I have a vertical grip on my M4gery, I have it placed way out front, I have long arms.

Where do you folks place yours, front or back?

Locking tabs on TD are at B18 and B20.

3rd notch up back closer to the lower

Mine is centered on the quad rail. This seems like the best place for me.

Close to the receiver.

Close to the lower suits me.

Placing it up front allows for more muzzle control, and more accurate shots.

B19 and B21 here

i like mine closer towards the mag well as well.
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 8:49:52 AM EDT
Just forward of middle of handguards...
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 9:23:46 AM EDT
No more than a couple of inches from the mag well. The closer the better.

KAC grip at B18 on the RAS.

In my "stuff box"

You put it at the position where your weak arm's forearm and uppper arm make a 90 degree bend at the elbow. That's what SD explained to me...

in my parts box. I've been using the magwell alot lately
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 11:18:02 AM EDT
I prefer mine close to the lower, but not so close that I can not fully open the rifle for cleaning.

Close to the magwell, I ran without fvg for a while but I like it better more comfy.
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 11:57:09 AM EDT
I have used just the mag well

Ive been thinking of getting one for the last 5 years!
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 12:07:36 PM EDT
I'm 6'2" and I prefer the vert. grip close to the magwell. I like to have my arms tucked in tight when I'm aiming the rifle. My MagPul M93 is only extended to the 3rd. notch.

I don't see how guys with their grip WAY out on the handguard can aim the rifle for any length of time without experiencing fatigue in their support arm. I don't care how much muscle you have in your arm, fatigue will evntually set in if you're supporting weight with your arm extended.
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 12:45:14 PM EDT
Mine's about mid way, slightly toward the magwell.
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 1:32:46 PM EDT
Initially I used a 2 rib panel closest to the mag well, then the vfg. All have been changed to near the mag well.
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 1:34:18 PM EDT
Wherever I want it.
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 2:26:35 PM EDT
I have a KAC two rib spacer between the magwell and my grip on my RAS.

+1 to all the above.

Far enough foreward to clear the bottom of the lower, when I break it open to reload.

It's funny you say that because I was originally wanting mine at B19 and 21, but the TD was such a pain in the ass to get as far as I did. So I temporarily gave up and then decided I liked it where it was.
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 4:21:39 PM EDT
Mine's just aft of midway down the rail--I think. Hell, I didn't pay a whole lot of attention when I put it on. I just placed it where it felt most comfortable, and that's where you should put yours.

B19 positions on both my M4gery and middy carbines with KAC M4 RAS and LaRue 9.0 rails.

Whatever the best location that works for you, that's the beauty of the rail system.
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 8:29:22 PM EDT


Not so great for holding the weapon at ready long-term; but very effective at driving the weapon when you need fast shooting while moving. If I have to hold a ready position a long time, I grab the magwell and rest my elbows on the top of my mags.

Close in, when I had one.

No choice for "other".

Almost halfway out, closer to the lower.

I'm 6'8" and very long arms. Having the VG near the mag well is uncomfortable for me. Having it out front also leaves room for my hand in a normal rest position on the lower handgurad.

I mounted it in various positions untill I found the position were it felt comfortable and were it balanced the rifle.

Link Posted: 2/19/2006 5:31:42 AM EDT

I had mine as close to the mag well as I could get it and finally decided to remove it and just use the magwell.

I have been taught to place mine out forward, just barely behind the gas block on a carbine gas system. This gives the most control over the weapons recoil and allows for better second shot placement. Actually I now reach out this far wether I'm using a vert grip or not. This position is not as comfortable as placing it back or holding onto the magwell but it does offer more control. You just have to get used to it. Ask yourself this question; if I were grapping a pressurized hose, what position would give me the best control over the hose? Right at the end or a twelve inches or more back? It’s a no brainier.

Link Posted: 2/19/2006 4:32:31 PM EDT
close in, easier on the arms

I switched from having it right near the magwell to having the front edge out a full rail-panel's length, and the difference was night and day. The carbine didn't feel near as heavy, I didn't have to put the stock as far out for a comfortable shooting stance, and it points better. Best thing I've done to it yet.

You'd think it would wear on your arms more, but shortening the length of pull (and therefore the rifle) counters that. Also, when shooting prone now I can use my support hand like I'm used to using it on an AR with regular handguards.

How about here.

What's wrong? Why ya looking at me funny?

I placed mine on the EE.
