    Whats the largest grip out there? I have a Magpul MIAD on one rifle and I'm using the large back strap.

    I bought another MIAD for a 2nd rifle, and I got a dud grip- the hole for the selector spring was drilled too deep, so the selector did not stay in place.

    I'm returning the bad MIAD, and I'm open to suggestions on other grips for giant paws. If nothing else I'll just exchange for another MIAD.

    Thanks.

    i have largish hands and i like my miad with the biggest backstrap. i have always hated the a2 grip and felt the ergo grip was good in depth frontstrap to backstrap but was too thin.

    If you don't mind having tape on your gun, a 75 cent roll of electrical tape will give you the best grip, customized to your hand..I have big hands and it got to the point were I couldn't even hold my a2 grip without it hurting my fingers.. I use my ar for hunting and blasting cans, so it you have a tactical gun you may want to go with some rubber grip tape but as long as you don't use duct tape it will turn out okay lol, from a glance you can't even tell mine is taped, let me know if u wanna a pic of how i did it

    I wear XL gloves and have the Ergo grip on my AR. Fits my hand great. Never tried the MIAD.

    Same here, I didn't like the ERGO grip, the only other one I liked is the Hogue that my buddy has on his RRA...

    I have the hogue on mine and it is COMFY, not sure how it would fit you depending on how big ur hands are? im not a big guy but do have fairly large hands but they are skinny too so may not have the same grip u have? dunno but i def like my hogue, and it was cheap

    I wear an XL glove and they are usually on the small side. I found the Hogue grip extremely comfortable - it has a much larger circumference than the A2.

    What I really like about the ergo with the mall ninja name is that it's very grippy like an eraser. It's also ambidextrous.

    I have the Sierra Precision grip on both of my AR's as I have big hands too. One of my lowers has an ambidextrous selector switch so I had to remove a lot of material from the right side of the grip, and then hog out a groove with a Dremel to allow the switch to operate.

    Tango Down BG-17 is my favorite, very solid grip.

    I'll second that, with the MIAD being a close second. The BG-17 puts my finger in the perfect position for the trigger.
