They make your rifle look like the fucking toy guns I played with as a little kid.
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.
I recently put one on my m4. Ive found that i can get on a target alot faster with one then w/o
-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
I don't use rails anymore or fwd grips, I like them simple.
Control, pure and simple.
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.
YHM makes one, never seen it though. http://www.odspec.com/AR15/yhm.html
I don't practice clearing rooms when I go to the range.
yeah... i dont know about that one...
Go synthetic and get a picatinny rail?
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.
You need one of these
Krebs has some neat stuff for the AK now.
Course you could go for the full version too.
And then there is the 12ga Saiga done up properly.
