That is the closest I have found so far.

Was trying to avoid having to add a rail at the 9 o'clock and then add a mount.

I found an article for a direct attach IWC mount with a 1913 rail on top. But I have been all over their website and can't find it.

Also picked up right and left Magpul MOE Scout mounts today.

I read that they weren't compatible with the ACR due to vent spacing. But there isn't much difference in the ACR and MOE handguards.

They were cheap so I went ahead and bought them.

If it fits like the IWC mount it will contact the front lip of the ACR hand guard and push the beam left slightly - you can put washers between the mount and the hand guard to fix the clearance issue.

This would seem to be ideal. This was in an article about IWC. It was a recent article and I am assuming they aren't actually out yet as I can't find anything on them.

not a problem. I had read in a few places that the Scout mount would not fit the ACR. And I guess in a sense it doesn't out of the box. But it only took about 2 minutes with a Dremel and it fit perfectly. I didn't alter the handguard any except taking out the tiny rivet on the bottom so I could slide out the heat shield.

Couldn't you just mount a magpul rail section on the vent holes and have the light closer for easier activation?

That's actually where I have it right now. But I have to change my grip to activate it. I prefer my lights to be at the eleven o'clock position so they are easy to access with my normal grip.
