Here are the options I'm considering:
- 6P or 9P + Larue mount + TNVC TX-4 conversion head: the extra 30 min of battery life would be nice, but is it worth the additional weight? Or, does a 6P already make a rifle feel too front-heavy?

- E2D + Larue mount + TNVC E2 conversion head: about the same battery life as a 9P + TX-4, but only 25% the lumens.

I will mount it on my BCM 16" middy + Larue 9.0 + Aimpoint M3 in Larue cantilever mount upper and could swap between a few different lower set-ups to get a feel for the best balanced set-up.

If you run a Surefire in a Larue mount, do you prefer the regular of off-set mount? Why?

I'll answer your last question...

I like the offset mount with the light mounted on top. I put my thumb on the "plate" part of the mount. There is a little indention there, and It gives me a spot I can consistently index my hand to. Also I can reach my thumb up to operate the button on the back of the light without moving my hand.

What sort of light do you run?

Do you feel like it's a stretch to push the button, or is it comfortable?

Currently an L4 (which has the same body as an E2). I don't feel it is an uncomfortable stretch. I do have have fairly large hands, but I have the mount centered on the light. If I moved the light forward, it would be even less of a stretch.

Hope that makes sense!

Definitely thanks for the heads up!

I'm going to go with the off-set mount... now on to the light.
