Just grabbed 2. ALMOST grabbed the light/laser combo, but didn't want to spend $80 each. 2 for 80 isn't bad at all. It is pretty darn bright and doesn't have all the lettering on it.

Stopped by my local Pawn & Tobacco shop and they had a bunch for $34.99...and what looked like a smaller laser (same company) for $39.

I was looking for unicorns though, so came out empty handed.

Nice find. What is the weight of the light? A single CR123 light should be lighter than the Streamlight.

The difference between 190 and 160 lumens is not very perceivable to most eyes. I would guess there is a different in the beam color that accentuates the difference in brightness. My current EDC Fenix PD22 light has four levels, with the two highest being 95 lumens and 190 lumens. There is a brightness difference, but not a monumental difference when switching between them.

3.2 oz according to my shipping scale.

I found mine on a different shelf, up above where the other lights were. I almost gave up.

Picked one up last week. Its a lot of light for the money. Kind of surprised Wally world sells these. Definitely satisfied with the overall quality.

Had one of these, it was so tight that it tore up my Glock, scratched up the rail.

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.
