Default Suggestions on foregrip

I'm looking to fashion a foregrip for my MR1 so that it looks more rifle-like. I'll most likely make it out of wood, but the problem I'm running into is running the macro line. I wanted to run a 90* fitting straight off the marker then run it back to the trigger guard and down to the bottom line. I dunno if this will work or not. Gimme anything you got. Thanks

Brown..........................wood foregrip
Black and Lt Gray...........Macroline
Drk Gray.......................Fittings

I dont think that would work... I mean two 90*s together... You would run into problems with leakage I assume. Nice idea though. Brings me to wonder why 3rd party developers arnt comming up with something like this for the MR's yet. Although Tippman has them... ugh.

i have been brainstorming for a while about how to get three weaver rails on the sides and bottom of the gun, and a raised sight rail, on the mr1. this would all be one piece that attached instead of the foregrip. but i dont know how to get it all around that line right there. WE NEED 3RD PARTY MANUFACTURING!!!!!!!!!!!!

what if i just run a 90 off the marker, then just have the line come through the foregrip towards the trigger guard? or even try to mod a tippman foregrip.

i was lookin' on ebay recently, and you can find macroline and fittings for cheap. I havent been able to check at a paintball store for availability and prices, but im sure it wouldnt be that bad. I was also looking at my foregrip design, does anyone think it should be longer? more of the grip uner the barrel?

Check out hobbyhorse's Macroline sale in the B/s/t forums. he has BY FAR the cheapest macroline and fitting prices you can get.

I bet what you could do is drill a hole and then a channel in the wooden forgrip (which I assume you'd be making?) to a 90* macro fitting where the stock hose normally goes. Then use the mounting screws for the mag to hold the foregrip on.

Thanks for the heads up on the macroline. I would make the foregrip; and about the channel and 90* fitting. I dunno if i should use one or two. If i use one, it will come directly off the marker and the macroline will run along the bottom of the marker in a channel on the foregrip and then angle out of it towards the foregrip. If i use two, it will look like it does above. Either way, there will be a channel that houses the fittings and macroline in the middle of the foregrip. I was also thinking that a new asa/ bottomline might help with running the macroline to it. something without a dropforward.

Ah yes, you really don't need the fittings inside the foregrip, they won't be doing too much at all. If you were to remove the drop you miht be able to use a 90* fitting from there.
