New Hexmag Grip

Hexmag grip

Hexmag announced it will show a new AR-15 pistol grip at the SHOT Show next year. The new grip is called the Hexmag Tactical Grip and is a different product than the Hexmag Advanced Tactical Grip (or ATG) that was announced last year.

The new Hexmag Tactical Grip is a direct replacement for the standard AR pistol grip. It has a fuller appearance and uses the company’s standard hex pattern on the sides of the grip. On this model, Hexmag opted to use a soft rubber overmold to increase both comfort and control while carrying and shooting the rifle.

Hexmag built in finger grooves in the grip. I don’t like finger grooves, but I know a lot of people do. According to the company, the grip is hollow so items can be stored in it. No information was provided on if the company was using some sort of insert or cap to hold things in it.

These pistol grips will retail for $34.99.

The older ATG models use hard polymer without the rubber overmolding. Unlike the new Tactical Grip, the Advanced Tactical Grip allows you to adjust the grip angle (three choices: 17˚, 25˚ and 33˚) and does not have finger grooves. It has a suggested retail price of $27.99.

    Referring to an earlier article, these are the same guys that ripped off the actual designer, right? Why are you advertizing them? Assuming im not making a mistake on this one, did you forget about that, is the pay that good, or your values that cheap?

    • Rick O’Shay

      It’s not that they ripped off the original designer, it’s that the original designer was one of the original founders of the company and is the brother of one of the current executives. They just rewrote their company history to remove any and all mention of him, due to bad blood in the family. Or it caused bad blood. Chicken, egg.

    • Jack Morris

      I was about to post the same thing with a little less salt. They did a pretty in-depth article about how sketchy the owner of Hexmag is and how badly he screwed over the original brains behind the product. Now we see what amounts to an ad for the same company. Not in good taste.

  • DanGoodShot

    Wow an AR pistol grip. That’s so newsworthy. Lord knows we needed another one of those. It’s not like the market is flooded with them or anything… Can ya feel the sarcasm?.

    • JT303

      Perhaps there’s a person, one person, in the entire world, for whom every pistol grip so far has not felt ‘just right’. Perhaps they’ll try this grip, and it’ll be perfect. It’ll be everything they wished for. It’ll persuade them not to take 9mm mouthwash. Just maybe? No, no, it won’t happen. People will deal with what works, because there’s a lot of that on the market, and if they don’t like it, then they’re probably obsessive/resourceful enough to modify one to their liking.

        At this rate there WILL be a grip for each and every single individual. This creats a new dilemma though, it takes the “decisions decisions” thing and brings it to a whole new level. Like, decisions, decisions, decisions, decisions, decisions, decisions, decisions, decisions, oh… new ones?? decisions, decisions… etc, etc… I’m about to just rip off every grip and just throw a2’s on everything and damn the rest!! Fer 2 dollars I can stipple, mod, mold, puddy till my hearts content. If I screw it up who cares!

        • JT303

          With all the options available, you can buy a cheap grip and fit it to you. Might look like bubba’s been at it, but it’ll work. Heck, my mate’s compound bow has a grip that looks like utter dogwank, but it fits him just as good as the day he made it 20 odd years ago. Solution for my bow is gonna be much the same. Get a bit of wood and cut, file and sand till it’s good. Custom is the way to go if you want something that’s the best in the world for you.

          There were a massive number of grips.

          Then there weren’t.

          Then there were again, but they were all basically copies of the MIAD and felt pretty similar.

          Then that contracted a bit and swapped one MIAD feeling clone for another.

          Now we are getting a wave of new designs and hopefully there will be more variety than the last big glut. It’s a $20 accessory that probably cots $2.50 to make and another $2.50 to market, and can make a actual difference in the ergonomics of the rifle for someone if they aren’t all basically the same. This strikes me in general as a good thing.

        Trust me, 9mm mouthwash isn’t because of the crappy grip on my rifle…

        It’s more due to crappy ammo prices.

      I sense a Great Disturbance in the Sarcasm… as if a million faces were Palmed in one moment,,,,

    • Wetcoaster

      It’s hi-tech because it has hexagons!

      Bleh, from the photos above, they don’t even match on both sides of the grip.

    • Widgt

      Barbie needs a new pair of shoes!…and a new dress and a new pink plastic corvette. What’s the problem with having choices?

      • JT303

        Nothing, but the market is inundated with grips that cushion recoil, grips that store vibrator batteries and grips that are actually pineapples that some of us wish there was a little bit more innovation than ‘it’s got a pretty pattern’. Nothing wrong with choice, but when it’s all much of a muchness, one begins to wish for something more.

        • DanGoodShot

          Amen!

        • iksnilol

          To be fair, a grip that’s actually a pineapple would be innovative like all get.

    • AK™

      Kinda like another 1911…because we totally don’t have enough of those being made…

      • DanGoodShot

        Kinda? Exactly.

  • DanGoodShot

    People buy this just because of the hexagon pattern?. Sh@t, I’m going to put out a grip with this (.)(.) pattern on it. See how that sells! Oh yeah, need all the “grip hype” on the packaging like; “soaks up water like a sponge. Slipperier than a frozen wet hot dog in a pool full of Jell-O. Completely disintegrates at the sight of Hoppies no.9 and Ergonomically guaranteed to cause arthritis!” I’ll call it “The Boob grip” Go ahead and grab one!

    • billyoblivion

      Someone needs to make a grip that looks like a dangling penis.

      Guys are used to grabbing that.

      • iksnilol

        And promiscious women.

        • billyoblivion

          You *do* know my ex-girlfriends.

      • DanGoodShot

        I bet all the reviews would gush about the great ergonomics of it too.

        • billyoblivion

          Only if it was shaped like mine.

          Anything else would just feel too big.

    • iksnilol

      Maan… you had to remind me of how much I miss boobs.

      Also, totes would buy a boob grip, and boob cheek rest… and handguard.

      • DanGoodShot

        Yeah… damn, I forgot it’s been a while fer me too.. THANKS for being such a downer. Jerk

        A boob bag rest n I’d b all set!

        • iksnilol

          Me, the downer? T’was you that brought it up.

          😛

          • DanGoodShot

            Yeah well… .. still jerk 😛

          • iksnilol

            I done reckon we both are doing a lot of that, aren’t we?

          • DanGoodShot

            Well partner, ya hear no argument there….. but me bein’ one of those opteemistical folk, I do see an up. Aint no bickerin’. Its always ready to go. It don’t talk back, hell it don’t talk at all! It aint gunna drain yer wallet nor do ya have ta worry bout the 18 year fee ya might end up with! Best of all, no lip when ya buy more guns!

          • iksnilol

            I can respect that. Also, you might see an literal up.

  • Henry Reed

    I thought we’d all decided to boycott this company

    • DanGoodShot

      Come on man, that was yesterday!

    • Hoplopfheil

      I know I did…

    • UD

      I did/am. Not buying from them, already have several grips that suit me.

  • DGR

    We get news about a new $35 AR grip, but no news on the new Colt Cobra?

  • John Daniels

    I won’t buy this just because it’s from Hexmag. That’s all the reason I need.

  • James Young

    Hex hands…that’s the impression they leave on your hands after a mag
