Palmetto State Armory Pink M4

Rate This Article

For the sake of discussion lets say that some kind of SHTF event has happened; some kind of new flu has developed, financial collapse, nuclear war,,, something has happened to send the world to hell in a handbag.  It is now up to you and your family to protect your property, livestock, garden,, and other resources.

Building my wife (her name is Kristy) an AR-15 that appeals to her is part of my prepping in depth rather then breadth SHTF survival plan.  Instead of trying to get my wife to shoot a rifle that does not appeal to her, I decided to build a Palmetto State Armory M4, then deck it out in pink Magpul MOE and Suregrip parts.Pink M4 carbine

In the current state of panic buying anything AR-15 is almost impossible to find.  In most cases, if a website or store gets something in stock, it is sold out in a matter of minutes.  What is sad is a lot of companies resort to price gouging when panic buying kicks in.

I have to say a couple of things about Palmetto State Armory, they are getting stuff in on a regular basis, and they are not price gouging.

Ergo Grip 4045 BK Review

Rate This Article

Looking for a quick and easy way to improve the handling of your AR-15?  Look no further then the Ergo Grip. In this article we are reviewing the Ergo Grip 4045 BK.

Some details from the Ergo Grip website:

• The ergonomically enhanced ERGO Tactical Deluxe Grip® fits AR/M4 rifles

• Same grip features as our original ERGO Grips, but in a wider, heavier textured design

• Ambidextrous palm swell provides shooters with proper trigger finger placement

• An A2 sized inner cavity that is capable of storing many kit systems available on the retail market

• Ambidextrous

Installation of pretty straight forward.  On my AR-15 the pistol grip was held in place by a flathead bolt. I got a flathead screw driver out of the tool box, removed the original pistol grip, then installed the Ergo Grip 4045 BK.

My Ergo Grip 4045 BK did not come with a new bolt, but the package did include replacement washers. This is in contrast to the Ergo Grip 4139-BK I installed on my AK-47, which included a replacement bolt.

Overall, the Ergo Grip 4045 BK handled well through the shooting test. The oversized grip did not seem to be to large my average sized hands, or my daughters hands.

With heavy gloves on, the grip handled better then the factory AR-15 grip.

One of the things that I really like about the Ergo Grip, its made in the USA. With the economy the way it is, we need all the jobs we can get. By buying an Ergo Grip, you are getting a quality product at a great price, and you are supporting jobs here in the USA.

Ask yourself, would you rather pay higher taxes to support people on welfare, or would you rather buy stuff made in the USA? Think about that when you are thinking about buying gear for your AR-15.

* Full Disclosure – I received the Ergo Grip 4045 BK at no cost to myself. Even though I received the Ergo Grip 4045 BK at no cost, I did my best not to let that influence my opinion.  My honest opinion of the grip, is that you are getting a quality product and at an honest price.

AK-47 ERGO Grip SUREGRIP Review

Rate This Article

AK-47 ERGO Grip SUREGRIPIf there is one thing about the AK-47 that sucks, it has to be the factory pistol grip.  The AK-47 is a great rifle, but lets face the facts, most of the factory pistol grips suck, big time.

Thank goodness Falcon Industries has come to the rescue with the Ergo Grip Suregrip.

The Ergo Grip Suregrip is a quick and easy replacement to the factory AK-47 grip. The model I had the opportunity to review was the ERGO AK Classic Grip, model number 4139-BK.

Some specs from the Ergo Grip website:

  • Ambidextrous design with smooth finger grooves
  • Superior design and textured finishes for enhanced weapon control compared to smaller factory grips
  • Bottom storage compartment with tethered rubber plug
  • Installs with 6mm bots (included)

Installation

Installing the Suregrip was straight forward, remove the old grip, install the new grip.

The only issue I ran into, a standard allen wrench was not long enough to reach the bottom of the grip. This is not a big deal, my wife and I made a trip to the local hardware store to buy a allen socket.
