Is one better than the other for the X3 as a weaponlight?

With the switch the operator uses his thumb for momentary light, and can twist for constant light. Is constant-on practical on a weapon light?

No constant-on with the pressure pad, but I'm guessing its a little easier to operate than the switch.

You can also get the TC-4 tail cap. Momentary on/off and also you can push it on for constant light.

My support hand holds on the mag well, so I've standarized on a tape switch on the side of the mag well. If I ever mount a second light on any of my guns, it will be with a "clicky" switch. Best of both worlds!

Is the pressure switch (when mounted onto a VG) easier to accidentaly activate under stress?

Which is better, the TC2 or the TC4?

I like the TC-4 better. I find the TC-2 diffiuclt to use with the protective recess. The TC-4 is, IMO, easier to use.

Yes & no, in most tactical situations you want to be strobing the target both to disorient the threat and to be changing your position. At other times constant on can be an aid by keeping your target lit letting you free up your hand for other needs.



Thanks, BrightFlashlights. I never thought of that.
