stick on gun rails...

Anybody have input on stick on rails? I have an omer excalibur sport 75cm. Not a top of the line gun but besides the cheap shaft it works just fine for my type/skill of diving. I have replaced the metal wishbone with the riffe nylon kind and plan on getting a mako shaft real soon. the only thing I could think of to make it "that much better" is a full length stick on rail, hoping to get just a little more accuracy with longer shots. It seems good up to 8-10 feet of range. Anyone have first hand experience with the rails? Any input would be appreciated. And I plan on getting a nice mako rail gun eventually but for now I want to make due with this one. Thanks!

Re: stick on gun rails...

JBL made a stick on rail that could be trimmed to length, or spliced if necessary. Cleaning the barrel and adhesive activation is key to making the thing stay in place, so read the installation directions CAREFULLY and avoid short cuts.

I've put a few dozen on custom JBL based oil rig guns with good result.

You may be able to swap out the barrel to an integrated rail barrel if the diameters match. Mako sells them starting at $30. Here is the link.

That's a great idea. And I would even get the mako muzzle to go with it and use my trigger. I would almost have the mako gun that I've always wanted lol.
