I have a flat top M4 type Bushmaster with an EOTech 552 and ARMS #40 BUIS. I want to mount a flashlight and possibly a vertical foregrip but I am not interested in a full rail system because of cost and because it seems to be overkill for what I need it to do. So my question for all you knowledgeable folks out there is what system would you recommend for mounting these accessories and what flashlight would you use? I would like a light that has a remote pressure switch. Any info would be much appreciated.

If cost is an issue, go with the FOBUS M33/M44 rail system or Busmaster's rail system. The get yourself a Surefire M962. Total cost around $400. Or, go with the rails and get a Streamlight M6. Total cost, around $400. Maybe $450. Okay maybe $500 but you'll be all set.

The easiest "add-a-rail", and VFG, is from [url=advanced-armament.com/ar-15.html]Advanced Armament[/url]

M33 lower handguard only (use the standard CAR upper handguard). You may need to trip the tabs for clean fit - but they work well. Works fine for a foregrip and a light. I didn't care for the Advance Armament rail - too many accessories WON'T work with it.

Really? I have no problems with mine, although I havent attached much to it. What won't attach? I have this setup. Didnt cost a lot, and keeps the handguards free. [img]http://members.cox.net/ahaywood5785/pictures/MYAR-15.jpg[/img]
