    Well slap me with an Oakley assault glove, and put on my $200 TAD gear hoodie! :bigthumb:

    New "angled foregrip" from Magpul for $35. I'm currently running a TD stubby, i don't see how it could get any more comfortable though.

    As i currently use my stubby, I already think it's pretty ergonomic?

    I honestly don't have an opinion on that....

    Looks interesting, but I had no problem with my $5 cut down vertgrip.

    Mother of god. There's a hot new product if I've ever heard of one.

    THT needs to get his sweat shop in gear and make some FDE versions to sell to everyone. I know he's prolly already running full steam ahead with these things....

  7. Mother of God. I haven't seen mention of this on Barfcom yet. (at least not outside of the magpul industry forum)

    I will reserve my judgement until I can handle one at shot show. I don't see anything wrong with just using the handguard as it was intended.

    So why wouldnt you just use the handguard?
     
  12. Because Magpul makes this.
     
  13. If I were one of the Magpul guys, I'd do all sorts of weird shit and see how many people copied me and did it too.

    This definitely more directly emulates the proper weak hand grip on a pistol.

    Try doing this. Point your support hand thumb straight out in front of you, hand open.

    Now close your hand and notice the angle which your fingers are at whilst keeping your thumb on "target".

    Don't think I have one.... this was before I was into taking pictures of guns.


    I just took a bandsaw to it, cut off the bottom. Then channeled the middle, and epoxied the bottom back together to the top. Ultra low tech, but it did what I wanted to do.
