I was looking for a product to allow offset mounting of either a Surefire M600 Scout or a P2X Fury in a offset “high” location along with a 12 O’Clock mounted DBAL (future reference will also include a PEQ-15 I hope).
Currently I was only able to see success with a Larue offset mount – cost over $120.00. The Magpul at retail of $30.00 seemed like a good option. Sadly, that was not the case. It works well at being tight and tucked into the rail, but to tight for use with a DBAL on my current rail systems of a VLTOR VIS and Daniel Defense Lite 12.0 FSP. Changing rail systems may completely make my photos and information, useless to you. The video Magpul produced for Brownell’s shows the RLM working fine with a DBAL, but on a specific Geissele rail.

When the light is pushed as far forward as possible to allow interface with a DBAL mounted as far forward as possible, issues arise. Based on eyeballing it, I do not believe that this would work with the PEQ-15 on this rail either. This would seem to work for people with 7” rails and 10.5" or longer barrels – M-4 or MK-18 style weapons.
Attempted to use RLM 12 O’Clock with DBAL at 12. The light wouldn't poke around the DBAL.
I was finally able to use the RLM, by moving the DBAL back behind the FSP. This setup would work better on a non FSP rail.
Attempted to use Larue with DBAL at 12 on DD lite, no go. It wouldn’t mount as the light head of the Fury was to big and would hit the side of the DBAL before I could even try to lock the mount on.

A Unity Tactical FUSION system might solve my rail/light/DBAL woes with the 12.0 FSP setup. This setup should be inbound in the near future.
