My lamp is a bit overkill for my rimfires, so i was thinking of mounting my LED Lenser P7 onto them instead as the range is good enough for a rimmie.

 

Only trouble is the mounts look horrible. They look like they would swivel round the scope at the first chance and it appears you have to take the whole thing off to put the torch on.

Is there an alterantive out there that would fit? Ideally I'd like to leave the bottom half of the bracket on my scopes then clip or slide the torch into the mount when I need it.

I use one with a laser, iv modded it abit to sit around one of my mounts so that probably stops it spinning around on the scope tbh. The Velcro one is probably more adjustable as to where its pointing as that's the only issue I had.

Have a look into these, they offer a wide range of mounting options. Available upto 30mm and also in single rings so you can quickly detach if needed. I have one mounted on a P7 but the kids have had it away :laugh:

i had one of these and it pointed off centre a we bit. had to twist the lamp in the mount to get it to point straight but it would go back to being on the piss

I've been using one of these mounts and they are very good the beam trajectory alignment is spot on. When I first got it i thought it wouldn't work but was pleasantly surprised

If you have a 40-42mm scope you can use one of these, there a too low for a 50mm objective though.

I have them fitted to air rifles and mount the T20 style torches in them, they hold very securely and you can just pull them out without removing the mount very easily.

 

Spot on to be honest :thumbs:
