Review: Mascon Accuracy Grip For The AR-15

    Back in May we posted about the new Accuracy Grip from Mascon that is being distributed by our friends over at Strike Industries who were kind enough to send us one for review. The Accuracy Grip is designed to offer shooters an adjustable finger pad to help locate the pad of the finger in the perfect position.

    The base grip looks a lot like a standard A2 with what looks like some extra seams from the mold, but in reality the side panels are removable do that you can replace them with one of the 10 panels that allow you to locate the pad of your finger in the optimal place.

    To remove the panel the small door in the bottom of the grip needs to be opened so that you can slide the panel to the bottom of the grip. Changing the panels out is a very easy process and trying out every option that the Accuracy Grip has to offer is easy enough to do at the range without tools.  IMG_2758

    The panels with the bump make the grip look like it has sprouted some sort of purposeful tumor. IMG_2760

    Mascon ships the grip with a total of 10 panels ranging in size from no bump at all to extra extra large.  IMG_2767

    Once I got out to the range I spent some time getting my super cheap scope dialed in at 50 yards using the A2 grip that normally resides on the rifle. Once I was happy with the zero I shot a 3 round baseline group to see if the Accuracy Grip really does improve a shooter’s ability. IMG_2773

    Next up was the large grip that I found fit my fingers the best. The next 3 round string felt rather nice, I did notice I had a bit more control over the trigger. After I shot this group I changed the grip out yet again for similar product I have in for review to repeat the same test. IMG_2780

    I was pretty pleased with the group that I shot with the Accuracy Grip, I had a uncharacteristically great range day in spite of the stifling humidity. IMG_2791

    The A2 grip that i used as a baseline was not near as pretty. I am reasonably sure that I pulled that oops shot as a result of having too much finger on the trigger. I could be wrong there, I am not a precision shooter in the slightest. IMG_2793

    So what do I think about the Accuracy Grip? I really like the concept a lot, there are some areas that I would like to see some improvement to though. The A2 style spur on the leading edge of the grip needs to go, there is no good reason that it is there. I also would like to see the grip offered with some P30 style palm swells to allow a shooter to adjust the grip to best fit their hand and not just the finger.

    The Accuracy Grip has a MSRP of $ 39.99 and is being distributed by our friends over at Strike Industries. You can read more about the product on their website by clicking HERE.
