Magpul AFG (Angled Fore Grip) Rail-Mounted Forward Grip - Dark Earth
Unlike conventional vertical fore-grips, the Magpul AFG-1 (Angled Fore-Grip) takes into account natural body mechanics and provides a comfortable and stable user interface that reduces fatigue and allows for more precise weapon control. By positioning the shooter's hand high on the centerline of the bore, the AFG-1 helps mitigate recoil and control the weapon, facilitating faster, more accurate follow-up shots. Color:

Low-profile forward grip/hand stop takes advantage of natural body mechanics to give the shooter more precise control, faster pointing, and less operator fatigue. The Magpul AFG™ (Angled Fore-Grip) positions the support hand close to the centerline of the bore for maximum recoil control to aid in fast, accurate follow-up shots. Provides a consistent reference point for finding the correct hand position quickly when mounting the weapon under stress.
The natural, ergonomic hand position with the palm facing up results in better blood flow than the “clenched fist” stance often used with vertical grips that leads to fatigue and loss of sensation during long periods in the ready position. Improves on the “thumb break” hold often used with standard vertical grips by allowing the thumb to rest comfortably alongside the top rail, pointing forward, with the rest of the hand in full contact with the forend. Heavy-duty reinforced molded polymer construction stands up to the hard knocks of tactical operations, and deep, molded-in grooves help you maintain a firm grip even with wet hands.
Slides over any Picatinny-style rail and locks securely in place with a hardened steel crossbolt. The AFG may be installed on tactical shotguns and other rifles with railed forends; won’t interfere with insertion and removal of magazines on AK-47s
"I got this cause I generally like the stability and accuracy from angled grips, and I was not disappointed. I just got into airsoft because of some friends. Until recently I would shoot my real SIG 556 SWAT and I use an angled grip. I was pleasantly superuser to find out that when I put this on my SIG 551 Long Barrel SWAT model airsoft that it felt even better than the one on my real SIG. Helps with stability and accuracy when shooting at longer ranges.
2. Can take out middle finger stop and replace it with a flat plate
3. Large enough to fit any hand but small enough to not be in the way
4. Very solid and didn't get loose
5. Hand stop at the end to prevent hand from slipping off
1. Doesn't come with proper screw to take it apart completely, just to remove the middle bolt to slide and lock it onto the rail. Can be dealt with by going to a local gun range and having them take it apart for you if you don't have the tools like I did.
2. Screws hard to remove when screwed in (more of a plus after on though)
None of those cons affect its performance though.
"I really like the Magpul afg, it gives you really good weapon control. I would recommend for anyone looking for a grip for a CQB gun or a rifle with a short RIS.
"This grip may be pricey, but very good for a CQB or short railed gun.
