How to choose a Grip Pod for your specific application



They look pretty similar, right? The main difference is the material used to make the bipod legs.

Law Enforcement = All Polymer Legs.
- Will hold up to 150 lbs in the bipod deployed position.
- Good for range shooting, hunting, and light law enforcement applications (40% of customers choose this model).

Military = Polymer Legs with Steel Reinforcing Rods Inside.
- Will hold up to 300 lbs in the bipod deployed position.
- Exceeds military drop test requirements.
- Good for military use and heavy duty applications (40% of customers choose this model).

SAW = Pressure Forged Aircraft Grade Aluminum Legs.
- Will hold over 300 lbs in the bipod deployed position.
- Exceeds military drop test requirements.
- Good for fully automatic machine guns and .50 cal sniper rifles (20% of customers choose this model).





Quick Detach = Faster attachment / removal, that can be removed in 1-2 seconds with your hand (60% of customers choose this type).

Thumbscrew Attach = More permanent attachment to the weapon, that can be removed in 3-5 seconds with your hand (40% of customer choose this type).

* There is no strength difference between the two attachment methods. Both are equally durable.





Standard Grip = The standard grip that comes on most Grip Pod models. (50% of customers choose this type).

V2 Grip = The new style grip that has a new texture. (50% of customer choose this type).

* Both grips work well. It's largely personal preference on which one you like.






Black = Available for Law Enforcement, Military, and SAW models (60% of customers choose black).

Tan = Available for Law Enforcement and Military models (20% of customers choose tan).

Tan & Black = Available for SAW models (10% of customers choose tan & black).

Olive Drab & Black = Available for Military and SAW models
(10% of customers choose olive drab & black).

* Most customers choose a color that matches the color of their rifle.

** The Tan color is lighter but similar to MAGPUL Dark Earth.

** The Olive Drab color is darker than MAGPUL Olive Drab.






The optional laser / light rails are for adding lasers or lights "directly to" your Grip Pod. Attaching a laser or light directly to the Grip Pod means easier access to the controls because your hand is already on the Grip Pod.

The rails come in single rail or dual rail (2 rails).

The rails will attach to any of the Grip Pod models.

The single rail places the rail on the right side of the Grip Pod.

The rail is on the opposite side of the push button and doesn't hamper push button operation in any way.





Grip Pod FAQ

How does the Grip Pod Operate?
The grip pod activates by a Push Button located high on the grip. In the "Closed" position, when you hit the Push Button, the legs instantly deploy for quick use. To go from the "Deployed" to "Closed" position, simply push the legs back up into the Grip Pod. Both operations take about 1 second to do!



I took a look at all the options and I'm still undecided!

- 40% of our customers get the Law Enforcement model
- 40% of our customers get the Military model.
- 20% of our customers get the SAW model.

Quick Detach versus Thumbscrew Attachment is largely personal preference. Choose whichever you think best fits your needs.

Standard Grip versus V2 Grip is largely personal preference. Choose whichever you think best fits your needs.

Color is also personal preference. Most customers choose a Grip Pod color to match their rifle.

Does Grip Pod sell a "Quick Detach Kit" to change Thumbscrew models to Quick Detach models?
Unfortunately Grip Pod does not make any "Quick Detach Kit" to retrofit Thumbscrew models.

I'm worried about buying a Fake Chinese grip pod, are you selling the Real Grip Pod?
Yes, we only sell Real Grip Pods. We are listed as a Distributor on the Grip Pod website.

Why should I spend more money on a Real Grip Pod when I can get a Fake Chinese Grip Pod for X amount?
The Fake Chinese grip pods are made with poor quality materials, engineering, and labor. Fake Chinese grip pods are NOT safe to use on a real firearm. Most of them break while you are FIRING the weapon (which could cause injury or death). You wouldn't put knockoff Chinese ammo in your gun, right? Don't make the same mistake with your weapon parts!

Real Grip Pods are made here in the USA. Buy American!

Why shouldn't I buy that grip from Manufacturer X that does basically the same thing?
Because they aren't nearly as durable or fool proof as the Grip Pod. On several of the Manufacturer X models, the legs are prone to getting dirt trapped inside and seizing up. Once those legs seize, you might as well throw it away. You can literally PACK a Grip Pod full of dirt, unscrew the cap, pull the legs off, and hose it down......and you're back to 100% good to go!

What model does the Military use?

Generally the military purchases the Military or SAW model.

What model do you use on YOUR guns?
We have the Military Grip Pods on our 5.56mm guns. We have the SAW Grip Pods on our heavier 7.62mm and higher rifles. The owner of the company has a Military model Grip Pod that he took on a US Army deployment to Iraq, dragged through the desert for a year, and still uses on his gun at home!
