Just wondering, why do you have a fore end vertcal grip on a rifle with a scope?

Oh, and get rid of the POS plastic pistol grip and get a Hogue overmolded one. You'll thank me.

Yeah, the mount was on backwards, it's fixed now

I have the FVG because at 1X its just ever so barley bigger then normal viewing and it had a red reticle so I can use it for quick target finding for up close targets.

I prefer the Magpul MIAD over the Hogue. Oh, did someone mention scoped ARs?

Magpul MIAD = lots of parts to lose, not as comfortable, $32

Hogue = one piece, feels great + solid grip, $14


If I needed extra storage space, the first place I don't look is the grip.


IMHO, the Magpul is just not necessary.

Are you talking about the Pmag? Or are you talking about the MIAD grip?

I have an Colt SP1 that's a worn out POS and another Colt Lower. That's all I got.

The grip. I can get 2 Hogues for the one Magpul and personally I love the way the Hogue feels. I have one on each of my 4 ARs.
