NEW 2020 AR Accessories at SHOT Show | THRiL AR mag, RTG Grip, CCS Competition Stock
Matt from THRiL showed off some of his company’s new AR furniture and magazines at Shot Show 2020 with ar15.com. Here we’ll do a quick breakdown of their current and future offerings.
The THRiL RTG Grip
The RTG or “Rugged Tactical Grip” sports an ergonomic, fluid, and aesthetically pleasing design. It carries exactly what it needs to as far as a replacement for the standard A2 pistol grip.
The grip is aggressively laser textured and formed as part of the polymer molding process during its manufacturing, giving it excellent feedback while promoting responsive weapon movements and improved agility. The texture was described as “almost skateboard grip tape” in feel.
The overall design of the pistol grip is simplistic and effective, and with a price point of $16.99, it compares well against other competitors. The pistol grip currently ships from their site in Black, Flat Dark Earth and Gray.
The THRiL PMX AR Magazine
Their 5.56 x 45mm 30rd AR magazine offering is constructed of a durable fiberglass nylon polymer, with an ergonomically designed spine and checkered texture for better grip upon insertion into the weapon. The mag also has finger grooves for better overall grip, and reverse texture to help with pouch extraction. This magazine really lines up the needs of shooters who compete and need as much edge as possible on their loading and reloading speed.
The rubber over molded floor plate on the bottom of the magazine helps with durability when mags are dropped and adds some extra grip as well. The PMX currently sells for $13.49 on their website, and ships in the same three colors as their pistol grip; Black, Flat Dark Earth and Gray.
The CCS Combat Competition Stock
With a very SOPMOD style design, the CCS Combat Competition Stock catches your eye immediately as a practical and aesthetically pleasing design. The cheek weld is pronounced and void of possible beard-hair traps, which are generally viewed as a design flaw on many other stocks that attempt to provide cheek weld.
Throughout the stock there are multiple choices for sling attachment points, including a QD swivel button mount, as well as three sling slots. This allows shooters multiple configurations and gives practical combat shooters the options they need to carry as well. The stock is adjustable, leaving availability to shooters to change length as needed.
Overall the stock provides all of the options that its competitors do while also maintaining a sleek design and leaving bulk out of the picture. The current MSRP on their website is $57.99 in the same three colors for the PMX and the RTG.
Some of the exciting new mag options that were revealed as well were the SM9 MPX 9mm magazine and the PMX 22LR 25rnd Magazine, both of which feature a similar design and thought process that went into the PMX AR magazine. The expected release date for the SM9 magazine on their website is March 31st, 2020, and the PMX 22 magazine is expected to be released sometime in the summer of 2020.
