First off I want to thank everyone for understanding our position on minimizing the release of info on NEW and upcoming products. We’ve been working like mad men on several new products while publicly flying under the radar about their development. During the coming weeks leading into SHOT Show, Magpul will be releasing several NEW products that have been under development over the past several months. In addition to these there will be several additional NEW products that will be announced at SHOT Show in January.

So, the first of many products to be announced I give you the………

AFG (Angled ForeGrip)

• Retail price $34.95

• Available colors Black, Flat Dark Earth, OD Green and Foliage Green

• Timeline, available in mid December



The AFG falls into the category of “Theory Based" products. Simply put, these products are designed to enhance weapon performance and user interface beyond what is currently available. Because these products do not simply replace an existing weapon component, there is an understanding with Theory Based Products that simple plug and play doesn’t apply. They require education by way of instructions, training, and familiarization with the product to become proficient, and only then will the benefits be realized. In addition to the AFG, other products in this category are the B.A.D. Lever, MS2, and ASAP.

The primary difference between the AFG and standard vertical foregrips is weapon controllability. This is a direct result of hand position, grip style and body mechanics. Below is a detailed description of the Theory behind the AFG.


















Okay, got our 30. Thanks!

In an effort to receive feedback from the general population on the AFG Magpul would like to offer a T&E AFG to the first 30 posters in this thread. All we ask for in return is that you install the AFG, give it a shot and post pics and opinions on the AFG in the forum. If you’re one of the first 30 posters in this thread and are interested in receiving a free sample and are willing to report on your thoughts send an email to ============= containing the following;

•Actual name
•Address to ship
•Screen name
•email address
•phone number

If the above info is not sent you're name will be removed from the list and the next runner up will have a lucky day. VFG's will be shipping to the participants with in two weeks.


Be warned, if we send you an AFG and you do not post your opinion and pics I will create a voodoo doll and smash it with a pillow.

As a side note, the AFG is the first forward grip we’ve seen that may be used on an AK and not interfere with mag changes due to the low profile. I tried this out at the range the other day with my AK and it was fantastic! AK guys are going to dig this.

Edit.........


In light of several comments floating around the web on different forums reference the AFG I'm tossing the below up in a few places.


Clarification;

Let me make it perfectly clear. Our intent is not to replace your VFG with an AFG. Our intent is to bring a new concept to market, push the boundaries of design and fill a void in the forward grip market. Some might argue that we're creating the "void" and this is all a marketing hype product. Have we ever done that with any product? We will continue to stand by our products and the theories behind them.

Fan Boys;

We have fan boys and hey, hats off, we love them. But don't ever think we build products for the FB's. They want the best products money can buy just like Mil, LE, casual shooters and competition shooters. Can you blame them? We build real world, high quality, boundary pushing kit period. No hype, no BS.


Okay back to my lair where the rest of my secret squirrel marketing team is hard at work on the next gimmick.....mmmuuuhhahahahahaha
We are not releasing any information on products that may or may not be in the works. We're always looking for new ways to improve on existing products and exploring boundaries of new ideas. Thanks.
