    What tactical light for M&P 40 compact?

    What tactical light would you guys recommend for an M&P .40 compact? Also which make and model of tactical lights will fit my gun? Do the same tac lights that work on the full size models work on the compact ones?

    Generally no, the lights that will fit on a full size gun will not fit on a compact or sub compact because the rail is too small. The only choices for a sub-compact light that I know of are:

    Insight X2 (with or without laser)

    and

    Streamlight TLR-3

    Which is kinda surprising seeing as flashlights in general are getting brighter and smaller.
    Who knows, hopefully there will be more options soon.

    There is also this Viridian laser/light combo or just laser that's been on the market for a few months. I was looking at buying one for my M&P 9c. One of the primary reasons was that it sits flush with the front of the gun. They also sell holsters for their laser/light compatible guns.
