Impact Weapons M4 light mount with 8-1/2" Mesa Tactical Truckee forend, well they work together?


Recommended Posts

As the title says... I have the IW mount installed on my M4 and I was curious if I bought the 8-1/2" Truckee mount would they be able to work together with no issues and/or modifications needed for either? 


Thanks for everyone's time and info./input in advance, peace.

Both would likely fit, I'm just not sure how a light would work out if you installed it on the IWC mount. The tailcap may interfere with the Truckee rail. If you're not opposed to modifying the rail, you could probably make it work if there was some interference.


Thanks @StrangerDanger, Yeah I bought the IW mount mainly for the sling swivels.  But I did get the version with the 1913 rail piece, installing that on the side of the IW mount may not work with the Mesa forend.  I am interesting in trying it out and reporting back my findings to the forum members.

Well guys and gals, it looks like it’s going to work.  I got the Truckee installed today, but I couldn’t find my Streamlight ProTac HL-X.  It looks like it should clear it with the scout mounting.  But I’ll report back with pictures of that, worst case I’ll have to install the 1913 pic rail I’ve got with my IW mount.

Try to even out the gap between the side of the IWC mount. It looks like one side bolt was tightened fully. You want it to have a similar sized gap on both sides. 

Will do sir... I didn't have the correct bitset on me when I installed the Truckee.  I only had star bits and not the correct hex bits.  I almost tightened it down with the wrong bit and would have more than likely stripped it out and/or damaged the screw. ?

Have you tried the light on it yet? I’m concerned a Scout light’s Z68 tailcap would make contact with the rail. 

No, I haven't had the chance to.  I have my Streamlight ProTac HL-X installed on my Ruger PCC at the moment, so I'll swap it over when I get off of work this morning if I've got the time.

The moment of truth has arrived… my Streamlight ProTac HL-X fits like a glove on the IW mount and works well with the Truckee!


The light’s tail cap knurling rubs just slightly on the Truckee, but you can still take the tail cap off of the light when it’s mounted.
