I'm going to be taking a class next month in which mounted lights are recommended. I'm hoping to get a rail system in time to fit and rezero my rifle. However, my back up rifle will not have such a system (due to time and expense). So, is there a way to mount a Surefire 6P to a .223 carbine that doesn't require a rail or copious amounts of duct tape? Also, is there a pressure switch/cable replacement for the 6P butt cap?

If you must have 2 lights, get 2 M500 series SureFire lights.

Probably cheaper than a rail, an M900, and however much duct tape you need to put a 6P on the second rifle.

Great folks to deal with on mounts.
I use the mounts for my shotguns and have them to be rock steady and secure.

Hey Buzz. It's underdog from the LF forum.

I have used the Streamlight M3 mount and a cheap scope ring in the past. You can either mount it thru the vent holes on the standard forearm or drill holes in the forearm and mount it at the 2 o'clock position.

If you mount it underneath you can just bump the standard 6p tailswitch while holding the forearm to turn the light on.

here's a pic.

I have one I'll let you have for 12 bucks shipped or 10 bucks if you come and get it.

I appreciate the help. Let me know where/when you'd like to get together.

Cheapest way I've seen was to use Zip Ties (or pipe clamps) and mount the light to the front sight assembly at the 10:00 position. (A guy acually used this at a class - crude but it worked).

Another option is to get a $5 1" scope ring from your local sporting goods store, and either use the Streamlight Mount ($20 and puts the light at the 6:00 position) or the $30 'Snap On' mount that puts the light at either 3:00 or 9:00
