S&S Precision- HK416 LOWPRO MOUNT
Dear SP blog readers:
Sorry for the late blog updating , I have been busy for a few month and now ” I AM BACK” and I promise will bring you readers more detail and quality of gear review and blog updates.
I will be updating regarding to S&S Precision products and mystery from time to time this year.
Hope you all will enjoy the reading.
“NOW LETS GET STARTED”
From the official:
S&S Precision operations include product development and manufacturing. We are compelled to innovate tactical gear and obsessed to do things that others can’t or won’t.
Extraordinary customers require unique solutions. This goes beyond the common practices exercised from behind an engineer’s desk. The crew at S&S precision eliminates the disparity between end user requirements and design/material/manufacturing expertise. We merge technical knowledge with real world experience to advance tactical equipment.
From Silent Professional View:
S&S Precision has the most advance concept and development into the real actual product ability and most of their gear may look simple and easy but all the products are made from years of experience from the operator, you can see from every product that S&S made.
When people usually look at S&S products the first time, most of them have this feeling that ” Psss..this is nothing, it is so easy and why their price is so high?” Well let me tell you guys who think like that, All the S&S products are highly design for operations purpose and they follow the RULE “K.I.S.S”= Keep It Simple Stupid. In real combat we dont need fancy shooting pose, fancy changing magazine moves , fancy products with too many functions. What does the real warrior in the front line needs is the reliable product and easy to get hands on without reading pages of complicated manuals.
The price of the S&S Precision products are in the med-high level, let me tell you why , because SS comes with design from NSW operator combat experience and opinion, those cant buy with money and they make every products with design, they though of it first and they did it so it is their design.
To those cheap Sh*t replica manufacturer: You only copy the shape and look of the product with the cheap material that breaks all the time but you are not going to get the real quality. There is always a saying ” Cheap Sh*t aint good, Good Sh*t aint Cheap”
“Lets look at into the LOWPRO MOUNT from S&S Precision today! “
Usually when people hear about ” MOUNTs” on the weapon, they think it is the round type which holds the flash lights, lasers but SS brings you the brand new concept of weapon light mounting system, this product as you see from the above photo is the 2011 version of the S&S Precision lowpro mount, the body of the mount is coated to light tan color and it is made by fully CNC, it is very easy to assemble into the weapon.
This mount is specially design to put Surefire M600/M300 in to the HK416 rail but it also can fit into standard rails comes with 3, 6, 9, 12 positions. Also when you use this mount, you can switch from left and right hand shooting with no trouble turning on the light.
Why does it called ” LOWPRO” it is because when you mounted on your weapon, it is very hard to see the mount just like it never existed. If you want to see the mount bar, you need to see from both up and down side from the rail.

You can see the S&S PRECISION marking, it is the authentic product details.
I dont know if all you readers who has the lowpro mount has some issue when you first got the product and trying to mount on your HK416 with the Tango down grip. Well I did get into trouble and now I would like to share how to make sure the right position of the mounting this product.
There are 3-4 positions you can mounted on your HK416, let me share with you the secrets of the mounting positions of each.
“This is how I and usually people will mount the “Lowpro” mount with the grip”
As you can see from the photo below, the grip and the surefire M600 has a little bit of space which makes the shooter of the rifle needs to tag his arm real tight on the shooting position to turn on the M600, with this position shooters usually feel uncomfortable with their shoulders and costs them stress on the arm and hand.
I got stock here for a while and trying to figure how to make use of this light and mount, I asked my friend which he told me ” It is not possible because of the tango down grip, you need to change your grip in order to fit into the right position” But let me tell you something : I don’t believe that because it is not making any sense, so I try to figure out more how the hell I am going to put it into the right position.
” MID FRONT POSITION”
After few hours of thinking, I checked the PDF file and looking forward to find the solution but which I saw there is another position that can be put with the mount, in the photo below it shows that you can move the mount forward on the front rail, so I did and lets take a look at the photo below. As you can see the flash light head is already pointing out of the rail at that point, I think it is pretty good because when the light turns on, it will have less shade from the barrel or suppressor.
But when you put the mount at the front position the operator will feel also little uncomfortable because you will need to extend your thumb to switch on the light, unless the shooter has a large hand and long finger or else it is quick uncomfortable.
“FRONT POSITION WITH OUT SUPRESSOR”
“FRONT POSITION WITH AAC SUPPRESSOR”
After the front position I was satisfied a little but it still makes me cant go to bed properly, After checking the operator photo and I told myself ” if the operator can attach the mount into the right position, then we can too”.
Although I am little dum and slow but I never give up!!! After another hour of brain juice grinding, I finally figure it out how the hell they put the mount into the right position. It is simple as hell that is how SS product works and yet I am so use to complicated products that I did not think it was that easy and I have to go around the world to figure the simplest thing. LOL

THE GUIDE TO PLACE THE LOWPRO MOUNT INTO THE RIGHT POSITION WILL BE AS FOLLOW
- Remove your rail from the main body
- Place the tango down grip into the med position best for balance and shooting
- Then place the mount at the position for your finger
- Tight both screw and you are ready to rock and roll.
PS( What people usually makes mistake and get stock like me is that we put the mount first then we try to put the grip to the rail)
“FINALY MED POSITION”
“CLOSE UP LOOK”
This position makes the shooter press the light very easy and fast, also has less shade during the light is turn on. I wish this help those who was stock just like me and I am happy to share this information so that “YOU DONT NEED TO BUY OR CHANGE YOUR GRIP TO FIT THE MOUNT”
