TangoDown’s FFA-01 Front Sight Flashlight Adapter, released in 2012, was one of the first attempts at integrating a front sight and 12 o’clock mounted weapon light. The FFA-01 was essentially a specially designed front sight tower that could mount to an extended rail and encompass the bezel of the Surefire X300. It worked well and represented an evolutionary step forward for 12 o’clock mounted weapon lights.
TangoDown is reviving the idea, albeit in a slimmed down format, with the introduction of the Light Portal Front Sight (FFA-02) for the Surefire XC-1. The original FFA-01 was made from steel but the new FFA-02 is machined from aluminum (hard anodized finish). The combination of aluminum construction and the svelte XC-1 should make for a compact, lightweight set up.
TangoDown is excited to announce a new item for the tactical community! The Light Portal Front Sight (FFA-02) is a combination weapon light mount & front sight all in one compact package. The FFA-02 was developed to give shooters the ability to place a weapon light on the 12:00 rail without obstructing the front sight. This weapon light mount accommodates the SureFire™ XC-1 Pistol Light, creating a lightweight option if you’re looking to reduce the weight on your carbine. Maintaining a hand forward shooting position makes activating the XC-1 weapon light easy and quick.
