New for 2017 – Finger Stops for 1913 Picatinny rails and Inline Scout Mounts for Troy and VTAC Alpha handguards

Arisaka Defense Picatinny Finger Stop 1

Like our KeyMod, M-Lok, and CMR versions, the new Finger Stop for 1913 Picatinny rails was developed as a low profile, minimal control accessory. This new version functions well as both a forward index point or rear hand stop due to its wider shape and smooth contour. The Finger Stops are machined out of 6061 aluminum and weigh only 0.4 oz.

The new Inline Scout Mounts for Troy and VTAC Alpha handguards feature recoil lugs specific to each handguard and utilize a durable steel back plate to secure the mount. Like the KeyMod and M-Lok Inline Scout Mounts, these are made from 7075 aluminum for extra strength and include three sets of mounting holes for the light. This allows you to tuck the light up close to the top rail or move it outwards to gain additional clearance beside front sights or other accessories. Compatible with Surefire M300 and M600 Scout lights, Arisaka 300 and 600 Series lights and bodies, and the Streamlight Protac Rail Mount 1 and 2.

Arisaka Defense recently added 3 new products to their lineup so we figured we’d tell you about them all in one post. 

First is the Low Profile Bipod Mount for Harris S-series (S-BR, S-BRM, S-L, S-LM, S-25, and S-25C) Bipods. The Low Profile Bipod Mount replaces the entire stock sling swivel interface with a minimalist Picatinny mount. Rotation limiters allow for approximately 15 degrees of cant to either side for leveling, and the mount is compatible with pod lock levers.

Arisaka Low Profile Harris S Bipod Mount 2

The Low Profile Bipod Mount places the bipod 1/8″ below the Picatinny rail, greatly reducing the overall height. Combined with its weight at just over one ounce and a short 1.4″ length, it significantly reduces bulk compared to the stock mount. Machined from billet 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized, the Low Profile Bipod Mounts are built for rough use and long term reliability.

Next up is the Low Profile Picatinny Rails for KeyMod and MLOK. These 5 slot rails feature a reduced height to pull Picatinny accessories closer to the handguard. They also utilize three KeyMod or M-Lok fasteners which will spread the increased stress of large Picatinny accessories like bipods or vertical grips over more slots on the rail.

The Low Profile Picatinny Rails are machined out of billet 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized.

Proudly made in the USA and available now on the Arisaka site:

Low Profile Picatinny Rail M-Lok


Last but not least is the new SureFire M620 Adapter for Offset Scout Mounts. The Offset M620 Adapter allows Surefire M620 Scout lights to be used with our Offset Scout Mount, and preserves the adjustability, allowing for side to side placement for additional clearance around front sights or other top rail mounted accessories. The wrap-around design also keeps the light on the same plane as a M300 or M600 Scout light used without the Offset M620 Adapter.

The Offset M620 Adapter is machined from billet 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized for durability.

A while back Arisaka Defense started offering their own take on the popular Scout Light to go along with their awesome Scout Mounts which have proven to be so popular they have had a hard time making enough light bodies to even keep them in-stock. With the success of their Scout Lights soaring, Arisaka looked for another cost effective option for their customers who needed something now and have found that in the Streamlight ProTac lights. 

The Steamlight ProTac lights come with a standard picatinny rail mount that attaches to the light body the same way any other scout mount does. Arisaka has started carrying the Streamlight ProTac 1 and 2 cell lights and pairing them with their awesome Arisaka Scout Mounts at extremely affordable prices.

Coincidentally Arisaka Defense actually has 300 Series Scout Lights, 600 Series Scout Lights and the Streamlight ProTac 1 and 2 lights all in-stock right now so you have tons of options to choose from and customize a light that best meets your needs. Check all of these options out at www.ArisakaDefense.com.

American Defense Manufacturing announced today they will have a new Offset Scout Mount featuring their patented QD AUTOLOCK Lever System. According to American Defense Mfg there will be a Cantilever model (shown) and Non-Cantilever model available in both right and left side models. These will be available very soon so keep an eye on www.ADM-MFG.com.

Impact Weapons Components and Haley Strategic Partners have a history of working closely together to create some great light mount solutions. Their latest creation is the THORNTAIL INLINE light mount and THORNTAIL BACKBONE replacement Scout bodies for the M300 and M600. 

