Does anyone here know if there are any weapon lights that would fit on the bayonet lug of an M1 carbine?
Thanks in advance.

I don't know of any, but I can probably explain why there isn't one.

Puttling a bayonet on a rifle changes the zero, sometimes dramaticly.

Putting a flash light on the bayonet lug would do the same thing.

Try it. zero your carbine. Shoot it at 100 yards and then put a bayonet on it and shoot it again. It isn't gonna hit the same place.

A light on the bayonet lug would do the same thing.

When people mounted lights and such on Carbines they mounted them on top.

Designed for the AR (http://www.botachtactical.com/iti.html), but should be close enough for the M1 carbine?

The bayonet lug on the M1 Carbine is quite a bit smaller then the lug on the M16/M4. I really doubt that would work.

Maybe a Ultimak with an offset light mount?

Like the V-Tac mounted across the top?

Come to think of it, I'd like to have one too.

I wouldn't be all that concerned about throwing off accuracy within the typical distances of a light- it ought to still be minute of critter or bad dude. If it's too dark and too far to identify with a light- maybe it hadn't ought to be shot at.
