    Mounting light to AR

    I am looking at putting a Surefire on my AR I have an L2D led. Anyone have a good or bad word to say about the picatinny CAA triple rail mount that mounts in the holes on the hand guard or the UTG tri-rail barrel mount that mounts around the barrel and front sight. Don't have the funds for a new hand guard with rails at this time.

    Thanks Jim.

    Any type of rail mount eithe to the handguards of the one that clamps to the FSB since a light doesn't have to retain a zero like a red dot or laser

    weaver style scope mounts will work too, if you get the right diameter for the light.

    Or just something liek this:
    ARR-098 - AR-15 Mako 1" Flashlight Adapter Easy to Install Fits your Rail

    a few different mounting options:

    I have the UTG quad rail system on my AR. While a lot of people will poo-poo it because it doesn't cost $300, it is a very stable system. I have a VFG, Sling swivel and (occasionally) bipod mounted on mine and have never noticed any wiggle. I probably wouldn't mount optics on it, but that's what flat top ARs are for!

    ETA: This is the specific one I have http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/ARR146-7.html
