Default New equipment on the Arsenal

Recently got around to putting some new stuff on Arsenal SGL-31. Put on a Mako Recoil Compensating Adjustable Stock, UTG Quad Rail, Magpul RVG Vertical Grip, UTG Quick Detach Side Mount, and a cheapy UAG red dot lol. Wasn't originally going to do this. I was originally planning to leave it vanilla, but I liked the utility of the items too much. My next all wood furniture AK will be left alone though

Some before and after pictures

Word of advice.... Those utg rail comers tend to slip of once the rail warms up. So I would be careful with that.

Thanks for the advice. Do you have these same rails or did you hear/read this. And any tips on keeping them on? I do have them on pretty secure with two shims, might have to do a third..

I have those rails. I have not had to tighten them again they stay on really good.... The do capture quite a bit of heat so just make sure all the polymers you put on there are high grade so they don't melt

Edit: where you talking about keeping the covers on or the rails?

I was asking about keeping the rails themselves on securely. I was thinking about doing a third shim but that might be overkill on tightness to the receiver. The reason I went with polymer grips is because I didn't want the heat to transfer to a metal grip. I hope the magpul holds up to the heat.
