Four OD Green Firearm Accessories

Wasn’t it just a few weeks ago when I mentioned that FDE is the new black? Well, this week it is OD Green. Inspired by a post on AR-15.com, I realized that ya’ll are a finicky lot, aren’t you? But hey, think about it this way; next week when FDE is back in style, you can just switch back from your OD Green.

ModGear Leg Platform Carrier

Our leg platform is super adjustable. There are tons of options with this thing! With a lot of Velcro, you can change out, move around, or add pouches. There are two pistol mag pouches that will fit 1911 and Glock mags, and two multi-use pouches. The one with the bungee cord is great if you have a radio.

The thigh strap is adjustable to fit, but the platform itself is quite large, so if you have tiny chicken thighs, you might find it just a tad bulky.

In real life, the ModGear leg platform is a much darker green and newer looking than the “worn-in” hipster faded look it’s got going on in the picture.

For a made in the USA good, solid rail that is easy to install you can’t get much better than this UTG quad rail. It is a four-sided, MIL-SPEC Picatinny rail handguard that allows you to mount all the accessories your little heart desires: lights, lasers, scopes, red dots, tactical bottle openers, you know…whatever.

The hard-anodized aluminum means they are lightweight; not to mention the great look they give your AR-15. It includes four rail covers.

  1. When I was building my AR I wound up using Magpull OD furniture, for the best of reasons: When I bought my first set that was all that was available. When I decided to replace the VFG with a Magpul AFG, I got an OD box with a Foliage Green AFG, so I went back to swap it out. The conversation about color-coordinated furniture and accessories took a left turn, and I wound up saying “Does this sling make my buttstock look fat…?”
