    Lightbulb Recover Tachtical Grips w/rail

    Saw this yesterday on a Brownell's ad.
    https://www.recovertactical.com/coll...nt=18661627015

    Looks like an interesting way to add a rail to a non-rail frame. Has anyone else looked at these or tried them out? Might be a good way to add a light or laser to a standard frame 1911.
    Thanks.

    We've been aware of this for some time, but M1911.org has not received a sample for evaluation. In my personal opinion, the only potentially possible attribute is that they don't seem to require any permanent modifications to the frame. To me a HUGE downside is that the don't fit standard holsters -- not even holsters from "name" makers that are made to accommodate pistols with rails.

    Personally, I'm not interested.

    I agree with Hawkmoon. I see some advantage for the home defense use, if you want a rail for a light on your rail-less 1911, but that's about it.

    I think there are some holster makers that cover this device, but I'm not interested enough in the product to remember who they are. If you get one, and want a holster recommendation, I could do some research on holster options for you.

    Home defense was my thought as well. I have a rail-less gun that is kept in the bedroom. Having a light or a laser on it might be nice. So I wouldn't really need a holster for it. (Though they do make one themselves.) If I do buy one, I'll let you know my impressions.

    Alternatively, I could always buy a 1911 with a rail.

    I bought mine a few years back when they first came out work's great, defiantly cheaper than welding on a piece of rail to It permanently.

    It also fit my Auto-Ordnance pitbull.

    But there's a much less ugly rail adapter that attaches by magnet. I think it was reviewed in our e-zine a few years ago.

    I did find ramlite they make a magnetic rail & an a adhesive version for alloy frames, you're looking at $80 for one of these through a set of Recover's Is only $50 and Hawkmoon beauty Is In the eye of the beholder I like the feel and look of them......The color meh I was hoping for more Of a dessert tan than "sand" color I got.
    My mistake Recover tactical's are going for about $40.

    Hawkmoon, I found the review you mentioned. Thanks for the lead.
    http://ezine.m1911.org/showthread.ph...light=magnetic
    The manufacturers changed their name to Ramlite, and they sell both magnetic and adhesive rails, and rail/laser/light combo units.

    But they are higher priced, $80 for the rails, higher for the combo units. Guess I've got more options to consider.

    So, I sent an email off to Ramlite to ask whether their magnetic rail would fit on 5", 4.25" and 3.5 inch frames. Got a reply back from Dan Hotchin at Ramlite saying the company closed their doors for good on January 4th and will not be making or shipping anything else. I sure hope nobody here had anything on order.
