    [h=2]21 AR Grips compared[/h]
    The evolution of the AR rifle grip began not long ago when shooters realized they no longer fired their weapons using stances developed in the 1960′s. Back in the day, armorless shooters were taught to use the bladed stance and a high elbow. But today, body armor and enhanced understanding of body mechanics during shooting and weapon manipulation has lead to changes in how a rifle is shouldered. Emerging doctrine now teaches us to shoot with shoulders squared up to the target and elbows tucked in for stability–and to keep from getting shot in the arm.
    To accommodate the updated stance, gripmakers have changed the angle the grip sits at on the rifle’s base. Looking at a rifle from the side, you’ll see the bottom, leading edge of the newer grip is further forward. Reducing the grip angle allows shooters a straighter wrist which translates into better trigger control, more recoil control and a stronger grip for weapon manipulation.
    Look at the range of grips offered today and you’ll see the evolution is underway, with a range of choices that accommodate AR shooters with large, average and small hands shooting from bladed or updated stances. The grip is the most intimate gripping surface of the rifle and has spawned a huge breadth of options to serve the comfort and efficiency interests of all shooters.

    There's also a pretty good article on flash hiders and muzzle brakes. Just click on the "AR" link at the bottom of the page and scroll on.
