  • Vertical Grip Shopping

    I’m now shopping around for a vertical grip for my patrol rifle. Is this something I should splurge on or is it ok to buy a cheapo? I just want something sturdy and reliable.

    I have a tango down vertical grip which I like. It was a pain in the *** to put on and I'll prolly never take it off. If I were to do it again I like LaRue's grip as it will come on & off easier and I like the adjustability options for its height & style.

      Do you have a rail for attachment? If not you will need to get one that can attach to a standard M4 type handguards, or you will need to add a rail piece to add to the standard handguards. In any event, you do not need to go top of the line with quick detach capability, but do not go cheap either. I hate the thought of going cheap with anything that will be used on a duty rifle.

      I use the Tango Down QD stubby vert grips. I prefer a short foregrip as I really don't use it as a grip. Also the above linked LaRue FUG is an excellent grip but also on the top end. You will also need to decide if you prefer metal or polymer.

        Ya I did not need the detach capability so I ended up going with the one Daniel Defense offers. Not the most expensive, but not a cheapo.

          I bought mine from Bushmaster. What I like is it is long for plenty of gripping surface, and it folds. When prone on an upfacing hill the AR rests on the folded grip, and is nice. Also when I put it in it's bag at the end of the week it fits it the bag easier...

          I forgot the name, but it cost about $70.00. Something to think about.

            Is this what you're talking about?

                I like KAC. Knights Armament makes alot things I like so I just stick with them.

                  I will probably go with the LaRue or TD shorty when I get the SBR done (if I ever get it done).

                  With VFG's cheap is good as well. If you ever whack it real hard on a doorjamb, etc. I would rather shear off the VFG than tear up the rail system (which may have a sighting system attached).
