I'm contemplating a front grip system for the 995 TS. I've found a bunch of different options. So.........
1. Does a front grip 'make' you more accurate?
2. Is yours a folding or static grip?
3. Is yours horizontal/vertical?

Bottom line, what would you suggest?

Cheers and thanks in advance -WR2

I would suggest a drop down bipod front grip.
I've seen one on here before & it looked very functional for a grip & the bipod made for a nice shooting platform.

I would put a short stubby forend grip on it.

The polymer rail on the 995TS forend is only held on by 2 screws and it's not very durable. You will have to be careful with what you mount it because a lot side to side force will damage it. It's really only durable enough for a flashlight and laser.

Max,
For-end rail is plenty durable for a handle....HP has an after-market folding handle that has a compartment in the bottom for the wrench. I know some have shipped but not sure if you can order them yet.

Bottom line, what would you suggest?
1.) No--but use of a vertical grip feels like a more natural way to hold a firearm (personally)
2.) Both my GSG-5 and Stag M4 have fixed vertical grips
3.) Vertical

I'd suggest a basic vertical grip for the rail beneath the handguard. You'll feel much more comfortable holding the weapon after you add it. Most can be had for right around $20.00

Thanks for the replies!!!!

I decided to start slow and see if I like the forward grip or not so I went to Gander Mtn. today and bought
http://www.fab-defense.com/en/category-foregrips/id-4/quick-release-argonomic-vertical-foregrip.html

Haven't shot it yet but I agree that it feels more 'comfortable', at least for a tactical rifle. If it feels good at the range I'll upgrade to one of the bi-pods or folding grips with a Hogue grip on it.

So now all I gotta do is learn to shoot with my right (weak) eye, with 2 grips while sighting in the BSA laser and red dot. Piece of cake ~ right? :devilsidesmile:

Thanks again and will let you know the range report.

If you are careful with it. It won't stand up to hard use. Mount a grip then put some side to side pressure on it and you will see what I am saying. I would like to see someone make some aluminum Picatinny rails to replace polymer ones.
