ERGO Grips | SHOT 2017

    This year at SHOT ERGO Grips showcased their new, even shorter, Superlite Modular M-LOK Rail, coming in at 9 inches. It has the exact same other dimensions: 1.5″ outside diameter/ 1.35″ inside diameter. Like the others is manufactured of 6061 T6 with a Type 3 Class 2 Black hard coat finish.

    The M-LOK slots are at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock and has a full length picatinny rail along the top. And because it is shorter, it is also lighter, weighing in at a scant 7.8 ounces. It includes all necessary mounting hardware for just under $200.

    Available in Black and FDE

    The other new offering is their butt stock that is a replacement for an original on a mil-spec tube. It is made of glass filled nylon and has a checkered butt for a non-slip grip. The top side has a smooth curve for a comfortable check weld, and has a number of holes that, later this year, will accommodate a snap in check rest to allow for an adjustable comb. They will also have holes to attach a butt pad. MSRP at $50.
