Ok you have probably heard this a million times. Im looking for a light for my new AR 15. I do not want a 500.00 or 400 or even 200.00 light on it as it will only be used in home defense and CQB. what would you reccomend. I would rather put my money int oa night vision scope gen 1 before a flash light. I saw this scorpion light was nice.

I would MUCH rather have a GOOD light than crappy Gen 1 night vision.

yes but my night vision would be used more by me than a light. and gen 1 is fine for my needs and uses. Gen 2 is attractive and three and 4 yikes take out a 2nd mortage to just pay for it. I just cant see sinking 200.00 into a flash light for my use.

the m3 isnt much good for over 25 to 30 yards. The tac m III is good for a little longer range and available for under $100. with mount. For a cheap HOT set up you might try one of the new streamlight 9 volt lights (around 65.00) put a forbus mount ($25.00) and you have a 200 lumen light. I dont know if streamlight makes a preassure switch as these are so new. I handled one today and was impressed.

If you want a good light for the money get a 6P. You can use it on your weapon or it can be hand held. It is a universal light. You can buy two, one for your CQB weapon and one for your pistol belt. To mount on your weapon just buy any 30mm rings and install. Given that you have a rail system. Hell buy yourself two 6P's and use the extra money that you save for something else.

thanks for all the info. some good choices for sure.

Forget the 6P get the G2's. The G2 is half the cost, weighs less, and its polymere body will protect the bulb better if dropped. Surefire got smart when they switched to Polymere over aluminum.

Who'd a guessd it? How many SURE FIRE lights are in your collection these days new-arguy?[;)] I just got a surfire at the Houston gun show for $30, & it is really good. I plan on mounting it to my M-4 when the upper comes back from GG&G.

the new SWAt issue magazine the M500A sure got a high mark for quality and reliability. Spendy though I bet.
