A few weeks ago at the Texas Militaria Expo I finally picked up a grip, a very nice MC-2.  I just assumed it was a B-8 until I looked at the stamping.  


What is the difference between the B-8 and MC-2?  


Thanks for looking,

"On contacting Guardian to enquire about the grips some time ago, they say there is no physical difference between the B-8 and the MC-2, just the designation and part number 50C 4719 and 56C 3002 respectively. There does not seem to be any apparent 'rule' as to what is fitted to the various types of aircraft although, from what I have seen, most of the US Air Force 'fighter' style complete and as removed control sticks that I have in my collection, tend to have an MC-2 and the trainer/second line aircraft and Helicopters the B8/B8A. But as I said, I haven't seen any specific documentation to confirm my thoughts regarding this."
