The Magpul M-LOK Rail Covers lock into place with a second rectangular plug that provides a near seamless surface of contoured textured grip. In my experience, I’ve found that just grinding the center section pillar can make these rail covers fit where gas blocks limit clearance. As you might expect from Magpul products, they sit barely over 1/8th inch above your rails and use snag-free designs to cover them more than most other options out there! For about two bucks per unit for custom colors on an AR build is has never been so affordable or functional!

I was looking for a creative way to spice up the look of my rifle, so I decided to paint it in one color. But there are 125 different colors available and four sides on which you can attach rails covers – that equals 240 possible combinations! To narrow down this lengthy process into something more manageable, I picked my favorite color (black) then chose from among five other popular options: flat dark earth, grey, olive drab green; or pink if I wanted something brighter instead.

The panels come six per package, each weighing less than an ounce so covering three sections will only add 2 ounces total!

I mixed and matched variations of colors for the M-LOK Rail Covers. I thought about the pros and cons as well as what people would think when they saw this scheme, but in the end it was really hard to choose just one color combo because all of them looked good!

A few weeks ago I got my hands on a set of Magpul M-LOK Rail Covers. These rail covers are designed for the unique style and function that is required by modern weapon systems. The traditional school way to cover up rails was with foam, PVC pipe or some other form of soft material but these materials would wear out quickly as they were being shot over again and again in training environments while you actually deployed weapons on them during combat situations; this led soldiers fighting in Afghanistan not only having their equipment’s reliability compromised due to unnecessary wear from handguards because it made sense why troops would want something that didn’t disrupt movement when reloading rounds into an AR 15 rifle, but also had significant psychological effects since troops felt like they couldn
