Tyrant Designs CNC Mini-Vert Grip

The following is a Press Release from Tyrant Designs CNC:

Tyrant Designs CNC , an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR  grips is only a few weeks away from releasing their first ever AR vertical grip! So far they are only calling it the Mini Vert Grip. The dimensions are roughly 3” L x .8” W and is directly compatible with M-LOK and KeyMod. The 3” in length is almost an inch shorter than most vertical grips, Tyrant instead utilizing an elongated lip at the bottom, allowing the operator the option of either tucking their pinky behind, or resting the finger on top. It is said to weigh around 2 ounces, but no official number has been recorded. Tyrant Designs also mentioned that this will be their most affordable product to date, and the price point will be very competitive with other vertical grips.

“This is something that we have been slowly working on for some time now. There are some great vertical grips out there, and we did not want to release just a ‘me too’ product. The mini vert is lightweight and shorter than most vert grips. That translates into less hanging mass on the operators rifle while still giving them the added control a vertical grip offers. ”
