Magpul AFG2

Over the last few weeks I’ve been debating on which forward grip to go with for my Kavod KVD-15 rifle from Kavod Custom. My goal is to keep this rifle simple, and as streamlined as possible. That being said, I finally decided to go with the Magpul AFG2 (Angled Fore Grip), which I picked up at our new local gun shop, Liberty Guns (be sure to check them out)!

The AFG2 is a slim line design that is shorter in overall length and width compared to the original AFG. Smaller size allows for mounting on a wider variety of railed hand guards and better compatibility with rail covers and accessory mounts.

Compatible with most any 1913 Picatinny-railed hand guard, the Magpul AFG2 (Angled Fore-Grip) takes into account natural body mechanics and provides a comfortable and stable user interface that reduces fatigue and allows for more precise weapon control. By positioning the shooter’s hand high on the centerline of the bore, unlike conventional vertical fore-grips, the AFG2 helps mitigate recoil and control the weapon to facilitate faster, more accurate follow-up shots.

Magpul AFG2 Specs:

  • Weight: 2.53 oz.
  • Length: 4.70 in.
  • Height, over rail: 1.94 in.
  • Width, maximum: 1.37 in.
  • Features:
    • Polymer three-piece design with an interchangeable finger shelf that allows for a flat “A1-style” surface or an “A2-style” finger nub
    • Mounts to MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny and NATO STANAG 4694 rails (min. of ~3″ recommended)
    • All mounting hardware included

The Magpul AFG2 was the last item needed before we begin testing the Kavod KVD-15, other than a red dot, which I’ll figure out later. Stay tuned for more…

I almost forgot to mention… the gun vise shown in the Magpul AFG2 pic above is the P3 Ultimate Gun Vise from our friends at CTK Precision.
