Who has those "tactical rubber bands" to secure the pressure switch for my M3s to my forgrip? It's supposed to be made of innertube type material.

Try your local bike store. Purchase some tire inner tubes and cut to needed size.

It's not a sleeve, they are just as cheep but fit without screwing arounf with it, and better than velcro.

Yojimbo's got it. I took an old tube off my bike, and cut it into 'bands'. They fit perfectly over a KAC grip with room for a surefire pressure pad.

Is this the same a "Ballistic Tape" and "Ballistic Hammers"? I've heard of primers being held in with Ballistic tape!

Look over in the Equipment Exchange under Black Rifle Armory and Doorkicker6. They have them for $6 shipped I think. They are a little slow at answering emails, but they are a good bunch to do business with.

If you absolutely HAVE to be 'tactical', then by all means pay $6 plus shipping for a 'tactical rubber band.' BUT, if you don't need the word 'tactical' beside the product description, I would recommend the bike inner tube method. For $6 you can get a couple inner tubes, cut them up into 50+ rubber bands, and sell the ones you don't use to the Airsoft crowd for $6 each, just make sure to advertise them as 'tactical rubber bands.' [:D] Seriously, I just took an old standard sized inner tube off my mountain bike, cut off a couple strips and the fit was PERFECT. Doesn't slide off, will not break, isn't too tight (thus accidentally activating the light).... Just some friendly 'tactical' advise. [;)]

yipper, i agree with above posts..i too, was lookin for the rubberbands,,and then i got into the inner tube trick for my magazines..and then i thought about my surefire...i got tired of the velcro holding stuff on and the sticky stuff coming off..so i jus cut sum narrow pieces of inner tube and it works like a charm..$3.19 @ KMART..too many ppl using "tactical" to loosly IMO..

You guys were right. I thought I would end up buying a dozen tubes in order to get the right size, but the first one I got fit perfect. I really didn't give a shit what was called, I just didn't want to by $20 worth of tubes and end up buying the "tactical bands" in the end. It does fit securely and doesn't activate the light.......I'm happy. I did notice that the tube is too big for my Knights grip, but I am now using the GG&Gs, as they hold 2 AA batteries. The Knights only holds 2 Lithiums. I haven't tried it on my Dieter grip yet.
