"Tin Man" AR15 Speargun Handle Frame

Available in 3 and 4 hole patterns

In cooperation with custom gun builders /designers, Jeff Derocher (AKA Tin Man) and Chad Morris (AKA Griswold) of the Bayou Design Team, MAKO Spearguns is now producing the "Tin Man AR15 Handle Frame". Machined to exact tolerances from a solid block of American made aircraft grade aluminum, these handles are now available for the Do It Yourself gun builders as well.

  • Designed, produced and tested by Jeff DeRocher (AKA Tin Man) and Chad Morris (AKA Griswold), this design takes advantage of the inherent geometric strength of the military M-16/AR-15 assault rifle design. Once snugged down with the included high strength 1/4" bolt, the bulk of gun recoil forces are carried by the handle/frame interface.

  • For an even stronger assembly the "Tin Man" AR15 Handle Frame is now available in a 4 hole pattern.

  • The "Tin Man" Handle Frame accepts many standard AR-15 rifle grips (NO MODIFICATIONS REQUIRED) such as the Hogue grips and the Midway USA #A-2 grips also available from MAKO Spearguns.

  • The grip is easily attached to the handle frame with a single ΒΌ" high strength, coated stainless steel bolt. That means the grip is easily removable to fit the gun in a smaller tube for travel. You do not need to unscrew the complete handle frame from the gun which results in weakened screw holes on the gun. Simply remove the grip from the frame and keep the frame attached to the gun.

  • Designed for the DIY builder in mind, even the 3/16" radius on the corners were selected to match a 3/8" diameter router bit for easy recessed mounting.

  • The trigger slot is wide enough to accommodate all of the commonly available trigger mechs.

  • The push rod groove in the top mounting plate and the machined slot in the trigger guard make remote trigger installations easy for mid-handled guns. You can make your own slide trigger for a perfect fit, or use our MAKO slide trigger.

  • Top plate dimensions are (5-5/16" long x 1-3/16" wide) and are interchangeable with many other commonly used handles.

  • The top plate is secured with three #8 countersunk screws which are positioned in the industry standard locations for ease of installation.

  • Machined from a solid block of American made aircraft grade aluminum with mil spec. hard anodizing for superior protection against the elements.

  • For Rear Handle applications that don't require a push rod, choose the 4 Hole Rear Handle option above.

Great product at a fair price April 8, 2016
Reviewer: Robert from NY United States  
Much better and less expensive than any other AR compatible grip frame I could find.  A diy stock builders dream!

I used it for a diy bullpup stock I built for my air rifle out of carbon fiber. It looks awesome.

Areas it could be improved:

The slot for the trigger is very narrow. You'll need to drill it out for many triggers. The metal is very thick so it can't be used easily with shorter trigger blades.

Being offered more choice of screw hole positions would give it a broader range of uses. Maybe offer one with no screw holes so we can drill our own.

I would like to see a version that was compatible with beaver tail AR grips.

These frames could easily be made lighter by losing some of the width and length. It is rigid enough to be stable with less metal.

All these points are small and this is an excellent product that can be used on more than just spear guns.

Reviewer: Peter Aderinto from Kailua Kona, HI United States  
Excellent product and fast service.  Will definitely buy from MAKO again.  The Tin Man frame with pink hogue grip is a perfect match.  Thank you very much.
