I'm considering getting a different grip, and this is one of the ones I've been looking at, but have some questions.
The description says that the angle is different, but not specifically what/how, and it's hard to tell from the pictures I've seen. Is it angled a little more straightly downward, or angled even more extremely rearward than the A2 or MIAD grips?
The description also says that it puts the shooter's hand closer to the receiver, but does not specify if that means farther forward, higher up, or both?

It looks pretty square and blocky too, which is good if any of the other guns I've ever handled are something to go by. square and blocky grips always seem to feel more comfortable in my hand, (think glocks) and also seem to give me better grip and control than a more round/oval shape, especially when it comes to slipping, and or rotating in my hand, which a rounder grip will specifically facilitate.
I'm definitely going to get one of the battle axe CQB grips.
I just converted mine from an MOE(excellent grip still) to the Troy and I like the way the troy pushes my hand up...I can't decide how I like the look...it definitely helps that im using troy mags as the scale pattern gives the gun some consistency. Just be warned its for avg-small hands...if you have sausage fingers this won't work for you.
Another benefit I did notice about it over something more standard or even the MOE is that it puts your trigger finger much closer to the trigger which is a huge plus...course if you have really long fingers I don't know how much benefit that would be.
All in all I like it and its staying put....the screw is longer than the MOE screw though and it was quite an effort to get it fully installed on my spikes lower....but shes rock solid now.
