Thoughts on hand stops

Just installed one this weekend.   With age I'm losing some grip strength and hope it will assist me in pulling my PCC into my shoulder.

 

Tried it in a few matches and a lot of dry fire.  It helped pulling the gun into my shoulder but seemed to always be in the way so I pulled it off.  Can;t teach an old dog new tricks.

Now with my shorter barrel set up I can hook my index finger around the end of the handguard, but I am thinking a small hand stop will help me to remember to pull the stock into my shoulder.

I am so use to shooting my s&w 15-22 that I am having to retrain myself to hold on a little tighter.

I use one of these:

It is light, cheap, allows for a memory point, reminds me to pull back into my shoulder and is a barricade stop.

Sorry for the ignorance, but what is it, where did you get it?

I have a nice small one on my gun I found on E Bay for 6$ shipped!

 

It is rounded so your index finger sits on it very comfortable.

Same for me.  I hold my handguard wherever it is appropriate for the target.  The hand stop doesn't help there.  I have no trouble pulling the PCC into my shoulder.

Arisaka finger stops on my rifles and carbines.

Ditto. I got mine from amazon for around $23.

I use a Magpul M-Lok angled fore grip, gives me a little more meat to grab onto on low profile handgaurds (with thumb-over-bore), and overall just feels right...as well as assisting in pulling into shoulder.

 

I have an Aero 5.56 upper incoming that has a larger-diameter handguard, so I might try one of the smaller 'nubs' like what's been referenced earlier in this thread.  But generally I do like having that reference out there.

I took a BCM gunfighter VFG and cut it down on the chop saw. I like that it's angled (I run it rearward) and the smaller height means it acts as a handstop. I took it off because my hand placement after sprinting to a new position was never consistent enough with the speed I wanted. I then just ran some cheap grip tape up front covering a large area. Has worked well for me. 

 

I'm now trying a cain arms *thumb rest [generic]* (like $12 on ebay) mounted at 10:30 for a forward mount reference and the grip tape to help pull the gun into the pocket. Not sure I like it.
