I just purchased both a full set of tango down rail covers and a viking tactical drop down flashlight holder, I did not notice but do I have to cut it in half to mount the FLH? BTW I am using a YHM FF carbine length.

There are some guys that trims it and sands it smooth.

Tango Down is making them in three sizes now according to the thread link below, look at member ARMRER's post.

The sizes are 6", 3 3/4" and 2 7/8".

They are available in Black, USSOCOM Flat Dark Earth, and Olive Drab Green.

"sand it"? are they hard or something, I thought they were rubber-like.

Are there any dealers that are stocking the different sizes? Anyone have a price breakdown? TD's site makes no mention of them...

When you cut them it is best to use a small mitre box and saw. That way the edges are even and they don't get overly dicked up. The sanding is to smooth out the rough cut. You can also round of the outer edges if that matters to you.

Off topic but is that a UMP or a knockoff and where can I get one

Just cut them. I use an exacto and a small piece of medium grit sandpaper. Not hard to do. It's a piece of plastic, we ain't talking walnut stock here.

I haven't seen any from any major sellers at the EE yet.

You could contact SMGLee because he sells them and he's near the factory.

Mitre Box, then lightly Dremel all the cut-edges to be rounded rounded (like the original end).

It'll take you 10 minutes, tops.


Keep the scraps...they come in handy for small places.
You can keep them from sliding around by trapping a rubber grommet between the cover and the rail.
