What is the best way ya'll have found to run a 6" pressure switch. I have a M961SU06 on a M73 handguard. Please post pics or email them to me copper.cop@verizon.net

On related matter, which side of the gun do you normally run the pressure switch pad too. Do you normally use your thumb or fingers of the support hand to operate the switch? I have seen it done both ways, but as I am still a novice, I would like to hear the pros here have to sayhug.gif As always, thanks for the info and responses ahead of time

I use a piece of black rubber hose, split down one side, that is pressed in between my panel and railed forearm to hold my pressure switch wire. This way it's tucked nice and neat out of the way!

I embed mine in a layer of black rtv silicone after tucking it in nice and neat out of the way. I learned this from racing snowmobiles to prevent exposed wires, hoses etc. from snagging.
FWIW

Sure, First I route the cable out of the way like QUIB did above, once I'm satisfied with the routing I pull it away from the rifle and lay a bead of black Prematex RTV silicone along the chosen route. I then lay the cable back in the silicone and press it in place using a dental probe. Any tool such as an ice pick, awl, etc. will work. I then cover the cable with a top layer of silicone. If you want to repair, replace or change the cable you merely slice the silicone with a Xacto knife and pull out the cable. The silicone will peel off the rifle if you opt out of the light option. If you have difficulty keeping the cable in place you can tie it down with fish line and cover the cable with silicone like above. Once the silicone is dry you can snip the knot on the fish line and pull itout of the silicone like a stitch. I've had great success doing this, the silicone prevents twigs, branches, etc. from snagging loose wires and breaking switches. Pic to follow asap.

Not it won't. To the best of my knowledge, the TD VG will only work with rails that CLOSELY follow the 1913 Picatinny spec. These companies are Troy, DD, LaRue Tactical and KAC....

YES. They do now. All new production are YHM rails are cut to milspec.

They also work well on the FIRSH, as it is 1913 spec as well.
