Shockwave Technologies Raptor Grip for Remington 870 Series
The Shockwave Technologies Raptor Grip is MADE IN AMERICA. With its enhanced texture, you gain a great hold on your weapon. And its glass-filled polymer construction is virtually indestructible.
This is a new style of bird’s head grip (aka birdshead grip aka witness protection grip aka chicken head grip aka border patrol grip aka entry-style grip aka bad ass grip) developed and manufactured by Shockwave Technologies, LLC in the U.S.A.
The Raptor Grip is molded of a super-tough glass-filled polymer and fits:
- Remington 870 12-gauge firearms
- New England Firearms (NEF) Pardner Pump Protector 12-gauge
- Harrington & Richardson (H&R) Pardner Pump Protector 12-gauge
- Interstate Arms Corp (IAC) Hawk Model 98 12-gauge
- Interstate Arms Corp (IAC) Hawk Model 982 12-gauge
- Interstate Arms Corp (IAC) Hawk Model 981R 12-gauge
Unique angle of the Raptor Grip minimizes felt recoil, allowing maximum control shot after shot. It also just looks badass. Order yours today. Yes, mounting hardware is included. (Requires a 3/16″ hex wrench for installation.)
Note that a pistol-grip-only Remington 870 firearm with a 14″ barrel and the Raptor Grip installed measures 26.5″ in overall length (measured parallel to the bore). The grip itself adds 5.5″ to the length of the weapon (measured parallel to the bore).
Of course, the Raptor Grip also fits 12-gauges with 18.5″, 20″, and longer barrels.
Note that there is no predefined hole for a sling swivel stud on the Raptor Grip. This allows you to put your sling swivel wherever you want it on the grip—not just where we think it should go. Just drill a 1/8″ pilot hole, and thread in your sling swivel stud.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
Raptor Grip for Maverick 88
The Raptor grip is an excellent fit and a great improvement over the standard pistol grip that came with the Maverick 88 shotgun. No more sore wrist or thumb using the Raptor, and much better control of the gun's recoil.
Raptor Grip for Remington 870
This is an excellent fit for the Remington 870. Be cautious if you're attempting to walk the line. It has to be 26 in overall, including this grip.

Remington 870 shockwave grip
I have purchased 4 of these at Mountsplus.Quality made and fast shipping, they goon a 12 gauge quickly. On a 20 gauge, you need the reducing ring.
Remington 870 raptor grip makes a ideal bush gun
The Remington 870 raptor grip is a great price, and it's comfortable to use. Much easier on my wrist than a regular pistol grip. It makes an ideal bush gun because of the length.

Shockwave Raptor Grip Looks and feels awesome.
I put this grip on an H&R Pardner Pump 12, and I love it. I purchased the shotgun for a home defense weapon and to get out a bust off some rounds, and this grip fits for me. If you like a pistol grip, go for it, but the Raptor grip is a lot more forgiving on the wrists. I would purchase this product again.
Great substitution for your home defense shotgun.
I wasn't a fan of the factory Remington 870 Tac Express buttstock, simply because it made it too bulky for home defense. Now, I can easily conceal my shotgun in my bedroom and, God forbid, if I ever have to use it for its purpose, I'm not carrying around a shotgun that's going to be banging on doors and making turning corners awkward. It is much more practical now. On top of that, this thing is incredibly easy to install and uninstall. That being said, I can easily put my stock back on for sport shooting or hunting. I mean, it really takes all of five minutes to switch them. One thing worth mentioning is that this does NOT come with instructions. So I'm going to write some quick and easy instructions for removing the Remington 870 Express buttstock and installing this guy: 1) There are two screws at the base of the stock buttstock. Place a Phillips head screwdriver in the holes, seated in the rubber. A flashlight will allow you to see that screws. 2) Once the screws are removed, you simply pull that rubber pad off. 3) With a flashlight, look inside, and you'll see the buffer rod with a flat head screw. Use a bigger flat head screwdriver and remove it. It takes a couple of minutes with lots of turning (unless you use a drill like me). 4) Pull the rod out and then simply remove the buttstock by pulling it off. Reassemble the buttstock, so no pieces go missing. 5) Take your new Shockwave nub and remove the plastic piece in the rear with a screwdriver or a coin. You'll see a hex screw. Grab a T-27 Torx bit and place the new buttstock exactly where the old one was seated. It's easy to line it up and put it in place. 6) With a T-27 equipped hex driver, start rotating the rod to the right until you see the buttstock lining up and feel the hex screw tightening. Tighten it just hand tightly as not to damage the rod or trigger assembly. 7) Replace the rear plastic cap and voila. Enjoy your new nub buttstock.
Shockwave Raptor grip
Solid, well made grip.
fits the H&R Pardner pump also
The Remington 870 model fits the H&R pardner pump also. This has to be the best shotgun pistol grip I've ever used comfortably on the wrists and palm. You will never go back to the old "saw handle" style grip again. The suggestion I have is adding baseball bat grip tape from the sporting goods aisle. If you think you will be shooting with sweaty hands...
Significantly reduced felt recoil compared to other grips
This grip is excellent for those who want a shorter package when it comes to their 12 gauge but dislike the feeling of more conventional grips. Though as a primer, I will say here that any pistol grip requires both practice and aptitude of proper shooting stance as well as recoil management. I would not recommend this for people who are either recoil shy, or inexperienced with Pistol Grip Only (henceforth acronymed as PGO) shotguns. Improper holding (IE, holding your firearm above your chin and/or less than a few inches away) will result in a 30 dollar tooth extraction for any and all who don't heed this warning. Now as to elaborate on my thoughts on the product. I wholeheartedly support this. PGO shotguns are among my favorite firearms to own and use, so I've gotten acquainted with several kinds. Most are fairly harsh when it comes to energy transfer into your wrists. But after taking this to the range, it is significantly softer shooting than other grips I own — even my Hogue tamer which up until trying this product was my gold standard for pistol grips. For anyone who owns a Stevens 320 and wants to use one of these, This will work with modification. Although the 320 is mostly a clone of the Winchester 1300, curiously, it doesn't use the v-shaped cut the Winchester does. It does, however, use a very similar mount as the Remington 870 though it will require you to be a little handy with either sandpaper and a file, or skill with a Dremel. (which is what I used) You will also need to use a different mounting bolt than what this stock comes with, as the one provided is of a smaller diameter than what is needed. I used the bolt the original stock came with. A couple of nuts to fill some space was needed in my case.
