I took a look at the Larue website, and I like the QD mounts... but how do they attach to the scope? Do they only work with certain scopes?

Their mounts will work on the Picatinny type scope bases. (Linked below) It is best if the base has the solid bars like the one you see on my rifle. The ones with the hollowed out middle will work, but it doesn't work as well and will start to deform the base and mount.

I may have misunderstood your question. For regular scopes, they attach like regular rings. Their rings have the lever quick detach mated to it though. If that is what you are referring to, they are quite pricey IMO. If you want a quick detach mount for something like a 1" or 30mm scope, I would use Warne Maxima quick detach rings. They are made well and much cheaper.

But Larue does make some sweet stuff.

I wish they made a lower 1913 rail for the 10/22. I'm trying to get my scope a little closer to the barrel. I got a Kidd low rail on the way but it's not a true 1913. If it's low enough I will live with it. I'm not using QD rings anyway.

Seriously, I like the G2 LED for a weapon light. Its light weight, there are lightweight mounts available (check out V-Tac light mounts) the LED will last a virtual lifetime. Buy from a police supply house and stay away from retail gunshops that cater to those with money to spare. I buy from a gunshop in my area that sells there lights at good prices (~$35 for a G2) and sell the batteries at just above cost ($21 for a box of 12). That beats everything on-line since I dont have to pay shipping.
Besides Surefire, Fenix UC35 is my favorite tactical flashlight. It is one of the daily portable flashlights, mainly because it is compact and easy to carry. The battery life is long and the price is moderate, making it ideal for purchasing multiple flashlights as an emergency.

I put an Ozark 500-lumen pistol light on a rail on mine. $30 on Amazon. Bright enough to shoot accurately to 50 yd in the dead of night.

Sure fire x-300 or x-400. You can buy a lot of different brands but they are the best.

Streamlight Protac 2L-X is really tough to beat for the $. I have a bit of a flashlight addiction so I have lots of flashlight's ranging from $400 Sure-fire's to $10 no name brands. My favourite all-around is still the Protac 2L-X. I paid right around $50/EA for all of mine. You can run them on 2 123 batteries or 1 18650. I have a bunch of Nitecore 18650 rechargeable batteries and they last one lasts a very long time with a single charge.

Olight makes a magnetic mount "X-WMO2" that would work with most lights. I use a Fenix FD41 in it and clamp under the barrel, use my thumb to turn on and off. I switch it around on my air rifles or 22's.

Use Surefire on my defensive weapons.

I've owned several of these, with good results, they tell you to look for the Registered Trademark, if you find one that's great, but I think they are all made in the same plant in China. I don't buy any that aren't from a us ware house, mainly because the wait times from China are ridiculous.
They are dirt cheap but tough. I lost one in our only snow this winter out of my pocket in the driveway, in a foot of snow, had to watch for it as the snow melted, finall found it in the slush and water it survived being run over an was dry inside and lit right off, no problems.
I ordered another one that looked identical on eBay, that was just slightly smaller, so now I have one in each of our cars and another in my pocket, I really like using the rechargeable18650 lithium batteries, and keep one charged up all the time so when one goes down, I just swith to a charged battery and pop the tired one in the charger. You can get several options for ordering them including charger and several batteries, mix and match.
I can attest that the T-6 LED will light up my shop building out at 100yds.
They all claim unbelievable Lumens So don't worry about it they all work the same!
I'll add that the ones with copper or chrome plated reflector are stronger if you find them, I did get one a long time ago that had a white plastic reflector that melted, so I watch for that, they may be in the really cheap lights.
