Fixing industry problems one gun at a time.
The Odin Armory Necromancer is here and shipping!
The Necromancer was an early prototype before the Sentinel variant was released, it's smaller in all aspects and does not interfere with optics or optic plates due to the chamfer cut on the rear edge of the slide shield and lower height profile. The thumb pad is also skinner to be proportionate with the rest of the body. Additionally, the thumb rest angle is the same. Whether you are EDC, Competition, LEO, Military, Security, or a range shooter; the Odin Armory Series are the absolute best due to size, angle, width, and of course the fact that it folds flat as it enters a holster and automatically deploys to 90 degrees after leaving the holster via a Hinged torsion spring. The Necromancer follows our Lifetime Warranty Guarantee because its made from Hardened 17-4 Stainless Steel bar stock and cut on a 5 axis CNC Mill. We harden it again and quench it for superior strength on top of a PVD coating.
No other thumb rest in the industry offers a lifetime warranty because they are using inferior metals and hardening techniques. Odin Armory ran the numbers, did the research, collected the data, and spent thousands on prototypes before we could release a production version. Our initial P320 V1 thumb rest is 36K rounds fired and still no sign of wear. We are the best because we don't break, or bend. When Quality, Longevity, Innovation, and Warranty matter we have your back. The Necromancer is only offered in PVD black at this time.
How does it help? Glad you asked. If you hold your hand out like you are about to shake hands, your thumb and index finger angle are at approximately 55 degrees, we created our thumb rest at this angle for natural indexing without having to contort the wrist, hands, or fingers to a non-natural angle to get on the firearm. When time, ease of use, fast indexing count, you need to be target focused instead of thinking of how your hands will meet individual firearm parts before firing as 55 degrees is the most natural and repeatable angle. Odin Armory parts use the "Combat Grip Method" with the right thumb over the left thumb (stacked), squeezing the off hand grip move the thumb forward and creates tremendous forward pressure through the firearm thus mitigating a majority of the recoil. The harder you squeeze, the more recoil advantage you will receive.
The Odin Armory family of thumb rests are designed to allow Tremendous recoil reduction, More time on target, Less aiming, Faster target acquisition, Less sight drift, and build shooter confidence as you cannot shoot faster and more accurate till you shoot flatter. We know all about shooting flat! Our thumb rest is also great for training, women and children, handicaps and grip difficulty such as arthritis, injury, congenial anomalies, etc. Our customers greatest testaments are how it totally changed their groups, confidence, made it more fun, and competition shooters are now winning more matches as it is USPSA, IDPA, and IPSC legal due to being a "small parts replacement".
*** Does not work with Sig 1911 and Wilson Combat 1911s. ***
Our folding thumb rests utilize a torsion spring and hinge design to fold flat to the firearm upon entering the holster and folds back out automatically. Real firearm innovation and revolutionary engineering at it's finest.
The 1911/2011 thumb rest replaces the factory takedown pin/slide release hardware. When the folding thumb rest is indexed when the slide is open, upon applying pressure to the lower half of the thumb rest (rocking downward motion) with the thumb, the slide will release to battery.

The Sig Sauer P320 Series of pistols employs a tilting barrel breech lock concept created by John Moses Browning known as the: Browning Breech Lock.
Whenever the trigger is pressed during the firing sequence, the barrel and slide move backward a short distance and stop momentarily to allow a majority of the gasses to escape the barrel thus allowing safe cartridge extraction. During this process, the barrel stops on a crossbar due to angular lugs under the breech body causing the breech to drop and duck under the slide and continue rearward for case extraction. This is the exact moment that rearward and angular momentum start a dreaded process known as recoil and pushes rearward into your hand.
Further continuance of the slide rearward at a high rate of speed causes the front of the barrel to make contact with the slide, due to the angled lug under the breech the barrel tilts upward and the slide is continues to its furthest rearward point, this causes upward angular momentum at the the breech lock/crossbar area (this location is where the fulcrum is). The front of the firearm tilts upward while the rear tilts downward. The muscles and tendons in the wrists cannot control all of this negative and unwanted angular momentum causing the wrists and hands to move upward (aka "Breaking the wrist").
