    LS front Grip

    Post  camo1010 on Sat Mar 10, 2012 10:10 am

    Hey guys,

    After being bored for a while today, I decided the LS needed something more. At first I was going to raid the raider for the primer hand piece, but after remembering that I had the old shell from the LSFG that I blew up (they don't like big springs). So I dis-membered the hand piece and prepped the LS for surgery and started cutting.

    When I finished cutting the bits out to have the handle sitting flush, I used the hack saw to roughen the surface up and prepped it for the awesome loctite 454 to go on. Remembering of course to not stick both sides together, I ran a bead on either side of the shell joint.

    The hand piece:

    The cut-out where the hand piece will go:
    [img][/img]

    The finished product:
    [img][/img]

    I'm going to epoxy the handpiece on as well for more strength.

    Let me know what you think.

    Cheers guys

    Looks nice and clean, but at the risk of being a wet blanket, you're rarely going to need to use the foregrip, as your hands are busy priming and pulling the trigger. It'd be a lot of back and forth for little gain. I can only see this sort of mod being of real practical use when running a linkage back through the shell, making it pump-action primed.

    Sorry, don't mean to be a tool about it, but you did ask for thoughts

    I was going to put the raider's primer and rail on there but it seemed like too much work. I'm left handed and trigger wih my left hand so it I find it quite practical. After all the trigger isn't any good if it's not loaded.

    Don't worry stoph I'm not upset about your comments. I did ask for it... (sobs un-controllably) lol

    I wouldn't dismiss the foregrip as useless though. I am a right hander, I tend to shift my right hand between priming and pulling the trigger, while my left hand permanently holding the foregrip to stabilise the gun. Unless I am using my LS with foregrip which also primes as well, my left hand only just holds the gun.

    Remember one thing though, if you are putting in stronger spring, make sure your LSFG foregrip is attached strongly to the LS gun. In fact I may even add in a few screws to reinforce the attachment on top of just epoxy glue.

    The foregrip doesn't take any pressure. When I reload, all of the force is put into my shoulder. my right hand stays on the front grip.

    That's true your shoulder will take most force when you pull the priming bar backward, howevere there is still some force when you push it forward. The screws are just there for extra reinforcement.

    There doesn't seem to be much force at all when pushing the bolt forward. I think that epoxy should be enough to hold it.

    Sounds like I'm the only righty that uses my left hand to prime a LShot....

    Anyway, foregrip looks good mate. Definitely unique.

    ^ I'm a lefty that uses right hand to prime.. Struck me as odd that someone primes AND triggers with their preferred hand, wouldn't that have a negative effect on ROF? Not a criticism, to each their own

    Count me in on this.

    Not too fond of this mod as I don't fancy dual handle guns (even raider). Just seems a little awkward aesthetically to me but it is a good job none the less.

    I rock the shotgun grip with my main LS.

    I've always used the trigger hand to load and trigger. I grew up on a farm and it was always safety first. If your loading a gun with the trigger hand, then your finger won't be on the trigger. So I have always worked like that. I wanted to go shot gun reload but it's to complicated for my liking.

    Every person has their preferences though

    I have actually done a similar thing. Except I put the grip where the magazines are usually fed. Considering I turned the longshot into a hand dart fed sniper. I found it rather useful, as i can still have room for a maverick integration. But yeah, your's does look rather clean and neat. And I'm a lefty as well, I can see this being rather practical Loving the paint job along with it.

    I like the grip. You can give clunk07 the rep points for the paint job.

    Gotta +1 using the same hand for cycling the action and trigger pull. My front hand just keeps the gun pushed back into my shoulder, *almost* still on target, while the back hand does all the work. Playing a fair bit of FPS too it just feels wrong working a bolt with left hand.

    Ever used a pump-action shotgun?? haha
    I shot SSAA and Big Bore for a number of years, and even if you wanted to, it's damn near impossible to cycle a bolt-action with your left hand (if you're a righty).

    But, yeh, horses for courses.

    I love my Xplorer pump action priming handle for my LS, looks fierce and works well.
    Though I am a Lefty, I fire right handed, primarily because I'm right eye dominant and secondly, because most of the rifles I have used were not lefty compliant. Side effect being that it is easier to prime and reload any given firearm.

    Most guns I have used are suited for lefty's. My uncle has a stash of guns that he has collected over the years since returning from Vietnam. He was a scout sniper (lefty) and he tought me all the tricks.

    But everyone has a preferred method and if it works then that's all that counts really

    I've been lucky to have customised, left handed rifles around when I was growing up. Dad was tight and wanted to keep the casings to reload them and I was rambo and didn't have time to catch them lol.

    When I was doing cadets at school we went out shooting with the austyers, mine was set up for a right hander.... I still have burn scars down my shirt but when its from firing an assault rifle at full auto... totally worth it

    I like the F88, but the genuine Steyr is significantly better, if you ever get the chance try one out do yourself a favour and do it.
