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.

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

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

I have been trying to figure out why they are 2000 dollars and cant be bought by civilians. It boggles my mind.

The training that comes with it. The IR LASER is NOT eye safe. If you left it on without the filter, you could potentially burn somebody's retina causing blindness.I know we actually had to read and sign a paper confirming we knew the risks of using them.

Besides, if you don't have NVD's, what's the point? Just go with a Lasermax and save yourself the money.

all of the users in my unit were on a list that allowed them to use the peq/paq ir lasers.

they are not illegal to own just almost illegal to buy
