Hey everyone!

I recently took apart my pistol grip for about the 8th time and had trouble screwing the plate back on. I took a good look, and realized that I stripped the hole that you put the screw in! Now I have to spend some extra cash on getting another.

Do any of you have any reccommendations on on a new pistol grip? I would like one with metal lining in the holes made for screws. Also, I don't want to spend more than $30 on a grip, meaning the MIAD grip is out.

I was thinking of this one on Evike-

Does anyone imput on it?

Here is a picture if it helps, I apologize for the quality. Note how the front screw hole is stripped.[attachment=78:Grip.jpg]


For KWA- I reccommend re-enforcing the grip for the 2009 version.


Thanks for your help! :)

I have the STAR G27 style pistol grip for my TM M4. Click me FTW!!!


It's an ambidextrous  design (important to lefties like me) and has to be the most comfortable grip I have ever used on an AEG. I've even considered buying a second one for my KM16 but will wait till I destroy another pistol grip. Yeah, I stripped my origional as well.

Cool! Does the part that goes over the back of the reciever fit tight? I wouldn't want that to flop around. Also, do you know what it is made out of?

@ Allizard
Nice! KWA is ahead of the game! Is the grip for the current version of KM-4 re-enforced?

I've never had a problem with it being loose. The screws were put in with lock-tight and it has not moved an inch since it's last tune up (back in September) But it was a perfect fit.

I'm not sure what it's made of, maybe heavy duty plastic or composite polymer. It has a rubberized spray on it's outer part. That will rub off eventually, but I don't even miss it.

Can't go wrong with the G&P SPR Grip, $5 over your budget though.  I have it and it is made of a very strong plastic and is super thick.

How about some cardboard on the bottom of the box for a bit more protection, you go all that way to make a nice gun then cut corners on the box  :blink:

Yeah it looks cool, but I play lots of CQB and an SPR grip probably wouldn't be the best for it :lol:

@urban_epidemic
Thanks! I will consider that one. Looks pretty cool, too.

If anyone else has any recommendations, I'll be ordering in about a week.

I've been looking at SPR grips, you should PM allizard and tell him to put it on the 3rd party compatibility list. They are out of my price range now, but maybe down the road.

@brooklyn468, havent seen you on xbl in a while :lol:

Yeah, I am on a lot! I am supprised I don't see you on too much. I am mostly on at night time.

So I have been taking a look at this grip, by King Arms. I like King Arms, they havn't failed me in the past.

This grip is supposed to be really comfy, and it fits in my price range. I don't mind a little modification. Do you know if my standard motor cover will fit?

Ya dont bother trying with the King Arms grip...it wont fit the kwa without modifications.I bought that grip and found out the hard way. So i put it on my CA m15, works great on that though. I bought the MOE Magpul grip for my kwa instead and works much better but make sure to use your stock motor plate or else you will have trouble with the motor alignment.

I don't really mind modification, what did it need?

And does the Magpul grip have metal lining by the screws?

Well the grip does not sit flush with bottom of the receiver. I dremmeled it until it did sit flush but the motor still wasnt aligned as well as i would have liked. There was a significant different motor sound between using the King Arms grip and the stock motor grip. I chose to use my stock grip until i got the magpul. The king arms grip is more for CAs in my opinion because the alignment was perfect for that. And yes the Magpul grip does have metal thread inserts for the screws but i used my stock motor plate and different screws for it and the alignment seems to be perfect. Hope that helps.

Awww the King Arms one looks the coolest!

Do both the Magpul grips have metal inserts or just the super expensive one?

I found the MIAD MOE grip on ASGI for $30 exactily. However, the top review threw me off. It said the screws can get stripped, and that is the one thing I don't want in my grip.

Here is the link-

I have the MOE and but the heads of the bolts are allen heads and the heads stripped out just from putting em in. I put new standard torx screws in mine and it works fine.

Are the holes that you put the screws in re-enforced with metal?

Yes they are, but the threads appear to be brass
