FS2000 tri-rail fore-grip

Anyone have one of them from that short run? I would like to eye ball it for a week or two.

If there is a volunteer please PM me. There will be some form of reciprocity.

Hey, Jay

I got one for you to look at. Send me a PM with a mailing address and I'll send it over.

What you thinking of doing with it? Curious . . .

Hopefully making their own version of it - one that will actually make it to open market :D :monkey:

What I've shipped to Jay is actually the V2 Monolith version, and it looks great. Too bad I don't have a picture to share with you all.

One suggestion I have to improve on its functinality is to have the bottom rail made a little longer so you can add a laser/light attachment (like a TL1, TL2, Lasermax, etc.) to a foregrip. As it stands only one or the other will fit on it for now.

The side rails have adequate length on them to attach all sorts of other functional goodies as required and as budget will allow. For now I've installed rail cover on them and it works quite well as a natural hold. My only criticism of these side rails is that they're a little wide. It'll get even wider as you attach additional goodies. Fortunately for me I have large hands, but it may be a challenge for those who have smaller hands. Altogether though I'm mostly happy to have rails at all on this fine weapon!

Jay, I look forward to seeing your version as it evolves, and BTW +1 for taking on this project. :thumb:

Ditto, if you get a production run going count me in.

I would also get one, though, I would prefer the P90 style fore end. Still, I wouldnt turn down the tri-rail ;)

Got to handle an FS2000 yesterday while buying another AR15 lower. I like. The poor guy that was picking it up couldn't take it home because the idiots at LANWORLD put on the fixed mag thingamajig, but forgot to lengthen the rifle to over 30". So he has to send it back.

They are really, really fun rifles.

I can't wait to see what Jay comes up with.

I have been listening. The rails will be removable to suit your wants. Also the lower rail will be a little longer then the Mono. version. That seems to be the biggest issue with those who have them.
