    Surefire on SBR 16s with key mod

    I want to run a surefire scout light on the left side if the SBR on the PMM keymod rails I want to run the scout light rail pressure switch on the top rail behind the front sight.

    I am right handed and run the charging handle on the right side.

    How do I do it? What mount for the scout light?

    Thanks for your input.

    You just have the PMM side panels correct? Not the MRE?

    If this is correct, it all depends how far out you want the scout. If you dont want it cantalevered out in front by the barrel, gas block, I reccament Arisaka for mounts. I have used every single one of their mounts at one point or another and love them.

    You can go straight:

    Arisaka Defense Inline Scout® Mount M-Lok


    Or offset:

    Arisaka Defense Offset Scout® Mount M-Lok

    Then the way I run mine is a Surefire S07 tape on top:

    Surefire SR07 Remote Duel Weapon Light Switch

    Key mod pmm rails - side panels only. It is a 10" sbr amd i have a AAC 51t mount on it for my sdn6 so I dont think it can stick out too much.

    What keymod arisaka mount can I run where the there is no rail and the scout light goes directly onto the mount?

    I appreiciate your feedback. Pic?

    If you're going to run the tape switch at 12-o'clock and you are a righty, you'll probably find running the light on the right side to be more convenient. For mounts, you have lots of options. My suggestion would be 1. BCM or Arson Machine keymod offset scout mount, 2. Picatinny rail section with Hayley Strategic SBR mount to kick that light out forward or 3. Get the PMM KRE/MRE/PRE and run your light out on the rail using an offset mount. Offset keeps the light nice and tight especially if you're not running an IR/Laser.

    Sorry bud, You said keymod and I linked to Mlok. Had a brain fart. If you go to Arisakas website, they have both the mounts, inline and offset, offered in both keymod and mlok so everything I said still applies.


    Both of the Mounts I linked you too above directly attach the light to your rails. There are no pic rails with the 2 I linked above. Here is my setup. It is basiclly the same as the "offset" rail I linked you too above, only there IS a rail on the one I have because I run an X300.

    Here's another option for you. THORNTAIL KeyMod M3M61913 Offset Adaptive Light Mount | IWC

    I would second the mounting light on right side suggestion as well.

    Not a scout nor keymod but here's my setup:

    Good call on the thorntail. that is what I used before asisaka. I still have the long and short throwntails sitting in a parts box. They work great on SBRs.

    The best bet is to Run the Arisaka Offset Picatiny or direct Mount system on my KRE.

    Link below.
    Arisaka Defense Offset Picatinny Mount KeyMod

    I went with a surefire m600v (stupid black) and I bought a tan dbal-i2
    now I need the thorntail or arsaka keymod mount- want to fun the rings right on the mount - no picatinny

    also need a switch for both that i can mount on the left pmm keymod rail
