Ripper for big players.

I am 6'4" and i do like a smaller gun, but the only thing that worries me is the hpr length. Does anyone know how long it is? I want to be able to wrap my hand around the whole hpr without having my last finger or 2 not having any part to wrap around.

your whole hand will not fit on it unless you wrap your thumb over the barrel.

try one in your hands before you buy it i was skeptical but absolutely love the way the foregrip feels. i'm 6'1" with pretty big hands.

You can always buy a extended reg...provided you found one for sell before it gets sold.

i found laying the gun sideways, and hpr in your palm handles pretty good. You'll enjoy it, if not try to find a voilent reg extended

and im 6'4 as well. try to get a long length tank, like a 70 45 ninja. or a old school 68 45 crossfire

I thought that the short reg would bother me, even after I owned the gun and was practicing with it in the yard. But when I play I don't even notice that the reg is short. If you can try to borrow one for a few games. I've loaned mine out several times and no one has said anything about the short reg

You get used to the short reg.
Although Ive never wrapped my thumb around the reg.

But If you are concerned, call up BLAST. I know they dont make longer regs for the Victory's anymore but they know who does. I asked them and they gave me a number to call, but I never ended up getting one. Im happy with the short one

I didn't really think about my habit of wrapping the thumb over the top of the barrel until people talked about the short reg. When I picked up a Marq6 the other day I noticed my grip automatically went higher with the thumb over or alongside the barrel. The macro fitting on the Marq6 prevented me from wrapping my thumb around anyway.

TLDR - I hold my Victories like I hold Gen1 Marqs. 6'4 with gorilla paws.

I wrap my index and middle finger up around underneath barrel onto right side of the breach area. That way other 3 fingers are around the grip and gives me good stability.
