New and Improved - Magpul MIAD GEN 1.1 Grip Kit – TYPE 1: AR15/AR10 5.56x45 receivers
For all those who were looking forward to a more comfortable and ergonomic version of the standard AR 15 and AR 10 grip, the MIAD or the Magpul Mission Adaptable Gen 1.1 Grip is a perfect choice. The MIAD grip is intended to enhance ergonomics with a variety of changes and inclusions. To enable tailored hand fit, the rear and front straps are designed to be interchangeable. The texture has been modified to be extra tough to ensure better weapon control. It comes in 2 different configurations and works well with all Magpul grip cores for storage compatibility.
As an add on to the initial MIAD Grip, the updated version comes with significant enhancements in strap retention and a new grip core that can hold a ½ oz lubrication bottle(excluding oil) which is also included in the overall package.
- The first type or Type 1 Kit (MAG520) is designed to fit almost all 5.56 * 45 and 7.62 * 51 AR receivers.
It should be noted that certain 7.62 * 51 receivers might need TYPE 1 or 2 in accordance with the weapon generation and other elements. While Type 1 goes with most of 7.62 * 51 AR lower receivers, it might or might not have a gap between the receiver and the back strap’s beavertail and this variation affects only the look and not its function. The overall package includes mounting hardware and is manufactured completely in the United States.

*NOTE: Some additional 7.62x51 makes might require either the TYPE 1 or TYPE 2 Kit depending on the generation of the weapon and/or other considerations. In general, the TYPE 1 Kit will fit most all 7.62x51 AR lower receivers but there may or may not be a gap between the backstrap's beavertail and the receiver. This gap is purely aesthetic and will not affect function.
