How to grasp the Hammerhead-equipped rifleHammerhead is designed to be held with the thumb over the top of the grip. Wrap your hand around it for a secure assertive hold on your rifle.
Please note, photos may not necessarily represent a legal configuration in your state.
- Relaxed hold: This is the recommended hold for most shooters. Just rest the bottom of the Hammerhead into the upcurled fingers of your trigger hand, and then lay your thumb gently across the top of the spine. Relax and think "Wooden Rifle." Ideally your hand won't even need to contact the back of the receiver at all. Don't think of the Hammerhead as a "grip." Forget what you know about gripping pistol grips. This isn't one.

- Choke Hold: This hold is not recommended. Slide your trigger hand flush up against the back of the receiver and grip tightly. The back of the receiver may cause discomfort with the web of your trigger hand, especially during rifle operation and recoil. Shooters with small hands may have no choice but to use this type of hold. If this is the case try softening the back of the receiver by sticking a small piece of velcro tape to the back of the receiver to cover the sharp edges. Use the fuzzy half of the velcro, not the hook half. Plasti-dip could also be used to soften the edges.
