Grip-Pod,™ the vertical fore-grip that deploys a strong and stable bipod at the press of a button. Currently deployed worldwide with military forces and law enforcement agencies including: U.S. Army, U.S.M.C. Navy Seals & EOD, U.S. Army Special Forces, U.S.M.C., U.S. S.O.C.O.M., FBI H.R.T., and unmentionable government entities. Grip-Pod™ has been selected for use on U.S. Army Designated Marksman rifles, and it is part of the down-select for the SCAR (S.O.F. Capable Assault Rifle) project. It offers a combination of advantages never before available in a single accessory. Using the Grip-Pod system an operator can go from a CQB position to prone, and have a stable base for aimed firing in place before hitting the ground. Say goodbye to cumbersome bipods that have to be manually clipped on or folded into position. The G.P.S.™ is manufactured from aerospace materials to exceed military specifications for construction and finish. It mounts directly to Picatinny rail systems, and additional mounting options will be available soon. Patents are pending. The G.P.S.™ system offers the operator a number of advantages including: -Increased Speed -Increased Accuracy -Increased Weapon Flexibility -Stronger than conventional vertical grips -Smaller Than Non-Integrated Solutions -Retracted Bi-Pod Reduces Entanglement Factor The vertical fore-grip is widely known throughout the armies and tactical communities of the world to enhance control, accuracy, and speed of short range /CQB (close quarter battle) target acquisition. This is true for soldiers utilizing all types of small arms (submachine guns, rifles, and light machineguns). Medium to long-range target acquisition requires more precise accuracy, and most if not all, police and military snipers worldwide utilize bipods to enhance their ability to make surgically precise long-range shots. The G.P.S.™ fore-grip allows better performance while moving through faster, more accurate target acquisition, and the G.P.S.™ bi-pod allows better performance while prone through increased stability and precision - Now you can have the best of both worlds.
