Tyrant Designs, known for their CNC machined aluminum grips, has announced the upcoming release of their LWP grip. The LWP, or “Lightweight Pro” grip is designed for ultra-light applications. The new grip was conceptualized to be lighter than even polymer offerings while not sacrificing strength.*
The grip is CNC machined from a single block of billet aluminum and then anodized black. To get the weight reduction, the interior of the grip is milled out and unlike other grips, the sides of the grip are in-set (which one will either love or hate). Other features include contoured finger grooves up front and a knurling on the backstrap of the grip.
Pricing is set at $104.95 retail. Multiple colors are available at launch including black, red, blue, and grey. Introductory pricing is currently live on Tyrant Design’s website at $99.95. All colors are Type III hard coat anodized.
*Note – the MagPul MIAD is a heavy beast (relatively speaking), but the LWP does not beat other polymer offerings including the Moe SL grip (2.8 ounces) and similar.
Highlights from the Press Release:
The Lightweight Pro tips the scales at 3.4 ounces and is lighter than the majority of available grips currently on the market. ( Yes we mean polymers too) ! We set out to create the lightest, most ergonomic grip on the market without compromising the structural integrity and quality. It is CNC machined from a single piece of aerospace grade aluminum and has a knurled back strap for additional adhesion. It instantly gives the operator the confidence needed in any weather or scenario, all while maintaining the consistency needed for a light weight build. Despite its lightweight it is incredibly durable and does not feel flimsy in the hand. If you are looking for the perfect grip for your lightweight build, look no further than the LWP!
