Qustion to other ARFCOM members, is anybody using the LaRue Tactical offset SureFire light mount? I am looking at either LaRue or Yankee Hill offset angle ligt mount to lower my light just a bit lower. I am currently using a Tango Down vertical grip in conjuction with a SF 951 6 volt light.
If anyone got any good pics to show I would appreciate it. TIA...556fmj

I just ordered the LT mount for the Surefire from Grant.
I just got a Dieter grip for my A2 Carbine and the ARMS mount is uncomfortably high since I'm scrapping the Surefire tape switch. I'll use the Dieter grip tape switch pocket for the OTAL, and activate the Surefire M962 with my thumb.
I wonder if Mr. LT would consider a special run of "left handed" battle lights for us left handed shooters out there that want to keep the bottom rail open for a bipod mount (like his).

Here's some shots of the YHM mount.

That doesn't look too bad at all.
I have a YHM angle mount, I'll have to try it on my A2 carbine with the Surefire and Dieter.
I used it before with the TD tape switch rail cover but really didn't find it to give me any advantage over the 9:00 mounting.

Thanks for the pics. Is the SureFire held in with the throw lever or the thumb screws? Which Yankee Hill angle mount did you use? Is it the 3 or 5 slot?

No problem.

It's a three slot. I got it with some other stuff, thinking I'd never really attach it.
It surprised me how how much I like it...The push-button lines up with the tip of my thumb perfectly and casts less of a barrel shadow with it further form the rail.

also,
the light has an integral ARMS throw lever.

Here it is for a lefty like me, works really well and the ARMS throw lever (underneath) barely clears the Dieter grip by -0.25mm.
I got this 5 slot angle mount and thumbscrews from Brightflashlights when I was experimenting around light and tape switch positions.
I finally came into the 21st century (difficult for an old guy like me) and got a verticle grip for the carbine from Rusty at DSGArms.com.
With the light set pretty far back, it's really easy to strobe the light with your thumb while maintaining controll of the weapon.
Many thanks mfingar, I had forgotten about even having the angle mount.




And the complete weapon.

Not only does the LT mount offset the light, but it also gives you 4 positions for mounting the light. The YHM does NOT give you these options.

That's right, the LT is a better mount, hands down.

Plus it's easier to remove than the "tight as heck" ARMS mount for when you put the rifle in the case.

That's just one more reason why I ordered one from you the other night.

many thanks

I have the LT on my SF961. It is the most ergonomical mount I have seen. Positions the thumb perfectly.

Grant, got the LT mount today, thank you and Roxanne for the super fast service (as usual).
