Magpul Angled Foregrip
For decades the most noticeable thing on automatic firearms would be a vertical forward grip. That eye-catching part is regularly connected with legendary Thompson, Beretta or Romanian and Hungarian AK47 clones. Today, vertical forward grip (VFG) could be found as optional part on AR platform rifles as well as on similar modern assault rifles and shotguns. However, Magpul Industries, a respected manufacturer, have offered an alternative to the traditional vertical foregrip called Angled Fore Grip (AFG).
By dimensions, a small accessory, the AFG is designed for particular styles of shooting allowing for different holding techniques and stances. Unlike conventional vertical fore-grips, the AFG was created to be used with a specific shooting method which helps for recoil control, fast follow up shots and quicker target acquisition. The Magpul AFG extending users support hand putting it closer to the bore for added control by wrapping fingers overboard of gun and driving rifle in an aggressive manner. The Magpul angled grip is ergonomically designed to account for the angle of one's hand when a shooter is griping gun in such a fashion. Considering natural body mechanics, the AFG provides a comfortable and stable user interface that reduces fatigue during prolonged firefights or shooting sessions. In other words, the Magpul AFG offers proper support hand grip without the wrist strain that some operators experience when gripping high on the fore end. The AFG can be mounted onto a standard military spec Picatinny rail, with interchangeable finger shelf offering both flat surface and finger nub depending on shooters preferences.
Recently the Magpul Industries have released the new updated angled foregrips called the AFG2, which is shorter in overall length and width compared to the basic AFG. Smaller size provides for mounting on a wider variety of railed hand guards and better compatibility with rail covers and accessory mounts.
What People are saying about the Magpul AFG
The Magpul AFG2 is sleek looking and when holding in a shooting position allows you to pull the weapon into your shoulder with a natural feel — a lot less arm fatigue than a vertical foregrip. I highly recommend it. Installation and adjusting are simple.

One of the best-designed foregrips on the market!
I had the original version from Magpul on my patrol rifle for some time. I swapped to this one because it's more slimline and allows for less interference with other accessories. This is my go-to foregrip and hasn't found anything else I like better. I would highly recommend this product to anyone in the market.
This is a lovely Angled foregrip for a carbine. I originally got this for a Tavor X95 since it was difficult to wrap my thumb around the handguard. This allows for a secure grip on the carbine and also helps to reduce muzzle rise since the angle of the grip causes you to pull slightly downward. After testing on the Tavor, I also added this to my MPX and planned to add another one to my M&P 15-22.
Great Choice for a Angled Foregrip
I would say this AFG grip is the best fit for me works great.tried other grips that didn't work the Magpul Angled Foregrip is the way to go, gives me the best grip possible.would recommend this product to others.
Does what it is supposed to do
Good firm fit doesn't shake or have to be forced into place. I obliterated the screw before installing on my quad rail, and it slid into place beautifully. I am pleased with this Magpul afg1 and would repurchase it.
I have a Magpul AFG on all my AR's and everyone I ever own will have one on it. Easy to install. Looks better and functions better than the straight up and down style. Adds a minor amount of weight to the gun.
I have used a fair amount of foregrips both in training and in combat. I am pretty familiar with traditional M4 type builds, so most of my furniture is pretty old school; vertical foregrips for KA, that type of thing. I recently made a new upper with a. It's modern rail design and wanted something a little more current, more ergo friendly. After a bit of shopping, I decided on the AFG2, and I am so glad I did. Low profile compares to most vertical grips, perfectly sized for most standard sized hands(sorry manlets), and not to mention, it looks pretty great on more extended rail systems, by shortening the overall appearance of the upper. It provides for an excellent grip purchase on the weapon, and my hand seems to find it with ease naturally. Rapid and easy install, reliable, and durable mounting system. I have mine mounted to an adapter for them-lok system, and it works great, very solid. I have reasonably priced as well. Helps manage recoil by providing a more aggressive lead hand grip purchase. Excellent AR foregrips. No reason not to own one.
