The guys over at Haley Strategic Partners did a huge push on this new product the other day so I figured I would hold off on sharing until the buzz slowed down a bit and then stir it back up a bit. As many of you already know from some of my previous posts, I’m a huge fan of the Thorntail light mount from HSP. The main reason for that is that they just work awesome!! They put the light where I want it and are very robust. Another part is that they are produced by one of my favorite manufacturers, Impact Weapons Components, so I know the people who are making it and the type of workmanship they put into their product. We’ve been watching the evolution of the original Thorntail grow into many different products and now they are introducing the new Thorntail Offset mount. This new mount is much more than just a light mount. The Thorntail Offset mount features a 1913 Picatinny rail section to allow for rail mounted pistol lights, Iron Sights and other accessories to be mounted at an offset to your rail system. I for one will be mounting a set of BUIS on a pair of these. Looking forward to checking them out. For now, check out the pics and details below.
THORNTAIL Offset 1913 Adaptive Light MOUNT-N-SLOT was designed to expand the mounting locations and illumination capability of rail-mounted weaponlights.
Ambidextrous and Cantilevered design provides 8 different mounting positions and 4 additional adjustments fore / aft on a quad rail system. This enables the Operator to position the rail mounted weaponlight up to several inches beyond the end of the forend or rail system allowing the shooter to place the support hand farther forward on the weapon, improving the shooter’s control, speed and accuracy while increasing usable space for attaching IR devices, lasers, grips, etc.
45 Degree Offset design places the bezel of the weaponlight to reduce barrel shadowing during critical low light situations.
Can also be used as a 45 Offset mounting platform for BUIS.
LESS THAN an OUNCE! Ultra-lightweight THORNTAIL Offset 1913 Adaptive Light MOUNT-N-SLOT weighs a mere .773 ounces (21.915G). Weighs a fraction of the weight of an extended length rail system!
100% LIFETIME WARRANTY. PERIOD. Return for full refund.
Designed with Haley Strategic Partners and MADE BY AMERICANS at Impact Weapons Components in Colorado!
