Hogue, the company known for manufacturing everything from grips to stock to specialty knives, is coming out with new 3-piece furniture kits for ARs and M16s. The new kits include a beavertail grip, collapsible buttstock, and a free-floating rifle-length forend. Each piece is made with Hogue’s OverMolded rubber for durability and performance, and, as Ryder Jones, the Director of Sales and Marketing, said, “That makes for a cool, comfortable, great-looking, straight-shooting AR.”
Features for each piece area as follows: the grip is designed to be ergonomically correct with palm swells, carefully placed finger grooves, and a cobblestone finish for a positive grip; the buttstock has a polymer stub designed to make shouldering the gun snag-free and has three sling mounts; the forend is made of 6061-T6 anodized aluminum with Hogue’s OverMolded rubber for heat resistance and comfort. In addition, a threaded rail extension with various rails made of polymer and aluminum is included. Hogue’s custom “Black Gun Wrench” is also included as an alternative to a strap wrench.
The kits come in black, OD Green, Flat Dark Earth, Ghillie Green, Ghillie Earth, Pink, Purple, and Red Lava. Each kit also comes with installation tools, a MIL-Spec buffer tube, buffer spring, hardware, a swivel stud, and a swivel sleeve.
