These new soft-surfaced highly textured no-slip panels provide the user with a level of comfort and a feeling of security that must be experienced to be believed. This is the ultimate accessory for your rail-equipped handguard. No other product on the market can so dramatically enhance the personality of your weapon.
They have been tested on Oly's FIRSH, DPMS's 4 rail free float tubes, all of Knight's RAS products, and others. They slide on, and are secured in any* slot on the rail by a patented (six ways to Sunday) sliding captured latch.
As an example of the thought and engineering that went into this product, the latch was designed to be pulled out by using either the rim of a cartridge, or the point of a bullet.
They are currently offered in 6 lengths, comparable to Knight's panels. I have cut them with a bandsaw, leaving a clean edge with no propensity to delaminate. The manufacturer recommends sealing the cut edge with Loc-Tite Prism. The coating is resistant to common solvents and UV rays.
The color is flat black. The feel is fantastic. It's comfortable, and secure. The pattern was designed with feedback from Special Forces testers to give the most secure grip even with wet gloves. Everyone who has had their hands on them wants them.
UPDATE: More feedback from the SEAL team in A-stan; "Send more grips. The other operatives are jealous as hell, and we can trade the panels for anything we want!" NOW IN STOCK, with a new price of $18 per panel. I have a limited number of T-shirts @ $12 each.

* The latch will not engage the top rear slot of the M4 or M5 RAS because of the barrel nut clamp screw. The same situation exists on the top and bottom rear slot of the RAS II.
The solution is to turn the panel end for end, because it will lock into any other slot. It doesn't HAVE to be in the front or rear slot.
