I just got off the phone with a certain company and I was told the Magpul AFG should be shipping mid December. Just like all new Mapgul products the black AFG's will be out first and then the other colors will follow. I would love it if they were all offered at once but I have a hunch that we will see black first. I ordered 10 in black and I'm sure they will pop up in the classified section if I have any left by then. I also ordered some FDE but I doubt they will show up at the same time.

Yep, they'll be $34.95. There isn't much profit margin at all on this product but I can offer $5 shipping and it can be combined with other things like Pmags and Emags at no extra charge beyond the initial $5 shipping charge.

This is Magpul we're talking about. I think you need to tack on 2 years to the release date.

I think this one, honestly, is different.

I think they've learned some (hard) lessons - by seeing your products chinese cloned before you can release them because you talk before you're in production.

I've got an AFG on the way to me right now so it seems they may be close. Still, I don't do "pre-sales" on new Magpul products. There really is no need, once you get the initial shipment in stock they tend to fly off the shelves anyway so why bother with dealing with broken promises?

Wanna make the bet? :D

If they ship by Christmas, you buy me an AFG.

If not, I buy you two .308 PMags. . . when they're released. :rofl2:

Has this product been determined as a forward grip or not and whether or not it can be used legally on featureless rifles?

i doubt DOJ would just go out and classify something without being asked to, but i think the name of the product classifies itself. AFG = Angled Fore Grip...

you can always write a letter to them. ;)

True...

It would be cool to rock it on pistol upper....:43:

So, would the BATFE consider a AFG to be the same as a VFG?
Looking to see if I can legally put one on my AK pistol.

I think the AFG kind of falls into the same discussion as to whether a PRS stock is a "collapsible stock". I personally do not think the AVG is a "forward pistol grip" nor do I think the PRS is a "telescoping or folding stock", but there are some very cautious people that would argue the other way.

I got my AFG last week and took some pics:
