Why is it that I've spent a fortune on AR's/optics/etc but can't bring myself to pay $62 + shipping for a TangoDown VFG? I guess it's just the principle...

Failure to commit to a $62.00 piece of plastic. I'm still struggling with the same issue.

I understand your dilemma also. They are very pricey but are very nice.

Send a C&R or sales tax license to Brownells, it will save you some money ($10-15) and you might not have so much trouble making the purchase.



Ya know, I've got a Brownell's dealer account. Why didn't I think of that! Thanks.

You're only addressing half the dillema... Unless you're "only going to get one".

Oh sure, VFGs are removable so one can be swapped amongst several different ARs but, I seem to be stuck on the thought that each rail deserves a dedicated VFG... So far the count is 2 TG VFG + one Knights broomstick.

I'm in the exact same boat. I just can't bring myself to spend more than 30 bucks or so for a VFG.

I had the same problem wanting a MagPul MIAD grip. But once I finally bit the bullet price no longer mattered.

Just do it!!!

Big plus one. I'm done settling for something a little cheaper.

I have 3 TD grips now.

While we are on this subject- what about the price of plastic rail covers?

Those are rediculous as well.

I switched to buying aluminum VFG after breaking a few. My unit also went and bought aluminum. They can be had for $40 or less. Much more durable. If weight is your issue: This is a man's game.

It's a good one. For the most part I settled for the cheap in college cause I had to. It was hard to break out of that mind set. I'll be 30 this summer so it only took 7 years.

Where? I've been looking too. I'm sorry, I'm with you guys, the $20 bucks I save can go towards ammo! Seriously, were the discounted ones used or am I missing out on a deal somewhere? Help out a fellow cheapskate! IM me in case there are other cheapskates watching!
Link Posted: 3/23/2006 7:10:09 AM EDT
Sheesh, that was the hardest $58 dollars (shipping incl) I've parted with in my life! Oh well, it'll be here soon. Aren't you fellow big spenders proud of me?
