by Pete

Would you like that MP5K look without all that HK pretentiousness*? Do you like your fingers enough to save them terminal bullet impact syndrome? Look no further! A3 Tactical has just release a vertical fore grip (VFG) with an integrated hand stop that look both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Available in M-LOK, Keymod or Picatinny mounting solutions, the K grip and K grip set is available starting at $79.99.

* It’s not insulting, I have participated in HK pretentiousness.

A3 Tactical Vertical Foregrip DESCRIPTION

A3 Tactical’s Vertical Grip with integrated hand stop is a robust, machined aluminum grip featuring a radiused profile mount. The mount tapers to meet the mounting surface on the handguard, giving a low-profile feel with ergonomic comfort. Twin mounting screws with an additional “positive-stop” lug ensure a secure attachment.

The HGS001 was developed specifically for all KEYMOD handguards and is the perfect foregrip for your lightweight rifle or carbine. With its modular grip design, it can be set up with multiple grip configurations. Our “stubby” grip and mid-length “Grenade” style grips are both ideal for CQC or any application where a minimalist grip is necessary. The HGS001 takes full advantage of all the KEYMOD design features, such as strength, lightweight, and simplicity.

Machined completely from 6061 T6 aluminum, our grip and mount were designed with weight saving features in mind. The overall weight of the SHORT grip and mount is only 4.5 ounces, 5.5 ounces for the mid and long grip. The use of stainless KEYMOD nuts and Grade 8 fasteners guarantees this grip will survive any abuse you can give it. Finished in Graphite Black Cerakote gun coating.

    I have a 22lr AR-15 SBR that this thing would look amazing on, but $80 is a lot of money. Wonder if we'll ever see a polymer version. That said, the modularity of it is a cool idea.

    I'm not gonna read TFB anymore if literally everything is on ARFCOM first. This has been a thread for a few days now.

      @Friend Between afrcom and Reddit, yes. It’s tough to stay ahead of the curve apparently.
