    just got them back:-) 15 degree fore grips

    I have a buddy at work that dabbles at making stuff.he has a few pieces of milling equipment at his home so I asked if I brought him some 1 inch aluminum rod if he could try to make me a fore grip or 2.I let him take a rail and a vertical adapter with a gas through to see what he could come up with.this is what I got for my 6.77$ worth of aluminum rod,4 different pieces at 15 degrees that actually fit really nice.what do you guys think?



    Should I polish them or anno or hydro dip them?:-)

    A comment like it is a pretty good indicator of how much work it was.

    At the very least you should buy him a 12 pack of his favorite beer.

    Pretty cool BTW...

    I ordered a 2 foot piece of solid 1 inch aluminum rod delivered to my place of work from the same company that delivers our steel for our weilder.that may have been why it was soo cheap.the grips are 5 inches long I think.I'm gonna have to build a couple more mags to put them all on.:-)

    I really like them all but if I gotta pick a favorite, then it would be the far right one followed by the one on the far left.:-)

    Nice! Your friend definitely deserves some beer. Best part is you get to build 4 new mags.