IWC THORNTAIL INLINE MOUNT AND BACKBONE body 1

The THORNTAIL INLINE light mount is a cantilever design that pushes the light forward, letting you mount the light just forward of your support hand for easy access to the tail cap. On the mount are two sets of mounting holes that let you mount the light further or closer to the rail to work well with other accessories on your rail such as front sights or lasers. The mount also features the BCM reverse KeyMod screws and can be used with any Scout light.

IWC THORNTAIL INLINE MOUNT AND BACKBONE body 1

Along with the new mount, IWC and HSP also introduced a new set of Scout replacement light bodies called the THORNTAIL BACKBONE. The new BACKBONE is slimmer and lighter than the standard Scout body and feature Four more lateral (side to side) mount holes that let you position the light right where you need it to be instead of the single position you get with a standard SureFire Scout light.

IWC THORNTAIL INLINE MOUNT AND BACKBONE body 1

As I mentioned, both the new THORNTAIL INLINE mount and BACKBONE bodies can be used with existing scout products but where they really shine is when they are used together. Pairing the INLINE mount with the BACKBONE body gives the user nearly a half of an inch of side to side adjustment for the perfect placement.

These are both available for purchase now at www.ImpactWeaponsComponents.com. If you want to save 5% off your order, use the discount code “ar15news” at checkout.

Arisaka Defense always puts out high quality products. I personally use a bunch of their products from Light Mounts to complete Flashlight Builds. Just this morning I received the following press release for their Inline and Offset Picatinny Mount. As you all know, KeyMod and M-LOK rails are great but what do you do with all of your lights, lasers, grips, etc. that only mount to Picatinny rail sections? You need an adapter like the ones Arisaka just released to make them compatible. What I really like about these mounts is that they are adjustable from side to side to allow a wider range of lights and accessories to fit and the KeyMod mounts incorporate the new patent pending Inverted KeyMod Screws from BCM instead of the normal. Take a look at the press release and pics below for these great mounts.

Press Release:  Arisaka Inline & Offset Picatinny Mounts Released

Arisaka is pleased to release our new Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts. The Inline version is available for KeyMod and M-Lok, while the Offset version is available for KeyMod, M-Lok, and the Centurion Arms CMR. Both KeyMod mounts utilize Bravo Company’s Patent Pending Inverted KeyMod Screws.

Arisaka Defense Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts 1

The Inline Picatinny Mount is designed for rail systems that feature 45 degree attachment interfaces, like the BCM KMR, Geissele SMR MK4 and MK8, Mega Arms MKM/MML/Wedge Lock, and Midwest Industries Generation 3 handguards. The height and adjustable side-to-side spacing place Picatinny based lights like the Surefire X300 and Inforce WML close to the handguard and within easy reach at the 1:30 or 10:30 clock positions.

Arisaka Defense Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts 1

Arisaka Defense Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts 1

The Offset Picatinny Mount is a combination of our Offset Scout Mount and a short Picatinny rail section, and is designed for rail systems that do not have 45 degree attachment interfaces like the Noveske NSR, Midwest Industries Generation 2, and SLR Rifleworks Solo Series handguards. Like the inline version, the mount places Picatinny based lights at the optimal 1:30 or 10:30 clock positions. The mount allows the user to adjust the lateral positioning of the Picatinny rail section for additional clearance next to front sights or other accessories.

The Patent Pending Arisaka Inline Ring Mount is designed to securely attach 1″ handheld lights to KeyMod and M-Lok handguards. It is a perfect match for handguards that feature 45 degree angle mounting flats, such as the Bravo Company KMR, Knight’s Armament URX 4, and Geissele Automatics SMR Mk8.

Arisaka Defense Inline Light Mount 1

The Inline Ring Mount features multiple mounting positions for the clamping ring. When used on a 45 degree angle mounting flat, these positions allow the user to place the light closer or farther away from the top 12 o’clock rail to give clearance for front sights or other accessories. Three positions are provided, allowing an offset of up to 0.24″ from center. The outer diameter of the handheld light sits only 0.41″ above the KeyMod or M-Lok mounting surface, making the entire unit very low profile.

Arisaka Defense Inline Light Mount 1

Additionally, the mount can be used in a cantilever fashion, with the end of it protruding past the front of the handguard. This can be useful with short handguards to help reduce barrel or suppressor shadows. The mount can also be reversed, allowing further flexibility for positioning your light.

Apex, NC, May 4, 2015 – Arisaka LLC is pleased to announce the release of its new Offset Scout Mounts for M-LokKeyMod, and Centurion Arms CMR handguard systems.

