VM 68 Pistol Grip Search

Hello Guys, I'm searching for any information on the style of grip shown in the attached link so I can hunt one down on the web. I currently have the standard "stowaway 2" grip by Lone Star Ordanance on my VM and would like to change this grip out. I did this same swap on an F1 Illustrator I had in the 90's and prefer the feel of the pictured grip. Thanks for the help.

Those came on some spyders as a stock feature. Shouldn't be too hard to find.

Actually the one pictured looks like a Phantolm M16 grip, which are very easy to find as CCI still sells them.

Thanks guys, I went to the CCI site and found they had it listed as a replacement part. I wish I could get some information off of one as it's probably made by another company and could get it cheaper from the manufacturer. I shouldn't be complaining as they have it listed for a reasonable price. Now let’s hope they answer my email. Thanks again for the help.

Pink: You're right, I put them side by side, phantom is spot on, kingmans was close but no cigar.

I can order you one from CCI if you're interested, knock a couple of dollars off if you're really interested, just PM me and we can work something out.

It's all good, I just got an email from CCI and the grip will cost me just under ten bucks after shipping. I can't complain about that. Thanks for the offer though!

The one in the photo were made by Ramline, not Lonestar. As you could guess, they were made by Ramline as AR15 grip replacements, and ended up on tons of 90s-era paintguns.

Apart from those, Eurogrips were popular with Spyders and Mokals. Gator grips were also popular as an aftermarket item. 45-grips are also common. They always seem to be on clearance somewhere.

And because of the AR15, you can get all sorts of oddball grips that are not intended for paintball. Like those "revolver style" grips, or the PSG-1 grips. The options are endless.

Just be carefull. The VM has a flat bottom, so not all grips work as well as others. And bottomline adapters are not interchangable. Even the similar looking Lonestar and Ramline use different bottomlines.
