Tactical Flashlight


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone here has a flashlight for your M4. If so which one are you useing. I am going to buy a Eotec sight for it today and was thinking about getting a flashlight. I would really like something from surefire but I don't see a light for the m4 on their website

You need a rail first ...


The best cheap route for a quality flashlight is a surefire g2 nitrolon, the z32 antishock bezel, a 30mm scope mount, and the 120 lumen head.










a click on tailcap if you want it ...




and I'd use an ARMS type mount.




It's the best setup for ~100 depending on what you get ... You can get a 5 dollar mount, skip the click on tailcap, and have a full 120 lumen shock"proof" system for ~80, and a 65 lumen setup for ~60.


... considering you have a rail to mount it to, which you don't, unless you have the sidearmor.


But seeing how surefire does not make a foreend for the m4 yet, it's either duct tape, a sidearmor rail, or a crappy barrel clamp system.

I emailed Surefire regarding a replacement forend style weaponlight for the M4, and they replied that they did not make one for the M4, and had no plans to. Kinda sucks, 'cause I NEED a light for this thing, and I do like their integrated forend weaponlights.

If you are looking to keep the weight down go with the INSIGHT M3X LONG GUN w/ RAIL GRABBER weapon light. I have one on my BENELLI M4 and freakin love it. Here is a link for you. When purchasing the LONG GUN w RAIL GRABBER version a pressure pad is included. REMEMBER get the RAIL GRABBER mounting system NOT the SLIDE LOCK MOUNT.This light wont break the bank either. Good luck

I'm guessing that the clamshell construction of the M4 fore-end, necessitated by the pistons, is a challenge to adapting a traditional shotgun-style integrated weaponlight unit to the M4.
