I want to mount a Surefire just to the left of the front sight tower on my RRA carbine. I thought I had seen a mount that clamped around the barrel just under the front sight (sort of like the RRA side sling swivel) but I haven't been able to find one like this.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

how much do you want to spend? Surefire makes almost exactly what you are looking for, I want one but it is very pricey.......... you can find them on Ebay cheaper.

Tapco and GG&G make one that mounts on the front sight tower. (I know that's not what you asked, but its close.)

Surefire makes a mount that clamps on the barrel.

Not what you asked about, but you might consider keeping the weapon light out of your field of view.

I would suggest you take a look at this: www.makosecurity.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=SBS&Category_Code=RL

THANK-YOU!! The Mako bayonet lug mount was very close to what I was looking for. It will put the flashlight just in front of the carbine forearm where it can be easily actuated with my left thumb.
I just ordered one.

I received the MAKO bayonet mout as described. It fit very tightly on my RRA carbine. I removed the front sling swivel to get a tighter fit with the set screws. I mounted the Surefire in a Weaver type ring, and it looks like it will work just fine.

Wow, you guys are all high speed. I just used a $5 barrel clamp from a shotgun like this one...
