Night vision devices and accessories are becoming very popular as surplus and commercially made devices are becoming much more common and affordable. One problem many people run into when they are building out a night vision capable weapon is the addition of both visible light and a centerline mounted IR illuminator. To help solve this problem, Arson Machine Co has just dropped their latest product, the ATPIAL AN/PEQ-15 Centerline mount.

Arson Machine Co Introduces the ATPIAL AN/PEQ-15 Centerline Mount
Let’s just get straight to business on this one. This mount takes your standard ATPIAL AN/PEQ-15 or ATPIAL-C, cants it a little bit and shifts it to the shooters left just enough. This allows for several things to happen: First, and probably most important, it puts the IR Laser Designator directly over the centerline of the barrel. No more horizontal offset, no more compensating for parallel zero or converging zero. Hold overs become less of an issue and your accuracy potential is increased. The second thing that this mount does is allows you to mount a scout pattern illumination device (White light or otherwise), directly to the side of the laser mount. It also tucks in your scout light nicely like those that make a big deal about their pronouns. For folks with 2cell/18650 sized lights there are 2 mounting options. Sadly, for the 1cell/18350 crowd, you can only run those lights in the forward mounting position. Third, and probably the least important to most: After adding a scout light to our ATPIAL AN/PEQ-15 Centerline mount and looking from the shooter’s right to left, the whole setup has an almost Zen like symmetry. OCD Satisfaction.
Arson Machine knows that these types of accessories fulfill a niche market and as such there are a couple of considerations one needs to take into account before they decide to order their centerline mount. First, users will need to have a 1.93″ tall or higher mount for their passive or daytime optic to counteract the increased height that the mount adds. In addition, those using a 1cell/18350 scout style light will have to accept running it only in the forward most mounting position otherwise the mount will hit the light and place stress on the head making it impossible to unscrew without damaging the light.
If you’re interested in picking one of these mounts up, they can be had in either black or tan coloring and each mount will set you back $139. It is strongly suggested that you read the entirety of the product page before placing your order to ensure 100% compatibility with your light, PEQ-15, and mounting system. What are your thoughts on this new mounting solution for the night vision community?
