The Patent Pending Arisaka Offset Scout Mount is designed specifically for the Surefire Scout Light M600 and M300series weapon lights, the Arisaka 300 and 600 Series Lights, and the Streamlight Protac Rail Mount 1, 2 and HL-X. It replaces the stock Picatinny rail adapter with a low profile mount for M-Lok handguards. The Offset Scout Mount is very low profile at less than 0.20" thick. When used on the side mounting surfaces of M-Lok handguards, the Offset Scout Mount places the light at a 45-degree angle and tucks it in closer to the rail system. Oriented upwards, the light is located at approximately the 1:30 or 10:30 clock positions. Oriented downwards, the light is located at approximately the 4:30 or 6:30 clock positions.
