About a year ago we showed the tooling for Tosten's upcoming stick grip in our grip round-up article, and now it's on the market. This morning we gave the new MS "Military Style" grip a quick squeeze at the Tosten Air Venture booth and are happy to report it feels just as good as expected.

In fact, given this grip's combination of affordability, features and custom outfitting it’s difficult to see the MS not becoming a common part in many cockpits. Tosten’s philosophy for the MS grip is customization. You can "build" a grip on the tostenmfg.com website, selecting from ambidextrous, right or left handed moldings, then select a number of rests, toggles, switches and buttons to dress it with.

All MS grips receive Tosten's soft touch finish, as on a better cell phone or camera. Pricing starts at $179 with an absolute pricing ceiling of $209.

The “off side” panel on the MS grip can be customized with your choice of this grooved panel or a thumb rest.

There are no lack of button positions on the MS grip, including the “trigger” and mushroom push-button on the finger-tip section of the grip. Switch function is determined by the user so you can get the PTT and flap switches right where you want.
