The Midwest AR-15 Tactical light mount is designed to give you a simple and easy way to mount a tactical light, or other picatinny accessory to your AR-15.
The light mount is very simple and easy to install. Installation only requires one screw and should take you less than a minute. Although the mount is easy to install, it is very robust and rigid, giving you a firm platform for you to attach your accessories to. The mount works by clamping onto your AR-15 standard A2 front sight base. Using this as the attachment point, this tactical light mount is able to be installed on and AR-15/M16/M4 rifle with a standard A2 front sight gas block.
Since the mount features picatinny railing on both the left and right side of the mount, it can be used equally by left or right handed shooters. Also, in addition to giving your picatinny rail space, the light mount also has integrated QD sling swivel sockets. These QD sockets are compatible with QD sling swivels. The integrated QD cups in this mount are non-rotational. This means that the will not allow your sling swivel to swivel one hooked into the socket. This helps to prevent your sling from getting tangled.
