Black Wood USA’s wood rail panel sets are a great addition to your AR-15, AR-10 or other pistol/rifle with an MLOK or KEYMOD rail. Each rail panel starts as one piece of walnut and is first cut on a CNC machine and then shaped, sanded and sealed by hand. This combination of man and machine production enables the highest level of precision with an unbeatable hand finish.
Our finishing process highlights the natural grain and color of the wood while protecting it to increase durability. This ensures that our rail panels will perform to the modern sportsman/woman’s standards and hold their classic look.
Number of Panels: 3
About The Wood
English Walnut is a classic hardwood that has been used in firearms production for centuries. Its colors range from blonde to dark brown with most pieces having little color variation. The Wood Database rates its Janka Hardness at 1,220 lb.
No two pieces of lumber are alike and neither are our grip panels. We take pride in the unique patterns and colors found in each of our grip panels and know that you'll love the way the wood complements your firearm. Please note therefore, that the pieces you receive may not look exactly like those shown in the images.
About Our Collections
Every piece of wood we use is unique. However, to help ensure that the furniture on your rifle provides a uniform aesthetic, we do our best to match all wood furniture pieces within the same wood type. For example, you can rest assured that our Walnut (or Rosewood, Zebrawood, etc) Stock, Grip and Rail Panels will all look great together on your weapon.
So far I love my grip panels. I attached these to the midwest industries m-lok hand guard on my Marlin 1895 sbl (weathered gray). The panels are holding up well on this cannon and I even sanded them down, stained them a washed weathered gray with some varnish to match the stock. Don't over tighten these - get it just right with a bit of blue thread lock. Thank you!
Great quality and packaged with care.
I was blown away by the craftsmanship on these panels. They fit my mlock and tightened down nice and snug. They haven’t moved on me yet. Very nice wood and they even came with what I assume is a deerskin pouch to store them. They also included a sticker and an Allen wrench for these. I appreciate the little details they thought of. I would recommend!
These are very nice grip panels. They look really cool on a shorty AR variant and keep the hand guard cool while shooting high volume strings. The packaging was nice and added a nostalgic touch.
Not only do the wood M-LOK panels show the high quality of craftsmanship, but the extra touch of coming in a leather holder shows that extra touch of pride.
Rail Panels Installation:
1. Remove rail panels from packaging, leaving the hardware installed.
2. Position each rail panel with KEYMOD nuts or MLOK T-Nuts through the corresponding rail slots and gently turn each bolt clockwise to lock panel in position.
3. While applying light outward pressure on the rail panel, use the short end of the supplied allen wrench to tighten each bolt until snug. Caution, do not overtighten screws!
Care and Maintenance
Your rail panels are hand sealed with multiple layers of penetrating sealant. After heavy long-term use, wipe on a coat or two of boiled linseed oil to protect the surface and preserve the wood.
