Magpul Grip Core Lube Bottle

You know the little storage compartments in Magpul’s MOE and MIAD line of grips? I admit I never really keep anything in there even though I have Magpul grips on all my ARs and on my new M70 AK. Magpul actually has different core inserts for their grips that hold various spare parts such as a CR123A battery, AA/AAA battery or an AR bolt and firing pin. They’ve got a new grip core they’ve just released that actually holds a little 1/2 oz. lubrication bottle. It’s reusable and retails for $14.95 and fits Magpul’s MIAD Gen 1.1 (it actually comes with the bottle core already), MOE, MOE+, MOE K2, MOE K2+, MOE-AK, and MOE-AK+ grips.

    Perfect for R&R after a stressful day of doing Tier 1 Operator stuff…

  • iksnilol

    No Skittles storage? That’s weak, that’s not operator at all.

    In case you can’t see, I am shaking my head in disappointment.

    • Nicks87

      Skittles? Who cares about skittles. I can get a whole pack of starbursts in my grip.

  • Nicks87

    Necessary because those damn AR15s will jam up and malfunction like crazy if they are not constantly dripping with lube.

    • Dan

      Ah, we should use this and make an automatic oiler that constantly oils the BCG so that the AR won’t jam and kill ones of soldiers durning battle

        Tactical AR IV rig. You might be on to the next big seller.

  • Dat price tho. . . ?

  • USMC03Vet


    AR problems.

    • CommonSense23

      And machine gun, any auto loading rifle, sub guns, pistols, and even AKs. Basically any machine that has moving parts problem.

      • iksnilol

        Yeah, but ARs go through lube much faster. Like, *MUCH* faster.

        Most other things you just apply some motor oil once every while (about as often as you oil a door hinge) and problem solved.

        • CommonSense23

          You really don’t have much of a experience with ARs do you. You know a bone dry mil spec AR can go over 2000 rounds on average with out lube or cleaning.

          • iksnilol

            It possibly can, but how many people do it? Also, what kind of shooting are you doing? FA run and gunning or slow paced precision shooting?

          • CommonSense23

            Done it pretty much all. You are still depositing the same amount of carbon each shot with either full auto or letting the gun cool.

          • iksnilol

            Same amount of carbon, different amount of heat, especially when compared to piston designs like the M14 or AK. You do realize that heat affects the lubrication?

          • CommonSense23

            Yes, and my point is still that a AR can go thousands of rounds bone dry without lube or cleaning. The idea that the rifle needs to be dripping in lube is simple false.

      • Sickshooter0

        …and that’s why I carry rocks. I’ve never had one malfunction…

        • CommonSense23

          And when your rock breaks, you got two rocks.

  • Rich Guy

    This makes me glad I run an AK, I just use the blood of my enemies!

    • USMC03Vet

      Scum Chechen blood is the best lube for AK and tank tracks.

    • iksnilol

      Okay… that is a bit extreme… I just use diesel as solvent and some motor oil for lube.

      • Zachary marrs

        Huh, my ar gets the exact same treatment….

        I’ll let you know whenever it malfunctions

  • andrey kireev

    Didn’t know Magpul branching out into “Personal Care” products….

    • JSmath

      Underrated/unappreciated post.

  • C.

    My brother once thought it’d be a funny April Fool’s Day joke to replace the spare bolt and firing pin I store in the grip with some chocolate. I didn’t get back out to the range until the end of August…

  • R.Lopaka

    Get an Anderson AR.

  • Katie A

    What, you haven’t rigged your own yet? I’m disappointed.

  • schizuki

    There were stocks made for Colt cap-and-ball revolvers that had built-in canteens. I’m sure more than water sometimes made their way into them.

  • NDS

    I keep tax stamps in all mine, very handy. The CR123 core rattles slightly and was annoying.

  • ChristianC

    The grips will hold 6-7 loose rounds of 5.56 with a little bit of foam to keep them from moving.

  • jeff k

    how about joint grip ?? that way you can operate and then smoke a doobie after

  • gunslinger

    how long until a self lubrication system is integrated into the ar?

  • rooftopvoter

    I put the same grip on my Barrett 50; sort of hard to keep a spare round in there but you guys have given me ideas.
