    I prefer single outputs as well. The FSB is not an option. I like offsets alot, I run a DD offset on the M4. I dont want another rifle with the exact same set-up

    Fire_Medic,

    Here's a link to pics posted by NickDrak of his 14.5" VTAC Extreme with M300A & IWC's SCOUT MOUNT-N-SLOT.

    IMHO, I prefer the M300A, which projects a narrow, clean beam as far as a 200 Lumen G2X, at half the weight & bulk. Just my opinion.

    The only thng I dont like about the Mini Scout is the 110 lumens. The Z2-S I run is 160. I really want the 160 and up. Is the Mini scout pretty bright?

    Well you done did it now, lol. That looks great and it's exactly what I am looking for.

    Now I need to sell my NIB X300 to buy the mini scout and your mount.

    The M300A is really bright. It's in the design of the head. A couple of weeks ago, IWC drove back to CO from a Machine Gun Shoot in Wall, SD. No moon out, we stopped and did some searching with the 10.5" w/M300A & 14.5" w/G2X Tactical. There was some humidity in the air reflecting off the beams. The M300A went farther, with less side light. I personally liked it better.

    It's a really sweet, rock-solid set-up.

    Just a note on the G2X/6PX suggestions... Im not sure the "Tactical" versions of Surefire's 6PX and G2X lights are safe for weapon-mounted applications. I know the "Pro" versions are NOT. Considering that even the G2X is still $100, I see no reason to opt for one of these over a standard G2LED or 6PLED. Their output is sufficient for defensive purposes.

    I have a G2X Tactical on a VLTOR offset mount, awesome setup IMO.
