Ultimately, the choice of which grip to use comes down to your preference. In the end, it's just a grip and it either works or it doesn't. In this case, the Magpul K Grip does what it was designed to do, and it does it at a great price. The AR-15 comes in all different sizes and is customized more than any other firearm. As a result, the same grip angle will not be comfortable on every AR. That's where the MOE-K Grip from Magpul comes in.
The Magpul MOE K Grip is a superb choice for a minimalist style build. It is one of the lightest grips available and it brings the Magpul strength that shooters demand. This Magpul MOE K Grip is the Spartan brother of the popular Magpul MOE grip. The Magpul MOE-K Grip's comparatively steep grip angle is designed to improve weapon control and user comfort on weapons with short lengths of pull such as short-barreled rifles (SBR), AR pistols, and personal defense weapon configurations. Its aggressive grip angle brings your primary hand closer to your body. This attitude serves to improve weapon control and retention. Both of these elements are critical if you run in the three-gun world or are involved in Close Quarter Battle. It also offers a slim circumference for users with small hands or those who simply prefer a smaller grip. The beavertail has also been omitted to reduce weight and bulk. The grip is made from impact-resistant polymer to stand up to the most uncompromising environments.
If you're not wild about the rubbery type or the slick, hard plastic A-2 style grip, the K Grip is a viable alternative. The Magpul K Grip wears the aggressive Trapezoidal Surface Projections (TSP) that Magpul is known for. Additionally, Magpul adds horizontal ridges on the front and rear surfaces of its grip. All in all, it is very comfortable for a polymer grip. Long story short, you will be able to hang on to this sucker.
Even if you like to keep your gun all classic black, color match can be an issue. If you run Magpul furniture on the rest of your gun you need a Magpul K Grip.
