Besides TM and CA, it seems there are no other, cheaper options for a VN-style M16. I did, however, notice a large abundance of round foregrip M16s out of China, which would save me a pretty penny, but they'd still have the round foregrip.

So I was thinking, I could save myself a bundle (until the Chinese parts crap out on me) picking up an A&K, ECHO 1, or JG M16, throw a VN style foregrip and mag onto it, and have a semi-accurate replica (IIRC, the VN-era M16 didn't have a detachable carryhandle, among other things).

Basically, the question is if such a foregrip exists, and cheap enough to make this project economical. This project won't get off the ground until I get a little more cash into the bank, but I figure it's best to know now.

Check out the Accessories sections of Redwolf Airsoft and WGC. I would imagine they may have something for you.

Wow, ECHO 1 is really throwing replicas out there. I notice GI just listed a M14 by them, too.

What's ECHO's reliability like?

Actually, if you want to have a high-quality, full-metal model, you can save you money and get this.

WGC Custom M16VN US$230.00

Of course, shipping would be expensive, but considering your options, this is the best.

They carry a short-term warranty, but I have not seen any objective data that reveals if they replicas are worth the money or not.

On the more wild side.
You saw my M-16 at the op right?
I did take a genuine A1 fore grip, dremeled down the ends to fit, and bam!
An M-16A1 quicky!
