    DIY Carbon Fiber Foregrip

    If you’re like me and dislike how skinny all the current carbon fiber foregrip options are, then I invite you to make your own.

    This works perfectly with any of the old RT/RT Pro and currently offered AGD foregrips. The outer diameter of the foregrip shaft is the same as the inner diameter of this carbon fiber tubing (currently on sale). Mine is a tight enough fit that nothing else is required, but if you want a little added security you can either add the tiniest bit of adhesive on the inside of the carbon fiber tubing or use a bolt and washer in the bottom of the foregrip to hold it in.

    Cut the carbon fiber tube to 3” then enjoy.

    Do you need special tools to cut carbon fiber?

    Just a fine toothed blade for a saw, jigsaw or Dremel. I just had them cut it so I knew it would turn out right.

    Hey, would you mind posting a picture of the bottom of the job?

    So you're saying you had them custom cut to 3" dead?

    Yes, 3” even. With that, there is about 1/16” overhang, which is not an issue for me as I plan to chop off about 80% of the aluminum handle that goes inside the carbon fiber tube for a little more weight savings.

    What cut length tolerances did you use for your piece and is that a sanded finish or the standard finish?

    Thanks
    Mike
