The Troy Industries TRX Extreme Rails took the AR-15 world by storm thanks to their combination of light weight, features, and price. However, users quickly found that the holes in the rail could start to feel like a cheese grater after a few long days of shooting. Many shooters started coming up with their own home-brew solutions because it seemed that Troy was not going to offer an off-the-shelf solution. Then, at the 2012 SHOT Show, Troy introduced the Squid Grips and TRX Extreme users everywhere clamored for their release. The Squid Grips are finally hitting dealer shelves and are available for order directly from Troy.
Squid Grips are a line of rubber “tubes” that fit into the holes on the TRX Extreme rails and cover the edges with hand saving rubber. They look somewhat like the suction cups on a squid’s tentacles – hence the name. They really look like a tremendous solution for those who find the Troy rails to be a bit hard on the hands or for those who just want to further enhance their grip on the rail.
The Squid Grips are available in Flat Dark Earth and Black (Black is only available from Troy dealers).
