Mounting weapon lights to rifles in a compact way can sometimes be tricky. Arisaka makes some legit solutions for keeping rifle lights out of the way and nice and streamlined. If you’re running a Keymod or M-LOK rail, this is the mount you need.
The overlapping hole design allows you to shift the light closer or farther away from the top rail, providing additional clearance for wider front sights or other accessories. Constructed of 7075-T6 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized, the Inline Scout Mounts weigh just 0.6 oz and are 0.20″ thick at the light mounting point.
Why would I want this over just mounting the Surefire to a piece of pic rail with the default mount?
This mount keeps the light closer to the rail, and you can shift the light up and down along the Inline mount to get the fit exactly how you want it. So it clears lasers, your hand, front sights (if mounted in the 11/1 o’clock positions). Plus, this mount eliminates weight compared to the default mount + a piece of pic rail.
Will you assemble a Scout light with this for me?
We don’t do anything like that. Yet…
Should I loctite the screws?
You can. We’ve been running ours without and just tightening them down a lot. They don’t budge or come loose for us.
