While barrels, receivers, handguards, and other parts have a huge amount of options, the often overlooked end-plate is getting some love from Griffin Armament. Other options often focus on various attachment methods, Griffin instead took a different approach putting form in front of function with their C2E Contour Connect End Plate.
The outside shape is designed specifically for forged receiver sets, where often the end plate is decided smaller than the back of the receiver. Towards the receiver, its flat, but the rear is chamfered nicely giving the plate a higher-end look.
Designed for seamless lines on a forged receiver set, the C2E does keep some function, including an 8-position anti-rotation Q/D socket. The C2E is manufactured from heat-treated ordnance steel and is manganese phosphated. Logos and external markings are kept to a minimum, with only a laser-engraved Griffin Armament logo present to remind one the manufacturer.
