I just picked one up at Walmart after seeing this thread this morning. For the money, I figured Id give it a try. After fooling with it a little while now, its obvious why even the cheaper versions of Streamlight and some of the others are worth what they cost.

The one I got has a different mount than the one in kodiakpb's pic, and looks like the one in gunsup's and lyodbraun's. The mount is "fiddly", and doesnt just pop on and off like my M3X.

The switch is shaky at best. Looks like breaking it wont take much. It has no momentary switch, which I think is a deal breaker, and a big negative. I dont have small hands, and the switch cant easily be reached with your trigger finger, or any of your fingers on the hand holding the gun without breaking your grip. Even then, its awkward. Even if you use two hands, it still requires you break your normal "two hand" grip to activate the light. The strobe requires you hit the switch once, lighting the light, then shut it off and hit it again within 4 seconds. More fiddling.

The only thing the light does have going for it is, it is bright.

I was a little torqued when I first saw this thread, as I just got the LED upgrade bezel and module for my M3X on Thursday. It cost me $55. I figured here we go, SOS. Now after getting this one, Im not so torqued about that, just torqued I didnt just put the $40 towards a TL1 as I was planning on getting. Hmmm, now that I think about it, Walmart will take anything back. TL1 is on the way.

I had the same weapon light for my G23 gen4. I was not happy with it. If you get one, just don't take it on and off too much. The sharp aluminum rail edges mess up your Glock rail pretty quick and will eventually cause play in between the light and the Glock which will make the laser useless.

Also, the laser adjustment screws on that light don't work. The adjustment screws are screwed into the plastic laser housing which have no metal threads. I was never able to adjust the laser becasue the plastic threads were messed up out of the box. Wrote an one star review on the website I bought it from and immediately returned it.

I would stay away from it. Spend more money and get a quality light/laser. The Streamlight TLR-2s with strobe is a excellent light/laser and can be bought for about $240 on Amazon, it's well worth the money and won't let you down.

No plastic or sharp edges. It looks as if they redesigned at some point. We'll see

With thumbs forward grip, the light is very easy to manipulate the on/off switch. I just drove my wife's dog crazy with the light, she hates flashlights.

At a stretch, maybe if your a lefty. I shoot thumbs forward, and theres no way if your shooting right handed.

Since I can't take a photo using a two handed grip, you can just imagine that my left hand index finger reaches, just as easily as my right finger when its indexed off the trigger. This is on my Gen4 22, and about equal on my RTF2 23.

Is yours an older version maybe? There does seem to be more than one of them out there, kodiakpb linked one with white lettering all over.

I was using mine on a 17. From the looks of your pic, the light sits farther forward on them, placing the switch out of reach.

Depends on finger length. My index finger pad almost goes past the switch itself. But hey for $40..........cant complain too much. Mine is built like a rock. I just busted my old TRL-1 today doing stress tests on them both.

Dropped a 25Lb weight on them in the front yard. Nebo works. TRL crushed haha. Oh well bulb was burnt out on the TRL-1 anyway....

Read this thread this morning and went to WM. Sales guy said they JUST got them in, took mine out of a shipping box. $40.

As mentioned above, its not perfect, but it looks well built and just got mounted on my wife's G19 nightstand gun. The LED is BRIGHT. I'm not a light/weapon guy for CCW, I prefer a separate light, but for hd, this thing will get the job done nicely. It's WAY brighter than the plastic incandescent MX3 that I have on her gun right now. Its not "gunfight in Fallujah" quality, but useful enough for the price!
