Only rifle I have with a forward grip is a Hungarian AMD-65 AK. Otherwise I prefer none if it wasn't supposed to come with it......

none...my mamma aint that tactical.

the dieter looks a little too "out there" for me. Can't explain it.

I like the texture of the SOG, shape of the Fobus, dual locking of the battlegrip.

Allright, I have a light setup, so IxNAy on the M900. It's clearly the way to go for an all-in-one, but I'd rather have different grips and lights - sometimes I don't want teh grip at all , but might need the light.

KAC at the mid point - really cuts down my splits on controlled pairs.

I really don't care for vertical front grips. In fact, I had to spend money to get a horizontal M1 style forearm for my 27a1 Thompson because I couldnt' stand the vertical "ganster" style front grip.

I have only used the Tango Down grip, so I can only comment on it.

I tried a broomhandle type grip and it was ok, but I am using the Fobus grip now. I got a good deal on it and it is comfortable in my hand.

Out of the ones on your list I like the Battlegrip best.

Personally, I prefer the Surefire M900a.

I'm using the newer ARMS throw lever foregrip. They changed the design so that it uses a complete AR pistol grip and decreases the angle to make it more comfortable.

None here. KISS

I don't really like long grips for some reason. I do like a fatter grip like the "k-grip" style (also happens to be the one I installed on the M17s).

Haven't tried most of those even, so I won't comment on faves.

I just got the Tango down and before that I had the KAC on the M4gery.

Before I put it on, I wasnt too sure about the shape (wider side to side than front to back) and I thought it was alot more comfortable if you turned it 90 degrees from how it would be mounted....

but after I put it on I REALLY like it. I really like how it feels on the rifle, and for some reason it makes the rifle feel lighter, especially in a "low ready" position.

it is a huge pain in the ass to put on and take off tho.

I'm leaning fobus - not a fan of tape switches, I like easy on / easy off..

The forward grip is only necessary if you have a bunch of accessories mounted to your weapon. I keep mine pretty simple, so there is plenty of real-estate for my hand.

The problem with foregrips is two fold:

1. They make going prone that much more difficult
2. People put death grips on them harming their accuracy.

Number 2 is the big worry for most, as too much front grip has a tendancy to make the shooter miss. 90% of the weapon control should be from the strong hand pushing the weapon back into the shoulder. The other 10% should be up front basically steering the muzzle. Not closing your fist around the grip helps keep this ratio even during stress. Grip the foregrip about like you would position your weak hand if firing a pistol, thumb pointing to target, only not as forcefully.

If you really want one, the Surefire grip with light is the way to go. You may need a grip, so why not get one that is also a pretty good light?

I would have another light on my carbine too...
