    9mm Carbine flashlight mount?

    Will this work or will the concussion from the muzzle blast destroy the flashlight? I had some random parts around and put this together.

    To be continued... I can't figure out how to post a picture.

    Are you speaking in generic terms or did you actually build something?

    trying to figure out the picture issue. Basically what I did was use an old scope ring on the bottom of a 9mm Hi Point, attached a flashlight but the flashlight sticks out past the end of the barrel.

    I'd think you'd be OK if your using a decent quality light. You'll probably get the lights lens all smoked up though.

    Is there a link on how to post pictures? Taking it directly from iPhoto is too large and trying to use Image Shack's URL doesn't seem to be working.

    I ran a Surefire Scout just past the muzzle on an 11.5" AR with a brake, you'll be fine on a 9mm though I'd recommend getting a real mount.
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    ghetto, I know. Do you think it will mess up the light?

    The Surefire forearm for the MP5 has the bezel out in front of the muzzle, and they seemed to work OK.
    Battle Plan (n) - a list of things that aren't going to happen if you are attacked.
    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    The lens will eventually get dirty from the muzzle blast, but it'll still pass through a surprising amount of light...that's assuming you never clean the lens.

    But otherwise, as long as the light assembly is shock-isolated (for incandescent bulbs) or if you're using an LED, you should be just fine.

    Thanks for the input! I'll get a real mount someday, I just threw this on because it's my first tactical style gun and I'd like to lock it in the closet as a home defense. Currently I only have a .38 with Crimson Trace.

    If your carbine was a .308 or a short-barrelled 5.56, I'd have my doubts, but not with a 9mm. Fire away and wipe it clean as needed.
