WDR NILE Silicon Carbide Rail Panels

Named for its Non-Slip Inlaid Element, the NILE rail panels from Walker Defense Research are lightweight, durable M-Lok rail covers that provide added grip to a rifle fore-end while also guarding against radiant heat emanating off a hot gun barrel.

The U.S.-made panels are molded from heat-resistant polymer and have a recessed section of inlaid silicon carbide to provide texturing.

The company also allows users to order a custom number of panels, so they can get exactly the amount needed without overpaying.

Available options include one-, two- and three-slot rails. MSRP ranges $29 to $56 (depending on panel size).
