Couldn't agree more, the MOUNT-N-SLOT is a great solution and only about $15.

Try a thumb over grip on the MOE before ordering the AFG. You might decide you like the HG w/o the AFG.

I started out w/ AFGs and now am back to no grip. There seems to me more control over the weapon w/ the thumb over grip.

I've also found that the only MOE long enough to get a proper hold is the rifle length version. I feel cramped using the other 2 lengths and even more so when using a AFG on them.

Plus it's added weight.

Of course YMMV.

Welp... I bought the angled dangle thang from my LGS already. I can't wait to try it because I just worked up the sack to buy it. I don't expect it to be a final shooting solution. Damn, I just can't stay away from the LGS.

Thumb over grip? Can I assume that's as simple as it sounds?

Sling dynamics..Hmmm, Linda. I'm eyeballing that three point. I like the sound of those.

This was the best thing I could find at the moment. For us w/o IR lasers the fingers actually wrap around the rail/handguard. The thumb ends up on top of the rail pointing forward toward the target.

I've been through all sorts of changes and this is the one I prefer. It really helps stabalize the weapon.

It did feel funny as heck for a while though.
