Yea, I thought the Venomous designs foregrips would be as light as the old deadly wind ones but they are actually much heavier. I'm no machinist so I'd have to get someone else to shave it down for me.

What do you mean "fin" the valve. I've never heard of that and can't find anything about it.

And on the lighter marker, way ahead of ya
This one I didn't build from scratch tho, got it off an MCBer and changed some stuff around.

Send spider! a PM about it. He machines fins into the valve... Mostly so that the valve can absorb heat for co2 use. But obviously it's lighter.

I was commenting about meat on the rail... But I guess you could lighten the forgrip too. Those DW foregrips come up for sale here occasionally.

Could also go to CCM mini macro fittings, too.

Someone suggested using the old stock carbon fiber frames. Those are a lot lighter. And if you're using RT, you're not giving up rate of fire... AND you're gaining a faster aimpoint through better ergonomics.

I miss her! I would have never sold her if I could have found out what was wrong with her. I tried multiple regs, bolt kits, board etc. When you told me a new reg fixed her I almost plopped. Tossed all my extra (bad) regs out so that doesn't happen again.
