    New Front Grip What do YOU Think???

    AO,

    We are considering this front grip for our guns. It screws into the front vertical bottle adaptor and clears the Intelliframe. We are not sure of the clear front grip and the texture, what do you think? Yes/No Comments??

    Thanks

    I think with a black grip it will be real sweet.
    I like the texture, don't like the color.

    Is it gasthru? Or regular?

    Cool! I like the grip but color choices r a must. Clear things tend to turn yellow fast. clear blue and red and stuff would be sweet. Also make a solid black

    I think it's cool. Is that textured part rubber? If so, awesome.

    I 'm not sure about the clear bit but the rest I like.

    One thing. I'm not sure if it's the length of the grip of how close it is to the frame but it almost looks like the gun is tripping over the grip.
    I was wondering if it would be possible to work up a nice grip that has a built in extender just to push it up a few inches. Not nearly as far as the KAPP extenders but just a bit. Something nice and smooth that will blend into the body rail.

    Thinking out loud again. Nice job.

    Texture = Good

    Making it clear is even better. Then people can dye it to any color they want. Make them in black and clear.

    Very nice! I guess as long as you don't use a silicone based material it won't turn yellow if a clear one is made. BTW AGD I have been meaning to ask you if you guys are using Pro Engineer or Solidworks to design your markers?

    That thing is sweet..I'm a big guy with big hands so making it a little bit longer wouldn't hurt either...and as far as what Load said but i wouldn't mind a little bit if you made something up to move the asa forward like an inch or so...just make it so it screws into the normal vertical screw..ICD did the same thing with the bushmaster (they had the same clearance problem)

    btw...you should sell a Retro Minimag like that from the factory...that look sssshhhhhwwwwweeeeeeeeeettttt!!!!

    Pretty cool idea. If the rubber part came off it would be sweet, so people can dye it to their preference. Also a non vert adapter (like the KAPP ones and stuff) would be better, I just dont like vert adapters. Is there going to be a chrome one too?

    I think the rubber looks kinda tacky on a normal mag. Just doesn't appeal to me that much, I prefer the simple black forgrip that I have now.


    Does it smell like updog in here to you?

    I like it but I think it is a little too long. I like the lenght of Skirts' RT.

    I think it looks good, except for the clear. Otherwise, I like it (not that I use a fore grip).

    I like the looks of it and bet it feels pretty good. But i'd only be interested in it if it was black and not clear.

    I like black's idea, make them black and clear so that people can dye them to whatever color they want. It looks very good and I like the texture. I would buy one

    Make black and include instructions on dying them so that people dont think that they are stuck with clear and have something to customize.

    Spiffy!

    I love it. I'd like to see the rubber part come up a little higher on the grip and I'd like a finer texture on the rubber. Definately lookin' good.

    I like load's idea of moving it up a little bit, and I'm not a big fan of the vert adapter. I think as it is, it might be a little low and get in the way of certain drops. This might be taken care of if it was moved forward a little bit though.

    I like seeing new AGD things!!!

    No sir I don't like it. The grip right up against the frame is useless for me. I need the extender.
    The style looks, for lack of a better description, wrong. Something is missing. The balance seems wrong.

    However I DO like the rest of that gun. Mini-Iframed-Retro with the Crown barrel. Cool stuff. It's the perfect Mag!
