Is the 2nd version only smaller than the first version also?

yes, the 2nd version is a bit smaller. Mostly so it would work easier on the MOE handguards.

As far as the featureless thing goes, its hotly debated with nothing conclusive (yet).

Do a search for it in this forum, you will find at least 2 or 3 threads filled with debate.

I firmly believe its good to go on a featureless rifle, but Im not going to go into explanation (or start another debate) here. Just look it up!

It takes a little getting used to, but then you'll feel it's a good improvement.

Not high cost so it's low risk to try. Someone on this forum would always be there to buy it if you change your mind.

I'm a big fan of the AFG2. :)

OP you are correct the AFG2 is NOT considered a pistol grip as per the ATF if you read some of the debate threads.

I find them very comfortable for close shooting drills.

i prefer the AFG1

AFG1 is incompatible with some quad rails when running XTM panels because of the flared "lip".

The AFG2 works great on my moe hand guard, that I run on my lightweight AR Carbine. Like stated above, if you buy it and aren't happy with it-I bet someone on calguns will buy it off of you.

I dont prefer either.. I had a version 2, sold it. That shooting posture just fatigued my shoulder and upper arm... Went back to a VG, and now the indexing of my hand and grip more towards a "boxer" stance has put me back to all day shooting comfort. I still use the VG only with the bottom 3-4 fingers with my thumb on the side handuard pointing forward.

That's true as I realized after I bought mine but it's nothing a belt sander won't fix in about 5 seconds...

I tried it. Didn't like it. It makes it harder to pull the rifle into your shoulder. Went with a handstop, the straight angle doesn't hurt my wrist so no angled grip needed.

Don't like it. A railed handguard + the AFG = an overly,weird-angled thick grip

My hands are medium size but it's just too large and awkward with the AFG. I prefer a handstop or a VFG and using that as a handstop.

Please check the other threads on the subject. Suffice it to say there are plenty of reasons why putting one on a featureless is a risky proposition.
