NTOA Adds The Ryker Grip To Its Member Tested And Recommended Program

Ryker Grip

The National Tactical Officers Association has recently added the Ryker Grip to its Member Tested and Recommended Program, which is intended to assist NTOA members in selecting functional products avaiable to the tactical community. Quotes from NTOA members about the Ryker Grip include:

“The [Ryker] Grip is hands down a game changer in the AR/Shotgun manipulation business. It may look a little silly, but it is violently effective. Most drills with the M4 were hostage rescue and the accuracy and quickness between multiple targets was phenomenal.”

“I have deployed my rifle on scene multiple times with the [Ryker] Grip and honestly; I never knew it was there because it just felt right.”

“The grip has an ergonomic feel to it and after several hundred rounds fired, I did notice less fatigue on my support hand and arm allowing for longer time on target and faster target acquisition.”


The Ryker Grip is a unique, side-mounted forward grip for long guns. Designed to be biomechanically optimized, the grip’s offset nature is reported to aid shooters in improving weapon accuracy and stability, as well as target acquisition and recoil management.

    holding my arm out when firing gets tiring.

      Yeah, hipster gun range aikido posturing. Holding your arm that far from your CG and using a tiny muscle group to maintain it is bio-mechanically unsustainable, I dunno, has anyone seen a combat vid (and there’s thousands of hours of footage from the past 20 years) where this Costa Ludicrous inspired new wave gunslinger judo moves are used..?

        TBH it won’t work on the M4 particularly if you have a carbine length hand guard and/or have an IR laser & light. Heck with a 11″ hand guard and just a short SF M300 there is barely enough room to grip it in a modified version of the clamp grip.

    This thing may be the greatest upgrade ever but I’ll never know. To me it looks like the shooting world’s version of the shake weight. But, if it works for you…..

    am I the only one who’s first thought was start trek?…

    I heard this feels like you are gripping a potato attached to your rifle

    Finally somebody else is saying the emperor has no clothes! These guys are close to home and travel in some of the same circles. This thing is so gimmick. When all the guys on the pro shooting circuit compete with them then you will know the claims are true. The “shake weight of shooting” should be a hashtag.

    This reminds me of the squeeze balls that mental health passes out at resiliency training.

    NTOA approved doesn’t really hold much weight with me.

    What I really need to know is if this is approved by Horshack and his TL, bro.

    The NTOA stamp of approval means literally nothing. As a NTOA member you can sign up to receive gear for reviews. You can be Joe Schmoe from podunk PD that has a three man tac team and do a review for NTOA. You write two or three paragraphs about how awesome the product was the thirty minutes you used it and bam! stamp of approval.
