While there are plenty of differing opinions on weapon mount or not, here is a fresh idea. I actually learned two things, easier ways to custom cut ranger bands, as well as a fantastic way to the weapon mount your EDC light. There are a few factors you still need to consider like will your handguard support this setup? does the body of your EDC light have a body that will work? is this better? While you will likely need to test or play with the setup to find out but it does offer some flexibility as well as a backup plan should your primary fail. In my case, this is ideal since I love the power, size, and weight of my current light as well as being comfortable with my EDC lights operation. Good idea!
