you could go for a surefire G2 (about $34) or the Brinkman nockoff ($20) depends on how bright you want it to be and how you want it mounted.

I think I am going to mount a Pentagon X3. I already have a couple hand held lights and I want something a little brighter on my rifle. You can get tape switches for them and there are a variety of mounts available. I have read here that they are one of the best values going on flashlights

Try DigiLight. I have not used their products, but they appear to be of quality and reasonable price.

Do you have a rail system or are you needing a mount setup for a rifle with std. h.guards?



I'm kinda going back and forth on whether I want to spend money on a YHM 2-piece railed handguard and then mount the light to that or just go with my std. handguards, saving that money and buying a better light and then mount it to the handguards with those screw-it-to-the-handguard mounting rail piece things. The light will be the only thing mounted forward of the receiver. I've already got a flat top with an optic on it. I'm kinda leaning this way because it will allow me to get a better light with the money I have.

Those Pentagon lights seem pretty nice. They strike a nice balance between quality and affordability. I'll probably go with one of those once I decide on a mounting system. I do like the idea of a pressure pad on/off switch mounted to the handguards.

i'm a do it yourself guy. I went to maryland ar15.com , and used the brinkmann maxfire lx, a very short piece of weaver rail and an old scope ring to clamp the light in. mounted on the hand guard, i'm tickled with the way it came out...that is one nice light for the money,which i have very little of.it's not anti-shock, but so far it's held up...if i have problems with shock, i'll fix that myself too...

Basicaly what I have done, I've replaced the scope ring on this AR with the FOBUS mount, and will eventually replace the light with a surefire. I might replace the weaver rail with a 2 inch piece of picatinny rail to give me a little more adjustment. But, all in all, even with the cheap parts, I love it.



With the Walmart parts its under $45, the expensive way is about $80($15 for rail, $30 for mount, $35 for light)

Get a hold of BrightFlashlights and get a Surefire G2 Nitrolen($35) and there $23 dollar pressure switch. I have that set up and LOVE it and you dont necesarily need the Shock Isolated Bezel.

I mounted my light on a FSB rail mount ($15) and bought a set of 1" Simmons rings from Wal-Mart($10) for a total cost of around $83 Dollars.

Having light where and when I need it- PRICELESS

Guy's,

I know the name brand light mounts are great, but I went to Walmat this morning, pruchared a set of Weaver scope rings, $9. Replaced the cap screws with stainless and installed my trusty 6P in it and mounted to the side of my DD 9.0 rail.

The mount is perfect. I went as far as blue checking the contact made by the rings to the rail and I got a 90% contact, top and sides. It is not loose and it works absolutly perfect.

Am I missing something? I know it is not the same as my $80 DD mount, but from an engineering standpoint I cannot see the difference.
