What rail mounted grips have users been happy with? There seem to be so many. What are the advantages of a pistol style grip versus a straight grip?

I use a foldable grip sold by Bushmaster. I like it because it is secured with an Allen screw rather than a friction nipple (like the KAC-type grips). This is particularly useful on forearm units with rails that are relieved in the center. I also prefer the cylindrical grips because they are not directional; they allow the user to adopt a grip with a neutral hand/wrist position. The pistol-type grips, however, require the user to break his wrist in order to maintain the proper hand position.

Being a KAC kinda guy, I use the KAC vert grip. If you envision the position of your hands when you shoulder your rifle, you'll see a "pistol grip" for the rear makes sense. However, for the front, it is more ergonomic to have a strait grip or if you think of it it would be actually be more comfortable if you were to reverse the grip and have it pointing forward. Hmm. I think I should patent that idea.[:D]

KAc might be cool, the new GG&G might have a cute little battery compartment, but the TangoDown forward grip is the grip that beats all grips. check MM's post above for the link.

[url=www.advanced-armament.com]Advanced Armament[/url] I have a rail and foregrip set from them...highly recommended...great price too. The grip is just like the Knights grip, only a tad bigger, not much. I had a Knights, sold it and paid for the rail and grip set. No problems at all....

Advanced Armament I went over to advanced Armament in Lilburn GA yesterday and picked up a rail and a grip for $45. The grip looks like the KAC, but is .500 longer. I attached it to my carbine handguard it works fine. Great deal. Enjoyed meeting those guys, too.

Storing batteries comes in handy in GG&G's Grip. I haven't had any problems with it.

If the tango down has enough room for a bolt assembly, what and how many batteries can you store in them?

I use this one: [url=www.sogarmory.com/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=101452]SOG Foregrip [/url] Got a nice rubbery feel to it, like a Cold Steel knife handle.
