I bought this for a 4sevens maelstrom X7 and if you leave the roll/lanyard ring on you can hang it from that in stead of the head of the light for a more comfortable fit :) I used some black leather strap to make an extension for it to reach my belt (custom fit lol) If you want to cut the extra leather strap from your shoulder rig you could use that as well. I stiched mine but you could use velcro or leather glue or even buy a snap kit ;) Pros: Holds flashlight very secure is adjustable that way Cons: If you wear your rig high you cannot attach it to your belt(tie down)

The holster side tie down provides another point of attachment and makes the draw smoother and faster vs the free floating rig. Sliding the tie down back along my belt, pulls the gun tight to my body and keeps if from flopping around. I carry a Surefire Elite pointing DOWNWARD. It draws very smoothly and easily, but is secure enough that is doesn't fall out on its own. The Surefire also has a small clip which I slip over one of the Velcro flaps for extra security, again oriented for a support hand downward draw. Can also hold / conceal ASP or similar flex cuffs folded up. When not in use with a flashlight or cuffs, I fold the velcro flaps to the backside to reduce printing. Gets four stars because the length is not adjustable, this piece is not compatible with the Galco adjustable holster side tie down system, and getting the flashlight re-holstered requires some effort. This size tie down just happens to fit me well with the holster just above my love handle at 5'9". Not long enough if you like to carry up in the armpit.
