Lv1.1 foregrip for GEO?

Wondering if PE is planning to release the new one piece design front grip for the GEO3.1, 3.5? I've had issues in the past on a LV1 with the bottom part swiveling and breaking the "tabs" off the lower section. So this is something I would be very interested in getting for my 3.5.

I really hope they do come out with this one piece grip. But, if they don't, just use hockey tape. It works great on my front grips.

To answer a couple of questions: the new foregrip will be available for existing LV1 owners. As will the new bolt tips. In fact, the bolt tip is now just the same as the GSL, Geo3.5 and Etek5 tip. It picks up the ball better and prevents roll-back into the face.

The Shaft Pro Tip will be available to buy seperately too. This tip has been designed with the aid of some of our top Pro players (hence the name) such as Dave Bains (hence why you have sen him shooting the prototypes). they requested that we removed the troughing from around the porting as this can fill up with paint from bunker rub and then drip into the inside of the barrel and effect accuracy. We took the opportunity to change the porting too and re-style the outside.

The one feature that is not retro-fit to the LV1 is the new larger LPR chamber. That is because this is an intrinsic part of the body, and not a component that is bolted to the body. As such it would require a new body to implement it.

Here you go.

Yes I read that, but the Geo has a different shaped top than the lv1 grip. So I would assume PE would have to make a one piece grip specific for the Geo. Hence my question.

The (existing) grip kits are sold as "LV1/Geo3.1/GSL" kits, so if it'll fit the LV1, should also fit the Geo without issue.

Yes. This is what I was talking about. So if it's now a one piece grip, PE would have to make them specifically for the geo. Was just asking if they intended to do so.

Bumping this.

Now that the LV1.1 is released maybe someone from PE can chime in about a one piece GEO foregrip?

I know that ANS posted a picture of a Zach Yachimic Geo 3.5 with a one-piece foregrip on Instagram and it looked like it fit well, not sure if it was from an LV1.1 or a new Geo one though...

I wonder if that was a lv1.1 grip or if it was a geo specific grip. I know the color grip kits that are sold for the lv1/geo come with two different top sections to fit both markers. That's why I was under the assumption there would be a need for a different grip for each marker.

Looks like planet has been shipping the one piece fore-grips with the 3.5's....

I also notice a colored AT pipe.

Hi Bilbo,

I'm afraid that's either the lighting in the picture, or whoever owns that gun has done something themselves. We have only offered coloured AT-Pipes on the GSL etc.

Thanks
