    Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group Rifle Grip

    Information on the new Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group Rifle and Operator Grips



    Rifle Grip

    Development started in 2007 with the idea to create a more vertical grip for the AR-15 platform, reducing wrist fatigue of the Operator while encouraging a more natural “elbows down” shooting posture. Magpul Design Group was consulted to exploit their knowledge, experience, and expertise of advanced polymers/plastics. Several prototypes were fielded and tested with the superior design chosen for production. Umbrella Corporation AR-15 Rifle Grips are made to the finest standards and carry an unconditional guarantee against material defect and manufacturing failure. Installation by a qualified Armorer is required.

    Specifications
    • Manufactured from premium DuPont Super Tough technology polymers
    • Smooth surface for Operator customization, texturing, or rubber grip sleeve
    • Advanced design, heat and impact resistant
    • Drop-in replacement for AR-15 platform rifle grip
    • Increased Vertical grip angle with extended tang for improved ergonomics and proper trigger index
    • Mil-Spec 51958 passivated Stainless Steel ¼-28 pan head #3 Phillips Screw
    • Available in Black, FDE, OD Green
    • All tooling, dies, screws, packaging, and material made in the USA

    I'd like a grip exactly like this, only textured, or checkered or what ever you'd call it. Not really willing to try to stipple one myself. Are the MOE and BCM comparable to this?
    Thanks ahead,

    Also...I have no prior knowledge of Umbrella. Please tell me that isn't supposed to be some reference or rip off from Resident Evil...even the logo is similar.

    Looks like just the ticket for my SBR. After shooting for a bit, my wrist gets pretty tweaked with the stock grip.

    Of course there isn't going to be a zombie apocalypse, it's not like the Umbrella Corp is real or anything... oh... wait...

    Anyways I just bit the bullet and ordered one to see if I like it better than my ergos. How's everyone else liking theirs so far?
    I actually really like their receivers too.

    Why don't they stipple these from the company or have some texture? Seems like it would be easier to to buy a grip with exisiting "grip"

    I think zero7one was asking about starting a small business I stippling these grips. He posted pics and a video of his handiwork and he does a pretty good job in my opinion.

    Edit: I just now realized he started the thread, hehe.
