Thread: Announcement: AVA Mod1 for the Benneli M4

    That's a magazine clamp mount design. Plenty of them available. They have cons as well. Namely slipping and the fact you can no longer disassemble the firearm without tools.

    I may have missed it here in the thread somewhere and if so, please forgive me. Just received my mount and was going to install it but was wondering if there are any particular torque specs for the screws and any particular pattern for tightening recommended - I'm assuming star pattern like an automotive wheel but, hey, I'm no engineer nor do I play one on the internet and there were no instructions in the package.

    On a side note, you have some design and execution skills - just saying. This mount is NOT, repeat NOT, done justice by the pictures in this thread. You have to get it in your hands to really understand just how well this is designed and made. Impressive.

    Thank you sir!!! Appreciate the comments.

    The screws should be torqued to no more than 20 INCH pounds.

    Generally I torque the top two on the mount, then the bottom two.

    For the light, same thing, the two short screws should absolutely be torque'd first and the bottom of the light clamp is then secured.

    Finally got my personal mount painted burnt bronze to match my M4. I paired an IWC backbone with a Surefire KE2-A 500 lumen output head together. I then machined a Scout light tailcap to remove the shroud. The cap was the. Painted with the rest.

    Looking Good!

    A lot less thigh gap on the mount with the IWC light body.

    Got in a Surefire M600IB last night to test on the Benelli. Unfortunately the 1.37” bezel is too large to fit with the Ava Tactical mount. I was on the fence concerning the IntelliBeam function of this light until I got to mess with it for a while. The reduction in lumens with shining the light on a close range object like a wall works great. There isn’t much or any delay in how fast the light output changes. Bouncing 600 lumens off a white wall 10’ away will make your eyes hurt. This dials it back significantly to like 100 lumens. You don’t have to do anything special with the switch. No modes or complicated crap. Just mash the momentary/constant on button and it does all the work for you.

    I migrated the unit unit to my AR15 and stole its 500 lumen Standard lamp for the second Benelli.

    I’m kind of glad it doesn’t fit the Benelli, or is have to buy two more.

    Mmmmm...makes overmatch a breeze when you light someone up who has an IB light! :P

    Might be an issue. I’ll have to test that. The path is pretty narrow for it to dim due to that long fluted pipe that covers the sensor. I’m not sure if you’re dueling flashlights would be of much benefit other than blinding both of you.

    The light from these units is really clean. One of the best I’ve seen from Surefire. It might be from the larger bezel.

    I wish they could do it with a smaller bezel. I saw that when they came out
