I went this route too:

Got the UE07 tailcap/cheapo switch kit, and the SR7 picitinny mount switch, plus the rail kit and adapter. I bought two rail kits 'cause I thought it'd look silly with only one rail on the right side. Might put a laser on the left rail eventually.











Left rail.




Works pretty good!

I personally feel that the side rail on the left side is too close to the charging handle and the biggest issue is that adding something to the rail makes it worse.

I'm not too worried about it. When you pull the handle out, it's well clear of the rail (behind it). It might interfere with the opening of the handle if you put something big on the left rail though.

Dremel with cutting head. I tried to polish it with a different attachment but didn't look good. Still have to clean it up a bit.

Very cool, good luck. Look forward to seeing what you end up hanging on that left rail...

This is why I use hand tools. More control and better finish partytime

That looks like my AR set-up with the MX3. i would like to use the empty space in the upper, but I may end up doing something like this. thanks for the suggestion.

Too lazy to do that. And the little cutting/milling head I used on the dremel is actually pretty easy to control. The problem was that I tried to get clever and use a little dense-cloth (not really sure what it's made out of) polishing head to make it smoother, and it wound up turning the plastic a lighter shade of black as u see in the picture. Oops. I have a set of fine hand files I'll probably take to it to smoove it out. :-)

I felt the same way...don't bother whatsoever with the charging handle. I don't intend to put anything on that rail other than the rail cover I have on it now though.

I beg to differ...have you seen my cut? Best one so far IMO, just need a lot of Dremel practice! Haha

Surefire E1B alternative

Post by Ezveedub on Fri Sep 28, 2012 11:12 am

I found a cheaper alternative to installing a light in the Vector. If you want the exact same fitment as the original light package, get the PowerTac Cadet flashlight. PowerTac has a promo right now and includes the pressure switch and a weapon mount (which you don't need). It's comes with the CREE XPG R5 Led head rated at 300 lumens. The Cadet flash light is exactly the same dimensions as the Surefire E1B. I just installed this Cadet light last night with the Kriss light mount and one rail. It assembles exactly the same as the Surefire light. If I get a chance, I'll post some pics. The Cadet has 4 light settings and strobe, all activated or changed by rotating the bezel. Only thing else needed is some Velcro to mount the switch. I actually got some of the Streamlight pressure switch rubber mounts for the rail to mount the switch to.

Here are some pics of the PowerTac installed just like the Surefire E1B. It installs exactly like the Kriss instructions state for the Surefire light. I'm in the process of adding industrial Velcro to mount the pressure switch to the rail now.

Here's the pressure switch mounting I did just now. I decided to have have two options for mounting the switch.

Nice.

For ~$80 plus the cost of the adapter from Kriss, that PowerTac light seems like a good deal.

How does the quality of the flashlight seem?

The light's build quality seems perfectly fine. It is made in China of course, but its designed in the US out of North Carolina. The pressure switch is not like a Surefire or Streamlight pressure switch, but it is made very well and works. It has three pressure tabs in it your can feel. Also, I've seen the local distributor selling their entire line up of lights at every local gun show I've been to, so it seems they are really pushing and supporting this brand. They do show some torture tests on the web site, but that is always subjective. For the price and light emitting power, I had to give it a try.

ordered tonight, id say quality is worse than surefire but you can buy 2 replacements of these before you get to price of surefire, couldnt find a better deal than link posted that came with remote switch. looks nice, doesn't stick out as far as surefire.

like seeing the magpul rail covers sized, i have the XTM handstop here, still no kriss to put it on.

Same here. Where can the XTM handstop be found?

As for the Cadet light, it's still working after blowing about 80 rounds tonight at the range. Very little, if any residue, on the bezel. I wipe it right off when cleaning the Kriss tonight.

Ezveedub, that is pretty sweet. was it hard to get the pressure switch through the slot in the upper? it looks thick.

i got if off amazon, they are sold out now, i read something they were chinese knock offs on amazon but it came in magpul package w/ magpul emblem on it, they seem to be real.

if you coat the flashlight lense w/ oil its easier to clean later.
