View Full Version : Hints for XTM rail cover installation?
I was wondering how the hell do you get those Magpul XT rail covers on? :confused:
What part of the directions weren't clear?
No directions were included....... just the XTMs in a clear ziplock
Not a Mapul XT demo, but this should work for you (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26zAl93ogbg).
You can also use warm water or a hair dryer to make them pliable.
a) my rail covers are one piece XT rail panels
b) no label or literature was included
thanks for the effort Zippy!
They are a real PITA to get on IMO, as are all the covers like that. Like the previous poster suggested, I have found that heating them up with a hair dryer really hot to soften them just a tad really helped.
I started at one end, rocked it on, and just worked my way down.
I really think heating them up makes it a little easier, and a little easier is just what I needed.
I'll try the heat and then resort to the paracord method
thanks to all
Actually a combination of heat and paracord worked like a charm........:D
My sincere thanks to all
