Tyrant Designs CNC Announces the new Mini Vert Grip

The following is a Press Release from Tyrant Designs CNC:

Tyrant CNC

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR grips has just announced their release of the new HALO Series MiniVert, a vertical forward grip. With dimensions slightly smaller than the average AR-15 vert grip, the MiniVert sports an aggressive looking knurl and well thought out ergonomics. Coupled with the ability to fit directly to MLOK and Keymod rail systems this little grip packs a big punch. With an overall length just shy of 3 inches, Tyrant instead utilized an elongated lip at the bottom allowing the operator the option of either tucking their pinky behind or resting the finger the traditional way.

HALO MINIVERT GRIP 13

“With all of the positive feedback we have received from reviewers, dealers and social media, we are extremely excited to announce the official release of our HALO Series MiniVert! This concept took months of designing and field testing to make it as comfortable as possible while maintaining our well known aggressive styling. It truly is a vertical grip that can be used in all situations on various platforms to heighten the performance of the operator. We are pleased with how it came out and look forward to seeing it on AR’s everywhere. ”

FN Launches the FN 509 Striker-Fired 9mm Handgun

The following is a Press Release from FN:

FN-Logo

(McLean, VA – April 17, 2017) FN America, LLC is excited to announce the launch of the FN 509™, an all-new 9mm striker-fired pistol. The FN 509 was born out of the company’s effort to produce a contender for the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS) competition and has been further enhanced to meet the needs of U.S. law enforcement and commercial customers.

“When the requirements for MHS were released, our team of engineers immediately went to work, taking the successful elements of the FNS Compact and further developing those to meet the needs of the U.S. Army’s solicitation for a new, full-size pistol,” said Mark Cherpes, President and CEO of FN America, LLC. “Between the submission of MHS and the commercial release of the FN509, we have worked with law enforcement agencies throughout the U.S. and captured on-site feedback that we used to further optimize the pistol to far exceed the expectations of our valued customers.”

Built on the proven architecture of the FNS™ Compact, FN made changes internally and externally to meet the rigorous performance standards of the MHS requirements and further developed the platform into the FN 509™ with help from industry experts. Over the course of development, the platform has been tested extensively for reliability, ammunition compatibility and durability – totaling more than 1 million rounds.

Aesthetic changes to the platform include the aggressive cocking serrations, enhanced grip textures, guarded controls and recessed target crown on the barrel. Critical internal components were completely redesigned to ensure maximum performance to meet FN’s demanding standards. The FN 509 is currently shipping to FN distributors in two commercial SKUs, available at retail in early May, and two law enforcement SKUs, available in early June. Other options like manual safety models will be made available at a future date. For product specifications, please see Figure 1.

To see the new FN 509 in person, visit the FN Booth (#2429) at the 2017 NRA Annual Meetings, held April 28 – 30, 2017, in Atlanta, Georgia. To read more on the design and development of the FN 509 or to find a dealer near you, please visit fnamerica.com.

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.

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.

Tyrant CNC Mini Vert Grip 1

“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. ”

With a specially designed mounting system, it is compatible with both M-LOK and Keymod rails. Meaning with just a quick change in hardware (that is supplied with the grip when purchased) it can be mounted on either type of rail system. We believe that this is the type of versatility that operators need in order to furnish multiple weapons. The polymer strap helps the operator instantly feel comfortable with the foregrip and give them the confidence
