Modified Magpul AFG1

Post by Kuyanator on Wed Apr 03, 2013 4:58 pm

So I used a little of my Dremel-Fu to fit the AFG1. Being a south-paw, I grip the front of the body with my right hand and I am always afraid that I might unintentionally drop the mag with my middle finger.

I am a fan of the AFG1 and have them on most of my ARs, so I am already familiar with the setup. I was impressed with some of your mods to the grip, however, I wanted to retain as much as the form factor as possible. So, here it is.

- Cheers

I like this mod.
I have one arriving and was gonna make the other i saw here, but now i am wondering, prob will try this one out 1st if i dont like i can always do the other afterwards.

I dont like the vertical grip it comes with feels awkwards, but using the Kriss without it i tend to put my finger on top of the bolt catch button and lock the bolt when firing wich is a no no, also i get my hands all over the side emplacement for the laser n flashlight buttons wich makes me turn them on unadvertilly, well i guess for each one of us is a diferent story, what works for one doesnt for the other.

Since im running laser n flashlight on the right rail and the flashlight is sligthly upper its not gonna stick out too much the fact the AFG is sticking foward from the frame.

I just did this with my SDP, but haven't had a chance to shoot it yet... Sad

With the 6.5" barrel on my "Kalifornia Special" the end of the Magpul grip stops just short of the end of the barrel. ;)
(I will wear gloves the first time I try it, though...)

I agree with you on the vertical grip. The control mechanisms are placed in unconventional areas, I had to come up with a solution... this was mine. You should give this setup a try and like you said, if you don't like it, you could mod the rest of it; it took literally less than 15 minutes to do.

Let me know how it shoots with the grip. I was going to do the SDP route because it is easier (and I think cheaper) to SBR. I shot the SDP and found myself wanting to always shoulder the weapon on the imaginary stock. And at the rate stamps are coming, I'd figure it may take more that 6 months before I get mine. 6 months with wanting to shoulder the SDP would bug me. I wondered if the grip would mitigate the need / want to shoulder the weapon.

Nice. I agree. The hand can inadvertently release the mag. Try removing the plate. It will be just a normal Glock mag release underneath. This might help avoid inadvertent mag release.

Out of curiosity, what happened to your factory sights?

Hmm, I'm going to have to figure out how to remove the plate. As for the sights, I still have them. I'm familiar with the MBUS sight picture and the Diamond I'm still on the fence about them. I'll probably give them another go when I'm more accustomed to the Vector platform.

Or you can trade them to me for my spare lower housing wink wink haha.

The plate is held by some small screws. I think they are torx. They may be loctited in. Another option is to buy the extended glock 21 mag release from Lone Wolf Distributors. Same part.

Anyone have a pic with the extended mag release on one?

I ordered a replacement mag release from kriss a while back and it was the lone wolf release. So if you remove the plate, it already is the extended mag release.

You are welcome. Haha I created the mod. IMHO it is the ideal grip for a short barreled KRISS.

After seeing a few mods here, I did the same with my AFG as well and it looks and functions great.
