Tyrant Designs: New Colors for the MiniVert and a Teaser

“We are extremely happy with the launch of the MiniVert. For us it is an indicator that our design efforts and R&D are on the right path. We will continue in this direction and will be adding new products to the HALO Series very soon!  ”

Tyrant Designs HALO Series MiniVert ForeGrip – Now Available

Tyrant Designs has been teasing for months about their newest product but the time has come. The HALO Series MiniVert ForeGrip is now available to order.

The MiniVert ForeGrip has Tyrant Designs’ signature style which is to say it looks like it was designed by a sentient computer and machined by CNC robots to be used on plasma guns wielded by a futuristic race of cyborgs. In short, it looks great… but looks aren’t everything. Care has been taken with its slight angle and well placed texturing to ensure that it performs well too.

Here is what Tyrant Designs had to say in their press release:

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR grips has just announced their release of the new HALO Series MiniVert, a vertical forward grip. With dimensions slightly smaller than the average AR-15 vert grip, the MiniVert sports an aggressive looking knurl and well thought out ergonomics. Coupled with the ability to fit directly to MLOK and Keymod rail systems this little grip packs a big punch. With an overall length just shy of 3 inches, Tyrant instead utilized an elongated lip at the bottom allowing the operator the option of either tucking their pinky behind or resting the finger the traditional way.

“With all of the positive feedback we have received from reviewers, dealers and social media, we are extremely excited to announce the official release of our HALO Series MiniVert! This concept took months of designing and field testing to make it as comfortable as possible while maintaining our well known aggressive styling. It truly is a vertical grip that can be used in all situations on various platforms to heighten the performance of the operator. We are pleased with how it came out and look forward to seeing it on AR’s everywhere. ”

Tyrant Designs CNC Mini Vert Grip – Official Teaser

We gave you an unofficial sneak peek of Tyrant Designs CNC’s upcoming vertical grip in early February but now we have an official teaser with more details.

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR grips is only a few weeks away from releasing their first ever AR vertical grip! So far they are only calling it the Mini Vert Grip. The dimensions are roughly 3” L x .8” W and is directly compatible with M-LOK and KeyMod. The 3” in length is almost an inch shorter than most vertical grips, Tyrant instead utilizing an elongated lip at the bottom, allowing the operator the option of either tucking their pinky behind, or resting the finger on top. It is said to weigh around 2 ounces, but no official number has been recorded. Tyrant Designs also mentioned that this will be their most affordable product to date, and the price point will be very competitive with other vertical grips.

“This is something that we have been slowly working on for some time now. There are some great vertical grips out there, and we did not want to release just a ‘me too’ product. The mini vert is lightweight and shorter than most vert grips. That translates into less hanging mass on the operators rifle while still giving them the added control a vertical grip offers.”

Tyrant Designs CNC is an AR accessories manufacturer based just outside of Chicago. They have had several successful
designs for AR pistol grips and are releasing their line of vertical grips and handstops next month.

Sneak Peek: Tyrant Designs CNC Vertical Grip

Tyrant Designs CNC gave us a sneak peek at their upcoming vertical grip. The image below shows a 3D printed prototype and there may be changes to the production version. The new grip should look great in Tyrant’s signature style – radically skeletonized, machined aluminum billet.


Tyrant Designs MOD ForeGrip

Tyrant Designs rolled out their new MOD ForeGrip just in time for Black Friday. We mentioned it briefly then but it is worth going back for a detailed look.


The MOD ForeGrip, like most everything that rolls out of the Tyrant Designs shop, is CNC machined from aluminum and also features a polymer grip insert. It’s design allows it to be mounted on either M-LOK or KeyMod slots. Tyrant Designs takes great care with the finishing of these grips with all of them being chamfered to reduce sharp edges.

The shape of the MOD ForeGrip allows for both thumbs forward and thumb over grips. The polymer insert gives the shooter’s palm something to grip will the hooked shape gives something to pull back against when drawing the rifle aggressively into the shoulder pocket. The MOD ForeGrip also features a short, heavily textured ledge that works as a barricade stop.

The MOD ForeGrip manages to pack a lot of features into a relatively slim package that sits very close to the rail it is mounted on. It weighs in at 1.7 ounces thanks to its radically skeletonized design.

Available in black, red, blue and grey the Lightweight Pro series is CNC machined from a single piece of aerospace grade aluminum.

“The Lightweight Pro tips the scales at 3.4 ounces and is lighter than the majority of available grips currently on the market. ( Yes we mean polymers too) ! We set out to create the lightest, most ergonomic grip on the market without compromising the structural integrity and quality.

It instantly gives the operator the confidence needed in any weather or scenario, all while maintaining the consistency needed for a light weight build.
