Anyone know where I can find a good foregrip to install in my AR15 carbine?

Like the look and feel of the grip; I can pull it this way tighter to the shoulder.

Thanks!

Do you have a mounting rail, or are you planning to mount it directly to the barrel?

Whichever works best; please recommend!

Thanks!

Check out Advanced Armament (not sure of the link)
They should have everything you need to get started.

Bushmaster offers one that will mount directly to the barrel. It is sturdy and relatively inexpensive. Depending on where you want your foregrip, you may need to modify the unit itself as well as your lower front handguard.

However, most foregrips are mounted via a mounting rail. They can range from a $15 mini-rail that bolts to the lower front handguard to high dollar rail systems (RIS/RAS, ARMS #45, FIRSH, C-More etc.) that give you almost infinite modularity.

Basically, it's like the old Car Racer adage "Speed costs, how fast do you want to go?"

PS. I've even seen some dorks bolt up their drill's side handle to their gun and call it a forward grip...

Knight's makes one. GG&G also has one now. I found one at SOGARMORY.COM as well.

Forgive me for mooching your post, but I have a question for y'all while I'm at it. Anyone know if the Knight's vertical foregrip is hollow and can be used for storage?. Is it plastic or aluminum?

Falcon Industries (Ergo Grip) has a couple of Foregrips also. Someone mentioned previously that these do have a storage area.
The KAC foregrip is not hollow and is plastic/polymer. You use the base to tighten the grip down to the rail by a corkscrew arrangement.

No problem. DSA has one also.

Who has aluminum ones anymore? Most seem to be plastic and only one aware of now id MSTN's alluminum one they carry,but at 99.00 thats way to much for me!

Think someone mentioned the Hesse may be all aluminum.

Fobus, makes a plastic grip that slips on a standard rail.

I know [url]www.sogarmory.com[/url] has aluminum ones. They are similar to the Knight's in that they tighten to the rail via a shaft that threads up into the grip body(i.e. there is no room for storage). They are about $50 and appeared to be of excellent quality when I checked them out at a gun show awhile back.

Curious, why is a plastic foregrip 'junk' when Your handguards, pistol grip and buttstock are plastic? The KAC foregrip (the one in the SOPMOD package) is plastic IIRC. Plastic is lighter, won't 'stick' to your hands when its really cold, and doesn't transmit the heat that aluminum would. The aluminum may - may - be more durable. But I'd rather my $35 pistol grip be damaged by a blow than damage the $200-$400 free float tube unit that its attached to.
