Too many choices I think, I was looking for a pachmeyer type of feel but it also has to have the compartment on the bottom. My python has a nice feel to it and was hoping to replicate it.

MIAD for a more traditional (but not quite as extreme) grip angle, BCM Mod 1 for a more upright grip.

That is a great link! Thanks for sharing

For me, I have the MOE and like it (then again, I haven't tried anything else).

I've tried quite a few pistol grips, and it's going to be different for every person, but I love the Magpul MIAD with the "L" backstrap. Having that much more surface area makes it much easier to handle the carbine with only one hand, especially once weighted down with rails and the front heavy accessories the induce. I do not have huge hands, I where a large golf glove but a thin dude at 5'10, 150lbs-ish.

I've also owned/own and tried the MIAD in all other configurations, the MOE+ which I like almost as much, ErgoGrip, Houge and A2, all of which were too small.

I like it. Excellent grip angle. Super light weight. No storage rattle BS.

I've been running an MOE for a good while and love it. Will probably go with that same grip again for the two builds I am working on right now.

BCM Gunfighter Mod. 1 - it takes the strain off your wrist (steeper grip angle), comfortable, and a decent water-resistant storage door.
+1 but I bought the MOD 0

Same for me. It's just comfortable.

I see no need for storage in it or any other grip. If you do though...

+1 on the MIAD with the large back-strap.

I tried the Ergo and while I preferred the feel/texture of it compared to the A2, it just felt too small (if I had opted for the palm-swell version, it may have worked for me). But IMO, the largest setup of the MIAD just feels "right", especially concerning what Disregarded9-side stated about one-handed control of the rifle.

Of course, it all boils down to personal preference which can only be determined by actually trying out different options for yourself.

ETA- I forgot add, my only real complaint I have with the MIAD/MOE is that you can't choose which storage insert comes standard (I think it's a 3 round insert that comes with it, which seems like a silly/least desired option to me), meaning if you want one of the different battery or spare bolt/firing pin cores, you have to spend more cash to get your preferred setup.

Safety?

Overall that is very similar to mine. I just have a different rail and light, and my pmags with ranger plates are 30 rounds. (ranger plates not pictured)

Well, I guess I should've added a pic of my MIAD equipped AR, so here it is-

+1 on the MOE and MIAD. I use the MOE and I haven't had a single problem with it. Fits my hand perfect, even with a pair of gloves on.

when I first put the Magpul MOE grip on, I loved it.

Well, I was missing out. I recently got a MIAD in and put in the front panel with the bump and the medium back panel. It was awesome.

But I was wrong. Last night, I put the large grip on and that is what I will be switching all my rifles over to. It just felt perfect to me.

But everyone's hand is different. Get what definitely fits you best. You're the one that's going to be shooting it.
