    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)

    Looks deep. How does it feel?

    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?

    Everyone will have their preferences, but of the 5 people I had try it out, they all liked it.

    You price is reasonable and a good bargain. Are these available in just Black for this price, or will you be offering other colors?
    I would like some color on my rifle, but nobody makes add-on components in Deep Red/Maroon. I know, I'm asking too much.

    First run will be black, later maybe flat dark earth.

    I like the color idea, but the problem is that the minimal order for a color batch is 5000 units... so 5000 people have to want a maroon grip on their rifle as well lol.

    Looks good! I like that it doesn't take up too much rail.

    It would be cool if you can fit bipod legs inside the gripe

    Here's a suggestion leave it like it is but make it universal so you can flip it and have the long handle sticking down or the shorter end sticking down with the longer part forward . Could make a plastic plug to fill one of the holes. Now you have 2 products in one
