Lights

So I sold off my optics for now untill I can figure out what road I wanna travel down. Gonna take this time to get super comfy with Irons... something I should have done along time ago.

Need a light. Budget 200 $..have a g2 with upgraded led but no mount. Should I just buy a mount ? Possibly a mini scout? Fenix? Just lookin for opinions.

Thanks

Nothing wrong with that light and a mount. What do you plan on using it for?

I've had the Elzetta mount on my rifle and love it.

I just upgraded my light from the Surefire 6PX LED (200 lumens) to the Surefire Fury LED (500 lumens) and wow, what a difference!

I wear a Sure Fire Fury on my Duty belt. I am thinking of buying another one and mounting it on my rifle. I am nothing short of amazed at how bright this light is, it is much much brighter than the old 6PLed it replaced on the belt.

I started with a TLR-1S and really liked it. Problem was the switch kept getting hit in my bag. Not a good thing when you pull it out of the trunk and your light is dead. I picked up a Haley edition WML light and absolutely love it. For me it's the perfect light. For $109 the price is right as well.

Either x300 at 12 o clock, no mount needed. Or IWC mount for the g2. IWC makes awesome mounts.

IWC does make nice mounts. I have an SMC for my Surefire/VTAC L4 (basically an M600 Scout w/o the tape switch) that mounts beautifully to an MOE handguard. If you get a less expensive light you can do this on a budget, they have three different ring sizes that will fit the body/diameter of pretty much any CR123 or 18650 light.

I'm sure their other mounts are great too. http://www.impactweaponscomponents.c...ht-mount-1-00/


And I just recently jumped on board the 12 o'clock light mount bandwagon with my new X300U-A on another rifle. Very nice so far.

While the Fury is superior (and I wish I'd had one back a few years ago) the G2 LED is no pushover either.

I used to clear buildings with a standard 6P mounted, then a G2 and G3. I still use the G3 for indoor work and a 600C for exteriors. If I go back fulltime as a cop, I'll be upgrading to a couple Furys after having seen them in action on the street.


The VTAC is good if you don't need QD. I use a LaRue LT606 because I do need QD.

I'll second the Haley WML. For the price it's really hard to beat and it's light weight.

I'll Third it. This is a good light. LA Police Supply has them for $99 right now.

They also have a 500 Lumen version on sale for $169 iirc.

The WML's a good light; here's my review of it.

The Elzetta is a great mount too and would work with your c grip if you offset it from the top rail

Huh? Where have you seen a WML with 500 lumen output?
