Default Featureless Ar grip

Iam looking for a featureless Ar grip that will not interfere with my factory lwrc ambidextrous safety and will give me a shelf for my thumb. I was looking at the megafin by strike industries, but a lot of people say that I would have to change to a non ambi safety. What would be the best?

i'm pretty sure the vagparca has a little groove for ambi safety clearance besides they are only $10 mod it

I actually bought one but it felt too short, it was shorter than my Magpul grip. I forgot to mention that I also want to have a full sized grip

i do not know whether it will work with your ambi safety or not, but i've had the opportunity to hold quite a few featureless grips and the Sparrow Dynamics grip hands down was my favorite.

I understand there is another very similar with a palm swell made by a different company - their name escapes me.

NC Star VAGPARCA...yes it's NC Star but it has a thumb shelf and is slotted for clearance of ambi safeties. I have two of them.

Nevermind...I see it's already been discussed.

I also run an Exile back strap fin as it’s a good answer.....but I had to try a few safeties to find one that worked to my liking. By far for me it was the Odin Works set in 45 degrees. Also as you know you need one that will work with the trigger group.....as that’s the other wrinkle.

Love my Sparrow grips, got another one yesterday on sale. If pistol grips were made legal here again, I'd keep the Sparrows on. They fit me that well and don't protrude downwards = better for bench shooting.

I also like their safety selector:

Most ambi safeties get in the way of your thumb or featureless grips on the right side. Our ambi safety levers can be mounted in 6 different positions so you can set it to what fits your configuration best and get it out of the way of your thumb with fin grips. Our grip is really nice too as others have already mentioned (thank you all for the support!), but it won't be as comfortable with the sling mount on the buffer tube end plate.

Here is our friend and competition shooter Mike Zingali using our grip and safety. The second half of the short video clip is in slow motion so you can see how he switches the safety off and then back on with his trigger finger.

Ambi safeties are needed with a Sparrow grip. I got some cheapos with a very smooth finish. The right side is shorter so it doesn't get in the way IF you are right handed. I'd try to get a reversed lefty-ambi safety if I was left handed.
