    I have a SW M&P15 and a Stag that I want to add fore grips too. Don't want some cheapo thing......what is the best brand in your opinions??

    LaRue and Bobro are the top two in my opinion.

    What kind of foregrip are you looking for? Do you use a beercan grip? (good for 7.5" SBRs and sub machine guns, many people still use it on longer carbines too) Or do you shoot thumb over bore? (good for anything longer and helps control muzzle rise)

    I really like the KAC hand stop.

    Tango down stubby grip works great as a reference point too.

    I have not tried the new magpul AFG much personally, but it is interesting to say the least.

    I haven't used beercan style grip much since I don't have an SBR but if I did, I would look at the longer version of the tango down VFG.

    Do you have rails or just the factory handguards?

    I really like the Magpul MOE handguards, coupled with the MOE vertical grip. Run you about $50 for both pieces and works great.

    Bobro is the best you can buy.

    The one Skang has for sale above is a great deal!!!

    You guys ever though about a magwell grip? I simply grab the magwell...even put a pressure switch for any lights/lasers on the receiver.

    I'm a huge fan of the Tangodown stubby. I always kept an extra 3 rounds in mine.

    i love the bobro shorty... Makes for a perfect ref point and still able to get full grip on it

    I think it looks the best because of the billet cnc cut aluminum base. Also the locking mechanism attaches to rail so fast and you dont have to slide it on which means you dont have to take off other accessories to put it on; Unlike the TangoDown...

    Its handle is made from composite so its lighter than the FUG but Larue probably has a better locking mech. couldn't go wrong with either but I say stay away from the TD. I've had one TD when they came out alooong time ago and it was a bit loose fitting on 2 seperate milspec rails so I tossed it

    I've played around with both a bobro VFG and a tango down stubby with a QD mount. Liked them both a lot.

    I have Bobro standard one for sale :D

    Like other said, what Bobro beats the other is how they mount.

    I have a Fobus SMG grip. It is small, cheap and strong. I have been using it for about 7 or 8 years. The thing was under $20 and has never failed me.
