The newly-established Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Groupno known connection to the pharmaceutical company, although their company logos are extremely similaris preparing to launch a line of AR parts starting with a polymer pistol grip.
With the help of Magpul they've developed an un-textured pistol grip that has a near vertical slant to it at just 13 degrees from perpendicular. These vertical pistol grips are emerging from a few different manufacturers including Magpul and Bravo Company Manufacturing and give people who prefer to shoot with their rifle stock collapsed or near-collapsed a more comfortable grip.
The shelf price for this grip is expected to be about $20. Umbrella left the first one smooth so that you may stipple it if you choose, and they will be coming out with an aggressively-textured grip in the future.
It's manufactured from DuPont Super Tough technology heat and impact resistant polymer, it's a drop-in replacement for AR-15 platform rifle grip and uses the standard trigger index Mil-Spec 51958 1/4-28 pan head #3 Phillips screw. When it becomes available Umbrella will offer this grip in black, flat dark earth and olive drab green. Umbrella grips are made in the U.S. at their Virginia Beach, Va. facility.

Is Alice involved?
Oh boy, an AR lower with Umbrella Corporation on the receiver. Not going to sell well in my opinion.
This is why I love america and (most) Americans.
I'm kinda wondering if this is a spoof with the same corporation name and almost same logo.
About 5 years ago I had an idea for a REVERSE angle grip. seems to me that would be best for using the rifle with the buttstock collapsed. I intended to make one out of wood for my AR. Never got around to it though.
