    Default Ladder Rail Covers

    Looking for anyone that has any experience with these. I need a fix for the rails on my AR from digging into my hand.

    Thanks

    I have them on my shotgun rails. They are good for protecting hands from the sharp rail edges, and I like the fact that they are low profile. They aren't super secure though since they don't lock on.

    I don't have those exact ones but the ones that came with my DD Omega rail look very much like that and cover all of the sharp edges. Nice thing about that kind as you can easily cut them to fit around stuff you have attached to the rail.

    Good for taking the cheese-grater effect out of the rails.

    Not so good for insulating your hands during rapid fire.

    I like them for the top rails. Not so much for bottom and sides.

    The ladder rail covers make it much more comfortable to have a quad rail for end. Like Jeff mine are DD but they all work the same.

    I use Magpul ladders to cover up the top rail space that isn't used, but also use their XTM's and XT's too. There are a million ways you could go with rail covers so try to find what works best for you.
