I had a uspalm mag and grip. Sold them both, because I stumbled into a pile of chinese flatbacks at $5 a piece, and the uspalm was too narrow at the top for my hands. I have long fingers and big hands, so a hogue with a slip on handall over it fits better

There was a lot of things at play that led to the downfall of US Palm. One of the big ones was they initially lied about their gen 1 mags being metal lined in certain places, and were outed when someone cut them open and called them on it. They fixed that but when it was all said and done a lot of people had soured on them as a company....and rightfully so.

They made a pretty decent chest rig, which they almost had to do since their mags either barely fit or didn't fit in a lot of other AK rigs and pouches. I had one sometime around the 2011 timeframe and ran it in a class and found it just had too much material, rode too low, and didn't fit me all that well. It was well made, it just didn't work for me.

Their grips are kinda like current banned AK's, most people over looked them when they were on every gun store shelf and catalog and then went full retard when they were no longer readily available. I've seen the real ones go for $80-125, definitely not worth that. I still have one of the originals on a rifle and while it is my favorite AK grip, it's still a $25 grip that works well for some people and not so much for others. The PTS grips, which were officially licensed from US Palm when US Palm was still in business, are a good replacement for the same money the originals cost back in the day.
