Little Did I Know

You can also file this under Government Waste.

Every M5 RAS shipped to the marines came with:

1x Upper Rail.

1x Lower Rail.

3x 11 rib rail covers.

2x 9 rib rail covers.

1x 6 rib rail cover.

2x 5 rib rail covers.

1x vertical grip.

Sourcing this from KAC commercially gives a grand total of... $456.49.

And I've seen this package on Gunbroker and Arfcom's EE for $250.

But why is it a waste?

Start looking for pictures of them in the field.  Most of those spiffy rail covers are left in some supply or arms room.
