Im looking for a VFG for my railed .50 Beo setup. I want something relatively inexpensive, thats not too slim (prefer something with a lil extra width to it for comfort), something that doesnt look too goofy. What are your recommendations? I was almost thinking about some of the stubby types.

Thanks Guys!

Knight's Armament is decent if thin, Tango Down is great as is the LaRue FUG.

Larue is all aluminum and the tango is composite right?

without the flare you can only fit 1 cr123 inside.

the larue doesn't feel like it's all aluminum. not quite sure what it's made of.

The LaRue is NOT all aluminum. It's polymer.

As is TangoDown.

They're by far my two favorite.

I like LaRue because it's configurable, but like anything else (think MIAD), you usually pick one config and stick with it. The "medium" larue is between the TangoDown short and long.

The more I shoot, the more I prefer the shorter VFGs. They're less obtrusive and still serve their purpose.

The biggest advantage to the LaRue, though, is it's QD and has internal compartment space.

I haven't yet handled the TD QD, but I'm betting it's very good, as well. The standards can be a b**** to install.

Another vote for Tango Down. I am running the stubby vertical foregrip, and it is very short but as UCLA said they are not as bulky/dont get in the way as much and they work just as well as a full sized VG.

Keep in mind Larue has sticked CA with the finger on the lower...!

BOBRO Vertical Fore Grip w/ SACL. It twists on and off with a couple turns of a screw for those days you don't want a VFG on your rifle.

Has anybody tried the VFG that has the bipod/stand that hides away in the grip? It seems like a gimmick, but I was thinking of getting one for the stand aspect of it. I would think that using it as a bipod would lead to breakage. It doesn't seem beefy enough. http://www.grippod.com/

No. I use this RRA monopod on my AR-10 clone.

I bought a cheapo Chinese one and my experience with it was that the built-in bipod feature was very handy. However the grip is very beefy, very heavy, there was rattling inside of it, and it felt very cheaply made. I doubt the bipod legs would stand up to heavy recoil. The real ones would probably be fine (as far as strength and durability goes) as FN put them on both their 5.56 and 7.62 SCAR rifles.

Grippods are handy, but they're big and heavy.

I wouldn't want one in a tactical course, but they're nice for field and range work.

I would have to say get the tango down with the QD lever. Larue doesnt support CA gun owners and wont sell lowers to CA.

The LaRue grip is nice. It's CNC from polymer and the metal parts are also CNC.

The Tango Down is great and available in different colors and length.

Stay away for CCA/First Samco. I got a free one but it won't fit into 1913 rail. It wasted my time to make it fit. It ended up I cut too much of it so it's a little lose.

I picked-up a GG&G for less than $40. It's not as nice as the LaRue but for the price, it fits tight and works like a champ. I likit allot.
