Picking up a light to mount at 12 o'clock on a 14.5 BCM middy. I'm also looking at a handguard that's 13 inches.
So my question is how far back I need to mount the light. It will also have the BCM battle comp, so there will be some gas venting up.
Is there a minimum distance I need to keep the light from the end of the barrel?

Put it where you can use it comfortably. The end of a 13" rail is pretty far out there..

If you put it to close to the muzzle break the lens will get coated with soot, it will need to be cleaned after just a few rounds.

Put some toothpaste on the lens before shooting. The crap rubs right off.
