Designing mounts for these tactical lights was a demanding challenge as they had to be every bit as compact and lightweight as the lights themselves. Our Tactical Illuminator Forearm Mounting Rail is machined from solid billet 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminum alloy using modern CNC machinery. The locking groove provides a reliable and stable point of retention. After being dehorned and bead blasted the mount is Type III hard-coat anodized matte black to mil-spec, so as to provide a hard combat proven finish.
The mounting rail for the M16/AR15 series of rifles can be easily installed by the operator with basic hand tools or purchased from us already installed on a new set of standard M16A2 or M4 handguards. If operator installed, we recommend that the rail be attached to the handguard in a location where both the momentary-on (rotate counter-clockwise) and constant-on (rotate clockwise) switch assembly can be reached by the index finger of the support hand. For a right-handed operator this will usually be on the front of the top handguard just to the right of the centerline.
