Note: This Magpul K2 Grip will function properly with LR-308 / AR-10 style rifles but, depending on the make of the rifle, may or may not leave a gap between the 'beaver tail' and the receiver. This gap is purely aesthetic and will not affect function.
Magpul relies on feedback from the end users and designs their products with those users in mind, which is why their gear is favored by serious police and military operators. The MOE K2 Pistol Grip was inspired by the need for a different grip angle on weapons with a shortened length of pull (LOP).
The Magpul MOE K2 Grip is more vertical in alignment, making it a better fit for weapons with a short length of pull such as short-barreled rifles (SBR) or AR-15 pistol configurations. The Magpul K2 Grip is designed with a sharper vertical angle of attack. This positions your primary hand closer to your body, resulting in greater control and weapon retention. Your grip will be more stable than ever thanks to the raised texturing on all sides. The back edge of the Magpul MOE K2 Grip incorporates a full beavertail seamlessly flowing into your lower receiver. While aesthetically pleasing, this transition serves to lessen the punishment transferred to the web of your hand from recoil.
This improved posture makes it possible for the smooth, fast, natural flow of motion critical in up close self-defense or CQB situations. When you combine the angle of the Magpul Moe K2 Grip with the stance of the grips backstrap you have the perfect storm. The geometry of all the elements involved results in the better positioning of your trigger finger, this breeds good form, consistency, and accuracy.
Magpul raises the bar on AR-15 grips by including an internal storage compartment. This compartment can accommodate items such as cleaning patches, gun care chemicals in small containers, and even spare parts. The Magpul K2 Grip is a solid, tough, one-piece polymer beast of a grip. It can withstand the rigors of real-life operations with comfort. They designed the Magpul K2 Grip to be slightly larger than their ever-popular MOE grip. This grip will definitely fill your hand without draining your wallet. No doubt, the Magpul MOE K2 Grip is a world apart from your standard A2 style grip. Whereas the venerable A2 grip does give you something to hang onto, it leaves much to be desired. The length from its backstrap to the trigger is too short. This leaves most shooters with poor trigger form. Today you can change all that with Magpul.
