I just got my AR-15 and can't decide on - Vertical foregrip or not vertical foregrip. That is the question. Opinions on pros and cons are appreciated.

I vote GG&G vertical

top notch in my opinion....

these are machined out of a block of cold plastic....

not molded...



PS if you decide to go with KAC, don't...

I'd suggest getting a VFG. As to the make, I'd go KAC or Tango Down.

The reason I found it necessary to get a VFG is that after spending so much time w/ my hand wrapped around the standard handguards, my wrist began to ache. It would hurt for days. It's just because of the twist while supporting the weight of my rifle/carbine and the many, many, many hours holding the damn thing.

I put a surefire 2pc Rail and TD VFG on my M4 and find it much more comfortable. Haven't had an ache in my wrist since.

I didn't like the grip much when I first got it, but since I started using a flashlight on my AR I came to like them.

IIRC, it's Knight's Armament Corp. But that could be wrong, it's just one of those things that the acronym is so very common it takes place of the proper title.

As to where to purchase the KAC, hell I don't know where is the best but I'm sure someone will be along momentarily to point you in the right direction. Most of the ones I've encountered were liberated through "creative avenues" after an extended stay in an exotic, yet dangerous, shithole.

I have not found a brand I like more than others, but having one on my AR is a great improvement. It really adds to the controlability of the weapon and, if it matters to you, weapon retention. Get a good one and you will be glad you did.
