About the VISM Keymod Vertical Grip by NcSTAR
The VISM Keymod Vertical Grip gives you a more secure grip on your rail system. It comes in 3 color options, Black, OD, and Tan. It's a very comfortable and ergonomic grip to help steady your rifle out on the field. It has a texture for an improved and tacky gripping surface compared to smooth plastic that you might find on other grips. The bottom of the grip does two things: it locks the lugs in place for installation and the center core can pop out to reveal storage for a single CR123 or something of similar size. It has a shorter footprint than a standard vertical grip and you can use it as a vertical grip or if you run a modified grip style, you could use it as a hand stop making it more of a reference point for you c-clamp style grippers. Stubby grips are also nice and lower profile which won't interfere with reloads. Some people run a grip on their 3 o'clock or 6 o'clock rail to get a chainsaw-esque grip on their weapon. In airsoft since there is no recoil out of an AEG that requirement for recoil management is non-existent so it might be more for a style consideration.
If you are a light user you might find a grip helps in certain situations too. CQB players like running grips because it allows them to thumb activate their lights and lasers very quickly. You could also route your pressure switch down to the grip and secure it with some tape, making it a squeeze type of activation method. The storage compartment will without a doubt come in handy for keeping the spare batteries to power those devices.
The tool-less installation is a really clever feature that VISM has built into the grip. The keymod lugs on the top is secured by popping the bottom of the grip out and then twisting it. That will put the lugs on the locked or unlocked position. Push the bottom back in when finished to lock and secure everything in place. The steel lugs are extra durable so you can install this item with confidence both for rigidity and durability.
