Hole gun muzzle light

    Just messing around with an old idea. I often find myself trying to shoot up into a hole or small wreck where I can't seem to hold my gun and flashlight at the same time. It's the ARC light, which is powered by a single AAA battery, weighs less an ounce, and is depth rated to 100'. Time will tell if it will hold up to typical wear and tear.

    Nice work tin man! You up and running again? I may be trying my hand at another round of hybrids and would love to have a source for some custom muzzles!

    Might be cool to be able to swap that little flashlight with a shark spike too? Just a thought.

    Neat idea on being able to swap the light for a spike! I like that.

    I'm not quite up and running yet, but close. I had to do a lot of things "the hard way" on this muzzle. I should be set up in the new place in another 6 weeks or so.

    good to know! Not sure when the hybrids will happen. I really liked the aimrite barrel for the last one but not sure that I could source them anymore. But if I am able to source a high quality carbon barrel I would think of doing a run of hybrids so Ill let you know.

    Hybrids with a square section rear half or something nice & shapely?

    something a little more shapely, I dont really like hybrids personally but I have had a couple of guys asking me to build a couple more.

    It will evolve from this one. Its hard to tell from these pictures but it does have some nice lines, not your typical square block. Hoping to give it a little more character but similar concept.... notice that awesome muzzle?

    Sorry for the derail Tin Man!

    No problem . . . you do beautiful work! Regarding shapely hybrids, I've been wanting to build a hybrid where the tube extends all the way back to the trigger mech, like some of Gil Gacula's designs. That gives you some additional flexibilty with shaping the wood, because it really doesn't need to add much (if any) strength.

    That's a sweet set up, what a cool light, looks like one of those tiny maglites. Very flush fit.

    I think that was one of the coolest looking guns I have seen to date.... oh to have a CNC machine!
