decided to try to make my KAC VFG a stubby.

First i cut all of the grooves off of the grip, then cut part of the threads and part of the inner tube by the same amount. If you only cut the tube, the threads wont fit inside the grip, so you have to make sure you cut enough of the threads to still fit, but also to still bite.

I also cut the lower ring off and wanted to keep it to glue back onto the grip.

Super Glued everything back together and let it set for a while

I plan on it, just wanting to spend on other stuff. Priority is a lower for my friends birthday, then a new trigger for me, then a stubby.

Aside from that, I like DIY projects, wanted to see how it would come out. this is my shtf gun so I'm not gonna rely on a super glued grip, I might try cutting some slits in the joints and using epoxy, then if I can't break it with reasonable force I might trust it.

Nice rifle, cool grip! I did the same thing to my stock rather than buying another one, why not modify.

Nice job.

Buying new is not the answer to every problem regardless of what the marketing machine tells you.

Nice job, paint look good too. IMHO Its fun to F with stuff you have and make it your own, If it gets jacked up beyond repair then buy a new one.

What light and bezel is that?

Thanks. The light is from lumaforce, it was super cheap ($70ish), but it outperforms my surefires and my 5.11 "light for life". Much brighter and a much better throw than anything else that I own, i keep it on my rifle even at the range to see how it holds up to shock, it's seen about 700-800 rounds so far and still has no issues.
