    Scout light mount mod

    After trying every combination of light / mount for my second ACR (soon to be a 10.5" 5.56 / 11.5" 300BLK) I decided to work up a better solution. A few loose measurements, some drilling, and two screws later I came up with this. I mounted the light directly to the starboard forward rail. It pulled the light in tighter. It also allowed me to use a SR07 tape switch at 12 o'clock.

    This will only work with the enhanced handguard. It solves a lot of problems for me and saves a little weight. You could also mount it on the port side with a push button tailcap.

    The good thing about this mod is that it is simple and quick. I coated the bare aluminum with gunkote and loctited the screws (6-32 by the way).

    It also allowed me to move the AFG forward two slots and get my thumb on the top rail.

    Sorry for the poor pictures.

    That was ballsy. I hope it works out for you. The socket heads don't interfer with anything does it?

    Socket heads dont interfere at all. When I go to a carbine length 10.5" barrel I will have to get lower profile screws as otherwise they would contact the gas block.

    Here are some pictures of the full gun...



    and the twin

    What mount is that 6V Scout sitting on?

    Also, where did you get an ATPIAL?

    I custom made the mount for the 620V. There are ATPIALS around for sale now and then. Just make sure you don't buy a stolen unit. The other problem is no warranty, support, or service.

    Looks sharp! Great job of anodizing too.

    Hey SDDUc996, would you happen to know where I can find a good deal on a Surefire SR07 mount?




    Found one on Optics Planet for $80!
    Just couldn't find one before without the XT attachment.

    Nice! That is a very clever way to save some weight on the mount and it looks very clean and professional

    which lights are those? I'm guessing M300A for the smaller/enhanced and an M600C on the longer/basic? Modded heads or stock?

    Love the mouting solution. Have you by chance weighed both your rifles in those configs?
