Our website is a live inventory system. If you are able to choose your color and add it to your cart, then we have it in stock and can ship that same day or next business day. If you don't see the color you want, then it is out of stock (sorry no backorders; we don't like selling things we don't have). Please send us an email with your request and we will reply as quickly as we can concerning lead time. We know how difficult it is to manufacture and bring products to market. We didn't want to make any empty promises or do pre-orders over the last year, so we kept this under wraps until we had them "in our hands and ready to ship".

Why the need for a “Compliant Rifle Grip”?

Per recent California law, centerfire AR-15 rifles with bullet buttons are now considered assault weapons and must be registered before June 30th, 2018. Converting your rifle to a “featureless” rifle will mean that you will NOT be required to register it as an assault weapon. A “featureless” rifle is a fully functional rifle without the generic characteristics (or features) that define an assault weapon (such as a pistol grip, flash suppressor, telescoping stock, etc.). A “featureless” centerfire AR-15 rifle CAN have a normal and fully functional magazine release. Our CRG-15 rifle grip does NOT meet the California definition of a pistol grip (see details below*) due to the “forced” placement of the web of the trigger hand; therefore, we have classified this product as a “Compliant Rifle Grip”. The CRG-15 grip is an important aspect in the building of a “featureless” rifle.

Why the CRG-15 Rifle Grip?

There are other options to eliminating the pistol grip on your rifle to make it compliant or “featureless”, but many of them are not comfortable or functional such as kydex grip wraps or grip fins. Many also don’t look very good, or are downright ugly! Others are very expensive and difficult to change back if you want to go shooting in another state. In contrast, our CRG-15 rifle grip is very affordable and only requires one screw to install. We also designed it to be as comfortable and functional as possible, while keeping consistent with the modern look of the AR-15 platform (it matches other premium furniture already on your rifle). We believe our CRG-15 rifle grip is the highest quality, the best value, the best looking, and the most comfortable “non-pistol” grip available... we hope you agree!


We are not lawyers, and this is not legal advice. This and similar products have not been approved by the California Department of Justice. Even so, our attorneys, Michel & Associates P.C., prepared an analysis of the CRG-15 rifle grip and wrote an opinion stating that it is not a “pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon,” as that term is used in the definition of an “assault weapon” under California Penal Code section 30515(a)(1).

*Definition per State of California’s “Assault Weapons Identification Guide”, 3rd Edition, November 2001, page 80: “Pistol Grip, conspicuously protruding: A grip that allows for a pistol style grasp in which the web of the trigger hand (between the thumb and index finger) can be placed below the top of the exposed portion of the trigger while firing.”

Shipping Lead Time

We usually ship the same day or the next business day depending on what time your order is placed and what time USPS picks up. Please see the map below to determine the approximate transit days for USPS from our location in Shingle Springs, CA (we do ship to other states too, but mostly within California).

USPS Approx Ship Days

As we approach the June 30th deadline, we would like to remind everyone that you CAN disassemble your AR rifle (completely separate the upper from the lower) if you are unable to convert it to featureless in time. Below is an excerpt out of the Quick Reference Guide from Michel & Associates.

"DISASSEMBLY: A firearm has to be assembled and functioning to be an AW. Consequently, disassembling the firearm, or removing a crucial part of the firearm that will prevent it from functioning, or even taking the upper receiver off from the lower receiver, should take the firearm out from under the “AW” definition. But once disassembled, the firearm can never be reassembled in California into a configuration that meets the definition of an “AW,” and you should never manifest the intent to reassemble the firearm in an “AW” configuration in California (never discuss your firearm or how it might be reassembled with anyone). CAUTION: If a firearm is lacking a non-essential part, like a magazine, or a part not required for the firearm to function, or if the firearm is disabled by a gun lock but can otherwise still function properly, it is NOT a “disassembled” firearm. The firearm would still be considered an “AW”."

Buy it! July 30, 2018
Reviewer: Ivan from Los Angeles Area  
Buy it!  This is the best "non pistol" grip in looks and ergonomics for AR rifles.   The grip feels good in the hand but it's not as comfortable as a regular pistol grip.  I also installed their ambidextrous safety.  The safety works well.  I like the fact you can adjust the position of the levers to many different angles.  I recommend the grip and safety levers for anyone that wants/needs high quality parts for their AR rifles.  Ivan

The Sparrow Compliant AR15 grip is perfect! May 23, 2018
Reviewer: T. Carroll from Sacramento County  
I came so close to spending over $250 per rifle to go featureless using new stocks, etc. Then I saw a review of this product, called them and with their help I was able to transition each of my non-compliant rifles, to CA compliant for less than $60 each! I love the look feel of the grip - and it took me less than 10 minutes per rifle to make the switch - fantastic product and customer service!

Great fit for my JR Carbine May 15, 2018
Reviewer: Matt from San Jose , CA United States  
I have a unique rifle, the JR Carbine cannot use the rear take down pin to disassemble and then remove the mag. So the only way to not register is to make it featureless. I seen a couple options then I stumbled upon the CRG-15 and it looked interesting. The more I looked at pictures I decided to give it a try. The od green matches my magpul stock perfect. No issues installing. It’s different but comfortable. Great job sparrow!

Excellent grip and customer service April 15, 2018
Reviewer: Michael Boucher from Litchfield, ME United States  
Bought this grip after extensively researching CA compliant grip options. The grip feels natural and I am able to grab the grip easily with no issues related to my thumb hitting the receiver tube extension or end plate. While there is no real replacement for a pistol grip, the SD grip easily fits the bill and after a few more days at the range I believe it  will feel as natural as the old school grip. I shoot 3-gun and I am looking forward to using this grip for future competitions in northern CA.  thank you for the excellent product and superior customer support.

CRG-15 is Great March 30, 2018
Reviewer: A. Lopez from Yucaipa, CA United States  
So happy to have made the purchase. Shipping was super helpful yuck and the grip came well packaged. The OD green matches spot on with Magpul. The finish and quality of the grip is amazing. It fits my hand really well and is very comfortable to hold. I feel I have positive control of my rifle even with a one hand hold. I still have the mil-spec safety and I can easily operate it. Amazing grip. Thank you for an awesome product
