    For only 100 buck, is it worth it, or spend the extra money?

    The Glock is just too bulky and ugly. I am personally going with the SureFire. It is more steamlined. Not to mention it is made by a company that specializes in this and not an afterthought(?).

    Glock lights are tough, big and ugly. Surefire! Its easyer to find duty holsters.

    I'm going GLOCK. If it breaks, send it back. Plus, I can't carry it on duty, so it'll be for the house.

    If weight is a factor the Glock is lighter.

    Get a streamlight M3, I got it on ebay for just $93.00. It definitely looks better than the GLock ones.

    I can give you the name of the seller if you want. :)

    Spend the extra $20, The M-3 is also easier to flick on and off.

    Glock never could make anything small. ;g

    Does anyone know if they make any kind of light attachment for the 27?
    I know it has no rails but is there anything out there?

    Get the M3. You're not going to be able to find any holsters for the Glock light, at least not for a while.

    Unless you are on a Swat Team or poaching deer at night, most folks are better off with a separate small light like the Surefire G2.

    1. Cheaper
    2. No problems with holsters
    3. No chance of effecting the functioning of the gun
    4. AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO POINT THE GUN AT EVERYONE YOU WISH TO ILLUMINATE!

    Yes, there are places where a pistol-mounted light is useful. But most of us are better off with a separate light.

    M3 from www.farmpolicesupply.com for $87.95


    I have used an M3 for the last year and love it. My agency just bought us all the M6. Now I have to get all new holsters. :(

    Those of you saying the GLOCK light is bulkier need to qualifythat it is taller, but is thinner. The batteries are placed above and below, rather than side by side. The GLOCK light adds nothing to the width of the firearm, if that is important (such as IWB carry, or a shallow bedside drawer or safe).

    I still prefer the M3, but wanted to make the record clear.
