bounce industry ideas off one another. One evening while brainstorming in the knife shop amongst
Piles of G10 and numerous KeyMod equipped rifles, RailScales was born.

    So, um…. what do they do? Are they just for grip? Cause…. they make this stuff called ‘grip tape’. They also make rail covers.

    • Dave

      +1 Ya gonna tell us how much they cost, what they weigh, this isn’t where’s Waldo

      It appears to be the keymod equivalent of rail covers I think….

      • iksnilol

        I tought one of the advantages of Keymod was that it was lighter and wasn’t sharp like Picatinny, thus making rail covers unnecessary.

        • nova3930

          Those are advantages but the things still get hot. As with rail covers, I don’t think they’re necessary if you wear shooting gloves.

            LOL, the person in the pics is wearing gloves and has the covers on the gun. You don’t get “tactical” do you? Gotta look like an “operator” to be taken seriously.

          • gunslinger

            operators operate operationally in operational operations!

          • iksnilol

            Never thought about that, I usually don’t shoot that much (to heat up the gun that is, try to use every opportunity to shoot though).

          • nova3930

            Down here it can be as simple as just shooting on an uncovered firing line in August. That AL sun is brutal lol.

          • iksnilol

            Isn’t Paracord also an option? I see many people wrap guns, knives and tools with it. Should absorb the sunlight, preventing the metal from heating up.

          • Geodkyt

            Which is great, unless you needed the rifle for real, and didn’t stop to put on your gloves before firing.
            Other than eye and ear protection, I really prefer not to NEED protective clothing for shooting — it’s nice if you have it, but you shouldn’t NEED it.
            Which is why I find people complaining about “sharp rails” so amusing — the HOT rails are a bigger issue, in my opinion. Which is why I use rail covers. . .

    I really, really like the look of those. They also look like they’d feel pretty good on the finger side. Wouldn’t want em on the palm side.

    • sianmink

      that might feel pretty good on the underside if you use a long reach thumb-over grip on a slick rail.
