Here are the pics of my custom foregrip and my spankin' new Qloader. Let me know what you think. THe foregrip will have a little more shaping still, hoping to get some of the "blockness" out of it. I'm also going to stain it black.

Guess I'll be the first to say it outright, why so big and bulky? What is the purpose of having the humongous block rather than a smaller sized one? Drago doesn't get it -

The aluminum that is in the middle the foregrip is what is attached to the actual marker. The wood is then mounted to that.

That size fits in my hand good. I'm a bigger guy and it is a lot easier to bring it up to my shoulder with that size block on there.

I'm still gonna try and get the bottom corners rounded out, and stain it. I thank everyone for their replies and comments!

Certainly makes a unique marker. I like it, I'm sure when its stained it'll look much better than it already does.

I dont really like where you have the Q-loader placed... but thats just my likes with the q-loader. I personally like it below the marker, so there is nothing on top, destroying my view directly down the gun.

The wood is much more comfortable then metal. I will agree. Softer on the hands.

I rounded out the bottom of the grip more. I'm staining it this weekend. I'll probably have pictures up sometime this upcoming week.

Thats really the only place I could find the QLoader to fit well. I didn't get the CMS upgrade, but even with that, I'm not sure where I could get the QLoader where it would still be aesthetically nice and still easy to change out the QPods quickly. Any ideas, let me know.

I think my ideal position for the q-loader would be around where the barrel starts mounted on the side of the gun with the back of the pod in the back of the gun, but its impossible to mount there :(.

You know, thats exactly how I would have mounte it if I could. That was the best place I could think of before I even got the QLoader and foregrip.:)

I just mounted my Q-loader to the front grip. Took some bending of the biggest ring to put it on there, but it's secure and looks nice. (My gun looks different then that now. It has a Lithum black flashlight (wich by the way is too powerful... it almost blinded me when I first looked into it to test the brightness... then I read on the box. "WARNING: Do not look directly into bulb. Could cause perminate blindness." :dodgy: ))

I'm working on getting a MR3 rail for it and the Proteam FX carstock and red dot sight. Then it will be done.

How did you mount the wood to the gun? Screw it in the screw holes?

Well, the aluminum is actually the only thing bolted to the marker. I drilled four holes, in a straight line, in the aluminum. The first one (closest to the front) is so that I can access the retaining screw for the valve spring. The second was for the first bolt used to hold the aluminum on; which utilizes the holes from the old foregrip. The third was for the macroline fitting to go through so that it could be screwed into the marker. The fourth is just for the second bolt to hold it on, again, utilizing the old foregrip hole. Then there are ten holes in the aluminum, five on each side of the marker. Four of them are for screws to hold the top piece of the foregrip on. The other six are for screws that pass through the bottom piece, into the top piece. That is how the whole thing is held together, and essentially held on the marker.:D
