    German Sport Guns should have their K grip out by the summer.

    http://www.aimsurplus.com has accessories for the GSG-5. They have a forearm with 3 rails on it. You could attach any vertical grip to it.

    That forearm will not fit the GSG5PK.

    yes ive seen those for the gsg5 rifle but as quiet stated they will not fit the 5pk pistol, seems like they have alot of accessories for the rifle but not so much for the pistol, to new yet maybe ? and mags seem to be out of stock on every website i check, this is a great little gun though and makes for cheap high volume shooting

    A Google Shopping search for "mp5k foregrip" will find you several aftermarket versions for under $50 - they require a slight modification to fit and leave a slight gap at the rear compared to the gsg grip but it is solid and will work fine, good luck!:evil:

    Whats "aow", an why do you need a 200.00 dollar permit to put one on? I see guys with these on AR's an all kinds of stuff, I just bought one today to put on the AR...never heard any talk about a vertical foregrip being illegal....?

    "Any Other Weapon" is a category of regulated firearms under the National Firearms Act of 1934 -- the same law that required federal tax and registration of Machine Guns, Short Barreled Rifles, Short Barreled Shotguns, and Suppressors (Silencers...if you just can't resist calling them that), and Destructive Devices (grenades and such). "Any Other Weapon" is a catch-all category for such things as pen-guns, cane-guns, brief-case-guns (any gun designed not to look like a gun), SMOOTH-BORE pistols, and pistols with a forward vertical grip.

    Your vertical grip is completely legal on an AR-15 or any other rifle.

    If you buy a gun that is sold as a pistol (like the pistol version of a GSG, or the pistol versions of AKs or ARs) and put a forward-mounted vertical grip on it you've created an unregisterd AOW.

    By the way, 99% of the entire reason that the "pistol" versions of GSGs, AR-15s, and AK-47s, etc., etc. were developed was because folks wanted to own a version that had shorter barrels than the legal 16" limit -- often as the original military version did -- and the only way to get that without registering it as a Short Barreled Rifle, was to build it on a receiver registered as a pistol and to never NEVER attach a butt-stock.

    I have a strong feeling that the reason the railed version of the fore stock for the GSG rifle won't fit easily on the pistol version is to try and keep folks from easily making this mistake. Many, many, MANY folks don't know these laws very well and just perhaps, when Joe-New-GSG-Pistol-Owner buys one of the railed forarms, maybe he will call someone to find out why it doesn't fit his gun.

    I got mine on Ebay for $35! Its for an airsoft gun but its plenty tough and the gun doesn't kick enough to hurt it. The pin fits fine but I did have to put a homemade spacer underneath the barrel to keep it from wiggling too much. There is also a small gap as you can see but it looks so good it doesn't really bother me.

    RIZLA816, have you read this thread carefully? Is your GSG now a registered "Any Other Weapon"?

    Might not be too good an idea if that isn't the case. Sure wouldn't be posting pictures of it, either.
