    Has anybody used the Glock (Brand) Tactical Light? It looks like a good deal for around $90.

    It is a good light for the price. However, look into Streamlight TRL-1. It has LED lighting so the bulbs will not burn out on you. It is around the same price as the GLock light

    The Streamlight TRL-1 looks more streamlined also.

    I keep a GTL on my G19 that sits on my night stand and I have yet to find any problems with it. A good light for the money IMO.

    I'll have to stop by Cheaper Than Dirt and take a look. I believe that they carry both - plus some others.

    the best combo is a CT laser or the lasermax with the glock tac light cause you can take the light off and still have the laser using a stanard holster...laser/light combos are no good:beer:

    I have the Glock light/laser combo and use it on my 17. The light is incredibly powerful and the laser (IMO) is useful to help you stay on target should the occassion to use it ever arise (I wouldn't rely on it to be perfectly accurate however).

    The batteries are fairly expensive (around $8/pair) and I was a little surprised that the light is only rated for a little over an hour. The laser is rated for 20+ hours when used without the light.

    All in all I say with or without the laser combo, its a good buy.

    I paid $90 at Magills.com for my Glock light, and it works great. I keep it on my Glock 19 in my gun vault. I'm ready for action. I'm not sure how durable it is on the street. Any LEO's want to put in their .02?

    The Glock lights are junk, and there huge. spend the extra few bucks and get an M3 or M3x. Don't even waste your money on Glock lights.

    go to copsplus.com

    I think you would be happier with the TLR-1.

    if you think any other light is made to the standard as that big turd you have major issues!!!:shocked:

    like i said do the glock light and the lasermax combo that way you can have the light then remove it and still have a laser using a stanard houlster!!!

    glock lights are a piece of crap, the beam is poor quality and comparable to a maglite, not smooth and flawless like those of the surefire ones ive seen, also they are huge, ugly, and just because they are made by glock doesnt make them the best. get a m3x, tlr-1, or if you want to spend a little extra i hear the surefire x200's are some pretty good lights, maybe a bit pricey though

    I looked at several at the Fort Worth gun show today and would have to agree that the Glock light looks overly large. It appears that its'case is the same as the one containing a laser also. I really liked the looks of the Streamlights, but as said, they seemed to be mostly overpriced. The TLR-1 appears the be my favorite choice, so far. Of course, it may not function as well as others, but for around $100 it should be OK. There was one little light for $29.95. I figured that one that cheap couldn't be very good! ?? I also have my sights on a Lasermax as well. (pun intended) ;)

    keep in mind that the glock light without the laser is smaller than the laser/light combo....also if this is this a home or duty use weapon or both....so why does size matter if its for home use???

    and i don't know much about the other light but, do they function in down to 30 feet of fresh or salt water???

    and do they have the glock warrenty?

    and do they come with a ploymer hard shell case and extra bulb?

    oh, and did i say that it is easy as hell to use!!
