    Surefire Scout M Lok mount that will clear can?

    I'm finally putting my primary 11.5 SBR on a diet, and getting a BCM Mlok 10" rail and a Surefire 300C mini light. Now I need to figure out what mount will clear my SOCOM RC can too, any suggestions?

    Arisaka Inlines should work. They clear my Saker and Omega fine mounted at 45 degrees

    I have an Arisaka 300 mini scout on their inline mount on the 45 of a Geissele Mk8 handguard. It tucks under my DBAL and has plenty of clearance on my Griffin Recce-7.

    No problems. Plus they are locally made near me, so that's cool.

    Turns out the Arisaka won't clear on the BCM rail with the SOCOM- the hump on the rear of the mount catches. Any other suggestions?

    The inline mounts really shouldn't be used in a cantilever fashion. If you move it back a half M-Lok slot, then you won't have any issues with the locking collar on your Surefire can.

    Personally, I don't like anything preventing me from getting a full grip on my Surefire locking collars. Otherwise it's a real pain to get it to unlock after shooting a few hundred rounds when the carbon builds up.

    I tried that initially and couldn't get to the forward screw to lock it to the rail because the Scout body was in the way, then realized "oh yeah, the clicky button screws off... DUH"

    It works great now, thanks! Note to self: wait till you're fully awake before installing any gun parts...
