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.

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.
