I'd like to mount my SF Aviator on both my home defense rifle and my A-Alpha helmet on the picatinny rail. At first I was going with a simple VLTOR low-profile mount then I though that it would probably be better if I could adjust the light's cant on my helmet (could help those night's bike ride). I've searched most major AR accessory maker and didn't found anyone that did what I had in mind.

This one is pretty interesting but lacks the picatinny attachment option:

So I was wondering if anyone here mounted their IR illumation devices on their helmet, and if you used any kind of special mounts.

Or maybe I should just stick with a dedicated light for the rifle. Opinions?

If you mount the rail at the required "cant", you could then use one of these to quickly change between weapon and helmet!!
