The Mako Group sells a lot of products
and accessories for rifles, shotguns, and handguns. Much of
their wares are suitable for attaching to a rail on a rifle
forend or handguard. A couple of those products are shown here.
I have been in possession of these vertical foregrips for a
couple of months now, but have set them aside, as I usually do
not like to attach things to my rifles, other than a good scope
or other type of sight. However, these two foregrips from Mako
are pretty useful items. Both serve as a vertical foregrip on
weapons such as AR-15 rifles and also on pump and semi-auto
shotguns that are set up for fighting. I don’t think that you
will see these on the skeet range attached to a fine English
double gun, but on a fighting shotgun, or even a turkey gun,
they could be a useful addition. A vertical foregrip is
sometimes more comfortable to use on a rifle or shotgun than a
The two foregrips shown here serve double duty.
The Tactical Foregrip & Bipod does exactly as the
name implies. The foregrip contains a bipod within that is
deployed by pressing in on two buttons. The legs have multiple
positions for use on uneven ground, and there is a limited
amount of swivel in the base to level the weapon. In use, I
found the bipod to be very functional, and the foregrip to be
very comfortable in use as well. The Tactical Foregrip with
one inch flashlight adaptor is also a dandy little device.
It makes for a very comfortable grip, and has a trigger to
activate a flashlight such as the Surefire that has a
button switch on the end. The flashlight is activated by
pressing the trigger, or it can be locked into the “ON”
position by simply turning the flashlight clockwise. There is a
safety button so as to not accidentally activate the light.
Both of these foregrips attach to any standard
Picatinny rail, and add only about one-half pound to the weight
of the weapon. The foregrips are made of a hard plastic, and
appear to be very durable.
