Need a short angled foregrip for my AK 74un.

Recommended Posts

It has a ris rail, but a rather short one - only nine gaps on the picatinny rail making a rail length of about 9cm.

 

The short version of the normal polymer ones is about 12cmlong, and I need something shorter. At 12cm I imagine the two ends would bend down. 

 

Problem is that many retailers give no dimensions for their products. 

 

I have a short vertical grip on the very end to avoid problems with magazine changes, but it doesn't really look right on an AK. I'd like something a little closer to my supporting hand.

 

If anybody has any ideas please advise me.

You could try the Zenitco PK-6 http://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=207844 or the  RK-1 it longer than you ask for by it set at a slight angle https://grey-shop.ru/Patches/Outer-Tuning/Zenitco-Grip  or if you wanted to add more space you could try the B-9M Goose give you some more room to use https://grey-shop.ru/Patches/Outer-Tuning/B-9M-Goose

If there's no room you could try a handstop instead

Thanks a lot, but some of that stuff is a little more than I want to pay.

Maybe not a bad idea, in conjunction with some rubber rail covers.

Hi cap mag!

Got two. All metal. I do prefer the midcaps though. I keep forgetting to wind the clockwork ones.

I modified a Magpul AFG clone. I'll upload a picture at some point.

 

Quite like it so will likely do it with a real one soon too.

Look forward to it.

 

Thanks to you all for your help.

Have a look at some of the 5Ku ones here: https://www.weapon762.com/231-grips

Or alternatively FMA do a fairly short angled grip http://www.fma.hk/angled-fore-grip-tb1101-p-1277.html but you may have to scour ebay to find the part or possibly order from Aliexpress/ebairsoft

Thanks Lozart. I like the look of both those.

 

Especially the first.

Here ya go. I much prefer it because it sits much closer to the magwell and allows for being lazy. If I actually want to hit something I can move my hand forward and still have the space to do so (which I wouldn't if it sat where it would do normally).

 

When I neaten it up I'll remove the whole flat part and only leave the angled bit, but this was mostly to check measurements.

It's an enhancement for the mag release paddle. It clamps to the paddle and gives you a bigger area so you can release your magazine with your trigger finger.
