If you are running a pistol caliber AR carbine, or carry a Glock handgun to back up your rifle, TriTech Tactical hasÂ a pair of new grips that may interest you. These grips store a Glock magazine in them.
Designed as a replacement for the standard A2-type grip found on most AR pattern rifles, the TriTech Tactical design mimics the interior dimensions of a Glock pistol so that it can carry a spare magazine. Taken at face value, that seems like a good use of space – especially if you are running a pistol caliber carbine that feeds from Glock magazines.
The size and shape of the grips may be off-putting to some. However, since many people seem to like the grip size of a Glock pistol, I imagine that a lot of shooters might like the feel of these in the hand.
One grip, the TPG-ARGL910, is the shorter of the two options. It is designed to hold a subcompact magazine such as those used in the G26 and G27 pistols. The larger of the two products, the TPG-ARGL915, is designed for both the compact and full size Glock models. This should include sizes like the G17, G19, G22 and G23.
Right now, the company is showing these products as being available in mid-January. That is the same time frame as the SHOT Show where the company will be displaying its products. I will try to get by the company’s booth and get a look at these. Be sure to follow my 2017 SHOT Show news page that I will update each day of the event for you guys.
While the full size grip looks disproportionately large on an AR, I’m keeping an open mind on this. These could wind up being more practical than a first glance might suggest. The MSRP is set at $39.95. These are made in the United States.

interesting way to store the magazine for a 9mm AR gun, or a spare, if nothing else. Probably wouldn’t be interested in it unless it was for a 9mm ar tho
Yeah, I think it makes the most sense for folks running a 9mm AR. Thanks for reading!
I ordered one for an AR-40 I’m planning out. No idea if/when they’ll ship though, I haven’t heard anything yet
Thanks for the information. If you don’t mind, could you drop a comment after you receive it? I’d really like to know how you like it.
I don’t want to tear them apart or anything but I’m kind of underwhelmed. I got the larger of the two and the inside is so smooth and sized only just right which is a bad combination that causes a very tight vacuum-like seal on the magazine so my standard Glock 23 mag got stuck really good, I almost thought I had lost the mag forever but eventually I was able to get some leverage and get the mag free(used my teeth like an idiot), the mags will absolutely not drop free. Very hard to feel where the mag catch is because it’s flush with the rest of the grip and there’s no difference in texture or anything. It’s not terribly comfortable either when held by itself because of the large blocky shape that’s inherently necessary to be able to store Glock mags inside but maybe when it’s actually mounted on something, the fit might come together better, tough to say for sure. If you’re using longer mags like the 33-rd 9mm mag or the 22-rd .40 mag it’s much easier to pull the magazine out of the bottom because you can actually grip the mag that way. This could be an awesome product for any Glock-mag pistol caliber AR but it needs some polish first. The main things it needs are something to differentiate the mag catch from the body and maybe giving the inside a slightly more rough texture so it’s not vacuum death-gripping the mags.
Thanks for sharing your experiences with it. I hope the company takes your thoughts into account and is able to make some tweaks.
I got mine today and installed it on an AR 9. Diamondback DBR9. Works really well. Mags snap in without issue, and slides out when mag release is pressed. Installed nice and tight. No issues on install. I wish I could post a picture for you.
