MIAD with the big backstrap and slick front. I like the angle on the BCM but it's too small for my paws.

I'm running a Tango Down and like it a lot. It holds 2, CR123s (perfect as i run an EXPS Eotech) in compartments made for batteries, and is waterproof. It does feel a tad too small In my med. size hands though. Seriously thinking of replacing it with the new larger model, BG, IIRC. Ergo is okay too but the Tango IMO fits better.

That's what I went with. I am very happy with it.

I've run an A2 (hate the finger nub), MIAD, MOE, TD BG, and have an Ergo on there right now. The angle is wrong though. I'm interested in the Gunfighter.

I have a Strike Industries Patriot on the way. Gonna try that.

I am gonna try the Magpul MOE-K. Got one on its way from Primary Arms.

I have the Tango Down, regular MOE, and the Hogue..... just gonna rotate them and see what I prefer. My favorite right now is definitely the Tango Down that is currently on my BCM lighweight.....

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-
