New Bump Fire Grip from JT Grip Coming Soon, Maybe?

jt-grips

When it comes to accessories that allow you to bump fire your rifle there’s a few big players in the market, Slide Fire Solutions and Bump Fire Systems. There’s also a few others out there, and you can always make them yourself. Well there’s a new guy on the scene named JT Grip. Most of the bump fire products out there make you replace the entire stock with a big and usually ugly setup. The folks over at JT Grip have an interesting new bump fire system that only requires you to replace the pistol grip.

The new JT Grip is in the works for both AR-15 and AK-47 variant rifles (these are not legal for pistols). The replacement grip can be switched from a locked position for normal shooting or unlocked for bump firing. They’re going to be made out of reinforced Nylon here in the USA. While I’ve never been interested in owning any of the other bump fire products currently available the JT Grip actually isn’t too bad, it actually seems to work pretty well. Check it out in action below.

So why the maybe? JT Grip has been working on their product for quite a while, but their site jtgrip.com has the following statement:

JT Grip Solutions is suspending release of the bump fire pistol grip that we have been working on for over two years. This result stems from the high cost of replacement tooling after working with a less than honest supplier, and from the failure to secure a working relationship between JTGS and Slide Fire Solutions. The eight months spent in negotiations with SF produced no agreement.

JTGS is now positioned to sell off our technology, the complete tooling, and the social media accounts. Our tooling is ready to produce product and we will include our tool-ready future designs. Our Patent Application is 1.5 years old and still pending.

But wait! JT Grip recently posted the video below on their YouTube channel with an update on what’s going on with their bump fire grips. They said tooling is done and the product is ready for production, however after some issues with Slide Fire they’ve decided to just wait until their patent is approved to move forward. I hope they do release these in the near future.

    So why isn’t this legal on a pistol?

    • Bradley

      Didn’t make sense to me.

    • Slvrwrx

      Supposedly because the ATF determined that for it to work, you need two hands, and a pistol is designed to be fired with 1 hand. The Chopping Block has a video of this unit on his YouTube channel. Does have a learning curve..

      • Porty1119

        If the overall length is 26″ or greater, what you’re holding is a “firearm”, not a pistol.

        • KoyoteTan

          That’s what they said, so most AR pistols with a barrel over 11″ should be good, but AK pistols require nearly carbine length barrels to be legal 26″+ OAL so makes less sense. AR buffer junk in the trunk makes them good “firearm” candidates non-NFA.

        • Slvrwrx

          Correct and that’s why the AK in the video has the long ass barrel on it. It’s not a pistol, but a firearm..

  • Lee Enfield

    “Work with Slidefire” = We have an agreement that Slidefire won’t sue us into oblivion.

  • PK

    It will be interesting to see if the USPTO approves the JT Grip, the ChuckBuster grip, both, or neither. I think the ChuckBuster patent was submitted slightly earlier, but I’m not 100% certain. Nearly the same concept in both, though the ChuckBuster is approved on pistols.

    • Josh McRoberts

      What’s the ChuckBuster grip?

  • dshield55

    Ray, not sure why you’d be excited about this but not the bumpfire stocks. As you can see in the videos, you can’t shoulder the guns if you want this to work. With the bumpfire stocks, it’s a very natural feeling to shoot once you figure out the sweet spot. This doesn’t look appealing (having used bumpfire stocks quite a bit.)

  • Rick O’Shay

    If the price is proportional to the fact that it’s a grip (meaning, less than a Slide Fire stock), I’d buy one. I’ll be keeping an eye out.

    • Tim Barrera

      The owner is over on weapons guild and made reference to price coming in around $50 +/-

      • Ryfyle

        Neato. Way better than shelling out 300 for a stock.

  • Andrew Miller

    Well…
    If one comes out for the 10-22, I’m there.

    • KoyoteTan

      No reason the AR version couldn’t work with a chassis that interfaces with an AR trigger. You’d need a really light chassis and super light trigger though. Bumpfire is hard with 22 given lack of recoil.

  • 🐒👊

    No sights on the AR, because your not gonna need em anyway.

    • thedonn007

      Yea, you beat me to it. I was going to say who needs sights when you are just going to bumpfire anyway.

  • iksnilol

    What ever happened to a fast trigger finger?

    • Billy Jack

      A decent finger and a better trigger seem a better investment but I don’t even play video games anymore.

  • KoyoteTan

    I contacted him and he told me soon. I think that web message is outdated. Someone with web skills want to help him with a better CMS? I’d do it, but no time right now.

  • Harry’s Holsters

    I’ve been wondering how long it would be before someone made this concept work. This may be worth trying out for the right price. Fun for range!

    I know it’d be more fragile but I wish someone would come out with a grip like this that allows the slide fire portion to snap on and off. That’d make it easy for myself to justify.

  • USMC03Vet

    No it was a big year + long troll. Having following this product since the beginning on AK Files the thread was such a massive disappointment.

    • Josh McRoberts

      Explain what your saying is not trolling and what JTGS has done, is.
