Appreciation for the vertical foregrip seems to be a subjective thing, with some shooters (and trainers) heralding their utility and others reviling their use, but for fans of the concept, the American Built Arms Co. V-Grip provides a solid option that is lightweight and low-profile. Securely attaching to any Picatinny rail segment of adequate size by way of a two-screw mount, the foregrip is at home on all manner of modern sporting rifles and tactical shotguns. Designed to conform to the shape of the human hand, the V-Grip is made from a polymer composite and is built for hard use. Weighing just 3.3 ozs., the unit also features a small bottom compartment for storage of a battery or similarly sized item. A veteran-owned company that manufactures all of its products domestically, AB Arms offers the V-Grip in black and flat dark earth. Price: $40. Contact: American Built Arms Co., P.O. Box 221, Glen Rock, PA 17327; (443) 310-8777; abarms.com.
