I was wondering if anyone here knows how to make RIS rails from scratch, & what materials did you use (i.e. epoxy resin, prefab plastic, etc.)?

I've tried to make a few push molds, but the imprint is so small the resin doesn't pick up the grooves.

Most people go about using pre done styrene strips... I would get a styrene strip that is the proper width and height of the main part of the rail... Then i would get small rectangular syrene and cut it to the width of the main sheet and glue it down to get the grooves, then paint... Tedious process, but i imagine it would have great results...
