Surefire X400. It's expensive but you can use it on a handgun or rifle.

TLR-2s is a good unit, cheaper than an X400

Are you really set on getting a combo unit?

I thought it would cut down on the physical bulk of the rifle....but it seems these units are prohibitevly expensive.

Im not dead set on a combo unit...id go for two dedicated units, as long as they arent excessively bulky or expensive.

I may just go with all primary arms units.

Crimson trace modular vertical fore grip. Reduces the amount of crap you have to secure to your rifle.

It is an A+ product.

What exactly are you looking for?

IR laser- Green Laser- Red Laser??

Light size- small Pistol - Larger for rifle

Light power Lumen wise?

Activation together or independent or both?

My instinct says the tlr-2 is what you want.

However I must say it may be well worth it to look into the unimax system where you can mount a light onto the laser body- though I dislike the concept in plastic as it is.

Also take a look a the the duo mount form larue.

Unsure about the CT grip..as ive already got a Tango Down grip in use on the one rifle ive got in mind...and the other I want to use a Knights grip.
Id rather a combo unit thats seperate from a grip really.

1) Green Laser
2) 350+ Lumen at least. My Primary Arms light puts out 380 Lumen and I paid only $75 on it
3) simple button on back to activate on/off is fine. Ive tried the pressure switches, not a fan...

This. From what I have seen, Surefire's warranty will still work regardless.
