Hexmag AR15 Grip

Hexmag Grip

Shoot outside of an air-conditioned range – especially here in Florida – and you’ll quickly discover the need for one of two things: gloves or texturing on every gun contact point. Maybe both! Sweaty hands and smooth polymer don’t play well together, which explains the popularity of textured magazines like the Hexmag.

Well if you’re a fan of Hexmag textured mags, you’ll love their new AR15 pistol grip. Textured with their signature hexagonal pattern, the Advanced Tactical Grip provides a positive feel when the going gets slippery.

Better still, they partnered with the folks at X-Tech Tactical and incorporated an adjustable receiver mount. Thanks to X-Tech’s patented design, you can customize the angle of the grip with three settings: 17, 25 and 33 degrees. This is something that a few other manufacturers are starting to do, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see adjustable grip angles as the “next big thing” at the SHOT Show.

For additional grip, Hexmag advises the texture on the grip is the same size as that on their magazines, meaning that the tape the company sells will fit the pistol grip also.

At just $27.99, the Advanced Tactical Grip from Hexmag is affordable, especially if you want to try out different grip angles. The company also announced the addition of gray to the magazine color choices.

    I bet Glock would get more customers if they could figure out an adjustable grip angle.

    This seems like an interesting concept. I'm pretty happy with my MOE K grip, but I may consider this on future builds.

      @Joshua I thought of those hurdles as well and decided it would not be cost effective to even try. Considering all the different options of guns to buy, it's not really worth it. But it would be interesting.

    I think it's ugly, but it seems practical. I have a few 23 degree grips and love them.
