Thread: Umbrella handle adapter

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Umbrella handle adapter

    I'm not to keep on most of the fore grips out there. Very little variety (mostly tube variants). I was looking at my umbrella today and thought "man, I'd really like to hack this handle off and make a fore grip out of it". Did a quick image search for umbrella handles and discovered tons that would make awesome grips:

    So yeah, if somebody could make some kind of clamping (or any other method you can think of) umbrella handle adapter for Mags, I would buy a couple.

    Was looking to just use the one off my $14 umbrella, but now that I see all the options, my imagination is running wild. Maybe on of those duck heads!

    I was thinking about modding a vertical bottle adapter. But if I do the work myself it will look like what it is (a hack job).

    I'd suggest to do away with the vertical ASA and tap/screw into the handle direstly. If there's space, use two screws to prevent misalignment and unscrewing during play.

    I'll like to install this one to hold my beer.

    I'm liking this idea. So many possibilities using cane, umbrella, or knife/sword handles.

    its your gun, so its your choice. its a personal choice, so find something you like and go for it. that is why some people like 15* and some don't, so some people like Z or Y frames and others like 90's.

    I thought about drilling and tapping the handle, but it's hollow. I imagine most umbrella handles are the same in that regard.

    You can filled the handle with some metal filled bondo which I believe can be drilled and tapped. Even better you can embed a couple of threaded inserts before the stuff sets up.

    Use the screw and rail adaptor from a deadly wind carbon fiber grip on that hollow handle

    You can cover an AGD bike grip with all sorts of stuff. Gas thru if you want too.
