Knights Armament (KAC)
We work with military replica rifles, and often times use KAC, Colt and Daniel Defense parts. Sometimes, where it is less obvious, in small parts, some builders and customers like to save a few dollars here and there on parts where it really might not matter if you have the exact perfect part. Perhaps a grip is the right place? We also sell KAC grips, so we can help you if you want one of those. KAC can be expensive, and is often out of stock. We love KAC, and if you can afford it, you should buy genuine KAC, if it is in-stock. Is there any difference in quality or functionality between the two? There could be.
As to construction, this is a solid polymer grip. This is new to our line in 2020. It does not appear to be fiberglass reinforced. It is a quality part. Cosmetically, we have noticed a "nub" at the very front of the grip. We talked with the manufacuturer and they said it was where two grips fit during molding. We have filed it down a little. I think you will not notice it, but we do want to point it out. The fit is very tight. Honestly, tight is good. You might need to use a plastic mallet to get into place. We had no issues using Colt, LMT, FN and KAC lowers. You might have fit issues with more commercial lowers. We do not use commercial lowers, so we cannot compare. This is manufactured by a quality military contractor. Made in USA.
Note on colors: Pictures can be deceiving. Getting the white balance correct to give you a brown or taupe is very hard. Anything in the Taupe, FDE, DDC, Coyote Brown color family is a matter of the eyes of the beholder and the manufaturer. Charlie's sources several tan A2 grips. This one is the medium color of the three Is it "Coyote?" it is probably closer to a Magpul FDE and half the cost of a Knights Taupe. Same A2 fit. One that the KAC clone nerds like Charlie could or would probably never be able tell the difference, especially as Knight's "taupe" has changed over the years. Take a look at the pictures. This one is the medium color of the three we sell. It is the one in the middle picture.
