Picture write up. You have this modded strife your going to take to a laser tag arena. You want a retaliator fore grip but you need a flashlight. What are you going to do, put the flashlight on the top tac rail or get rid of the grip, well I present to you, my very own tactical flashlight grip.

Open the light up and gut it

Cut the flashlight out from the switch and batt holder, and set it a side.

Next, take your grip and open it up. Bring out the dremle and cut the screw column out and sand it.

Next, cut out a spot for your switch

Next,cut out a hole for your switch, their is a lot of guessing in this step.

Then test fit it.

Once it fits nicely, take it out and take the light module and test to see were you want it.

Make sure it won't interfere with the black tac point.

Once you figure out where, drill the holes and make sure its right, then drill a tiny hole right behind for the wire. Hook every up and hot glue the light in. I cut off the other pegs and sanded them down

Looks good, although wouldn't it be easier to just epoxy a 9-led flashlight from the dollar store to the grip? The writeup is easy to follow though so props for that.

I guess you could but I had a light taking up room, and these is nice because you have the posh button right their so you can turn it on quickly.

Not to be a grammar nazi, but this is poor english. One tip would to try 'gutting' a high lumen flashlight for the LED/s inside, and use higher capacity batteries to power it for longer lifetime. Great idea mounting it to the foregrip, though!
