option one is the only workable one. You could mount a traditional weaponlight and operate it with your thumb. Option 2 is impossible to work without some wired tail cap.
This is how I run mine. Works well.
Remote switch is an option.
BUIS is the only LaRue going on the guns.
Oh. Sorry. I meant:
Oops. Realized you have a standard handguard. Option 1. The second mount is too far forward.
No rail for home.
VTAC offset mount does the same thing the vltor does except weighs and costs less.
To use either of those, I'd have to get option 1. Is that what youre voting for?
To use either the vltor or vtac, you'd have to get the mako?
Standard plastic handguard.
Wouldnt option 2 put alot of heat on the flashlight also? I would think after a couple hundred of rounds going through the barrell there would be enough heat emitting off it to fry just about any bulb
If you notice the example pictures, both have standard handguards. If I wanted to use a railed forend, this wouldn't be a question.
Also, ref. post #7.
I don't ever, even in a SHTF defensive situation, think I'll be putting several hundred rounds through a gun faster than it can cool itself off.
And if zombies attacks that thing is going to be glowing blue
If zombies attack, I'm going to be putting 12ga slugs in them, not .223.
Get one of these.
Depends on the distance.
I have yet to pattern my new 870.
Ive seen some people do this.
These are zombies though, 1oz 3inch Magnums > * Nigga gonna have the hole the size of TX in him
mounted on left side it is easy to activate with thumb. Plus with screw mount it's easy to remove light/mount to use off the rifle
See post 13.
I ordered one of each along with a vtac light mount so I can set up one on each rifle.
I'll post impressions when I get 'em all together.
I prefer the standard weaponlights because they have a rocker switch. It is easier to press a rocker switch down to get momentary light, or flip and lock the toggle switch up to get constant light. It's much more difficult to press a tailcap button in (flashlight) while also firing the rifle. The other benifit is the weaponlight can also go on your pistol or shotgun if you have a rail.
Looking at Johnsons picture, try point your support hand index finger towards the muzzle along the fore end. It puts your wrist in a more nautural angle, helps you drive the gun faster target to target, and extends your arm out creating less fatigue if you have to hold on target for extended periods.
What kind of rear buis is that?
