Would putting one on the pump make pumping uncomfortable due to it being too low?
the pump is hollowed out with structural support. if i was to drill and tap holes to accommodate a rail, i would fill the grip with jb weld first.
i imagine putting a rail on the pump wouldn't affect ergonomics too much. if anything it might be more comfortable since your pumping arm won't be reaching as far. the corners on the rails might dig into your meaty hands, but most people wear gloves anyway, and it's the rail's problem, not the gun.
