Wilcox Vertical Weapon Grips Feature Pivot Design and Integral Bipod

Newington, NH, June 25, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Wilcox Industries is introducing two new models of vertical foregrips made of rugged lightweight aluminum. Both new grips, the Para Grip™ and Steady Grip™, are available with the option of either a bipod or a battery storage compartment.

The Para Grip is a collapsible grip that stows beneath the weapon’s rail during transport, storage or in close confines operations, while the Steady Grip remains fixed below the rail. Both grips mount to any MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail using a thumbscrew mount. Flats located on the left and rights sides of the grips allow for the use of remote pressure pads for controlling tactical lights and lasers.

The spring-loaded retractable bipod is easily deployed by depressing a button located on the back of the grip and easily collapses back to a stowed position. A waffle-pattern grip prevents hands from slipping while firing the weapon even in cold, muddy or wet conditions. Made of aerospace-grade metals, Wilcox’s new Vertical Grips are lightweight, weighing between .44 ounces and 50 ounces. Ordering and pricing information is available by contacting Wilcox direct at 603-431-1331.
