    Yep, my bad... have to check to see if there is a permanent setting for that. Doing this stuff before enough morning coffee often results in looking dumb... Thanks... ;-)

    Looks really nice! I'm guessing we'd still need to loosen the barrel clamp in order to remove the barrel, but that's not much of a hassle for the added functionality. I really like the addition of the sling mount incorporated into the design.

    Mr. Rubberman:

    I want to be very clear about this! You do not have to loosen, or otherwise remove this mounting system to remove the barrel. That is the beauty of the design. This mount attaches to the barrel and rear barrel hanger which is all one solid part.

    To field strip your firearm you follow normal procedures. That is: safety check, unscrew mag tube retainer, pull barrel - this is where your AVA Tactical mount slides right off along with the barrel - and then you continue with your operation. The reverse is true as well.

    BONUS: If you use a aiming device on the rail, it maintains zero.

    I appreciate everyone's feedback here, thank you for taking a look. If there are any tips on how I can clarify the features of this product to more effectively communicate them I am all ears!

    Does it tighten around the barrel, or does the barrel merely pass through? Have the harmonics loosened the mount any, or worn the finish from the barrel or cause rub marks, etc? How many and what kind of rounds where fired before opinion on the above was formed?

    Also, is there a version which direct mounts surefire scout lights?

    I'm sorry if I asked anything previously answered, I'm out of town on my mobile. Looking at some land.

    Hello -

    There were three prototypes that were suitable for actual use. They were mounted on three shotguns in various places across the United States. I can't comment on barrel wear for the others, although Mr. Danger was one of them and he might be able to comment. For my setup I ran over 2k rounds through it with the mount and even had some folks at a tactical shotgun class run my gun to give me feedback on the mount. There was no appreciable wear on my system. It will have to be torqued to spec and appropriate thread locker used to ensure proper function of course.

    Had there been wear, I was going to offer Helicopter Tape or 3M Protective Tape to act as a buffer and in fact that can still be done. For those that are especially concerned about the finish on their M4, application of an appropriate tape will be piece of mind as it would with any barrel clamp system.

    Keeping in mind, barrel / magazine tube clamps on shotguns for mounting systems are common place. I can probably name 10 manufactures of such mounts. Many factory Remington and other manufacturers even ship their factory shotguns with barrel/magazine tube clamp style mounts.

    The biggest difference with the AVA Tactical mount is that it does not clamp to the magazine tube - it clamps to the rear Barrel Hanger instead which prevents it from interfering with field stripping the firearm. I would argue the fact that this is custom for the M4 also allowed the design to tighten things up keeping everything high speed, low drag as well. There is not a barrel clamp system out there that keeps things in close to the chassis like this mount does.

    We can mount Scout lights, in fact StrangerDanger is running a Scout. There are details on my website on how to mount a Scout - you need a non-flared tail cap at a minimum and you get a better looking setup if you run a E series body with your Scout.

    However we cannot utilize the Scout mounting system directly at this time. It's not for lack of trying, however. I spent many days working on the Scout mount system and it just doesn't fit into the geometry of the M4 where the barrel hanger is very well. I can make a mount for the Scout if there is enough interest (Hundreds of Pre-Orders), but it will push the light out further from the chassis than I can get your E series body in there. I suspect most would opt to use a E series body once they were aware of the dynamic.

    I saw the kx2c head, it is 1.0". The new scouts and eb1 uses a 1.1", I believe. Will these new lights clear barrel?

    Those heads will undoubtedly have proper clearance. The 1 inch bodied 6 series was tested with a head clearance of 1.25in. No issues.

    Good deal. I am sorely tempted. Your product looks far better than the other options this forum has seen over the years.
