For the Installation
STEP #1 ****BE POSITIVE THAT YOUR RIFLE IS NOT LOADED!****
STEP #2 POSITIONING the Tactical Light Mount (figure 1)
- Treat ALL guns as if they are LOADED.
- NEVER let the muzzle point at anything you are not willing to destroy.
- Keep your finger OFF the trigger.
- REMOVE the magazine completely and set it aside.
- PULL the operating rod completely to the REAR and CHECK the
chamber and make SURE it is empty.
- Work the operating rod several times and check the chamber AGAIN to
make sure it is EMPTY.
STEP #3 ATTACHING THE RAIL
- With the Mini-Scout-Mount ™ installed, hold the rifle in your normal
shooting position and note the location of your thumb on the fore end of the
stock. This is where the best natural access the to the flashlight’s controls
should be located.
- Position the "Rail" along the Mount Body so that the controls of your flashlight
is where your support hand thumb would be. The "Rail" can be mounted on
either the side of the Mini-Scout-Mount ™ Body to accommodate Right or
Left-handed shooters. (figure 2)
- Note the location of the two screw holes in the Mount Body that most closely
match the two screw holes in the Rail.
STEP #4 CHECK FOR FIT AND FUNCTION
- Place the rifle on a flat and sturdy table or bench surface with the side of the
Mount Body facing up where the Rail will attach.
- Position the Rail over the two mounting screw holes noted above.
- Start the two bevel-based screws (provided) into the threaded holes in the Mount
Body using the hex wrench (provided). (figure 3)
- Use the hex wrench provided to snug down the Rail to the Mount Body by evenly
tightening the two screws.
- Attach your tactical flashlight to the Rail and check to see that it snaps securely into
place. (figure 4)
- Check the position of the light to ensure that its controls are within reach of your
thumb when you are in a natural shooting position.
- Check the function of the flashlight while mounted to ensure that it works properly. (figure 5)
- Practice removing and attaching the flashlight to the rail to become comfortable and
smooth with the operation.
- If you install a tactical sight system or scope first, check to insure that it
Does not interfere with attaching the flashlight to the Rail.
- If you still have a problem with the fit or function, give us a call or email.
- Larger flashlights can be secured with scope rings and using two kits installed end-to-end
or the 1913 Picatinny LONG model.
- A drop of thread locker on each of the screws is a good idea, but not really necessary.
- If you purchased the STANDARD model (Glock/Weaver style) and your laser or
flashlight will not seat down on the rail, you need the 1913 Picatinny style kit.
