    Magpul MOE Handguard + loose vertical foregrip question

    Hello all,

    After purchasing my AR15 a few weeks ago, I've since outfitted it with some Magpul furniture, such as the pistol grip, handguard and vertical grip. One thing I noticed was that after installing the vertical grip, it seems to loosen up after a while to the point that it has a slight swivel. It feels stable enough, but I was wondering if this was normal or if there was something wrong with the handguard/grip or the way I installed it. Anybody have any experiences?

    Thanks!

    Did the VFG have blue loctite on it? I've had mine on my AR for 11 months now and I use it every weekend and it hasn't moved. Maybe you want to add some more loctite? Good luck!

    +1 on the blue loctite. I had the same problem with my optic mount, problem solved.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Never had to use locktite on a vert grip....do you have pictures of the screws/counterplate area on the grip?
