Do you grip the VFG like you would a stick or do you use it as a hand stop?

I'm pretty new to the ar platform so been experimenting quite a bit, trying a lil bit of everything in order to find what works best for me. To be honest the fore grip has been repositioned quite a few times haha. So far i've held it like a stick which worked ok but going to keep experimenting

Definitely find what works for you and run w/ it.

Have you tried not using it at all? Maybe just wrap your support hand all the way around the HG w/ thumb on top? A guy gave me this same advise a couple years ago. Id say its one of the best pieces of advise Ive received in regards to the AR.

You can also use this technique but move the VFG forward enough that it butts up against your hand. It works as a hand stop allowing a little more control and rearward pressure seating the rifle firmly in your shoulder pocket.

I'll bet. I'm looking forward to that feeling. I have all the cash I need to build an AR of my liking.
