    With the same shape and size as the original Scorpion grip, the new Scorpion Grip GEN 2 has improved finish and features a more aggressive 25 line per inch crosshatch on the side panels and gripping grooves on the front to guaratnee a secure grip even when your hands or the grip are wet or sweaty. It also has been redesigned to accept an inlcuded washer along with the nylock nut.

    It is available in black, tan, and green. It can be backordered at http://www.manticorearms.com and grips will start shipping on or before May 25th.

    Yes, it will fit all models of 556, 522, and 551.

    In fact, it should fit all American and Swiss made SIG 55X series guns.

    Very nice, I like the Gen 2 much more than the Gen 1. 8)


    Do you plan to incorporate the US hatch door or the Swiss style slide cap into a later Gen release?

    FYI the "Backorder" is actually a preorder, grips are coming off the molds now, if you place an order they will ship in about 2 weeks.


    These will fit all models of SIG 556 including the 556R, 556 pistols, etc. It will also fit the SIG 522 and the SIG 551 (the version that takes SIG mags)

    It should bolt right on to any Swiss made lower too!

    Any word on if you're going to do a hollow model with a trapdoor like the prototype?

    Or like I asked, with the channel to allow the OEM Swiss slide plate.

    When the Gen 1 first came out I was just glad to see an aftermarket grip become available, though I wasn't too crazy about the overall design. However, this Gen 2 model is much improved and aesthetic to boot. Well done Manticore!

    WOW! Great job Manticore. You were right on target with this newer grip. I'm glad to see your company is researching accessory possibilities for the 556 platform.

    I have to say the wait was well worth it. I had sent an e-mail regarding possible variations on your original grip, prior to joining the SIG 556 site.....and your company has done a splendid job of producing this newer design.

    I'll be putting my order in for two.

    Thanks for the kudos guys, it is much appreciated! The Scorpion GEN 2 is one of the reasons the safety levers and EMBR mag release have been taking longer than anitcipated. We just had to keep this under wraps for various reasons!

    Officially the Scorpion GEN 2 grips will be in stock in numbers on or before May 25th. Realistically as parts come off the mold in the next few weeks we will start packaging and filling backorders.

    ...and for those who wanted a good match to the SIG green, well, I think you'll be happy when I post a pic of the first Scorpion GEN 2 green grip to come off the mold this week. And I got at least one more surprise up my sleeve for those that like color. 8)

    Green grips- Scorpion GEN 1, SIG Swiss OEM, Scorpion GEN 2

    As you can see we went back and got a closer match to the color with the GEN 2!

    We have a few GEN I greens left if anyone likes the lighter color.

    The Gen2's definitely look more aestheticly pleasing, but I'm also in the "trap door compartment" group, what are the possibilites of making a Gen3 that can use the Swiss slide door or one like the Sigarms hinge one?

    Being that we are just starting up commercial production of the GEN 2 grip, there are no plans for a GEN 3 as of yet, but I will keep any comments in mind.

    Development of the GEN 2 was driven in part by a specific interested party and our own interest in improving the original design.