The Patent Pending Offset Scout® Mount is a low profile mounting solution for the Surefire Scout Light® M300 and M600 series weapon lights. The mounts are less than 0.165″ thick, making them very slim and unobtrusive. The light is positioned at a 45 degree angle and has four lateral mounting locations, which allows the light to be tucked in close to the top Picatinny rail or positioned outwards to gain clearance around front sights or other accessories. The Offset Scout® Mount can also be paired with the Arisaka 300 Series Light Body or 600 Series Light Body for an even lower profile light setup.

Arisaka Offset Scout Mount 1Arisaka Offset Scout Mount 1

The Offset Scout® Mount is compatible with the Centurion Arms CMR and most KeyMod and M-Lok handguards, including the BCM KMR, KAC URX4, Geissele SMR MK8, Mega MKM, MML and Wedge Lock, Noveske NSR, and Midwest Industries SSK and SSM.

Weighing only 0.4 oz, the Offset Scout® Mount is manufactured out of 6061 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 type III hard coat anodized.

Unity Tactical just released a sneak peek at a brand new product they will be bringing out soon called the MONKEY BAR. The new Unity Tactical MONKEY BAR is a light mount bar that replaces the clamp on the front sight of a Magpul MBUS PRO sight creating one complete unit. In the photo shown they have a Scout Light mounted to it. No word yet as to whether or not they will be making additional mount options but I would think that is a natural progression.

Unity Tactical Monkey Bar Light Mount 5

Unity Tactical is proud to announce the “Monkey Bar”. A replacement clamp for the excellent Magpul™ MBUS™ PRO line of Backup Iron Sights.

 

The Monkey Bar replaces the OEM clamp to provide the user with a solid and lightweight FUSION compatible mounting interface. The FUSION interface allows you to directly mount Surefire™ Scout Lights as well as 1913 rail sections (Using the Offset Rail), 1” or Executive Series Ring Lights (Using the FUSION Ring Mounts) or Surefire ™ Millennium Series Lights (Using the Millennium Series Adapter). The Monkey Bar is precision machined out of 6061-T6 aluminum and Type 3 Hardcoat anodized for durability. It adds 0.2 Ounces of weight over the MBUS™ Pro alone, so it’s one of the lightest weight mounts on the market. It is currently in production and will be available at the end of April.

FAQs:
Q. When will it be available?
A. About 6 weeks. (posted on March 18th)

Q. How much does it weigh?
A. Net weight increase of less than 0.2oz. That’s like less than one of Kyle Lamb’s beard hairs.

Q. Why is called Monkey Bar?
A. Because America, that’s why.

Q. Will it make me more attractive to women?
A. Yes.

Q. This is incredible, it must cost like a thousand dollars?
A. Nope! Street price will be well under $40, which is about 7 rounds of M855.

Will keep you all posted if I hear any additional info.

If you own a SureFire Scout light you are probably aware that there’s not really any great way to mount the included ST07 Tape Switch to the rail as it comes from the factory, especially on rails like the new M-LOK ones where there are more open spaces than metal. Most people either fashion some gangster way to either velcro it, tape it or zip tie it to the rail or they end up upgrading to a more expensive tape switch like the SR07. Those of us running M-LOK rails are gonna be happy to see that Magpul’s M-LOK SureFire Tape Switch Mounting Plate is now available for purchase and ready to ship. This basically adds a housing to your existing ST07 Tape Switch that mounts directly to the rail and holds the ST07 firmly in place. Another nice part is that they retail for just $15 so its a very cost effective option. For more information and to purchase the M-LOK Tape Switch Mounting Plate, head on over to www.Magpul.com.

**Press Release**

Apex, NC, March 11, 2015 – Arisaka LLC is pleased to announce the release of its new 600 Series Light Body.

The 600 Series Light Body is designed as a streamlined replacement for Surefire Scout Light M600 bodies. It is manufactured without the mounting interface for the stock Picatinny clamp, which increases clearance for front sights or other accessories. When used in combination with the low profile Arisaka Inline Scout Mount or Offset Scout Mount, the light can be tucked in very close to the rail system.

Arisaka 600 series scout body 3

The 600 Series Light Body is compatible with all E2 and Scout Light M600 series tail caps and heads. It will also fit in any aftermarket Scout mount, as it retains the mounting holes and square lug interface on the underside of the light body.

Like our smaller 300 Series Light Body, it is possible to build a complete light from scratch by sourcing a Surefire or aftermarket light head, and a tail cap or tape-switch.

The 600 Series Light Body is manufactured out of 6061 aluminum, type III hardcoat anodized, and made entirely in the USA.
