Poor mans' DW foregrip...
 
$18 worth of CF tubing and a "borrowed" fitting from work (with a bit of grinding), plus some contact cement...

I've got enough tubing for a couple more. I meant to drill out the fitting more to save weight but got impatient.

That looks really good actually. Be nice if you could find something to plug the bottom but I like it!

Yeah thats the plan too. a hard rubber end cap and maybe some sort of rubbery grip strip on the front side.

How about gluing in a screw-in mount, so that you can put all sorts of stuff on there?

do paintballs fit in that tube at all?

nice job, also seems like it would be a little more comfy than the cf grips that are about as thick as a roll of dimes...

Very nice. Wonder if you cold mill down a remote adapter fitting to fit inside and make it a psuedo gas through?
