As posted last night I will talk about the fore grip light laser sold by DP12,  this email was sent to them after talking to them today again and they are very aware of what they have done.  All for the worry of a dollar. Besides all of the complaints they still sent this back to me knowing it is bad.  Do you smell Americas favorite past time, Lawsuits.  Some body is going to get hurt for real here.  If you have one of these I would be careful and repair it right or ask for a refund.  Just think when you are out blowing everything up and family and kids are having fun and in the heat of blowing up soda your grip fails and hand fly's of and in front of gun barrel or in this case barrels, hey kids watch the exploding hand !  A good way to spend the afternoon.  I will post pictures later when I figure out how to do it.  I will also enclose pictures of single point sling mount.  It is really thought out well if you need a auto burger picker and want nose hairs plucked for that is where it is at.  Unbelievable.  I do not ever see me using a single point sling but I want the option.  I will build me something soon.  Forgot in the manual it states not to change the foregrip because of the danger and they send me one that has no faster.  Ok now for the DP12 email, you be the judge, am I a dick and expect to much or is it crap.  Pictures tonight.

To Standard Mfg.

Reference; Foregrip problem

First I want to say I have been in touch with *****  and she has helped
me the best she could.

I now have over one month trying to resolve this problem.  I returned
this fore-grip for there was no retention on the grip floor plate, it
was returned to me Friday afternoon 6-3-16.   Right away I saw a
Phillips fastener and thought it should have been the spring ball like
the Crimson's but  I said oh well a good mechanical fastener is fool
proof.  Boy was that wrong.

Well, that fastener went into a hole with no threads and is much
larger than the fastener.  This allows the floor plate to move a 1/8"
in either direction. The only thing holding the fastener is 1/32nd of
plastic, I'm a very mechanical guy and I was floored to see this.
Standard MFG sends out a known defect, a 1/4" bolt going into a 3/8"
hole with no threads, what the hell?  With the pumping motion and
recoil along with a total of 1/4" movement how long will 1/32nd piece
of plastic will it take to fail  and floor plate to come off.  Then
the grip will fail and you have a big problem there.

You now have a fore-grip that will fall apart inches away from a
muzzle that can and surely will blow someones hand off.  Did any body
check the problems and lawsuit to KelTec for the fore-grip problem
blowing a hand off ??? !!!!  Just to save some money ?  If I was DP12
I would recall every one before you are up your ass in lawsuit for
that is what Americans do.

Instead of trying to save a dollar I think you will find that a person
who buys this gun will spend the money for a quality product, I sure
would.  That is your selling point is a quality build, then this crap
is what you put out.

I'm sure you have bought a container full of these and the fix is very
simple and would cost less than a dollar.  Use a EZE Lock insert, much
like a HeliCoil, a bottoming tap and for a dollar you can salvage
these and save a big problem and restore your repetition.  For most of
your accessorizes are crap.  It will hurt you in the long run.
Another badly thought out item is the single point sling mount.  With
buckle and strap it is on your nose, Really, who thought of that one.
I will build a better mount for myself and I was going to build a
switch in the fore-grip if I kept it if you had fixed it right.

I really liked the idea of this fore grip but I will not trust it even
when fastened proper for what is the rest of the build like.  This was
a very bad decision on DP part.  So I requested a call tag for return
and a full refund.

Like I said I have a month in this, now with phone calls, emails,
pictures and now waiting for my money refunded is shameful on your
part for sending these out knowing that was a problem.

I expect a refund ASAP !

Most closing say Thank you but I will not for I'm pissed off.

What do you think of your grip ? Have you checked it ?  Am I a dick or not ?

As you will see there is fasteners on the top, why bother with threads there or in fact on the whole gun. Just stick a bolt in with no threads, why spend the time to tap threads.  As with my never used Eotech that is a defect, my new S&W 357 that blew apart on the first shot and this foregrip, everything is crap.  All this in the last two weeks !!!!

Did it break off and then you shot your hand off while using it??   Hard to follow your posts. 

I think I understand as the fore grip was an accessory from DP 12.  If you want to contact them go to their face book page. They usually answer.  This board has no relationship with Standard.
