    Who else hates excessive accessories? Like more than you would use? Opinions?

    And by the way, I've seen a few people with rails on their stocks, as I'm sure a couple of you have as well... and I'm not talking for monopods, I'm talking random rails on the sides and even the top... Why would one do this? It makes no sense to me at all

    Just saying.. we DON'T need another

    Rails on the stock are for external battery boxes.

    Was not aware of that! why thank you! But anyways, your opinion on excessive accessories? It annoys me to no end, and frankly looks cheesy. (personally)

    "Excessive" is subjective. I think by definition we all dislike excessive things on rails because excessive specifically means too much. But how much is too much is going to be different for every person. Do you have a realistic starting point for us to work with to make this discussion even close to meaningful or no?

    I personally don't care as long as each attachment has a purpose. I only find it excessive when I see 4 flashlights on the side of a Daniel Defense rail or in that picture, with the 10+ sights.

    We got a compound eyes hater!


    I personally haven't seen much use for rails except for a grip, I understand a few people trying to replicate weapons used by military units, and those who needs scopes and all that, but not for me.

    Really? Rail covers on the scope rail? Never seen that before. Generally you put rail covers where your hands might go to protect your hands from the sharp rails (airsoft rails are blunt, a lot of real steel rails are quite pointy and cut-y).

    Funny you should say, it's sad because I almost cut my hand trying to mount on my A.C.M EOtech the other day. I'm probably the only person on Earth that would need scope-rail covers.

    Hubba Hubba.....All that needs is an H&K trademark.

    I had a lot of rail covers to drink last night....what can I say, I don't have any optics so I was like meh, I guess I'll try it on for size, I probably don't need the covers over the rails all the way to the front of the rail either but again, I have a lot.

    Also, iron sights might help.

    I generally do have a set of ACM MBUS on, but I just sold all of mine, future ball (they've gotten a bit better before we hate on them) is really small so never felt much need for optics.

    One of the only people, I've actually cut my eyebrow open with my top rail, by loosing my grip when I went to pick my gun up, and it whacked me in the face and cut my eyebrow open. So I might get some rail covers to protect my eyebrows.
