Brightshot, flashlight mount.

With more options on mounting a light to an AR-15 than excuses on missing a clay pigeon (I favor “the sun was in my eyes) it can get a bit overwhelming.

If you have a picatinny rail on your rifle (and really who does not) then mounting a light is as easy as finding a light mount that is compatible with the pic rail.  On several of my rifles I do not have a picatinny rail and have no plans to install one.  If you want to add a light without a pic rail you have to get a bit more creative (and no, duct tape is not the best option).

MHA Custom has come up with a small mount for a flashlight that mounts directly to the free float tubes. That saves a bit of weight and bulk getting the flashlight closer to the bore axis. The design prevents the attachment screws, if they do loosen, from backing out enough to accidentally detach the mount from the forearm.

We tested the mount on one of the Barnes Precision rifles to be sure it was held fast and through the test we found no loosening. It appears to be a solid mount that works just as intended.
