    Nice rifle! Can you move the angled grip all the way back on the rail and snap a pic? I'm curious as to what that looks like.

    So how do you like the angled? Big difference over just grabbing the rail?

    I never liked just holding onto the front handguard...I was always more stable with my hand on the magwell. The AFG has a very natural, comfortable feel to it, and I can always go to the magwell if I choose to. I'm taking it to the range this weekend, so that'll be the true test of how I like it.

    Once you practice with your hand far forward it actually turns out to be more stable. I am more 'comfortable' holding the magwell, but it doesn't work as well for managing recoil.

    I run a vfg as far forward as I can and just use it as a handstop. Any further forward and I'd be holding on to the front site base :)

    Nice rifle by the way. I'm digging the AFG. I might have to run one on my CMMG LEPII that I pick up this Friday.
