Default Best front grip/expansion chamber

Ok I dont really need an expansion chamber but a tube type replacement of the stock foregrip.

One that maybe has an inlet at the bottom/side... what will I need to screw in the body so that if I fall on it it wont strip the threads out.

You could always weld the stock forgrip to the body. If that broke it would be because of a crappy weld.


You could goto a local machine shop & have them wipe you up something that screws into the factory airline hole then uses the factory holes for the forgrip on top of that. Could build a brace that mounts to the stock forgrip & attachs to the bottom of the frame.

I could keep the ideas rolling but Im not......

Get a lapco spyder vertical ASA and a gas through grip. The MR1 body adapter will fit into the gas through grip perfectly and i think will do what you are asking.

Here are links to ebay for the two parts: Lapco vertical ASA and Gas through grip

I'm not talking about a custom job, I'm talking about something like an expansion chamber but with its inlet not at the bottom..

I have just found a deal that mounts to the body with a raidas and all, then you can screw on what ever you want... now to find the EC !

Expansion chambers are the pits... get a stabilizer. better in the long run and you will not frustrate yourself with the liquid CO2 in your marker hassle....

Get a Palmer's Male Stabilizer and a vertical ASA adapter. The male stab has the airline coming out of the side and not the bottom. Its better than a standard expansion chamber, but it is pricey. You could go with just a expansion chamber that has the air line on the side - that is cheaper.
