I searched for a method of attaching a flashlight to my .40 which might aide me in protecting my home. It occured to me that you don't shoot at what you dont see, and at midnight its dark and if i flip a light switch I also cant see. I reccomend to never have a home defense weapon without a light. My solution was simple and elegant.
I have a 2cm diameter flashlight and I discovered that I have a .22 scope that I'm not using. I put the two together and tried to put them on my pain in the butt accessory rail. Of course this little dovetail mount didn't fit. But it fits the trigger guard like a glove. It occurs to me that this frees up the accessory rail for the high point laser. My only small problem is that the mag light is a little bit too long. This is fine by me since it still serves its purpose well.
I can't find my camera while i post this, so sorry no pics. The specs are below.
Mag Light Mini Mag = 2cm
Simmons Varmint Scope Ring = .75in
2cm is very close to .75in, one wrap in electrical tape closed this gap (you cant see it.)
Scope ring is rigid enough under fire testing (for a light) and fits perfectly under trigger guard.
