    If you are going to use the TLR, or any other light that squeezes the frame rails, on a G22 use extreme caution. There have been may cases of reduced reliability with this combination. The short explanation is that the squeezing of the frame rails increases the rigidity of the frame increasing slide velocities. This will cause the slide to "outrun" the magazine and cause some non standard stoppages. With that being said, increasing the power of the mag springs does NOT always fix the problem. I know of at least one large, mid west agency that sent their brand new G22s back to Glock for G17s. I personally witnessed three cases of this on the range yesterday. 1 was TLR related. We'll see if new mag springs fix the problem. If you have a G22 I would stick with the SF lights. They do not squeeze the frame and I have not seen any problems with them.

    I've got 3 weapon mounted lights:

    Insight M3 on my nightstand pistol

    Insight M3X on my Benelli M1S90

    Surefire X300 on my M4

    All get the job done. While the X300 is LED and has 110 lumens the M3X is about $100 less and has 125 lumens it's been on my Benelli through a couple classes and a whole bunch of low-light beaver/muskrat control.
