Hey guys, i know that "best" is a pretty loaded adjective... what I mean is best for me. I am thinking about putting a light rail on my 1911, and then using a weapon light on the gun. So, If I dont want to spend more than 150 bucks, what is the best one out there? I want it to be water proof, and reliable as well as have great light output. Battery life is a plus also. It needs to be able to fit in a holster still... So, any suggestions? Thanks for the help!

I would suggest a Streamlight TLR1 for a 1911.

+1


TLR-1 is about perfect... and less than $100 just about anywhere.

If your not in a position to snap a light onto a rail, I would recommend a Surefire G2Z.

Brownells and Opticsplanet are good places to shop and have AWESOME customer service. Go with the Streamlight TLR1. You can't go wrong with a "Lifetime No-Excuse" Warranty. And if you want a laser, get a pair of Crimson Trace lasergirps.

X2 ****** sucks! I ordered a set of magpul mbus from them, a month later they show up. After calling several times and always put directly on hold and finally hanging up. When i finally talked to someone, they sent more so i got 2 sets for the price of one.

+1 on TLR1. Haven't used a ton of weapon lights but my TLR1 does everything I need it to do.
