I love maglites... They are bright, cheap and invincible... An idea I've had for quite some time is to get scope rings and use them to hold a mag lite to my AK instead of a surefire or something else stupidly expensive...

Think it will work? Lol

Also I just got the T6 stock set for my saiga AKand can finally actually do something like this

Yes it can be achieved, on my current coyote setup I have something similar. I use two scope rings bolted together at the rail mount side so it looks some what like a figure 8, one of the scope circles goes around my scope, the other around my mag light. I am also working on making this a one piece setup, waiting for my aluminum to come in.

I do know someone makes this flashlight holder that has a post the size of a 12 ga. shell to be used with a shotgun sidesaddle to hold it and that's what I use on my HD gun -- LCD bulb, red lens, pressure switch on semi-pistol grip (you can see the wire).

I don't know anything about scope rings, is there specific size I should be looking for?

I'm gonna get the normal little maglite from Walmart for like 20$ and probably just some cheapo wal mart rings too since I'm not looking for a perfect zero on my flash light haha

Duct tape works. It even keeps airplanes flying.
