    Ok, so maybe not doom. But i would like this thread to cover the gamut of info on forward grips I.E. Favortie grip makers, materials, dealers. If this works this thread should turn out pretty informative.

    I'm going to add a forward grip to my AR.

    But there are a lot of makers out there to choose from.

    There are also a lot of materials to choose that these grips are made from.

    So i'm looking for some input on some good manufacturers.

    These are my personal choices so far.

    http://www.olyarms.com/?page=m3_FIRSH_accessories

    http://www.aceltdusa.com/ar15.htm#ARP

    None of these are very expensive.

    I've looked at some from joeken arms and from sportsmans guide but can't seem to find who makes them so to me they are of questionable quality

    Hense recomendation of some good dealers.

    Magazine as forward grip

    Since I shoot an M14S, I just use my magazine as a "forward grip". It may not be very "cool" but it works.

    I spent big money on a forward grip, storage for batteries, all that cool stuff.

    Then I took a carbine class.

    The grip was gone in the first hour and has not been back on the gun since.

    But, since we're talking about them, I was using the GGG grip with their
    UFIR rail, which mounts under a standard foregrip.

    It was a very nice setup and I recommend it to anyone that feels like they need a fore grip.

    I really like the Tango Down fore grip, though the only other one I have really tried has been a Dieter, which doesn't seem as great as it is made out to be by some.

    I'd look at the Knights foregrip. We have them as part of of SOPMOD M-4s so that's what I use on my own personal M-4gery. Nothing like being able to train in your off time with an identical weapon (minus the go-fast parts and the slightly longer barrel) as the weapon you're going to take to war. :)

    That is a really interesting set up.

    I wonder about the legalities of such a rig.

    It looks a little delicate too, like the pistol might break off if the whole set up was dropped.

    Come on,it's the latest and greatest in Tinker Toy Tinsel.At least until Starbucks releases their Tactical rail/frappucino maker.

    Walking Arsenal,don't take it as an insult to you,I just happened across this pic and your thread was just the perfect platform to use it.By the way though this setup is sold only to military and law enforcement.Someone pointed out that the pistol may be considered a short barrel rifle in this configuration.I don't know about that but ith our friendly BATF anything is possible.

    It's just composite plastic, nothing special. It slides on the rail and screws from the bottom. Go to www.tapco.com to take a look at it, actually maybe I paid $15 for the thing, don't remember:scrutiny: . I use a Pentagon light mounted under the barrel so with the grip I can use my left hand middle finger around the grip to nudge the "momentary switch" on the light. Pretty tactical huh!:neener:

    Tango Down. Solid and useful. I put one on my FAL to assist with a tac light.

    Ooh, ooh! Does the $14 one fit onto the rail of any pistol you have?

    For sheer oddness, that's a pic I'd like to see.

    Wait, would that violate some sort of law, or was that just under the AWB?
