Weapon light gurus, I need you to make a recommendation on a light. Here is my criteria:

(1) Installing this on my M4. I have a Daniel Defense offset light mount coming.
(2) I prefer rear push button activation as I have an offset mount coming.
(3) I like the Surefire M3, but the price is somewhat disconcerting ($252).
(4) 125 lumens or better.
(5) 6V, lithium ion battery setup.

There seems to be a flood of brands out there from Streamlight, Surefire, Pentagon, etc.

Please make a recommendation, I guess best "bang for my buck".

Surefire 900 series Classic weapon light or even more economically, a standard SF 9P with a Z32 Shock Isolated bezel and Z41 clicky tailcap. Both Will fit your offset mount. Cheaper and not as cool looking as Surefire's latest millenium Weapon lights but will work just as well. Bear in mind, both are 9V setups but the P90 bulb will give you 125 lumens for a runtime of 1 hour.

BTW Calvin @ Brightflashlights is the Man.

Edited to add pic with SF 900 series Classic weapon light:

Pentagon X3HA. 130 lumens for 60 minutes with 9v. Talk to kblagg, he got me the best deal on the net for a Pentagon. I'll never buy another Surefire light again.

**ETA** I have the Daniel Defense offset light mount also and it works great with the Pentagon light.
