is the 2nd generation of Magpul's hugely successful angled foregrip.
It is not intended as a replacement for the original. It is a more
compact version that uses less rail space. It is both shorter and
forward grip/hand stop takes advantage of natural body mechanics to
give the shooter more precise control, faster pointing, and less
operator fatigue. The Magpul AFG™ (Angled Fore-Grip) positions the
support hand close to the centerline of the bore for maximum recoil
control to aid in fast, accurate follow-up shots. Provides a
consistent reference point for finding the correct hand position
quickly when mounting the weapon under stress.
The natural, ergonomic hand position with the palm facing up results
in better blood flow than the “clenched fist” stance often used
with vertical grips that leads to fatigue and loss of sensation during
long periods in the ready position. Improves on the “thumb break”
hold often used with standard vertical grips by allowing the thumb to
rest comfortably alongside the top rail, pointing forward, with the
rest of the hand in full contact with the forend. Heavy-duty
reinforced molded polymer construction stands up to the hard knocks of
tactical operations, and deep, molded-in grooves help you maintain a
firm grip even with wet hands.
Interchangeable inserts give the choice of a straight, uninterrupted
gripping surface or one with a convenient ledge to support the index
finger. Slides over any Picatinny-style rail and locks securely in
place with a hardened steel crossbolt.
