Here's an email I recieved from Jeff at TD...[:D] Thank you for contacting us. We are indeed releasing our Vertical BATTLEGRIP tm in Aug. for military sales comittments and in Sept for civilian sales. We are not releasing images until Aug to the public. Purchase price (retail) is about $60.00 which is a steal considering what you get: Dual locking bar design will not fail at keeping the grip at the address you select, even under severe muzzle impact. Molded-in dovetailed pressure switch pocket holds switch securely without velcro or glue, you can insert supplied filler panel when switch is not in use. Internal cavity is waterproof to 200 feet and can store a spare bolt assy or batteries, etc. Cap cannot be lost. Entire grip is molded of ultra-high impact resin that will outlast aluminum products with no corrosion or heat conducting problems. Crane NSWC is receiving first shipment for Special Forces use. Hope this satisfies your curiosity for now. This will be the superior vertical fore grip at any price. Sincerely, Jeffrey M. Cahill TangoDown LLC

I should have a picture shortly. They get them in for post production finish, and then ship them to me, it will be still a few more days. trust me, i will have a picture up for you in short time. BTW, just in case the the suspense is not getting to you, I am going to check out their new rail panels which will fit and lock into probably every darn rail interface handguiard on the market and it will also have a tape switch slot like the front grip. From the design drawing, this is one bad ass panel, so you guys with Firsh, up coming POF rail, C-more, or Bushmaster, you will have a KAC looking panel locking into your handguard in the near future.

Will the panels with tape switch slot fit the good old RAS also? Yes please!

Yes sir. It will and should fit and securely lock into any and all rail system on the market.

*giddy* Happen to know anything about pricing on the panels that you can divulge to us, SMGLee?
Link Posted: 8/7/2003 7:35:58 AM EDT
Waiting with anticipation!!!
Link Posted: 8/7/2003 7:41:52 AM EDT
the rail panels may still need some final tweaking - i'm getting together with jeff to look at the SLA models in the next couple of days. they won't be available when the vertical is released, but should follow soon after. you should be seeing pics of the vertical sometime next week - either on chen's wood floor or my familiar OD poncho liner [:)] after the inital snapshots, i'll be working on the photographs for the TD website and press releases. cheers, MM
