I was at a local pawn shop the other day when I saw a Surefire M6 Guardian light. I guess they didn't know what they really had because I was able to pick it up for $15.  A new one would cost you about $425.!  Anyways, it works great putting out about 500 lumens of retina-searing light.  I can't seem to find a weapon mount for it though.  While not for sure, I think the body is about two inches in diameter & I can't seem to find a weapon mount for it (besides duct tape...).  I'm probably gonna put it on the 870 as I already have a TLR-1 for my M4.  Any hints or suggestions?

let me start with a question on my own, is the light set up to mount on a pictinny rail?  Then go to Midway USA's website and type in  #491217 into the search function and see if that would work for you.


on a different computer now, here is a clickable link: http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=491217

If the answer is yes to your question TLeeworth, this may have been one of the easiest questions ever to answer... wish they were all that black and white sometimes.

Sorry Cory, not so easy... 


No, there is no mounting hardware on the light itself- I'm thinking I'll need some type of ring mount that'll encase the actual flashlight.  It's hard to describe other than it looks like a "regular" cheap flashlight a civilian might carry in the glovebox that holds two D size batteries.


  I've seen the weapon light used overseas on M4's by some troops so I know there's a mount out there- I just don't want to buy it from Surefire because you have to buy a light WITH the mount & it's priced around $750.00.  The flashlight itself can be seen here: http://www.surefire.com/M6-Guardian

Not sure if any of those will work, but hey; I tried.

OK you need this as well as what I said above :  http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=231391 ,using a 3rd computer, you may have to copy and paste the link, this computer doesn't do clickable links.


http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=231391  back on 2nd computer so make link clickable, with this and the item mentioned above the flashlight can be attached to an 870.

If it was made in China, it's a durn good knockoff and I'll be buying stock in that company!  No, it's not a knockoff, just an older model one I think since everybody's going to LED & smaller is better kind of thing.  It's diameter is maybe a little thicker than my old kel lite but about a third of the length.

Until monster fixes the HTML problem, its copy and paste time, though it sounds like items 491217 and 231391 together should allow you to mount the light.

Try a set of scope mounts and a rail then attach the scope via hose clamps or black electrian tape. Ok that is cowboyed up but it will work LOL

At least it was not duct tape. LOL Can't have the silver color as it is not tactical.
