2. I'll tell you that I don't recommend the mount from Surefire (plastic version)...frickin thing broke trying to get it to close on my G2...I've got a VLTOR aluminum mount arriving today, I'll let you know how it is...
I'm pretty sure the tape switch for the G2L is the same that is used on the 6P series. It is the XM0# (i.e. XM07 for 7" cable).
You can get them at opticsplanet.com for like $120! The cheaper UE07 I don't think will work (it's for the L4).
You can find the Tacstar and G&P stuff on eBay pretty cheap. I have no experience with these products as they are designed for airsoft use, but the design is really so simple that I can't imagine them not working. I mean, come on, it's simply completing a circuit with pressure!
I'm using the 5 position CAA mount with my G2L. It's nice because you can position it so your thumb will activate the light's rear switch if your running a VFG. No sloppy tapeswitch wires.
It's really hard to see in the pictureof my rifle below, but it works great if you can put up with a little bit bulkier mount. If you check out the CAA website they have a cool flash display of it mounted on an AR.
Nikon, I have a remote pressure pad switch with tailcap around somewhere and Im not using it. Im not sure if thats what your looking for or not but if your interested, shoot me a PM. I opened it but never used it.
A little warning about the multi-positional CAA mount. I had one before I got the Vltor and it cracked the first time I was tightening it down. Now, I am sure I overtightened it, however, I didn't feel it took too much to break it. I really liked how you could rotate it to different positions, but it broke pretty easily. YMMV.
JB, that sounds like a fine idea. Do you live out in that direction? I usually go shooting NW of Tucson off Avra Valley road. There is hardly ever anyone out there. And thanks for the compliments. I just about it have it where I want it.
