i've just gotten a sweet little carbine and i wanted to put a fore-grip on it. i'm assuming that most fore-grip manufacturers make them to fit picatinny rails, right? i've never had one. so for all of you who have experience with this particular piece of equipment, please tell me, any specific brands or models i should look for? best sources? thanks in advance for all your help!!!

I'm currently awaiting the arrival of my tango down VFG. It has gotten some good reviews.

a few things to consider:

Do you want to have the ability to add a tape switch to operate a light or laser? ( i don't)

Do you want to be able to store a spare bolt or batteries in the grip?

Is weight an issue? ( it was for me)

I've been shooting lately by holding the mag well and have noticed that a typical weaver type stance doesn't work as well for me as does a stance more squared off to the target.

The two grips I use and like most are the GG&G, which has a battery compartment and is very light, and the ARMS, which is easy on/off and has a slight angle to it.

Another option:
Advanced Armament Corp sells package deals with both a vertical grip and rail, $45.

I believe their grip is a copy of the Knight's grip.
