Product Description

Picatinny rail GripStop

Since its release in 2013, the Gripstop has gone through a series of improvements and design changes based off user feedback. True North Concepts has taken the opportunity to fine tune these changes for the re-release of our Picatinny rail mounted variant. Although the firearms industry has moved away from the 1913 Picatinny mounting interface, it still remains the standard throughout the U.S. Military and most allied nations. The majority of issued weapons are already bulky and heavy, and TNC set out to reduce the weight of the Gripstop while improving performance. The result is the lightest, strongest Picatinny variant ever built. This new Gripstop weights just 1.7 ounces, and is built from 6061 T6 aluminum for maximum durability. It is currently available in both Earth Brown and Black colored Milspec Type 3 hardcoat anodized finishes. All hardware is built from tool grade steel, and is black nitrided finished for maximum corrosion resistance. After years of feedback from the field the design now features a specialty flat-head, flush fit mounting screw, allowing any common screwdriver or multitool to be used for mounting and maintenance. The Picatinny rail GripStop carries the same lifetime “No questions asked” replacement warranty as the rest of the Gripstop family, and is built with military application at the forefront of its design.

  • Rugged 6061 Aluminum
  • Lightweight (1.7 ounces)
  • Milspec anodized BLACK
  • Corrosion resistant Black Nitride hardware
  • Flat-tip screw head for mounting with a common screwdriver or multitool, no more hunting for an Allen wrench at the Armory!
  • Works on all U.S. Issued firearms utilizing 1913 Picatinny rail.


  • Shades of FDE (Earth Brown) may vary due to the chemical process during the Type III Hardcoat.

Not inexpensive, but what great things are?

This isn't the cheapest hand stop out there, but it is the best so of course it's not inexpensive. It's metal which is nice and well made. Edges aren't sharp, they are polished so they are smooth. Again, it's a quality piece of kit. The jimping on the curve does a great job of keeping your fingers from slipping toward the barrel, but they are not sharp and therefor comfortable. Again, ... quality of manufacture. Also (and this shouldn't matter, but it does) this looks real nice on the weapon. It looks very "cool" in fact, which doesn't hurt either. You can buy cheaper hand stops, but not better ones. Love it!

Great Grip Stop

Well made, very comfortable, big enough but not too big.

Great solid angle grip

Superior product. I did not realize that this doesn’t merely cam over and clamp on the rail but requires you to slide it over the rail before clamping and torquing. An excessively robust little gripstop. So robust in fact that my beard is now nij certified level 3a armor, and my wife’s sister is now pregnant with my child merely from my now offensively charming smile. Milspec retail is always a pleasure to do business with as well, fair prices and ships quickly. No bullshit. Just good shit.
