Arson Machine co. may not be a familiar company with many readers but they make some fine flashlight mounts. Arson started making these mounts over a year ago and have expanded the line a good deal since they began.
All of these mounts from 6061 T-6 aluminum,type III hard coat anodized black surface. All the hardware is stainless steel and made to standard ASE sizing. If you happen to lose a screw you can find a replacement at the local hardware store until you can get a replacement from Arson.
The mounts currently offered fit the Troy TRX rail, M-Lok, MOE, Beretta CX4, Keymod, offset and scout light. These mounts are very sturdy with rounded edges to prevent hanging up on brush,clothing etc. as well keeping you from banging your knuckles on them. Considering how sturdy they are they are also lightweight. MSRP is $44.00.
Arson recently started making sling mounts. These fit M-Lok and Keymod rails currently. I’m sure they will eventually make them to fit other rails. The MSRP is $19.00.
The next part of the system is the Adaptor. These come in several shapes and sizes. As with our spice cabinet, variety and modularity is key. We designed all of our Adaptors and Rings to work when mounted above or below the base (when mounted on the 90° sides of most handguard systems) as well as on both sides of the weapon. We also created several methods for attachment. There is the regular old 1″ ring which will work with lights from 1.010″ down to 0.985″ in outer diameter (if you are looking for a different diameter contact us at [email protected]), there is the 90° SureFire Scout Adaptor for the M300 and M600 series lights, and there is the Offset Light Mount for more flexibility in mounting pistol or WML style lights to your rifle using an offset 1913 Picatinny rail. We will also be releasing more adaptors of varying kinds in the not so distant future so stay tuned. The interface is the same between all of our Adaptors and rings, so any base will work with any Ring or Adaptor we make. One bonus feature is that the 1913/Picatinny rails that we make for our Offset Light Mount will also bolt directly to any of our bases to further expand their usefulness in solving your mounting woes.
