I bought a Streamlight TL-2 that I wanted to mount on my ar-15. I decided to buy this model because it is more powerful than both the surefire 6p and scorpion and a better price. Only problem is that it is too small to use 1" rings to mount it and I cant find any smaller rings...suggestions on how to mount it..PLEASE!

That probably wont be easy...i know no one with a lathe..anyone know what would be good to use as shims around the house. I want something that wont be effected by the water or snow.

use the metal duct sealing tape.  It is aluminum,  make one layer try it then add as needed.

i measured the difference to be about a 1/4"

I would check out the hardware store. Look in the section with plastic or PVC piping. You may be able to find a section of plastic pipe, that you could split down the center making a shim that would slip over the light.

Or instead of splitting it down one side only, split it in half, making two shims that you can place 180 out from each other under the rings.

Hope that's clear enough. That's the route I would be looking at.
