    Just got back from my 24-hr Walmart and got 3 of them (went right after I read this thread). I have a TLR-1 that I've been alternating between the 17, 20, and 29, but now I can have one for each, and my TLR-1 will be on AR duty! Comparing side-by-side, the Nebo light doesn't overpower the TLR-1 by THAT much, but the light does seem to be "whiter" and less of a blob.

    I am going to keep 2 of them sealed in the packaging, and if the one I've opened survives 200-250 rds of full-power 10mm, then I'll crack the other ones open.

    Well I went and picked one up tonight too. Pretty nice little light for $40. Very bright for the money. Hopefully I can get out and shoot a few rounds with it on the 20 and 21 in the next couple days to see how it holds up.

    Pic on the G21:


    This picture was taken at about 15 feet. This thing was the only light on in the house at the time, really lights things up well for what it is.


  3. I guess. You boys must have gorilla hands or are shifting your grip to get to the switch. I wear a size XL glove, and the only way I can get to the switch like it shows in stolenphot0's pic, is if I rotate my grip anti clockwise. After thinking about it more last night, I did try it on my 19 this morning, and its the same thing.

    I guess Im spoiled by the Streamlight/Insight's switch position, where it reaches into the trigger guard and can easily and naturally be activated by either hand and either grip. With a normal thumbs forward grip, the off hand thumb rests right on the momentary side of the switch, which is perfect, and if you think about it, the correct way to work the light. The gun handles as it always does, and there is no shifting of the hands or fiddling to get the light on. Except in an emergency, the trigger finger is used only for the trigger. Using it for the switch, especially under stress, is just asking for trouble.

    But hey, thats all just me. If it works for you, great. You sure cant beat the price.

    (I had) "Seen..." ?

    You might be right, though. It has been edited.

    I was blessed (maybe it was a curse) with straight "A's" in HS & College English, so the spelling and grammar I see everywhere in the 'net would drive me bonkers if I let it. So I try not to be a Grammar Nazi. Think of it as a "Pop Culture" thing rather than just plain ignorance. Comes from too much texting. :)

    I'm certain I would've spent $140 less and gotten one Streamlight TLR-1s that I could swap gun to gun as needs dictated. I don't need lights on 6 different Glocks.

    I went trough several of them, not this particular brand but the same price range, some marked for weapon mount, not for airsoft, purchased also few for friends.
    Sorry to say it - they all went broke after the first few hundred rounds...
    I rather spend couple bucks more for Streamlight or some other brand name, than to buy another-one of those.
    Hope you guys have more luck with yours, I know there is a weapon mounted light coming from Olight, it should be cheaper than most of the products on the market, my thing is: if it]s going to be Chinese, let be from a known manufacturer, again, I could be wrong...

    I had been looking at this light for my nightstand gun. I already have a nebo blue line on my ak and it works great. I will be getting one of these also but i dont think my local wally world carries them. I will be checking tonight!

    They get good reviews. I'm about to find out - eBay 33.25 buy-it-now with free shipping. I bought it a couple of days ago and am about to check tracking. If you have patience some slip through the cracks for less. I've already go plans for one or two more and will pick up batteries on the web (the ONLY place to buy specialty batteries) The CR123A for the Nebo can be had for as low as a buck each if you shop around.

  12. I picked one up a week ago after reading this thread. I'm pleased with how it fits and the light output, and the switch is easy enough for me to turn on. I have not taken it to the range yet but that will happen shortly. I've done dumber things with $40, so to me it was worth trying.

    picked one up today at wally world.

    fits perfect on my g21-gen4, zero issues with scratches (installing or removing). u could install and remove a 1,000 and never scratch the gun. u can spread the mounting rails wide open for installation.

    the light is bright, has a clean looking spot, easy to reach on/off switch and strobe is nice too.

  14. Now that people have had them for a little while, how are they working/holding up to actual use?

    I've got quite a few rounds through my G22 with the light/laser combo version. Still working great.

    Thanks to this thread I had to make a trip to Walmart this afternoon:

    I guess I should give an update...mine only lasted about 150 rounds before it bit the dust so I returned it for a refund. It was cheap for a reason.

    Maybe you got a dud. What happened to it?

    Ditto...and only after about 25-30 rounds!

    My problem...the unit kept coming loose when the weapon fired. With finger strength, I managed to strip the threads on the two knobs/screws (or possibly the threads on the softer aluminum body).

    I was disappointed as I really liked the compact design and the brightnes of it.

    See my post above. I could have have receivied a non-typical lemon but after examining the thumb screw knobs and light housing, it appears there is some very soft metal/aluminum involved.

    I really liked the brightness but mine turned into a $40 pocket light.

    Live and learn....
