I am putting together a patrol rifle with a rail system. I have two carbines set up with the M500B, but am looking to have this one setup with a 225 lamp module. I'm thinking about getting either the M900A or a M962 with a vertical foregrip.

Anyone have any experience with both? Any reason to lean towards one over the other? The M900 seems to be pretty nice, as it is a complete unit and I wouldn't have to worry about wires. It looks to be about a $100-150 price difference, which isn't that big of a deal.

Any input would be appreciated.

The only real issue with the M900A comes when you need the 6 o'clock clear for a bipod or M203.
I guess you could gangsta it at 9'oclock.......

You can put the KL6 LED bezel on the M900...
But yes, the modular nature of the MU Series WeaponLights means that you can change switches, lamp modules and mounts.

I run both of these lights regularly on different guns. I have been very pleased with both units and I must admit the addition of the LaRue offset design base is a worthy component.

Still I find myself going with the 900 more often than not due to the features Brightflashlights mentioned. The only downsides I see to the 900 is yes it is heavier than the 962, It is possible but not that likely to break in a fall, and if the navigation lights get wet enough they will activate and stay on until they dry out...But that's what the bikini covers are for.

If you ever had the desire to do so you can purchase the 12 volt extension for the 962 and with proper bezel and bulb switch back and forth between 9 volt and 12 volt. So that's an interesting option.

In the end the 900 goes out the door with me far more often than not.
