Wilcox Industries just introduced a couple of high-quality, ergonomic stubby vertical foregrips for tactical AR (AR-15) carbine/SBR’s (Short Barreled Rifles). One’s a standard fixed-type, the other is a folding para (paratrooper) model that flips up against the rail for streamlined transport and storage. Because of the Para Stubby Grip’s folding aspect that requires a hinged mechanism, it’s about .75″ inches longer and slightly heavier than the Steady Stubby vertical grip. Both grips are made of strong, lightweight aerospace-grade aluminum encased in a polymer sleeve for minimum weight and maximum strength.

The following is the Wilcox Industries press release on the new grips:

Compact Stubby Grips from Wilcox Industries

Newington, NH— Wilcox Industries. is introducing two new weapon mounted vertical grips that are designed with the same quality of their originally designed grips but only half the length. The new Stubby Grips are designed to fit comfortably in your hands while attached to any 1913/STANAG style weapon rail. The Stubby Grip comes in both a standard fixed vertical and folding para model design. Wilcox Stubby Grips are perfect for scenarios when compactness, ruggedness and streamlining of the weapon are a must.

The Para Stubby Grip features a hinged mechanism that allows it to fold up against the rail. This feature allows for streamlining of the weapon during dynamic operations and also eliminates the need to remove the grip for stowage. The Steady Stubby Grip is also available in a standard fixed vertical grip.

The grips feature a thumbscrew mounting system that allows for easy and sturdy mounting on any standard 1913-MIL-Spec Rail. Both versions of grips are made of lightweight and robust aerospace grade aluminum that is Type III anodized and features a molded polymer sleeve, which ensures a secure grip during severe operational and environmental conditions.

The Para Stubby is 4.0 inches long and weighs .410 lb. while the Steady Stubby is 3.25 inches long and .245 lbs. Please contact Wilcox Industries at www.wilcoxind.com or 603-4311331 for ordering and pricing information.
