The Rail Light Mount fits on any standard 1913 Picatinny Rail, is available in right or left side models, and integrates with the Magpul XTM panels. It positions the weapon light high and cantilevered forward, at the 11 o’clock or 1 o’clock position, to allow a more forward support hand position, keep the light tucked in close to the bore, and to minimize barrel shadow. A textured thumb ramp is integrated to provide the user an index point, aiding consistent hand placement and light activation.

Constructed of reinforced polymer, the Rail Light Mount nearly eliminates light compatibility concerns by conveniently including everything you need to mount Surefire 300 and 600 series Scout Lights, 1913 Picatinny attachment pistol lights, and all light bodies from 0.75″ to 1.03″ in diameter via the included set of anodized aluminum mounting rings.

Models are available to position the light high at 11 o’clock (LEFT side model) or one o’clock (RIGHT side model).

    Nice piece of kit.

    A keymod version would be nice and save a bit of weight.

    Are they making this outside of Colorado yet? If so, I’m interested; if not, I’ll wait.

      Outside of Colorado if memory serves.

    I bought a metal one from china for 6 bucks shipped. I have a hard time believing this is 5 times better simply because it has a magpul logo on it.

      For many people, weight and quality are a concern. Ok, sure, maybe it’s not 5 times better, but the same could be said about match barrels, free-float hand guards, etc. If people followed that logic, everyone would use an A2 flash hider & grip.

      In short, price competition is ALWAYS a race to the bottom.

        Agreed. I’ve managed assets that were outsourced overseas as part of my old job. You get what you pay for.

    If I didn’t have a scout light with the built in rail mount I would get one of these… Looks likes a pretty nice mount, and puts it forward and out of the way.

    . . . but I want my light at 9 o’clock, not 11 or 1, and I have G2 and G3 lights.
