LaRue Tactical MK31 Pen Flare QD Mount LT663
This handy piece of hardware was the result of a satellite-call from a
soldier in Iraq. He said that at checkpoints, they need to launch a flare at
vehicles that don't stop, as part of the escalation-of-force rules. If a vehicle
doesn't stop for the flare, the soldier will need his weapon ready. The problem
was; the issued MK-31 flare launchers were hard to find, and dig out of a pocket
in a hurry. He suggested some kind of weapon mount, making it easy to launch a
flare with a weapon shouldered, at the ready. As per his suggestion, we created
the LT663 MK-31 mount. Unfortunately, the call was dropped, and we didn't get
the soldier's name so if you read this, please send us an email, or give us a
call. We'd like to show our appreciation for such a good idea.
The LT663 mounts the Mk31 launcher to any mil-spec picatinny rail using a standard LT271 mount When mounted on the left rail, the flare can be launched with a flick of the thumb, with the weapon trained on target. Machined from solid billet aluminum, it is built for abuse, and takes only seconds to install.
The LT663 comes complete with LT271 mount, QD adjustment wrench, vial of blue Locktite and Instructions.
