    Greetings here is my new to me Bushmaster 14.5 inch carbine. This is my first FDE rifle, so forgive the brightness of the pics. Looks like I may need to adjust my lighting next time.

    Thanks, I mounted it like I do a VFG and it is a tad weird still. I will move it forward next range trip and see if that helps.

    looks great! i'd love to hear what you think about the magpul grippy doohicky as compared the the VFG. also, which of the two grips do you like better? i have the Ergo Grip like yours but i'm not real happy with it. it's too thin. GREAT looking setup you have there. both of them!

    don't worry about where your VFG is. just make it comfy for you. mine is about at the same place and i like it there after some experimenting at the range.

    I second Azzia's recommendation. Most vertical grips work best towards the front of the rifle. The less mass in front of the support hand, the easier it is to control where it goes. The problem is that since your strong hand has to be on the pistol grip, you are limited by your physiology and physical fitness as to how far forward you can grab and still be comfortable. However, the AFG really maximizes your ability to grab far forward.

    I think because so few people shoot with shot timers, few people appreciate having the grip forward. If you don't see the time improvement, you tend to just mount the grip where it is most comfortable for you, which is often further back than where it is most effective. The great thing about the AFG (for me again) is that it lets me keep a lot of the comfort while letting me control the muzzle better.

    If I didn't need to hit the button on my G2; my AFG would be partially hanging off the front of my 9" rail with the front of the AFG right underneath the gas block. That is the perfect spot (for me). However, because I still want to use the flashlight, I moved the AFG back to where it is right at the front of the 9" rail. I then shoot it with a "thumbs forward" grip with my support hand with the thumb on top of the left rail. I also like to pull back against the AFG like a handstop.

    Here is a link to a review I did of the AFG:

    Nice looking gun. is there room for an ACOG next? Next time, turn the EV (exposure) on the camera down a few notches and you'll have much better results.
