Hot on the heels of the release of Siegen M-LOK rail covers with cable management feature, Strike Industries has introduced two new angled M-LOK forward grips that also allow organizing the cables of light/laser pressure switches. The two grips share the same cable management solutions and differ in size, geometry and additional features. Let’s take a closer look.
At the very top of these grips, on either side of the M-LOK nuts, there are cable channels designed to hold the pressure switch wires keeping them tight against the handguard. There are also semicircular cuts on the sides of cable channels that provide an exit point for the cable to allow mounting the pressure switch on the grip itself. Last but not least, the slots cut in the middle of cable channels allow storing the excess wires inside these grips.
The new Strike Industries angled forward grips are made of a durable and lightweight polymer. They feature a stippling-like texture on the sides and horizontal serrations on the front and backstraps. The long grip has an overall height of 3.55″ and the geometry of its base is designed to allow stabilizing the weapon on various barricades. The short grip has a slanted base and with an overall height of 2.3″, it is a fairly low profile option. The angle of both grips is 86°. This slight angle will also let you have different configurations with the grips angled forward or backwards depending on the orientation they are mounted on the rail.
The Strike Industries angled M-LOK grips with cable management feature are listed on the company’s website at an MSRP of $17.95 and $19.95 for the short and long versions respectively. These grips are currently available in black color option only. The package includes a Torx key and blue Loctite necessary for installation.
