Product Description

The primary difference between the AFG and standard vertical foregrips is weapon controlability.  The low-profile forward grip takes advantage of natural body mechanics to give the shooter more precise control, faster pointing, and less operator fatigue. The AFG positions the support hand close to the centerline of the bore for maximum recoil control to aid in fast, accurate follow-up shots. Provides a consistent reference point for finding the correct hand position quickly when mounting the weapon under stress.

The natural, ergonomic hand position with the palm facing up results in better blood flow than the "clenched fist" stance often used with vertical grips that leads to fatigue and loss of sensation during long periods in the ready position. Improves on the "thumb break" hold often used with standard vertical grips by allowing the thumb to rest comfortably alongside the top rail, pointing forward, with the rest of the hand in full contact with the forend. Heavy-duty reinforced molded polymer construction stands up to the hard knocks of tactical operations, and deep, molded-in grooves help you maintain a firm grip even with wet hands.

The Polymer three-piece design, with interchangeable inserts, give the choice of an "A1-style" straight, uninterrupted gripping surface or an "A2-style" with a convenient ledge to support the index finger. It slides over any M1913 Picatinny-style railed hand guards(min. of 4" recommended) and locks securely in place with a hardened steel crossbolt. All mounting hardware is included.  The AFG may be installed on tactical shotguns and other rifles with railed forends and won't interfere with insertion and removal of magazines on AK-47s.

AFG Installation Instructions:

Step 1: Remove Slotted Screw

                Using a flat-head screwdriver, loosen and completely remove the 10-24 slotted screw.

NOTE: After removing the 10-24 screw, the 10-24 hex nut on the opposite side will be loose. Take care not to lose the nut.

Step 2: Position AFG on Rail

                After the 10-24 slotted screw is removed, slide the AFG onto the rail, making sure there is a clear path for the slotted screw in step 3. If the AFG is too snug to slide easily over the rail, use a 7/16” hex key to loosen the two 6-32 x 5/8” socket head cap screws.

WARNING: Install AFG so it is entirely mounted on the handguard with the front of the fore-grip at least 3” rearward of the muzzle. Failure to do so may result in serious injury, burns, or loss of digits.

Step 3: Install and Tighten Slotted Screw

                When desired position is reached, reinstall the 10-24 slotted screw and tighten with a flat-head screwdriver. Retighten the two socket head cap screws to 8-10 inch-lbs with a 7/16” hex key if loosened in Step 2.

NOTE: Take care not to over tighten screws. Over tightening may result in damage to the AFG.

Step 4: Verify Installation

                Perform final inspection including a function check per US Army TM 9-1005-319-23&P (3-18) Unit and Direct Support Maintenance Manual to verify correct installation.

Always test fire your weapon before using it in an operational environment.

AFG Finger Shelf Insert Install Instructions:

Step A: Remove all three screws
NOTE: Remove AFG from weapon before proceeding.
             Using a flat-head screwdriver remove the 10-24 slotted screw. Once the slotted screw is removed, use a 7/64” hex key to remove the remaining two 6-32 x 5/8” socket head cap screws.
Step B: Separate Two Halves
             Holding the AFG upside-down, “fold” the two halves outward to disengage locking mechanism, then pull apart. Use care not to lose the insert.
Step C: Position Insert
             There are two inserts included with the AFG. The Finger Shelf Insert and the Straight Insert. To install, place the insert into the appropriate groove. Each insert may be installed in either direction to optimize the fore-grip for user preference. After installing the desired insert, hook the Locking Tabs into the appropriate slots and “fold” inward. Hold and continue to Step D.
Step D: Retighten Socket Head Screws
             While holding the 2 halves together, insert the two 6-32 x 5/8” socket head cap screws and tighten using a 7/64” hex key to 8-10 inch-lbs.
NOTE: Take care not to over tighten Socket Head Cap Screws. Over tightening may result in damage to the AFG.

                After this is complete, proceed to Step 2 on the install instructions.
