Our low profile handtsop is designed for modern shooting grips. It features a forward sweep to create an optimal position for the hand while maintaining a small footprint. With deep serrated texturing on the front, it will provide a solid gripping surface in a variety of conditions. The sides are textured as well to provide a positive grip.

The handstop is reversible as and features a slightly less than 90 degree angle on the reverse. With a built-in front and read barricade stop, this handstop can preform multiple functions in a very convenient form factor. The handstop takes up a single MLOK slot and weighs a mere 14 grams (½ ounce). It is made from nylon polymer.

We recommend a torque value of 30-35in/lbs for mounting on aluminum handguards. A torque value of 12-15in/lbs is recommended for Magpul polymer handguards.

    Solidly built, no issues so far. Fits nice and snug and works perfectly with my m-lok rail. Very fast shipping and easy company to deal with.

    Very happy with shiping, fullfillment, and build quality. held up to being used as a barrier stop, I like the ergonomics over my bcm gunfighter afg. The mlok came assembled/screwed in so it installed easily, no hassle install.

  3. Andrew Bonner (verified owner)

    Fast shipping, build quality on the handstop is solid and it is very low profile but still has plenty of room for its intended use. Install was super easy and the mlok nut did not even need adjusting to fit the handguard.

    Quality material! Ran around 500 rounds with it today on the range for the first time and I was very impressed!! 100% would recommend Keaton have yet to receive a product that isn’t top tier along with their amazing customer service!

    It’s made of polymer but I don’t see any reason for it to fail with rough use. It’s sturdy despite having one MLOK attachment point. The textured serrations help it from slipping off your hand or a barricade if it’s being used as a barricade stop. I put this hand stop on my Beretta A300 Ultima Patrol to use as a barricade stop and it works great. It also doesn’t stick out width wise from the A300 handguard as it’s a pretty narrow profile. The serrations also match the OEM Beretta furniture which is a plus. Previously, I was using the Strike Industries mini hand stop with cable management as a barricade stop but this will live on my shotgun now. The only reason why I left 4 stars (a high 4) is because there’s always room for improvement. Overall, it’s a solid hand stop/barricade stop. I am considering the Tenderizer Barricade Stop as it looks more minimalist. I’ll look for new products in the future from Kratos for sure.

    Great handstop that feels very solid on the gun.

  7. (verified owner)

    Aggressive, ascetically pleasing, and extremely usable without breaking the bank. Another home run for Kratos.

    My initial impressions are that it’s very solid. The texturing on it is grippy and aggressive. I’ll update this review later on as I actually get more time with it, but I wanted to offer initial thoughts. One thing I think could be improved however, is the direction of the grooves on the curved surface. I feel as though vertical lines may provide better traction over horizontal. Overall though, extremely sturdy, and I am very pleased with it.

    I have been looking for a new handstop that conforms to some of the things I have been looking for in a forward grip. I have used the BCM KAG and True North GripStop, but was looking for something that was in between the two. Tried a friend’s Emissary Dev and that was close, but didn’t give me leverage I was looking for.

    Saw this pop up on MTS group and got a hold of it. The radius and angle are what I was looking for to give me the leverage I need on the front of the gun. The texture is super aggressive and it’s the perfect profile.

    Usually I don’t care about aesthetics, but this does look good.

    Locks up solid as a rock on the handguard. Texture is just right and pleasant to use. The size works great for my large hands. I rate 10/10 and will definitely be getting more.

    MTS team approved

    Finally had a nice enough day out to take it out to the range. Very well built and solid lock up on hand. Bought 2 for a few of my rifles, will buy more in the future. Excellent work from Kratos Design!

  12. chrizzain (verified owner)

    Extremely solid lockup and zero flex. Excellent stippled texture prevents any slippage. The large mounting bolt uses a 5/32 Allen wrench to secure it to the rail. I would highly recommend this product to anyone!
