IT/Streamlight mount costs less than $15 usually.

It's a small black polymer piece about 2 inches long and you drill two holes through the lower heat shield in your handguards on the bottom towards the front just behind the front sight post (carbine anyway), run the screws through the mount and secure them in the backplate of mount.

It's for use with Streamlight's M3 series of lights but I imagine any light that would mount on a 3rd Gen Glock will work but I'd verify this as I am only assuming.

The Maryland AR 15 website had instructions on how to mount a weaver rail to your hand guards. I did this with a couple of stainless steel screws and a two-inch section of rail. It works perfectly.

I'm trying this out on a new build. It's a MI long accessory rail with a Viking Tactics mount and Surefire G2. The rail+mount+light=$68. It's sturdy enough for a light by itself but I tried a VFG on with it and I wouldn't trust it to hold up to that.




You also get a shadow from the barrel at your 2 o'clock with this setup. It's not a huge problem but it is there. I don't know if the FSB mounts do the same.

Use the SOTech light buckle. It is made with nylon webbing and costs about $13.50. It is quality gear and will do the job. That and a Surefire G2 are probably the cheapest reliable weaponlight rig you can run on an AR. Other benefit is no drilling into plastic handguards and quick installation and removal...

I have something similar from GGG, but it is made of metal.www.gggaz.com/products/m3illumrifle.php.


I like the fact that it is so simple and that it shares the same light as my Glock.
