View Full Version : barrel mounted light --A1
I would like to mount a G2 Surefire light in the 6 oclock position on the barrel of my superlight (A1 diameter) upper. I will run a tape switch back to the handguard.
Does anyone know of a mount that will work?
I've seen some mounts that will fit onto the bayo lug that have a rail on them.

I don't have a light on my AR yet. I was thinking of trying this rig.
SF has had a bolt on model that does what you are talking about. It was two bent pieces that connected with four bolts. Haven't sen one advertised in a while.
The Surefire barrel mount works just fine.
Just be sure to lock-tite the screws and check your zero after you mount it. I would also keep a constant eye on the screws even though mine has stayed tight after a thousand or so rounds. Just use a piece of bicycle interlude to secure the tape switch to the hand guards. I've played around with mine on both AR's & AK's.

The Elzetta (http://www.Elzetta.com) mount works very well. It mounts to the FSB and will not scratch (unlike most barrel mounts).
Here is mine with Gonz M2 light and a LaserMax Uni on the optional Elzetta pic rail:
