I was wondering ?  Does using a vertical foregrip cause problems down the road with the barrel or gas system?   Anyone have problems?

Just wondering

have not had one problem with foregrip to this point. Foregrip dont touch barrel or gas tube.

Just float the barrel and use a VFG...nothing to worry about.

Love the Tangodown Vert grip. Just had to put it on with a hammer, then left it on. Seems to shrink a little out of the mold.

What are the advantages to a FF? Strength?

No matter what pressure you put on the tube it doesn't effect the point of impact for the barrel.

If you use a VFG(or sling) w.o a FF and apply pressure to it you will shift the point of impact for the round.

With the FF tube - as long as the optic is on the receiver you can put all the pressure you want on the sling and/or VFG and you won't change the point of impact.

I might add that with a Government profile barrel, the change in point of impact will be almost unnoticeable.

I have shot with a tight sling on standard hadguards for a long time with no problems.

Any situation where you are using a VPG, you won't notice the difference. You would rip the handguards off before you applied enough force to throw the impact off.

Depends on the distance you are shooting.  I zeroed my A2 (with Govt profile barrel) at 200y with the rifle just resting on my hand.  When I 'slung up' with a match sling it shifted the point of impact by 8" or so there was change in both elevation AND windage.

Now a CQB distances I'll agree the change won't matter a whit.
