Talon Grips for Magpul’s AK Furniture

Talon Grips

Talon Grips is one of those American success stories: an individual comes up with a solution for a problem he is experiencing, and seeing a hole in the market, offers the solution to others. Finding value in the product, the market responds and a company is born.

In 2009, the company’s founder wanted to improve his ability to hold onto his department issued Glock 21 in the blistering Arizona summer heat. With an X-Acto knife and skateboard tape, he fashioned his first Talon Grips product. When others saw what he had done, demand kicked in and a company was formed.

Fast forward some seven years and the company now offers a wide range of grip enhancing products for all kinds of firearms. Its latest offering are the enhancements for Magpul’s MOE AK furniture.

For the MOE pistol grip, Talon Grips offers a pair of enhancement options: one with a granulated texture and another with a rubber texture. Both versions offer high coverage on the backstrap, full coverage on both sides and additional coverage under the trigger guard. Both versions retail for $17.99.

Talon Grips also offers the same two texture options for the MOE AK hand guard. These grip enhancers are properly cut for the specific mold of the Magpul hand guard. Both texture varieties sell for $17.99.

    Great products and great company. Own a set for every handgun i own.

    They really need to strengthen the adhesive. They almost always start to peel off within the first month of using them. The only ones that have lasted for me are the ones that I put on my Glock 20, and that’s probably because I don’t shoot it as much as my other pistols.

      Aren’t Talon Grips designed to be a wear item? They aren’t supposed to last forever.

        I’ve had ones start to peel off on dedicated home defense pistols that I rarely even touch.

          Well dang.
          I’ve had a Falcon grip from Glockstore for years, and I just ordered a set of Talon grips for my XDM.
          Maybe you got a lemon? I hope that’s not their standard.

      Kinda agree. I’ve had one on my EDC SIG P320 subcompact. Felt great, gave me better purchase. But within a week the backstrap started peeling. Now the whole bottom half is gone. Wish they lasted longer…

    always take the time to properly clean and degrease when using anything that adheres to something else. I even use a quick solvent wipe-down when adding a new sticker to the toolbox. Your rattle-can paintjobs and stickers will benefit, greatly sometimes.
