Default Anyone have this foregrip? Fortis Shift

Looking at this foregrip on rainier, but I am not sure about how bad I want to spend $65 bucks on something I may not like. Anyone have one? Any likes, dislikes? If you have it on a rifle, do you have pics?

They had it on sale for $35 on Friday. It looks like more of a photography/showcase/safe queen thing than an actual functional fore grip. IMO

But I need at least 4 CR123A's on my rifle! For what I don't know.

/s

To be honest, that looks like an okay design. Reduced weight etc. The only thing I don't like it maybe something getting snagged on it? Can't tell if there are any sharp edges or corners etc. from just that angle. $65 sounds a bit too expensive for a grip IMO.

I don't see any sharp edges but a friend of mine sent me that like and I turned it down. I would just get a magpul grip and save the rest of the money for ammo.

Wait I just saw the grip on a rifle...No, I still would not do it. I think I just dislike all of Fortis's gear.

Just another tacticool thing that you'll ultimately replace with a cheaper, lighter magpul foregrip IMO

You're not alone. It looks ugly and uncomfortable. I would take either afg or rvg over this. I have both and they are still cheaper together than this one grip.

Doesn't look too user friendly, seems like it would get stuck on something. Isn't polymer lighter anyways? 65 bucks, really?? That's like 3 Magpul grips lol

Looks ugly costs a lot. Looks like it will get snagged alot and hard to wipe down. Knights armerment foregrip is simple and effective

I'd try one, if I had a queen to put it on.

Kind of looks cool, if you want to stare at your rifle on a wall.

For use, go Magpul.

AR jewelry. Doesn't make sense to use something like that. Big time gear snag hazard.

In my honest opinion, all of Fortis' gear look terrible. However, I'm sure that they work and are made well, but good lord..
