It's an alright mount

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 10, 2012
I've read the reviews for this iteam and agree. I to thought it was machined aluminum but was disapointed to discover the mount was injection moulded plastic. I'm a firearms instructor, rifleman, and Trooper of six years. All an all, our dumb asses didn't realize that to adjust the diameter of the mount to fit our respective flashlights... you needed to turn the threaded latch mechanism. The threads allow you to slightly increase or decrease the inner diameter of the mount. We all probaly thought is was a fixed size and tourqued down on the latch.... thus breaking it. When I recieved the replacement, I played around with it and realized my error. It's since been on my Benelli M2, RR M4, 870 Tactical, and KSG. Aslong as you tighten the retention screw with a quarter, the mount holds its own.
Pros: Surefire quality, allows a small variance between diff. diameter flashlight
Cons: My first one snapped, but OpticsPlanet replaced it without question ...
Would recommend: Yes

Bright Idea

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, KS Written on March 4, 2012
This item is a very good ringmount for lightsand laser devicesa of the appropeiate size... it is adjustable for a little variance, and with positive latch mechanism is easy to completely remove. Just make sure you use common sense to not over tighten and verify allingment of latch before locking down.
Pros: solid, adjustable Surefire quality...
Would recommend: Yes

Completely worthless

Two minutes out of the box, the plastic clamp on the mount broke when my metal Surefire 6P flashlight was being attached. Do not buy this product.
Pros: Are you kidding me?
Cons: It's plastic....

Update on Light Mount

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on December 3, 2010
Well, I am hoping Surefire's customer service reputation is accurate. Light was holding a 6P LED on my M4, but broke the first time I opened it. It sat on the rifle through mild use for perhaps a month, under non-extreme conditions. Even if SF replaces it, I am buying a metal one for the future. I had a similar issue with SF flipopen IR and red filters - their plastic accessories don't seem to be built to the same durability standard as their lights. I DO NOT RECOMMEND.
Pros: hmm
Cons: Plastic clamp broke...
Would recommend: Yes

Surefire but not as good as it could be

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on October 14, 2010
For the price, I was expecting complete metal construction. It is easy to use and will hopefully last.
Pros: Easy to set up
Cons: Plastic construction, price...

Great Simple and Versatile Mount

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MT Written on July 12, 2010
I have two of these 1" light mounts. They fit rails tightly and do not loosen. They are adjustable to hold various brands of lights around 1" diameter. The only durability question is the polymer strap that actually holds the light. I think if you had it adjusted too tightly and tried to cam it shut, you could break it. Long-term durability might be a issue, but I am not in a combat situation, just coyote/pig hunting, pest control, home defense.
Pros: Good Value, Simple, Lightweight, Highly Versatile
Cons: Could break the plastic/polymer strap...
Would recommend: Yes

Good choice

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on July 26, 2009
Overall, I am very glad I got this flashlight mount. At first I could not figure out why the clamp would not close even though I knew my flashlight had a 1 inch diameter. Then I found that you had to turn the outer part of the clamp on an adjustment screw to extend it a little bit to make it fit just right. The inner part of the clamp, that attaches to the rail is made of metal and attaches to the rail very solidly with an easy thumb wheel screw that makes it easy to get on and off the rail without tools. The outer part of the clamp is made of plastic, which kind of surprised me, given the price of this item. It seems to be very solidly built but I am worried that the plastic parts could be a weak link at some point. Once I got it adjusted just right, it holds the flashlight (I have a Fenix TA20) solid as a rock.
Pros: Attaches solidly to rail, holds light tightly, easily removed from rail
Cons: Has some plastic parts that could be a weak link...
Would recommend: Yes

Does not fit G2 Nitrolon / G2 LED!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on February 9, 2009
I tried to put a G2LED into the mount and broke it (the plastic claw snapped into two). I had no idea that G2 LED had body diameter 1.040", not 1". My own fault for ignorance, I guess. But let it be a warning to others.
Cons: 1" size flashlights ONLY...
Would recommend: Yes

great mount for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on February 6, 2009
This is a very well built mount that fits great on my rail. I used it to mount my G2 LED Nitrolon. However, you should note that the nitrolon body seems to be a little wider than 1 inch in diameter. The mount is adjustable by spinning the open part of the mount to back out the screw a bit (if this makes sense), so the Nitrolon body will fit, but it is a pretty tight fit. Overall still looks and functions great....
