The Eighty Five is a new grip from Echo Nine Three that is inspired by the SVDS grip (and modern AR-15 grips). It’s basically a completely modern grip in terms of function but a real throwback when it comes to materials and looks.
The Eighty Five features a more vertical grip angle than most AK grips (85 degrees in relation to the bore… hence the name). The grip is tapered slim through the upper part to allow clearance for the thumb and trigger finger. It swells out from there to fill the rest of the firing hand.
These grips are made from Baltic Marine Birch laminate or Beech wood depending on the selected finish. They are available unfinished for DIYers who want to match their existing furniture or in accurate Russian Red and Chicom Orange shellac finishes.