Typical shooters experience somewhere between 14 to 22 degrees of angular rotation every shot fired due to body size, grip technique, hand and wrist strength, body mechanics, stance, breathing, etc. The shooter has to employ many crucial mechanics and technique principles at the same time to shoot successive rounds to be moderately to extremely accurate. Typical shooters must wait for the firearm to return to the plane it was fired from and acquire the target again and readjust the sights to target. As anyone shoots faster, inaccuracy usually is a proportionally inverse result. Those who shoot really fast must must wait to shoot in the "dwell cycle" of the firearm and employ a course targeting tactic. Some shooters are able to use alternative hand placement/grip techniques on the firearm to further improve some additional recoil management with side effects to those choices. Keeping both palms firmly on the grips and wrists closest together ultimately yields the best results with the least negative consequences for most shooters.
The Odin Armory Thumb Rest is a 55 degree forward angled thumb rest that replaces the factory takedown lever in just seconds and is located near the breech lock area ultimately mitigating an overwhelming majority of the negative recoil effects. If you hold your left hand up vertically (like you are reaching for a cup), your thumb to forefinger angle measurement is at or near 55 degrees. As you clasp the Sig P320 firearm with the Odin Armory Thumb Rest installed, your offhand thumb will comfortably and naturally land on the thumb rest. As you drive the firearm outward, your off hand thumb will naturally start to apply more and more pressure to the thumb rest the further the firearm is driven out from the chest. We call this "Loading up the thumb". Because of the 55 degree forward angle of the thumb rest, you are now using this tremendous pressure (approx. 100 Newtons)from the loaded thumb and pressing forward on the takedown lever area inside of the firearm just forward of the fulcrum point.
With the Odin Armory Thumb Rest installed, as soon as the cartridge is fired and the firearm starts the recoil process, your thumb with all of its power pressing forward on the thumb rest immediately interrupts an overwhelming majority of the angular rotation at the fulcrum ultimately resulting is less recoil experienced by the shooter. With the recoil resistance of the thumb rest, most of the recoil never reaches to the wrist to start the "breaking" process.
Our customers typically experience 4-6 degrees of recoil with the part versus 14-22 degrees without the part. You do the math and you can see that our product mitigates the most recoil of any thumb rest on the market for Sig P320s. Less recoil results in:
Faster target tracking/acquisition
Faster follow-up shots
More time on target
Minimized Sight Drift

I've used both the GoGun and Armory Craft thumb rests and neither one feels as good as yours. Your thumb stop provides a perfect index AND leverage.
I received my thumb rest. I installed it this morning. The fit and finish look awesome.
This is like cheating, Shooting is supposed to be hard and this part makes it too easy. I am a loss for words. I have never shot this well in my life.
I was really amazed how great I was able to shoot this so accurately.
I was not prepared for what this part could do. Everybody needs this part.
My groups are amazing. This part is a complete game changer, I love the quality, fitment, texture, and angle. Good job!
Love the thumb rest, gives me more control!!
To me the difference between the Align Tactical and the Odin Armory is like a Ford Pinto versus a Bugatti Chiron in a race. Both will finish but the Odin does it so much more efficiently and comfortably.
Received your thumb assist last night, really secure packaging, anyway installed it on my TXG receiver, and what a difference! You knocked it out of the park with this. All who tried it loved it, now the CZ Shadow shooters want one for their pistols. Good Work.
Anyone who has a P320 needs this part. I am in love with everything it does for me. It looks really big sitting on the gun but the benefits are stellar! Wow, just wow! Thank you for making this part, everyone who has tried it goes crazy. The thumb rest is extremely well made and intuitive to use.
The only thing I changed prior to that match was my take down lever to Odin Armory Thumb Rest. Odin Armory’s Thumb Rests assistance allowed to grip the gun tighter to fight recoil. I installed the thumb rest right before the match and ran with it... I was able to hit numerous, insane personal bests (100+% runs) in major and local matches. I took the leap of faith, and haven't looked back, it's a great product, great person behind it too.
The ODIN ARMORY P320 thumb rest is a game changer. If you don’t have one, get one. If you already use one, enjoy the great product. Heads and tails above the competition. Outstanding thumb rest!!!
