WOO WOO!!

Lumpy and I have been chomping at the bit for this for a good while now.

oooh, I'd better watch this (and I second the interest in an AR-10 FF tube too)

Those look nice!

+1 on the AR10 FF rails!

Hey, how about a version for those of us with standard Surefire or other 1" diameter lights mounted in rings? Looks like this layout would work well for that too...
Link Posted: 10/30/2004 12:03:37 PM EDT
SWEET...

And I've to this poor lonesome M952C that's ARMS throw lever did not take Afghan too well

M900 series needs a replacement. The ARMS throw lever is an easy drop-in replacement (2 allen screws?) for the dual thumbwheels, so a LaRue mount shouldn't be too hard to make.

I asked ARMS about something like this about three years ago. I ended up using a GG&G offset on the SIR because I couldn't reach the push button. I can with a KAC or like model, but this would make it alot easier.

Now all I need is a Surefire.

Can we get some up-close pics of the mount with and without the light attached? It is hard to see what is looks like when it is attached to the gun.
Link Posted: 10/30/2004 8:02:20 PM EDT
I can't tell for the pics, but would this cause a problem for turboheads? I've got a 971 (thumbscrews) and the first row of fins are right on the rail (DD9.5FSP) I don't want the light any farther forward, since it is placed based on my VFG preference.

I'll test it out if you want to send one to me (I'll send it back after testing, honest!)

I am waiting for one myself.


I took the ARMS mount off a M900 and it appears to be identical to the #17 shown ARMS' website.

This is total crap. I hate Larue.

Not because they don't make quality products. They do. They just keep cleaning out my bank account.

I can see that. I don't have any Larue stuff yet. My stuff (what little I have) is all ARMS, and it works, so I can't see replacing it. But if Larue would make flip front sight/gas block combo like PRI's, but only more affordable, I'd be all over it. I can't use the YHM because I can't get to the set screws (DD9.5FSP rail.)

This looks like it will give the boot to the last piece of ARMS gear I have.

I have seen close mounting before, but since most weapons are used by holding the hand guard and space is required for hands, too close is a big problem. Lights are generally turned on via two methods, tape switch, or the on off button, but issue devices what ever it is, don't interfere with being able to get a good grip on the weapon, not a flash light. Hence a stand off like Shurfire use with the #17 for their military contracts.

LOL or what? You gonna kick my ass??? Even if it isn't your "given" name it is still fitting!

Grant or whatever your name is. 1. you do nothing but promote products you sell, to the extent you make false statements about other products, then when the facts are given, you deny the facts, just jump to attempted contrived personal discrediting attacks. 2. You interfere with anyones response to a members question if you don't like the answer if it's something you don't sell. 3. You consistantly chime in anytime with nothing that contributes a thing, just to antaganize, start arguments, and be a wise guy. 4. You throw mud on anything that may cost you a sale, and make attacks again. 5. There are several folk who don't even bother much with this forum because of you. 6. I try to give honest responses to many subjects that I have an opinion on(when a question is asked). You, well we all know what you do, attack, misrepresent, and this last bit above is just samples of the constant month by month nonsense of trouble you try to stir up. Well, I am not scared off by your vile operations here, and will respond to your nonsense with verifiable facts every time you start to attack me with continuos bs. I have an engineering back ground and lots of weapons and equipment time, and I happen to appreciate ARMS equipment as the US military and many other nations do also. You don't seem to sell that equipment, because you promote certain other things, and make up false statements about what you don't sell. If someone asks a question, and I say look in a copy of the Black rifle 2 book for the info, you chime in and try to discredit the book, even though you admit you haven't even read it. That is just plain ignorant! I didn't write the book nor am I a gun writer, but since that book is the latest of the documented facts on so many questions of interest to the membership, why do you attack the book, has it got facts you don't want the membership to know, engineering from all major military, developers or suppliers, for which you sell non of, as far as what I see you promote?
Kick your ass, you seem to be doing just fine in that area, all by yourself!

BACK OFF Buddy!! I asked first!

I've got the XM tailcap, so the "reach" with the thumb isn't bad (since the button is off-set to one side.) My thumb rests in perfect position. I can see where have a button more towards the center of the light, like the DEVGRU, would make it a stretch. I l don't mind the thumbscrews, because I rarely want to take the light off. But it would nice to do so quickly when I want it off. Those thumbscrews can be "thumbbusters".....

You just can't stop the irresponsable attacks on facts that you refuse to even check out. I'd say you obviously have one agenda, to attempt to discredit anyone that disagrees with your bogus unsupstantiated non factual assertions. Documented engineering and historiocal facts are ignored by you, if it interfers with your sales of something. Go ahead, keep up the attacks on me, you swing at me with bs, and I will just swing back with facts.[ Too bad that you have to initiate this kind of nonsense any time that I say something you don't like. I don't like it and I'm sure that no one else does, but I am not going to let you go ruin my attemts to give the membership verifiable facts. I have never started a thread of any kind, you start them frequently only to promote something your selling, and God forbid that anyone give a different view other than in your promotion.
Good shootin, Jack
