Mesa, Arizona – November 15, 2021 – Walker Defense Research, LLC (http://walkerdr.com/), announces the immediate availability of their patent-pending, NILETM Rail Covers. What used to be limited to custom handgun frames, NILE rail covers offer the unrivaled gripping texture of silicon carbide for your M-LOK handguard rail. Beyond the aggressive grip offered by silicon carbide, NILE covers are engineered to resist heat transfer while still being ultra-lightweight and minimalist in profile, adding virtually zero bulk to your handguard. As is the case with all firearms components and accessories manufactured by Walker Defense Research, from the M-LOK T-nuts down to the screws and silicon carbide itself – NILE rail covers are 100% made in America, with pride.
“Our NILE rail covers offer the shooter an unparalleled gripping surface and excellent thermal resistance in a slim, ultra-lightweight profile. Silicon carbide is inlaid, by hand, into each rail cover to provide an aggressive gripping surface. The textured area is slightly recessed into the cover itself to lower the chance of unintended snagging on nearby items such as clothing, yet once the shooter’s hand engages the rail covers, they experience a very secure grip. This allows us to keep an extremely thin profile, so we avoid adding any bulk to the rail.” said Drew Walker, owner of Walker Defense Research.
The name NILE stands for (N)on-slip (I)n(l)aid (E)lement, and the rail covers are currently available in three sizes (1, 2, and 3 M-LOK slots lengths) and are slim enough to be used on a 7-sided M-LOK handguard rail. As for being minimalist and light weight, the rail covers themselves, without screws and T-nuts, weigh in at between 2 to 9 grams depending on their length. Each size is available in 3 or 4-pack quantities, but because each shooter utilizes their rail space differently, a custom combination option is offered allowing shooters to select exactly quantities of each desired length at www.walkerdr.com/nile.
