    I've seen some of those.

    First time I ever came across an allen head screw on an AR grip, let's just say their ear was probably burning for a while because I was pretty vocal about how stupid that was.

    They're supposed to be a flat head screw.

    Everyone has a flat head screwdriver. But not everyone has a 4 or 5 inch long allen key.

    I personally like the positive engagement of a socket head cap screw (allen), but for simplicity the slotted is the way to go. Like john said, you can find (or make) a flat screwdriver pretty easy. I dont know the thread pitch of the grip screws of the top of my head, 1/4- 20 maybe?

    Both my ARs came with socket head grip screws. I thought that was normal when I went to change out the furniture. And I thought I would never use those T-handle Allen wrenches I bought 5 years ago, lol. IIRC, the MOE grips came with a flathead screw. I reused the original socket head screws tho, so much easier.

    BTW OP, congrats on the new M&P 15 Sport. It's a good one.

    Sounds like an excuse to purchase more tools! :)
