Ergo Grips Textured Slimline Rail Covers

posted on July 24, 2014

If you've got an AR-15 or similar rifle with a quad rail fore-end, you know how important it is to cover the rails. Not only are the edges sharp, but fire a magazine or two through the rifle and you'll notice another disadvantage of the rail: heat transfer.

The Ergo Grips textured slimline rail covers help mitigate both of these problems, slipping seamlessly over unused rails to provide a soft, grippable surface that won't get hot under moderately rapid fire. The rail covers will also protect your fore-end from unintended scratches and bumps should they occur, and will help minimize noise from movement or inadvertent contact with metallic surfaces.

Available in black, OD green, dark earth, coyote brown or pink. Package of three rail covers. These rail covers are 6.8 inches long and can be easily trimmed with scissors or utility blade to fit any rail section.

MSRP: $31.50.
