  1. So I finally got a chance to install my Ava mount on my M4. It went on fine, and as others have mentioned the mount itself is finished off very nicely and looks great. I am using a Surefire P2X Fury Tactical light (600 lumens). I inserted the light into the mount before tightening down the screws all the way, and discovered that when I rotated the light slightly, the mount captured the tail cap of the light, so there was no forward/rear movement, even before the final tightening of the screws. I don't think this was mentioned any where, but is a plus, because there is no way the light can move under the recoil of the gun. Additionally, there is enough space between the barrel/mag and the front of the light, to be able to unscrew it​ for battery changes etc. I am wondering if the body of the light will stay screwed into the tail cap under recoil? As others have also mentioned, the barrel and mag do create a shadow when the light is on, but this in no way impedes the overall functionality of the light. I am very happy with this setup. Here are some pics. Note my brand spanking new titanium mag tube from Kip and Marcy at Carrier Comp, which I also just installed. The only other mod is a Mesa Urbino stock w/riser & Limbsaver.



  2. IWC, thanks for supplying details on your new light mount. As I have not made a decision on which light I want to get yet, how would you recommend ordering one of your mounts?


    Thanks, Mark

  3. Thanks for the interest Mark.


    We're just a few weeks out, all parts are machined, we are just putting a literal finish on them.


    There are some great enhancements coming with the 2nd generation mount, as well we retain the flexibility of the 1st generation in that both .8 inch and 1 inch lights - and new we can mount Scouts as well.


    Thanks for the update! I'm looking forward to seeing what you have come up with. Also interested in your pricing, especially in light of (pun intended) the IWC offering.

  4. I've been watching this thread hoping to get some additional info on the IWC M4 light mount. I'm also interested in what's going on with the new Ava mount. Any updates? In the mean time I could use some recommendations on which light I should be looking for, which would fit both of these mounts. My M4 will be used primarily for home defense. I'm thinking around 400 lumens should be about right. Suggestions?

  5. Vortec MAX: I know that parts can be difficult to find on other platforms too, but I think the M4 is a fairly modest portion of the overall market, compared to the AR for example, which has interchangeable parts between manufacturers. It makes sense that the manufacturers would make parts for the larger markets before considering what looks to be a somewhat limited market with the M4. Just my impression.



    Lrdchaos: I also looked at the Briley Trigger group. They seem to be the only one that have the parts. Which length of pull are you going to get? When I was on their site, I didn't see anything about 922r or even a mention of their stuff being USA manufacture. Did I miss something?

  6. Although I joined this forum a few years ago, I didn't buy my M4 until just a few months ago and have not been on here until recently. I only have one other shotgun which is a Winchester O/U. I have about 200 rounds through the M4 without any problems. I did clean and oil it well before I shot it, as recommended on this forum. I've been doing a lot of reading and trying to learn as much as I can about the M4 on here. One thing I learned for sure is patience. If you want "the" mag tube, it will take 3-4 months, if you want "the" light mount, they are in production = waiting list etc. etc. Certainly a lot different then buying accessories for a Glock or an AR. Anyway, I'm very happy with the M4 and look forward to getting to know people on here and maybe contributing something along the way.
