Phantom grip
 
How to install new grip frame... have 45 wanting more of a CCM 86 degree or the like ? Thats a good look.

It's not hard. You take off the grip panels using an allen wrench, then you have to take out the larger screw that holds the grip frame in place. It takes a while because you can only turn it a little at a time.

I haven't tried the CCM frame, but I did swap my M-16 grip with a .45 frame made by Benchmark. It's shaped a little different than CCI's frame, and I find it to be a lot more comfortable.

Almost any grip made for the AR-15 will work on the Phantom, but they won't have screw holes for a bottomline. I remember seeing a pic in the gallery where someone had put an all-rubber Hogue grip on theirs.

The CCM one is awesome! I have 3 now. Hard to find though so you may want to check out the J Curt 90* one. I haven't tried it but many players like it.

speak of the devil..i have a jcurt frame to get rid of if someones interested..

side note, the ccm frames aren't made anymore. they may do a run at some point, but i believe for now its on the bottom of the list at least.

rTR has a grip frame, not sure how it feels compared to the stock 45 though

Art guy: what was good and bad about the Jcurt in your opinion. :)

the jcurt frame is very well made, and is fairly comfy. only downside to it i suppose is that the grip panels are only available through jeremy.

its all down to preference really. i just prefer my 86 frame is all. just like some people prefer a humpback, 45, or m16 grip.

Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems to me like the 86grip for phantom isn't 86 degree angle at all. Is it called 86grip mainly because it takes the same panels as a "real" 86frame or is it really an 86 degree angle?

artguy63 05-08-2012 09:31 AM

i believe the actual angle is in between the 86 and the 45

86 degrees is nearly 90 degrees that would mean it would point slitgtly forward.

You're correct Ghostpilot, the 86* grip is no where near enough to vertical to be 86 degrees. As has been suggested, CCM just called the phantom 86 degree grips that because of their similarity in appearance to the sniper 86* frame.

The jcurt 90* is another very well made grip. It has finger grooves, which I normally can't stand, but the grooves on this frame are ok for me. The only problem some people with bear paw hands may face is the narrowness of the jcurt: it is even narrower than the already slim 86* grip and it is narrower than the trigger assembly itself.

90 degrees(jcurt)>86 degrees>86* phantom grip>.45 grip
