I did a relatively quick look through of the lights and lasers forum, and didn't notice anything about the Vltor E series mounts.

Obviously, the first question is, do they hold the light well? I've read that sometimes you really have to crank down on the mount to get it told hold.

Second, how do most of the E series handle recoil? I've been looking at the Surefire X200A for a Glock, but then got to thinking about how I don't always need a $250 light on my pistol. I have a Surefire E1e sitting here that I rarely use, and then I remembered the Vltor mount. If I couple the E1e with the E series mount, I have a decent, low cost light for use if/when I need it.

Anyone have any input? Basically, will a Vltor E series mount and a Surefire E1e be okay for intermittant/light duty use on a Glock 21?

What about the light itself? I know that Surefire makes the Z32 bezel for use on the G and P series to handle the recoil. How bad is it on the E series light?

So then, that would mean that the Vltor E series mounts are pretty much pointless wastes of money, unless you like replacing bulbs in your Surefires. Good to know.

There have been no problems with the numerous E-series and L4 lights we have mounted on 5.56 mm carbines. Likewise, no unusual problems or bulb breakage has been noted with simple stock G2 lights mounted on 5.56 mm carbines.
