    Very useful information crossgun, thank you. I like the idea of no cables or extra failure points so I think I'll keep it simple as you suggest. Only sad part is that there won't be much ability to use the visible green laser in conjunction with the light, unless it's just kept on, but I guess aiming is what the NF NX8 will be good for.

    How to set up a rifle:

    1) Attach iron sights. If no irons are to be used, attach primary sighting system.
    2) Define your natural point of aim. Zero irons. If no irons, zero primary sight.
    3) If irons were zeroed, attach optic if it will be used. Without adjusting length of pull or natural point of aim, set eye relief appropriately and zero.
    4) Attach light. It should be positioned where it is both intuitive to operate and does not disturb your NPOA.
    5) Attach laser. It should be positioned where it is intuitive, does not cause splashback from sights or light, and does not interfere with your NPOA.

    You have now set up your rifle to work with your specific body mechanics.

    Too many people copy and paste setups that end up doing nothing but hindering them because it interferes with their natural mechanics.

    Good luck to you, OP.

    Guess I am a little confused about ability to use vis laser with white light? Why not? What am I missing?

    Well the TAPS would allow the laser to be slaved to the light so they could be fired simultaneously, but if you’re just using a tail cap then you’d need to keep the laser on with the MAWL’s 2 minute constant on and use the flashlight at will. I guess if you’re not using IR, there’s still gonna be some ambient light, so your laser isn’t gonna be tracing a line right back to you for everyone to see.
