Tyrant Designs MOD and Titan CNC Aluminum AR Grips

    Tyrant Designs CNC has been in the machining business for over 30 years. In that time they have machined products for the defense industry as well as Aerospace and the medical field.Tyrant now has an R&D team dedicated strictly to design new and innovative accessory gun parts. Currently Tyrant is making a series of grips for the AR platform made from aerospace grade aluminum. Several finishes are available from an anodized black finish, red, blue and natural aluminum.


    Tyrant was good enough to send me two of their grips the MOD which has interchangeable front and back straps and the Titan series. I put the MOD grip on my Ruger Precision Rifle and the Titan on my AR pistol. Installation was simple and the same as any other grip. All of the needed hardware is included. The grips are very lightweight in fact surprisingly so at 4 oz for the MOD. While the MOD has the choice of the chevron pattern and smooth interchangeable straps the Titan has a knurled grip with a diamond patter machined into the back. These grips come in a regular size and a large. I normally wear an XL glove so the large fit me the best. The MOD grip is a bit more hand filling than the Titan and I like the ability to change the front and back straps. It’s just a matter of preference. Both designs feel good in the hand. The MSRP for the MOD is $115.95 with the Titan at $99.95. Extra back straps run $14.95. The grips are well made with no rough edges and all the corners have been smoothed.

    The MOD Grip is truly the first of its kind. A drop in grip replacement for the AR platform, it has been extensively tested and designed by Tyrant Designs CNC. It is a very lightweight and modular (hence the name) Aluminum and Polymer Composite AR-15 grip. The Body of the grip is made from aerospace grade 7075 Aluminum, then finished in a grey anodize. The front and back straps of the grip are made from a polymer composite, are fully removable, and are offered in different sizes as well as designs. We will continue to come out with new strap options as well as strap designs, making this one of the most modular AR-10/15 grips available. With this design the operator will not have to compromise form vs. function. We have specifically designed this grip to feel just as comfortable as any other polymer grip, but with the American craftsmanship every rifle deserves. Please join us in celebrating the MOD Grip and the end of crappy plastic grips!
