Default Magpul AFG2

Ordered the magpul afg2 for my ar and itll be here sometime tomorrow and i cant wait to see how the weapon handles with it attached. I punched in the tracking number and its in transit in champaine ill right now. Anyone else use the afg? How do u like it? I handled a doublestar m4 at a gunshow with one attached and loved it.

I had one on my ARs and liked them but am currently running w/ no forgrip except the stubby on my DD which I use as a hand stop. I need to break down and anti up for a couple Gear Sector hand stops.

I have the AFG on my rifle. I like it alot since when I used to use a vertical grip, I would end up gripping the forend the same way as the AFG is used.
It would be a hair more comfortable if it were a middy, but with my carbine it does work fine.

Put them on two of my AR's and discovered I prefer to use them without the finder notch.

Nice kit bushman, love the stock too. Is it a magpul? I looked into getting one but my rifle is a full length A2 and not sure an adjustable stock will work that great on mine. Plus id have to change out the whole rear end.

It's a Magpul ACS. It has a battery compartment in each cheeck piece. AA or CR123's.
I've shot about 1K rounds with the AFG. It works well with my grip. I like to have my thumb wrapped around the forend, which was kind of funky using a conventional vertical grip. My middle and ring finger ended up getting crammed in the grip/forend junction spot. With the AFG all my fingers have a solid spot to go everytime.
