    Affordable light that fits glock and picatinny rails

    Looking for a LED light new or used that isn't $300 an preferably around 50 but I might go to 80 or 100.
    It needs to fit both on a GLOCK 20 and picantinny rails or be under 40 so I can just buy two of them.

    Ive looked at the big names ones and some of them cost x2 as much as some of the guns Ive owned,

    This wasn't really a want to buy add, more of a suggestion add but feel free to PM me if your the source of such a light.

    The most band for buck light, in my opinion... It's not a $300 Surefire.... it's not a $10 no name you'll find on a self at Wal-Mart

    Streamlight TLR-1 Tactical Illuminator Flashlight White LED Fits

    I prefer Streamlight products. I use Streamlight TLR lights on my handguns and shotgun. I use Streamlight Polytac's on my rifles. I carry a Streamlight Stylus at work. I carry a Streamlight ProTac 2L when I'm not at work. I keep a Streamlight Polytac on my nightstand along with the TLR-1 that's on my M&P45.

    I like Streamlights.

    I use the Streamlight TLR-3 on all my guns. I'm looking at the new TLR-4.

    +1 on the Streamlight tlr 1. I don't abuse mine but it frequently get's out to the range, and many a times I take it off my gun just so I can use it as a flashlight.

    Good rule of thumb. Always buy the best and it will not fail when you need it.

    I use the Browning "Tacticle Hunter Alpha" lights under my railed guns.....70 (or 90?) lumens. 4" total length, 3/4" diameter that run 2-2 1/2 hours constantly on a single AA battery!! Lightweight, durable, tailcap switch etc. COST.....@$30.00 to $35.00.

    Then I slip them into quick disconnect mounts available from "tacticle" suppliers (including Optics Planet). They run @ $25.00 to $35.00. The only calculating you have to figure is how much rail you have so the tail switch sits just where you want it ahead of the trigger guard. (This is where I have different brands of quick disconnect holders).

    Anyhow, you end up spending $60.00-$70.00 ponies and end up with a kick ass light system!

    I tried to upload a photo of this setup under my Beretta....hopefully it worked!

    I have one of the protecs and while I think it is a good light it also has one major (what I consider to be) disadvantage. It's a push button system as opposed to a a rotating switch system and it's EXTREMELY easy to accidentally turn on. I've thrown it in my range bag on my glock 19 and accidentally turned it on. I've accidentally turned it on putting in the safe. It' pretty much always turns itself on when put in my universal tactical holster.

    If it's not Insight Tech or Surefire I'm not going to run it on anything I shoot with.

    Forget everything else, and keep your gear with the GSA and DLA suppliers. They have been tested, busted and trusted in field trials and down range.

    Everything else is just sup par gear.

    I like the Nebo on my night stand gun. I don't know how you would put it on a carry gun that it WOULDN'T turn itself on. The sliding switch is gonna find its way on. But for the house, etc... It's ok. I have one on a rail on a Mossberg 12 ga...stands up to the recoil, handy for me, and I'll buy it, but may not find myself shelling out the dough for a high-dollar light.

    I use the Aim Sports 150 Lumen Tactical Compact Light on My Ruger SR9 & SR40 Compacts. Works great, has a single button on bottom of the unit, ahead of your trigger guard and it has quick release.

    You can't beat the price!

    J&G Sales has police trade in M-3 lights for $49.00. I bought several and about half came in the box and appeared unissued. They are simple direct and to the point and I have never had a problem with them.
