So does anyone who concealed carries their Five-seveN use a rail guard over the accessory rail (similar to the Beretta 90-two)? It seems to me that this might make it a little less snag-prone. If you do, what do you use? I'm trying to decide if I want to buy one for my new IOM. :D

I CCW my 5.7 every day and don't use a rail guard. Mine resides in a Blade-Tech kydex holster. When I draw the weapon I lift my shirt and when the muzzle clears the holster there is nothing for the rail to snag on. It shouldn't be any different if you use a leather IWB holster. At night my TLR1 light goes on it and everything resides in my night stand.

I've never even seen aftermarket pistol rail guards, like that one on the 90-Two. Do they make them?
Not sure. I was actually just talking about buying a 5-slot accessory rail guard and using that.

I guess you could take a ladder type guard for any AR type picatinny rail and cut it to fit. I don't see the point as the rail "never" touches anything when holstered or when drawing from a holster. Since my 5.7 is my CCW gun and I put a light on it every night before bed, it would be a drag to take a rail guard on and off.
