    Anyone used a flip grip?

    Practical Solutions is starting work on a batch, and I'd like to get feedback from someone who's actually used one. Anyone out there?

    PS join waitlist if you want one

    I have one i don't use .
    You can't use the two stage OEM can and the flip grip together.
    The can won't mount due to the grip.

    I prefer to hang onto the can anyways.
    More controllable and I'm a lefty so i naturally crank it on the gun just by holding it.

    No can and clip grip = noisy and more muzzle rise.

    With that said they are worth the 80 bux. They are well made and built to last.

    I also own one but no lonne.ger use it.
    Cool grip, but after I used it a few times it was just not what I was looking for in the long term.
    Although as a collector of cool mac accessories I like having it in my toy box.
    I always jokingly called it a mac bipod because it looks like one.

    Hey Root, what prevents the suppressor from being used with this? I have a Gemtech Viper I initially thought I couldn’t use with a Practical Solutions forward vertical grip, because the two machine screw heads stuck out where the toothed retention ring needed to be, but I tried leaving the screws out, torquing downs the set screws on the toothed ring to hold the grip against the front of the weapon, and it’s imperfect but works well enough. If the same method would work with one of these, I’d be willing to spring for one to try it.

    EDIT- Never mind, I found the product video and this attaches differently. I went ahead and got on the waitlist as this might actually improve my setup.

    I'll dig out the can grip and M0 for a pic that will explain it better then words.

    I really like mine on the 380. It would be nice if you didn't have to push the button to flip it down, IMHO. Also, your hand might get close to the suppressor. What I wish they would make is one of these closer to the trigger guard and angled, like the Beretta 93R .
