Impact Weapons Components shows no signs of slowing the flow of MOUNT-N-SLOTs. Their latest MOUNT-N-SLOT is one that I have been looking forward to for a long time. The SMC Light MOUNT-N-SLOT is designed to allow you to attach many of the most popular weapon mounted lights to any size Magpul MOE Hand Guards (carbine, midlength, and rifle length) or Bushmaster ACR hand guards.
The SMC Light MOUNT-N-SLOT attaches to the side of the MOE Hand Guards and then cantilevers the light up toward to the front sight base (FSB). This light placement allows the bezel of the light to extend beyond the FSB which minimizes shadowing and it places the tailcap switch directly under thumb when the rifle is gripped naturally. I have found this placement to work very well.
The SMC’s modular design allows it to work with many of the most popular lights for weapon mounting. It works with the Surefire Scout lights via direct attachment. With the addition of a proprietary flashlight ring, it will also allow you mount lights like the Surefire G2X, G2L, 6P, Streamlight Polytac and more. If you ever decide to change your light, the rings will be available for purchase separate from the mount so you can replace just the ring and not the entire mount.
IWC machines the SMC from Billet 6061-T6 Aluminum and then tops them off with with a durable black hard anodized finish. All of the unnecessary material is milled away to keep the weight down to 1.820 ounces. The SMC Light MOUNT-N-SLOT comes with all the hardware and tools that you need to mount it on your hand guards.

Pretty interesting design. I like how they made it so it is modular and can work with various lights in multiple applications.
