    Does anyone have experience with either light? This is for the bedside gun.

    real quick, for a G19

    Insight M3
    or
    Glock TAC3166?


    Both are around $80


    Thanks!

    I really don't like the Glock lights... they just don't cut it IMO. I've had the same M3 for years, and like it just fine. Plus, the M3 is a little more versatile should you ever want to move the light to another gun.

    There are other later and greater models out there, but the M3 is a good basic light.

    The M3 was my gut felling, but I decided that someone might come back with "the Glock light is the cat's behind!".

    Thanks Sixto.

    The M3 is one of the first easily attainable weapon lights out there to make a big impact. and I agree with sixto it's a pretty good basic light. I got a Surefire x200a on ebay for 129.00 which is not much more than you can buy the insight for. and it's LED But I got a great deal. Check ebay before you buy.

    M6 on my HD Glock. Sorry, the M3 is on the AR. Light/laser, can't beat it.

    Take out a second mortgage and get an x300. Those things can ignite mosquitos as they fly by. Bright!

    Thats exactly why I like the M3... I think a lot of the newer lights are far to bright.

    I had an M3 and it was a great light. I recommend it. Now I have a TLR-1. The M3 is easier to remove & install on your gun.
