    SCAR 17S Rail Covers Question

    Considering rail covers for my SCAR 17S and would like to hear/see what brands people are using and why.

    How about this one?

    Magpul XTMs.

    Tried the tangodowns and didn't like them because they had too much play.

    Thanks, IKE.

    How many of them do I need to get? Not really sure about that.

    Have the TD rail covers on a couple 17Ss.





    These didn't have too much play, but your mileage may vary.

    No problem Amsdorf. Two different sizes as the left has a sling attachment point so the short rail cover works fine.

    Got a pair of the Tango Down Scar Rail Covers for the side rails on the 17s.....found them to be too loose....there are plenty of other good options....but if you like them,,,,thats all that matters..I think one of the employees at Tango Down explained the sloppy fit on the SCAR side rail manufacture.

    At least 2 packets.

    I've been using the TD rail covers, and am happy enough with them. 6" on the bottom rail, and a 4" on both sides. When I use a light, I just pull off the left side rail (I run the light with my thumb). I've been considering getting a 2" cover so the remainder of the rail is covered when I run the light. YMMV...
