Default New Foregrip Idea

I always liked the idea of something between a vertical foregrip and and a Magpul AFG, so I designed this to fit that role.

It seems to work well with multiple grip types and even as a large handstop.

The curved grip portion is 2.75 inches vertically from the attachment base for reference.

Looking for suggestions for improvement, opinions, comments, anything.

Pics are of the 3D model and of a really rough prototype I threw on my 10/22.
(cut out portion of the model fits a clamp-piece)

Feels like a more comfortably angled AFG. When on my AR I like to use a c-clamp grip and it facilitates that really well.

What do you mean by deep?

Without being able to try it or anything, the only thing that comes to mind is that extending the horizontal part might be Nice.

It's a good idea..one i have considered.

The issue i have with that is it already takes up 6 of the raised sections of a picatinny rail. Might be a bit long with that addition?

Looks to be good quality and simple. I'd test one out for ya and give a fair assessment. Any costs at this time?

Final production unit cost would be $20 or $25 depending on shipping costs.
That would be made out of glass-infused nylon, though, so it's rock solid.

How's the price sound?

The extra grip options might make up for the added length. Idk

Price Sounds fantastic.

I'll keep that in mind.

After gaining some experience in the injection molding process I have found that most of the grips cost the producers nowhere near what they charge for them.

Of course, there are lots of costs involved in a business, but the unit cost is minimal.

Not too wide or too tall, more like the distance from the web to the fingers might be great. Like gripping something too large. You say it is comfortable?
