Due to my particular weapon configuration, I really need a drop mount for my PL MS3X, which uses the ARMS 17S mount. Larue makes a replacement for the Surefire Millenium lights, but they use a standard ARMS 17, which is longer. So that particular mount won't work on my PL MS3X.

Here is a pic:

I can reach the push button, but it is a stretch. I do have a coiled pressure pad I could use too, but I'd rather not.

Look where your button is in relation to the R rail, and look where mine is:

The LaRue is totally adjustable by reversing the direction of the brackets. And totally adjustable means totally cool (try that with an Arms lever). There's even a long straight bracket a few inches long (not shown in my pic) that can offset it forward/back in relation to where the locking lever is. I don't see how it wouldn't work on yours, but its probably nothing that drilling one more hole can't fix. We're not talking about MOA optics.

Grant's website has lots of good photos of the LT lamp mount, and Grant is totally cool too!

Thanks Kisara. I thought the mounting holes had different spacing between the 17 and 17S. But I bet I could drill a hole....

I do have a 17 and 17S on the rifle, maybe I'll compare the spacing....

If they made them once, I'm sure they'll make them again! Should I email them and say I would like one, just so they know there is demand for it?
