    for close quarters i'd prefer a vertical grip but at a distance i'd use the stock foregrips.

    Function over form. If it helps you shoot better, who gives a fuck what it looks like.

    -Positions the wrist in a more natural and stronger position (thus more comfortable, IMO)
    -Better retention if someone grabs your barrel
    -Better control under rapid/auto fire
    -Space blasters are The New Hotness

    it does make it a whole hell of a lot easier to get a target sighted, especially if our using an electronic sight

    To me the veritcal foregrip feels akward when i shoulder the rifle correctly. I can see the benefits of it in tight quarters. To each their own i suppose.

    Does anyone make one that folds flat against the forestock? if so I think that would be ideal.

    Go synthetic and get a picatinny rail? :dunno:

    I imagine you could add a rail to the bottom of a wood one, also.

    vertical grip + eotech or aimpoint = VERY fast on target.

    it also pust you into something close to a natural boxing stance, which is very good for the intended purpose of a carbine.
