HSP calls it something else

http://www.haleystrategic.com/store/mil620.php

It fits both the 95x and the 620 series. The new scouts, the 620's put the mounts in the same place as the 95x. That's a 620 in the picture on the same mount.

You could get the Larue LT-270 for a direct replacement.

I emailed IWC and they said it was this:

http://www.impactweaponscomponents.com/product/thorntail-mil620-offset-adaptive-light-mount/

I would have probably picked it from Haley's site since I want to buy one of his patches, but since I get discounts from IWC I guess I have to get it there.

Thanks for the thread guys, I have been looking for an offset mount for my 952V. I was ready to order the LaRue till I saw this early this morning. the MIL620 seems to be exactly what I'm looking for.

My order is placed and holy cow my year long SBR odyssey is almost complete!

I just ordered the thorntail - should be a great mount.
American Defense also makes a decent drop in replacement mount

Thanks for posting that. I have two of those lights on the way and have been looking at this mount for them. Do you have a shot from the top?

I had some requests for pictures. I had some requests for will it fit kind of things. I apologize for the quality of the pictures, but here you go.

The light is a 952V on the Haley mount. As you can see it will fit on the rail and the head will not hit the rail, no matter how far back you put it. Also, as seen here, the light does not interfere with a folding front sight mounted on the top rail. The KAC front sight takes up a lot of space at the front screw, and is probably wider then most rail mounted front sights. You can see the head clears the sight with no problems.

Didn't know LaRue made a mount for this light. Looks heavier than IWC's, though the LaRue has a better quick detaching system.

Probably is a little heavier, but definitely stout and comes on/off like all LT mounts. This mount also fits quite a few other SF lights, definitely would want an offset mount, from whichever company chosen.
