When WH ran out of 1/2 inch gripmounts, they started using 3/4 inch mounts. I think the 3/4 in grip mount is made of alloy.
The only way to change it out is to remove the barrel!

The steel ones (1/2) will also flex (given enough force), but are the more desirable mount to have.
Unless you are good at gunsmithing, I do not recomend trying to remove the barrel. It is torqued on and is hard to get off (without causing damage to the barrel, or receiver .)
I would wait for another member to verify this, but I think you can use a kahr M1 semiauto fron grip. It is 3/4 inch.

All the horizontal foregrips I have seen with ¾” slots have been GI parts that are reworked. This includes current Kahr production. Keep in mind that the barrel contour is not the same for the semi guns as the SMG’s, a semi foregrip will have large gaps around the barrel if used on an SMG
