for attachment to a standard AR15 A post or bayonet lug, what picatinny rail and flashlight combo would you recommend?

Thanks.

GG&G makes a light mount for the front sight tower on an AR. Pic rail on the side, so any light can be mounted.

There are a few picatinny rails out there that attach to the AR bayonet lug. CAA, Crosstac and Promag are some of the manufacturers.

I would recommend any of the dual fuel Streamlight or Surfire lights. The Streamlight are more economical.

A surefire 6p in a 1” ring will do the trick. A little old school, but i ran that set up for a while professionally, it did the job.
