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?

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.
