If you are thinking about purchasing a Magpul AFG (Angled Fore-Grip) you may be wondering what's the difference between version 1 and 2. Well here's a pretty straight forward comparison…
As you can see in the above photo the AFG1 (Flat Dark Earth) is slightly longer than the AFG2 (Black). The V1 is 5.5" long while the v2 is only 4.7" long.
The width of the V1 is only wider in the foreword section where the sides of the AFG come up and over the rails a bit. The AFG 2 lacks these "wings" and definitely feels slimmer in the hand as a result.
Other than that the Magpul AFG1 and AFG2 are identical. Both are well suited for the AR15/M4 weapons platform, however the smaller size of the AFG2 allows more options for smaller weapons systems that may have limited rail space.
Both feature a polymer three-piece design with an interchangeable finger shelf that allows for a flat "A1-style" surface or an "A2-style" finger nub. All mounting hard wear is included and both AFG's are made in the USA. Get yours at uscav.com today.
