Havent seen much love for the folding/collapsible MPX stock here. I have all three stocks (thin folder, sliding MP-5 style, folding/collapsible) and quite frankly, this one makes the most sense to me from a use standpoint.

Well, I ordered the A3 Tactical VFG that was posted a few pages back. The good news is that it's a nice piece, and is well made. Unfortunately for us folks with K size guns, it won't work.

You can see in the pictures below that the K size handguard doesn't have enough keymod holes to use the A3 grip, without doing some serious modification. The only way to make it work would be to forgo the aft mounting screw and flip the bolt around through the keymod hole in order for everything to line up. Unfortunately, this also requires a longer bolt, grinding down the protrusion on the top of the grip, and using another smaller bolt in the front mounting hole.

Of course, not being able to net let it go, I opted to file on the locator button so it fit, then bolted the vfg on using bolts through the keymod holes.

Can you post some pics of what you modified? I'm in the same boat and really want to use this grip. What kind of bolts did you use?

Thanks, Tom

Tom, the first image shows a semicircular button on the top of the grip that fits into a keymod hole to prevent fore and aft movement. The area shown in red is what I cut away so that it would fit, because it ends up at the forward end of the slot when mounted this way.




The original bolt is 3/16-24 and is 1.5 inches long. When mounted the way I've done it, I needed to use a 3/16-24 x 2.5 inch bolt, which I bought from home depot for 35 cents or so. You could get away with two inches, but you don't end up with enough thread to fit any washers and still engage the nylon threading on the nylock nut that comes with the vfg.

In the front position, I ended up using a threaded post and a phillips head screw that had come with a blade tech tek-lok. After I had it all together I colored it black with a paint pen. Flat black would have been more preferable, but I didn't have any on hand.

I was able to get mine to work without grinding down the tab. It fit flush with the end of the hand guard. The front keymod attachment fit perfect. I just drilled a hole just big enough to thread in the back screw into the handguard.

Omega 9k is 4.7" and I will know how it sounds and fits in the gen 2 hand guard Saturday morning.

The shop is having a shoot so I loaded up some powder puff loads and can't wait to check it out. Probably do a barrel chop once the suppressor is finally released to me.

.


Shooter are you ready!.....................Standby!.......

When I ditched the arm brace and SBR'd I went with the collapsible, but I do like that folder you have shown there. May have to reconsider.


Risk the consequences of honesty...

Finally getting my MPX the way I want it. Midway finally got more SB tactical braces in yesterday so got that ordered along with a Magpul RSA QD and sling. My Larue mount for my T1 just came in too. Love this thing.

I managed to find a SB Tactical brace but I still need a QD attachment and sling. What sling are you using with your setup?

I went with the magpul ms4, although there are other very nice slings out there that will work just as well. I have previously used an ms3 so I am used to magpul and how they work which I think helped sway my decision to use magpul stuff.

I just bought the same sling. Works great with the Magpul QD attachment. Thanks for the suggestion.

I was ringing a man-sized silhouette with my MPX with 1x Vortex Spitfire and AAC Ti-Rant .45 today, at 200 yds!

I have been very happy with this gun. That is all.


When life gives you lemons, put them in the freezer for a few hours, and throw them back, 'cause they're like rocks, man.

Wow. $1900 for mpx-k with arm brace on GunBroker. This price increase sucks.
