    Few more mods to the accelerator.
    New low mount 45degree piccatinny mount so I can mount the torch lower instead of above the scope.
    New lower front mount piccatinny and vertical fore grip.
    I know it looks tacticool but both these mods also make the rifle much nicer to point when shouldered standing.
    The vertical foregrip especially helps with supporting the front whilst standing.
    I would have mounted the torch under lithe front if it wasn't for the vertical fore grip.
    I have always found the torch mounted above the scope to be a bit of a pain when shooting bunnies out the window of the truck so hopefully this lower side mount helps with that too, if not I'll have to try something else.

    Mate that is very cool. Agree re the torch mounting . Never liked them hanging off the scope or above the barrel particularly with a stainless barrel as I found the light wash reflection in the scope ruins the scope picture. And I also like the foregrip. I had the same one on my evil rifle and mounted the torch in a 45 degree mount on a rail on the side of the handguard hanging down and managed to get it in the perfect spot so I could turn the torch on and off with my thumb ( lenser 7.2 torch with button on end cap) while holding the rifle in shooting position.
    Nice rifle @dannyb.

    it's getting there.....I have a tail mounted remote switch which attaches to the stock where ever I decide to mount it ? haven't decided on that yet will need to see what works may even have it on the vertical fore grip. waiting to try the torch set up at night time to see if I get any of that horrible light wash you mention with the torch mounted where it is.
    to be fair there are options there too, I could wrap the barrell in camo tape or similar temporarily until the over barrel suppressor is done, the suppressor with a neoprene sleeve fitted may in itself may solve that issue anyway

    So did you shorten the barrel at all ?

    On a side note tested the torch mount out last night and no light wash off the barrel so that's a bonus

    I tried to see if they could do one in 17wsm, considering they already do a 22 magnum and a 5.7x28.
    Thought it would be a piece of piss for them.
    never heard back. Mind you the guys at 55six hinted that they might not.
