A few weeks ago I purchased an Off-Set Tactical Light Mount for my AR. So far – I have been very pleased. Matched up with a Streamlight Polytac LED Flashlight – this is an excellent system system for illuminating targets in night conditions.
The mount attaches to a picatinny rail or weaver base via a single knurled knob which can be hand-tightened. It also can be tightened with a wrench – but I found that not necessary.
With this offset design – it is very easy to access the button for a momentary on/off using the hand holding the fore-grip. When maneuvering – a simple touch to the button on the back of the Polytac shines a super bright light downrange.
4 screws hold the upper and lower halves of the rings together and engulf the flashlight. Rings are for 1″ flashlights, which is very standard. After shooting a couple of hundred rounds – I did not have any issues with the rings or mount loosening up. Would not be a bad idea to Loc-tite the rings to a flashlight if it is a dedicated system.
Wondering what lurks in the dark? I don’t anymore.
Grab the Polytac while you’re at it – great light.
