So as many of you may have noticed, having a rail on the left side of the Kriss is rather stupid. It gets in the way of grabbing the charging handle, and we havent even put anything on it yet!!

I had been thinking of making a rail that is mounted but position lower to help clear the charging handle.

I dont know about you guys but I may have found something that could work. Although it is for a specific use and not as resourceful as a rail.

Haley Strategic created this light mount for the SureFire Scoutlight. There are adapters to use with e-series lights or 1" body lights like the 6PX or G2 series.

Ignore the bottom one. That is for rail mounting.
I got measurements and it is too short to fit the 2 inch gap between the hard points on the side of the Kriss. However It may be possible to drill a new hole into the aluminum. This will allow me to mount my SureFire Scout forward of the Kriss and away from the charging handle.

I need to order one and test it out.

I wonder if you could do some science fair with this Magpul MOE Scout Mount and make it work...

Dont think so. The scout mount points are too close together. Dropwing has enough material to drill a third hole for the correct spacing.

So I had been looking at the Haley Strategic Dropwing scoutlight mount. It is back ordered. But it is designed to shift a SureFire scoutlight forward of a rail on an AR platform. It got me thinking that is what I want to do for my Vector. Right now Im using a SureFire E1E body, SureFire KX2C clone head, and a SR-07 remote railed switch. I dont like the momentary only tape switch and optioned for the SR-07 so I can have a constant on but it requires to be mounted on a rail. So my left rail is used up.

The Dropwing looks like it could be used to attach the scoutlight. But since I cant get one to try it out I figured out a poorman's mock up. I used a thick piece of Kydex that my friend had as scrap. I had some spare screws that match the mounting points and they are close enough to screw into the Scoutlight body.
