Tyrant Designs CNC Mod Grip + ForeGrip Nickel Line

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR grips, has announced that their top selling line of AR-15 accesories, the AR-15 MOD Grip and MOD ForeGrip will soon (a few weeks to be exact) be available in a nickel finish! This has been rumored to be a limited release only, and will be available on Tyrant’s website as well as a few select distributors.

The MOD Series has made itself popular due to the ability to intermix different sized polymer straps to create a custom fit for each individual’s needs, all while maintaining the ergonomics of a plastic grip with the aesthetics of a wild aluminum grip.

“The amount of inquiries we have had over the past 6 months for a polished MOD Grip has been staggering. We always love listen to our customers and fans, but we did not want to come out with anything less than what we thought was perfect. Polishing was just out of the question due to the man hours involved to polish each grip, and even then it didn’t look great. After lots of trial and error we finally found the perfect combination of media blasting and electroless nickel finish. The process itself is still time consuming and more expensive than our current line of colors, but given the amount of time it has taken for us to get this down perfect we feel we owe it to our customers to release the Nickel Line at the same price point.”

Tyrant Designs CNC is an AR accessories manufacturer based just outside of Chicago. They have had several successful designs for AR pistol grips and are releasing their line of vertical grips and handstops next month.

Armed Society = Polite Society

Despite the gun laws in place, cities such as Chicago are still struggling to curb their violent crime epidemic. ‘Black Guns Matter’ Founder Maj Toure has proposed a unique alternative to the conventional reaction of calling for even stricter gun laws. Toure suggests providing more access to guns along with proper training.

“More so than just giving young urban people, of all races, firearms, giving them education about second amendment rights, giving them more education about conflict resolution and de-escalation tactics ‘cause that’s completely missing in urban areas like the city of Chicago,” Toure told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.

Toure cited New Hampshire, where a license is no longer required to carry a concealed, loaded gun, as an example.

Interesting Perspective

“Contrary to the assumption of House Bill 1582, weapons familiarization training as a component of an individual’s military basic training does not qualify that individual to carry weapons in follow-on service.”
