    Weaponlight mount pic thread?

    Added a Streamlight Protac Rail Mount 2, on a T.Rex Arms Lightbar (made by Arisaka), to this 7.5 5.56 SBR.

    I have been trying this setup for the last year. Why? Just trying to keep weight off the front of this thing.

    While I have other lights (X300, X300U, Inforce) the tape switch makes using the Protac RM2 very easy. I also have a Roschworks SL1 which would be the absolute lightest setup with the built in front sight. Just a lot less long range throw compared to the RM2.

    Anywho, yes shooting lefty is harder to operate the light and sure there is more of a shadow being mounted that far back. I have not shot this at night and don't have that ability anymore. If my buddy ends up with 40 acres he said I can come over and shoot at night to vet some of these light options.

    I have a Roschworks SLM1 Id sell you that might help! Its the front sight with a 1 hole for you to add your own light. Ive been using it with a Surefire P2X Fury (discontinued now I think) but the nylon body G2X would fit in it too. It would be more a lot more throw than the SL1.

    Thanks, I will think about it. I sold an extra SL1 a few years ago and probably should have kept it!

    This weaponlight thread is probably not the right place for discussion, but what the heck. So I started down the path yesterday of hardware, what I have, whats out there etc. Then I thought about the "mission" of HD. Do I need 500 lumens to PID a target at the edge of my property? Or is 250 lumens enough for the <50y scenario or in the house?

    Its funny that the older SF scout lights were pretty low with respect to lumens and now people want 1000 or 1500 lumens.

    Back to the SL1, I emailed Malkoff years ago and got a response from the man himself. I asked about an updated head and he said the E1 head might fit if you sand off the anodize. But that is only about a 70 lumen bump.

    Lots to learn from my end. For now, going to install the SL1 and see whats what.

    @Rayrevolver

    Just checking to make sure you received the SLM1.
