Does anyone have a pic of the rail covers that come with Surefire four-rail handguards? I remember seeing some rail covers that look like the magpuls but nicer and I'm pretty sure they were Surefire. Thanks.

They are like the ones on the right-

I know they're ladder type rail covers but the ones I'm looking for are designed differently. I'm pretty sure they're Surefire's.

SUREFIRE uses the ERGO ladder rail covers...

Yeah, Surefires have a depressed area running straight down the center from one end to the other.

Found a pic, anyone know where I can get some without buying the whole rail system?

They're different from the Ergo ladders. They have an indent in the center and are made from a MUCH softer material. The Ergo's are pretty stiff, the SF you could almost tie in a knot. I just sold mine on the EE, here's a pic.

that's what I was trying to describe?

Are they TOO soft? I think they look a lot nicer then the ERGO ones but don't want them falling off my rifle. Any input?

They're soft rubber as opposed to the hard ass rubberish plastic you see. They fit tighter than an 18 yr old HS senior.

Thats definitely not some of the 18 year old girls around here, lol.

As for the Surefire Grips, i really liked the fit and the texture alot better. I'm using the Magpul covers and they do a fine job for me, since I'm not going to be gripping them at all and I use a VG.

They're very soft but they aren't going anywhere. They fit the rail in a different way than the Ergo's. The SF actually sits down in the grooves instead of running along the top. Once they're on they're not coming off unless you PEEL them off.

Thanks guys, looks like I'll be shooting an email over to Grant for a pair.
