View Full Version : "Stubby" Foregrip Bipod?

I picked up one of those vertical foregrips with the 'press the button-the bipod shoots out.' I gotta admit, it ain't a bad idea and it has come in handy.

But does anyone know of a shorter version? This thing puts my patrol rifle case at its limit.

Not yet, GPS is showing all their offerings with a standard 6.25" length.

There's only 1 Grip-Pod that I know of, no stubby version yet. That's the official name of the item, the Grip-Pod. My buddy has one issued to him in the military, not sure if he's lying, cuz I don't know if it's really issued... or privately purchased.

.mil issues grip pods to those who want them now.

How nice, that's an $80 grip!

Mine is the cheapie version....probably airsoft. I think I paid $15 for it, but it works fine. I think if I were taking it to combat I might splurge for the more sturdy version.
But still, I would like to get one that's shorter so it would fit in the case better.

I've noticed that those seem really long.
I like a short grip or none at all.

I bought a stubby alum for the VFG as well, the full length one looked kinda cool but was unwieldy.

whadda ya complaining about!
they are still putting troops in $250K hummers that can be disabled or killed with a $60 home made IED!

The IED is free, we supply the unexploded ordnance, they get a discarded cell phone and some scrap wires. The end. We need to send out scout sniper teams and decoy the decoy and when they see our troops, we blow their heads off.

Slight drift here, but ....I have one of these on a used AR I just picked up in trade. I'm curious if it's a real Grip Pod or a paintball forgery. No I.D. markings on it anywhere. The pictures of the items side by side on the interweb stores are absolutely EYE-DENT-EE-KULL. Anyone have a clue how to tell them apart?

I'm a gun pamperer anyway, so it probably will never matter. Old and dis-abled, so I'm not going to be making any diving leaps, landing with the bipod extended.

:rofl: Makes me laugh just thinking about it. :rofl:

Found what I needed.

There's a video on the Grip Pod web site that shows how to tell the forgeries.

I've been thinking about picking up one or two of the Mako T-pods. They don't seem too "high profile".
