Well, cheap comparatively. Everything on this weapon was found on the EE and generally at a great price.

Anyway, here is my Tango Down Vert Grip, First Samco Light Mount, SF G-2 body, SF Z32 shock isolated bezel, Brightflashlight's pressure pad tailcap and an old assed inner tube! Works like a charm!

I am happier than a pig in shit! (Genuine Alabama Euphemism, TM.)

That's good sh'ite right there! What'd you save, about $300?

Light is good

All of the light related stuff and vert grip was about $120... A bit more patience and shopping around could have trimmed a few more bucks but I am not one to delay gratification.

It works. I like it.

Silly me, and I didn't think anyone from Alabama could spell "Euphemism". Just kidding! Don't come down here shootin' up the place.

Nice gun! What's a Dango Down?

1. Spell check.

2. Whoops! LMAO!

I have nearly the same setup, but I used a M2 HA bezel.

I have the same light setup, and I LOVE it. All I need is a good quad-rail to replace my Fobus M33s now.

Copycat! Just kidding looks great!

Looking good, and the EE is always a great place to find a bargain.

I'm curious as to why you put inner tube on the TD- Did the pressure pad switch not fit the TD's groove? I have a TD also but all my SureFires are "P" cap models.

Nah, the questions I asked you were purely academic.

Well, it fit inside the recess but it sure wasn't gonna stay. I assume the SF pads actually slide in better and fit securely?

Cool setup. Do you not worry about the cord getting hung up on anything?

FiveO,
I am in the process of doing a similar project. I was wondering if you remember the inner tube diameter that you used on the tango down? Just want to save myself a little trial and error.
Thanks

Actually, yes. I am gonna figure some way of securing it close to the rail panel... Perhaps some high tech duct tape if nothing else.

I do not remember (it was left over from my granola fueled college mountain biking days) but the box is in the trash at home. I'll let you know. I warn you the damned thing was a BITCH to get on. You would think a mountain bike tube would be bigger but perhaps a road bike tube is thinner and more easily stretched?

Anyway I'll post it for ya.

Hint: Ranger Bands work very well for this application. They are strips of inner tube (say from a bike) - kinda like fat thick black rubber bands. They are secure, don't melt, can be repositions/removed at will, and don't leave a sticky residue behind.

Let there be light!

What? No duct tape?

Skeeter it is a 26x1.75 A/V

Thanks for the comments, all.

Here is how I have my lights wire tucked away. A piece of rubber fuel line cut lengthwise, slid over the wire, then tucked under the rail panel. It pops right in there between the grip and the panel!

You 'da man! Gonna look into that!

I am in the process of adding a brightflashlights tape switch to my Surefire/vertical fore grip set up. I plan to run the wire inside the handgaurd.

I knew El Cheap-O, El Cheap-O was a friend of mine, and your set-ups ARE NOT El Cheap-O...

THIS IS EL CHEAP-O!
