DoubleStar Stronghold AR-15 Grips With G10 Panels

    DoubleStar Stronghold AR-15 Grips With G10 Panels

    DoubleStar has launched a new AR-15 pistol grip called Stronghold. What sets it apart from other grips is that the Stronghold has an aluminum core plate with G10 panels attached from either side – similar to what you often see in handguns. Let’s see what advantages can such a grip design provide.

    Here is how DoubleStar describes their new product:

    DoubleStar has taken pistol grips to the next level by combining durability and customization in one awesome package. Introducing the Stronghold Pistol Grip. This innovative design utilizes a lightweight, anodized aluminum frame and customizable textured G10 grip panels. The palm swell provides a secure but comfortable surface for the shooter’s hand even in gloves. The high-quality US made G10 panels round out the package with rugged style. Pair with the Stronghold MLOK G10 Panels to ensure you won’t drop your weapon when conditions are slippery.

    I think the ability to change the grip panels may become a handy feature if they release other grip panels with different shapes, dimensions, and textures. That could allow tailoring the grips to different applications (hunting, long-range shooting, competition, etc) thus making the lower receiver a bit more modular and adaptable for use with the myriad of upper receivers you probably have. Being able to change the color doesn’t seem to be a too useful feature unless you want to have properly colored grip for each season of the year. Lastly, this grip may be a desirable accessory for those of you who simply like the feel of G10.
