    I use the Vltor Scout Mount on my MOE Handguards. It holds my 6p at about the 9:30, position.

    That looks like a better option for me.

    The Vltor works well. But I think I would like the light a little farther forward. Like this one;

    I just got it and am very happy with it.

    Love the forward position and how closely it mounts to the guards.

    I've been using this mount with a Surefire G2 at 1 o'clock (using a MagPul bolt on rail):

    It's inexpensive and lightweight but I am exploring other options. The only thing I definitely didn't like about the Viking mount is that the inner sleeve is a bitch to get out without scarring it.

    I was using the Midwest Industries FSB rail with a VTAC mount. It worked, but positioned the light too high.

    I have since went to using a MOE hand guard with the IWC mount-n-slot light mount. This positions the light (Surefire G2x) at the right location for my off hand thumb. When I look through my Aimpoint T-1, I don't see the light in my field of view. The mount is solid yet simplistic in it's design. I am currently using this setup on my Patrol Rifle at work. Put a dab of blue loc tite on the threads when installing the mount and you're good to go.

    I was shocked when I first tried the MOE hand guard. I really like the things. For a non-free floating hand guard, it's hard to beat the price of the MOE. For mounting a light to the MOE hand guard, I'm totally sold on the IWC mounts.

    I have one of the Impact mounts also and have had no problems with it as of yet. Good setup.

    Take a look at the Elzetta ZFH1500 mount. YMMV

    Works great with SF 6P and MOE handguards.
