    I prefer the short, DQ, Tango Down VFG.

    Normally use it like more of a hand stop than a grip.

    Got a long, would prefer a short. But it came with the gun and I don't see the point of spending the money when I already have something functional.

    I am looking into a vertical grip for my AR also, I heard the magpul RVG was good. I will look into the Tango down RVG also.

    How far up on the forearm do you have it mounted?

    A lot of that depends on the length of the rail, really, and what's most comfortable for you. I like mine to be farther out.

    I prefer my short stubby Magpul one now. I used to use the longer ones, but this one is just aces! :D
     
  12. I have the Magpul MVG/RVG on mine and like it. It works well, and I also use it as a hand-stop rather than a vertical grip.

    I have the troy mil-spec hard-coat anodized aluminum one that in which you can add a spacer to make it a standard length, or take the spacer out for a short or stubby. I prefer the stubby.

    The Tango Down grips support storage of batteries. The stubby will hold a single 123 batter with room to spare - 2 in the full size grip. I believe the Larue FUG will hold a single 123a, along with some of the offerings from Troy and Daniel Defense.

    If your optic requires a different battery (unless its the AA in an Aimpoint M4 or the button cells of the Comp M2/3PRO series), you'll likely need to find a different storage method.

    Mine is on a 11" rail, mounted about 4" back from the end.

    I run a LaRue FUG at the mid length on a 7" rail, use it as a hand stop pulling back mostly.

    If I had a longer rail i'd run the shorter plug and further out.

    I got a Magpul RVG. I use it for more of a hand stop also, I would like to try the Tango Down.

    I have a stubby vertical grip from Archangel. It looks similar to a Tango Down, but attaches in a completely different manner. Initially, I thought I would eventually buy a QD Tango Down after a while, but I think I like the Archangel more. With the way it attaches, the sides are completely smooth and unobtrusive. I know I've read some people complaining about the QD on the Tango Down getting in the way. I also got the Archangel for about $20, although I just noticed it on Brownells for $38.
