Simple can be good...

   "A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away"

     ar-15 grips

  This is something we at Tyrant Designs CNC take seriously. Beauty through simplicity. With all the complicated AR-15 accessories coming out lately, it's pretty easy to get caught up in it all. Some are perfectly executed, while others seem to be a bit over the top. This one can carry extra batteries and 4 matches, this one glows in the dark, this one will walk your dog etc. (not really but you get the point).

 

            We like to do things a bit differently over here. Our AR-15 grips serve a purpose, are minimalistic in design, and frankly are nice to look at. We got tired of the same old polymer grip that dozens of companies make. They all seem to have only 1 degree of separation between them. That brings us to our newest creation, the Nexus Grip. Starting from a single block of aerospace grade aluminum, this AR-15 grip truly starts off as a blank canvas. You may not be able to tell by just looking at it, but there are 4 stages in the manufacturing process. When its all said and done, and just inside of an hour, comes out a beautiful, simple, yet elegant aluminum grip. On top of that, it barely weighs 4oz, which is lighter than a good amount of polymers. We could have cut away some more fat, saved a few grams, but honestly going too far would just jeopardize the structural integrity of the grip. We do believe we have accomplished a perfect balance of strength vs. weight ratio.

 

            So the next time you're in the market for an AR-15 grip, you might want to check out the Nexus grip. It won’t hold a flashlight for you, nor does it have a PLB (Personal Locating Beacon) in it. But it's high quality fit and finish will make you glad that you decided to move on from polymers.

 

Happy Shooting

Thanks James! Rommel the grip level is just as good as any other polymer. As far as cooling/heating it won’t get any colder or hotter than the rail or the rest of the aluminum material on the gun. Trust me, we did R&D on all aspects. The last thing we want is to manufacture something that sucks! You should try one out!

It looks great and I like that it’s lightweight. My only concerns are that I wonder how much grip will you have when your palms start to sweat or when it gets wet? Also would it burn/freeze your hand in extreme weather conditions? I can’t wait to see tje reviews on this.

It's no secret the AR-15 might be the most customizable rifle platform ever created. The majority of the questions we get from a potential new user is should, I buy a factory ready rifle and customize it or should I start from scratch and build it myself. I'll discuss the pros and cons...
