GG&G MIL-STD-1913 Forearm Mounting Rail for Tactical Flashlights is designed to fit those small 1913 flashlight models that are designed to directly interface with a MIL-STD-1913 rail. The GG&G MILSTD-1913 Tactical Illuminator Mounting Rail weighs a mere 0.5 ounces, and is under 2" long. This GG&G Mounting Rail is as compact and lightweight as the flashlights themselves. The GG&G Tactical Light Rail Mount is machined from solid billet 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminum alloy using modern CNC machinery. After being dehorned and bead blasted the mount is Type III hard-coat anodized matte black to mil-spec, so as to provide a hard combat proven finish.
The GG&G MIL-Spec-1913 Light Rail for AR15/M16 Rifles can be easily installed by the operator with basic hand tools. GG&G recommends that the illuminator rail be attached to the handguard in a location where both the momentary-on (rotate counter-clockwise) and constant-on (rotate clockwise) switch assembly can be reached by the index finger of the support hand. For a right-handed operator this will usually be on the front of the top handguard just to the right of the centerline.
