Arisaka Side Scout Mount – Pre-Order Exclusively Through SKD Tactical

Arisaka’s new Side Scout Mount is now available for pre-order from SKD Tactical.

Machined from 6061 T-6 Aluminum and Type III anodized, the Arisaka Side Scout Mount is designed to tuck your Scout light up under your laser (ATPIAL laser/illuminator series, including the ATPIAL-C, AN/PEQ15, and LA-5/PEQ) and Steiner DBAL I2, A3, and D2. Specifically, it replaces the stock Picatinny rail adapter with a low profile mount for M-Lok handguards.

The SSM is compatible with the Surefire M300A, M300B, M300C, M600B, M600C, M600P, M600U, M600V, M600DF, Streamlight Protac Rail Mount 1, 2 and HL-X, and Arisaka 300 and 600 Series.

Under development for some time, its first sneak peek was in July on Instagram, in a post by @smctactical.

Then in August, he shared another photo which showed the Arisaka logo.

Currently, only the Black version is available, with shipping dues on 15 January, 2019. Pre-order yours at www.skdtac.com/Arisaka-Defense-Side-Scout-Mount-M-Lok-p/ari.240.

    Can someone explain the actual benefits to “tucking” a light directly under a PEQ vs using the mount it came with? Good quality product but seems like its a solution looking for a problem.

      It makes more space available for your hand.

      The mlok is sweet. What about the Geissele HK in the pictures though?

      • Will says:

        A Geissele 416 version is done, just waiting on free machine time. We introduced the m-lok version first since it’s the largest market.

          Will, these looks great! I’m assuming the Geissele 416 version will also work with their MKI, MKII, and MKIII SMR rails?

          Where you will be able purchase the HK version?

        • Alex says:

          Looking forward to the 416 version. There aren’t many options for those of us running 416’s. You typically see guys direct mounting with washers or adding a 1913 section and hanging it off that. The ability to tuck under our PEQs should free up some hand space and reduce bulk.
