    Default Let's talk Surefire forends for the SP5 I'll hopefully soon be getting

    A Surefire forend is a must for me. I will be suppressing this with a 3 lug adapter, not sure which can yet, so I have to get one that will have the spacing to fit it on there. What am I looking at? I'll definitely be SBRing this so I need to find myself a fixed stock while I'm at it too

    The answer is to go for the Laser Devices/Steiner forend.

    I thought Steiner stopped making those forends years ago?

    Also, unless you get an adapter for the light the 3-lug suppressor will not work. Just not enough space for the light bezel & can.

    Sorry for the bad news.

    I remember reading this. Hope this helps visually. I also recall a recent thread or two here.

    That's a good article @6Rstar , it pretty much lays out all the options.

    A couple more would be the Malkoff Devices replacement head for the SureFire foreends: https://malkoffdevices.com/products/...o-fit-surefire but that still does not clear a suppressor.

    Really, your best bet would be to mount a Surefire or KAC picatinny foreend and mount a weapon light like the INFORCE WMLX or a SureFire X300U


    Here's the Malkoff and an AAC TiRant9. Typical 9mm suppressor diameter. Soooooo close!




    It does fit with a skinnier suppressor. The Gemtech Raptor II are a tiny bit thinner at the mount, but now you're basing your suppressor purchase on whether or not it'll clear you weaponlight, and the Raptor is an old suppressor now.

    ^^ I agree. I have a surefire forend and the KAC rail with an Inforce light and almost never use the Surefire. The moral is buy both, because you might want to go for a 1990s aesthetic some days (A2 stock with surefire forend) and a modern setup another day (rail, light, broomstick and can).

    Yup. That's pretty much what I was thinking. Too bad there not really a way to put an SD rubber fore grip on it and make it look like that model

    personally, I'm not a fan of the complete Surefire forends.... they were the go to lighted forend in the 90's, but we are past them now. I'd go with a 1913 or MLOK railed forend, and mount a light that way. You will likely get a brighter light with more throw that way, as I'm not sure what output of light you get with the complete Surefire forends anymore? You could also upgrade lights this way, as light technology seems to change faster than computer CPUs anymore.

    That is just my preference.
