard coat anodized black.

The Grip Stop™ Mod 2 fits: MK-18 Block 2 (Daniel Defense); Heckler & Koch 416 & M27 IAR; KAC MK-11, MK-12 & M110 Sniper Rifles; Standard Issue M-16A4, M4 & M4A1; Any Mil-Std 1913 Picatinny Rail. With a weight of just over 3 oz. the Grip Stop™ Mod 2 will not add unwanted weight to a weapon.

The MSRP is  $54.95.

    Looks like a snag fest waiting to happen

    Why is it that I can buy a forward grip for practically nothing, but a 90″ piece of plastic costs no less than $50. I’ve tried to find stuff like this for less. They don’t make them

      90 degree, whoops, 90″ of plastic 😛

        Also made of aluminum. Or did you not bother reading the article?

          Why bother making it out of aluminum? Seems a perfect candidate for plastic.

          eh, really talking about these handstops in general. I couldn’t care less it’s made of aluminum. handstops are unusually overpriced is what I was saying. I’ll admit I skimmed it. As long as it secures in place I don’t care what it costs and seeing how popular Magpul and Tapco Products are, mostly made of polymer, I doubt others would either. But thank you for pointing out that it is made out of aluminum.

      If it helps any, I saw a neat DIY guide on arfcom about making a handstop out of a Glock grip extension for a Magpul MOE handguard. It would also work for standard carbine handguards or slick free-float handguards (like the Apex GatorGrip or Troy Alpha rail).
      If you’re interested, the title of the thread was “Add a handstop to your MOE handguard for $6.60,” but the author used a special discount and spare parts so it will cost you a little more than $6.60.
