    Pistol mounted lights

    Will the Surefire X series lights fit on an XD? Or do I need to get a smaller/compact light? I've been browsing the net looking for a light and started to wonder if I should be looking at a specific size light or if any will do.

    I believe they will. My Surefire 300x came with several options for mounting different systems.

    All X300 LED's by Sure-Fire work with universal standard accessory rails, the SureFire Rail Adapter, as well as Mil-Spec Picatinny Rail.

    Is your XD a fullsize or compact or subcompact ??

    Insight Tech has a nicer option for the compact and subcompact type rails. There is only so much room on a compact or subcompact rail for a light to catch the rail indentation and lock up solid. Assuming this is your case ?

    I actually prefer the switch layout on the Insight. I have both.

    All my hand-held lights are Surefire,but,my weapons mounted lights are Streamlight,with the exception of one M951 that was issued to me and I was able to keep it,Streamlighta tlr-1,tlr1s and tlr2 can be had for around $100-150,depending on your geography.My streamlights are not for giggles,they all have seen "work".

    It's this one. That's the fullsize right? Cause the 5.25 is the competition model.

    but,my weapons mounted lights are Streamlight
    I've also looked into these as well. How well do you like them? How would you compare them to Surefire? The only lights that I have actually held/tested are the surefire lights. I'm not real sure why, but whenever I hear/think of a weapons light, I automatically think Surefire. But I am definitely open to suggestions. I just want to make sure I spend my money on a good product that will last. As does everyone else. Thanks for the help.
