I was at RifleGear last weekend and they had one on a rifle with a MOE hand guard. I have to say it felt damn good.

I am thinking I now need to build a MOE only gun.

I bet it works well but it's just plain ugly! Thats just my opinion.It looks incomplete. But with that said I will probably still buy one.............

I got one of the MOE versions a few weeks back (Midway was shipping them on 4-15) and it is pretty cool for the money ($18.95). I really like the texture to it, its very grippy, and the shape/length is just what I was looking for. It mounts really well on the MOE handguard. However...I regret not getting the RVG version since I would like to be able to remove it without removing the handguard. At the time I did not know the RVG came with a section of rail. I think I might sell the MVG and get a RVG...but I am not sure yet. I think the smoothness of the transition from the grip to the guard might make the slower removal worth the hassle.

imo, unless you are absolutely never going to change from your MOE handguard, there is no reason why anyone should choose a MVG over a RVG. sure it's a bit more lower profile on your MOE handguard, but if you ever want to change your stuff up, then the MVG becomes useless. with the RVG you can use it on just about anything with rails or not.

is there any play/slop with the RVG?

nope, it's solid. i agree with deadnought, it's an ugly piece. but it does work very well.

I can't understand the high prices on many of those grips either. I'll probably pick one of these up when they come out in FDE. I prefer it for rifles here in So Cal anyway. So far I have had pretty good luck with many of the inexpensive vertical grips. The most expensive one I have is a Tapco one that cost under $20. The $6-8 polymer ones that Midway was clearing out a few months back work just fine as well. I don't understand why people would pay that much more for something that is only there to let you index your off hand. Unless you get one with a light or a laser, what is the point? All you need is something that locks on securely, and doesn't rattle around. I am not planning on using it for a ladder, and I don't need yet another storage compartment on most of my guns to add more weight to them. So why spend the extra money on what is the AR equivilent of pinstriping? I'd rather sink any extra funds into things that actually matter, like improved extractors or better sights.
