    I've searched but I can't find a decent light to go on a G29. . .

    What I'm looking for is something relatively short fore/aft where the lens is close to square with the muzzle (eg., G34 w/ a Surefire X200). I know I don't have much to work with in the way of space considering it's a "sub compact."

    There's not much space to work with when you factor in the switch, battery and lens...I don't need/desire a lot of lumens.

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    The TLR-3 is pretty short but it's still going to stick out beyond the muzzle. I don't know of anything shorter.

    Thank you.

    I've been a Surefire fan but will have to look into the Streamlight. There is also a company called Insight that I've seen. I'm just looking for something that fits and works. I don't need the lumens. The Surefire's are getting more lumens and are growing larger in size.

    Once again, thanks.

    Take a look at the Viridian C5L Laser/Light. It's only 1.9 inches long and combines a green laser and 100 lumen tac light.

    GT member GLOCKTOMETRY has a rather famous thread showing how he modified the G26 subcompact to add an accessory rail and install the C5L. It should be no problem for the G29. See pics here: Custom Rails on my G26 for Weapon Light

    Or, without the laser, the CTL is the same size, but cheaper. I agree with GRT45 that the C5L is the better deal.

    I have a TLR-3 on my G30 and it functions fine. I just popped it off of the G30 and put it on my G29 to see what it looks like. It sticks out 3/4" from the gun.
