Default AR-15 Palm Shel Grip

Weird question... Does anyone know if the DPMS grip w/ palm shelf, or the ergo palm shelf grip is legal in california? Cheaper than dirt.com says they will not ship to me. Never had this issue before. Anyone have any experience at all? Putting a real damper on the build. Any alternatives if not?

Cheaper than Dirt is not CA friendly.

Another reason not to give them your business.

I have no idea why they wouldn't ship it.

No they are not. I've been emailing a rep from there and they said I could buy it at my local store, but they cannot ship that specific product. So I googled the product and bought it right away from some where else. Just got a thermold mag in the mail today too. Didn't lock into place!!! Wtf!!! CTD!!!

That's odd, I have around ten Thermold 20rd and 30rd mags ($4 and $7 repectively from the local Sportsmans Warehouse) and handled another 12 or so and never had one that wouldn't lock in.

Now I wouldn't trust them for serious business but as a range mag on the cheap you can't beat them. They don't look as durable as PMAGs but all worked well. Anyway, try it in another AR and if no go CTD should make it right.

I just installed a magpul trigger guard, but I'm not sure if that's why it won't lock. Its a stripped lower, but the mag release is in, so I'm assuming that's the only piece holding it in place. I thought it was odd too. I gave it a very generous amount of force trying to get it to lock. My gf's brother has an AR, I'm going to see if it'll fit in his.

I don't see how the Magpul trigger guard, if installed right, would interfere with a magazine. Got a picture of it in your lower? To be honest I've never installed one as I like the old GI style guard so use it as my "signature" on a build. But the Magpul in pictures I've seen doesn't extend forward far enough to interfere with a mag. I'm thinking it might be on backwards.

Glad the Thermold worked on the other AR and I guess you'd better try other mags to make sure something's not wrong with yours. A mag should lock in real easy on a stripped lower that has the mag release installed properly.

It's not the guard that I have a problem with. Not too many ways you can put that in unless you drill a hole through the other side of the front. The magazine I had bought has a lip that extends further out at the back. A standard guard goes straight across, but this one comes down to make room for larger fingers or gloves. It wouldn't clear the guard only by a cm, but enough not to lock in place.

Here's a pic of the mag. Kinda hard to see the back lip.
