    Not sure how it reduces muscle fatigue?

    Not I, the entire concept is aimed at older Service members if I read correctly. While the strain on bicep may be reduced, the increased strain on the shoulder and wrist would seem to be greater.

    My thoughts too. The Scapulae would be under stress as well as the delt and Subscap. With my shoulder, no way.

    I’ve Thought of this exact thing a few years ago, but decided that it’s more gimmick than innovation.

    have had guys wrap 550 cord through the same location and use it as a handle in combat, even had a few that just slapped on a handle to the rails there. But honestly, if the rifle is to much for you to carry in combat, ya arse is probably a bit more out of shape than a simple grip change will fix... YMMV

    I think this thing is ridiculous. I have a bad left shoulder and when I hold my rifle for even a little bit it really gets fatigued. I don’t see how this thing would reduce that. Plus, I don’t want a boulder hanging off my hand guard. Talk about awkward.

    Don't think I could make the conversion although I'd like to try it. It took awhile to get used to the vertical grip I have on one rifle.

    Everyone in the know uses the c clamp. Just don't have your elbow flying in the air like the douche Costa grip.
