Product Review: B5 Systems Grip and Trigger Guard for the AR-15

B5 systems is a quality parts manufacturer that produces execelant upgrades for the Ar15 platform. Functionality aside, the fit and finish is nothing short of great.  

I recently had the opportunity to try out the B5 Systems Type 23 P-Grip and Bravo trigger guard for AR-15 rifles, and I must say, I'm thoroughly impressed. B5 Systems, a renowned manufacturer in the firearm industry, has once again delivered products that offer exceptional quality and performance.

The B5 systems Pistol Grip

Let's start with the B5 Systems Type 23 P-Grip. One of the standout features of this grip is the increased vertical grip angle and extended tang. These design elements greatly enhance ergonomics, providing a more comfortable and natural grip. Additionally, the grip's aggressive texture ensures a secure and firm hold, even in challenging conditions. It's a small but crucial detail that contributes to improved retention and overall shooting control. I'm running the B5 Systems Type-23 on my M4 build, and I have to say the texture of this grip dramatically increases my control of the rifle.  This is a detail often overlooked when considering Ar15 grips. 

The grip is also constructed from Mil-Spec material, which guarantees its durability and reliability. B5 Systems offers this grip in all standard colors, allowing you to choose one that matches your personal style or firearm setup.

B5 Bravo Trigger Guard

Moving on to the B5 Systems Bravo trigger guard, it provides a drop-in upgrade over the standard AR trigger guard. Its enlarged profile is particularly beneficial for those who wear gloves, whether in cold weather or tactical situations. The increased size allows for easy access to the trigger even when wearing bulkier gloves, ensuring seamless operation when it matters most. Moreover, the Bravo trigger guard retains the original swing-down function, making it compatible with heavier winter gloves.

In terms of construction, the Bravo trigger guard is made of 6061 aluminum, a material known for its strength and durability. The Mil-Spec Type III anodized finish not only adds an attractive aesthetic but also provides excellent corrosion resistance, ensuring the trigger guard withstands the test of time.

As for the specifications, the B5 Systems Type 23 P-Grip weighs a mere 2.20 ounces and has a width of 1.24 inches. It's impressively lightweight and doesn't add unnecessary bulk to your firearm. The Bravo trigger guard weighs 3.00 ounces, measures 2.10 inches in length, and stands at a height of 0.53 inches. These dimensions contribute to a well-balanced and streamlined build, enhancing the overall shooting experience.

The B5 Systems Type 23 P-Grip and Bravo trigger guard are exceptional upgrades for AR-15 rifles. The grip's improved ergonomics, aggressive texture, and battery storage capability provide a comfortable and functional shooting experience. Meanwhile, the trigger guard's enlarged profile and swing-down function accommodate glove use without compromising performance.
