First off ,this product I think is great for my MP15.
So I bought this grip pod at the gun show for $40.
Long story short the leg broke.
Does any body know where to get replacement parts?
tried to search web had no luck.
Any help would be great.
Thank you.

Throw the grip pod away and get yourself a Bobro VFG. If you need a bipod they make those too.

There's the $40 gun show model, and then there's the $150 steel leg version. :cool:

I don't have one yet, been considering them. But I'd venture to guess you got some knock-off. The real polymer ones are around $80, with the mil-spec (alumanium reinforced) ones being probably twice that much or more.

Yes, $80 for the real plastic one, and $150 for the aluminum version.

I did hear you can buy the airsoft version for $25 but you will break it in short order.

In Iraq, the grippod is perhaps the single most common addition to the M16/M4 platform, as well as being common use on other weapons, too. It's definitely no gimmick.

After seeing the real deal, I take back my copmment about not getting one. I may even get one. However, you got ripped off my friend and I stand by my comment about throwing yours away. Spare parts for your Chinese knockoff are not going to help. I would just buy a real one from a reputable vendor.

Real deal from an authorized vendor:

POS knockoff for less than the gun show:

According to the GPS website, only the GPS01SAW model has aluminum legs. They are no longer made and the price was $375.00. They were made primarily for miltary contracts. The legs were machined, not cast, and had holes drilled in them.

Here is a thread with more info on grip pods:

The OP said the legs on his were cast allumimum. That is a fake.

We stock the genuine Grip pods. They are patented so no legitimate company makes the copies. As has been mentioned all the fakes tend to be junk.

The LE polymer version $89 and mil version with aluminum reinforced polymer legs is $139.

I wish they'd make one that was just a little shorter. But I think these things are a good idea.

The grip pod my brother has in the military is all polymer.

I might have had the aluminum reinforcements inside. You have to look for it to see it. I think I remember the very early mil units being all aluminum but the currents ones they buy are polymer with the reinforced legs. You can literally stand on the weapon with only the legs supporting you.

I have a Mako T-Pod on the way. I can't wait to test it out, looks like a good design and it came highly recommended by several LEO's.

Is Tapco's basically the same thing?

And they're both too damn long. Stick to a VFG for VFG uses and a bipod for bipod uses. Compromises between two different things usually don't do either thing very well. YMMV

It is the right height for the military which is their target market and they are not worried about it fitting in case. LOL

It is not intended to replace a bipod on a SPR but the military sees a lot of value in it. Another nice feature is a accessory light mount. Here is a interesting write up. The Grip Pod rep addresses why the military thinks it is a better option that a vertical equipped carbine with a bipod.
