More companies than Magpul are busy in R&D, and the German engineers at HERA Arms are no exception.
HERA Arms just announced a new product to fill up the underside of your Picatinny rail.
By the looks of it, it’s a new clever invention allowing you to customize the angles and setup of your front grip.
It’s like a “snake” for your Picatinny rail, and it’s called the HFGA.
That’s short for Hera Front Grip Adjustable.
The grip will be available in the following colors: Black, Tan, and OD Green. There is no mentioning of how much HERA want for it yet, just don’t kill the messenger.
It would be nice with some more pictures to see how the grip can be configured, but it looks like there are two attachment points, and three axles that the grip can – to some extent – move around.
Depending on the distance between the attachment points, the angle of the grip will be more or less aggressive.
It doesn’t look like you can make a completely vertical grip out of the design, there’s not enough length on the second piece.

One possible objection with the design is that if the joints are of poor quality, it will be nothing but a rattle snake on your Picatinny. But we need to examine the design before we can say for sure.
HERA will release more news as they are closer to release.
The HEAR Arms Multi-position front grip will be available from August 2017.
