Rifle mounted lights.

Recommended Posts

I guys I'm considering buying a scope mounted light for the odd solo mission whilst out doing my night feeds. Not seen many so wondering what people's view are as to what is best and good value for ££&. Cheers Jim

My shooting buddy and I both use Nightmaster X-Searcher Turbo's, very good performance from such a small light.

Hi Jim, I like the night scout torches. I use a single battery t50 which works out about £40 delivered.

 

You can use a figure of 8 mount, or get a weaver base mount for the scope and put the torch in a 25mm tube weaver scope mount. Either option is pretty cheap tbh.

 

At the price of these torches you can get two, one to bung on the scope and one to spot with.

Yeah a mate uses a night master that's the only 1 I have seen in the flesh although I thought his figure 8 mount thing was crap and not very tight to the light.

To mount that on your 'scope you'll need one of these.......

About the best I've found so far with decent slots.

 

I used to use these to hold my NM and T20/T50 torches in red and IR, I add shims of gaffer etc to align the torch with the 'scope.

But now I've fitted(bodged :lol: ) 1" low Optilock rings onto QR bases to give me an adjustable mount. Cheaper than buying a Laserluchs. ;)

 

 

Cheers

Have shot a lot with a Lampforce 170 but the battery pack is heavy. Have just started with the Nightsercher, beam is far far smaller so when attached to a rifle far harder to cover the ground. I have watched foxes at about 150 yards with the lamp not rifle attached that in good conditions would have been killable with a green LED. It would probably go a bit further with the white led but may scare foxes you hit with the beam before you can get a shot away. Dont regret buying it.
