which flashlight / strobelight models do you guys use? there are so many out there and being new to this, i don't want to end up with a chinese made failure.

 

i don't want something that's top of the line first class expensive. i just want something that'll effectively get the job done.

 

opinions?

I dont have any but I see many people loving them and the price point isnt like surefire ( what I do own )

thank you. which surefire do you have...would you recommend it?

 

I have the X400 abd the 9000 Not sure the number on the 9000 it is the vertical grip light. I like both I looked at the 9000 direct and was blinded for awhile and this was in the day time,lol never looked at the X400 or the lazer.

 

I would recomend yes but from what others say the streamloghts are just as good. I have no clue to streamlights though.

I would check the X300 ultra that is next for my pistol. I buy surefire 99% due to they are know as the best. over priced yes but the best. I figure I waste so much cash on silly stuff anyways I can afford the few bucks more for surefire,lol

@ OP: Go to candlepowerforum to see more about this than you could ever want to know.

Check the 'recommend me a light for..' threads.

 

For a quick answer: I agree with RocketW. I run the surefire x300 and x300 ultra. You should be able to find a used x300 out there now that the ultra is in circulation.

Yes it is overpriced and you are paying for a name. But: it always works.

 

Streamlight is a good second option and it's much cheaper.

I use a Streamlight TLR1 (Amazon less than $105) that I have been using on my Benelli M4 & Glock. Just ordered the BattleComp Mossie Midnight Mount / MT2400FSB, now I will be able to share the light with my AR.

 

Note # 1 I didn't need the strobe option, therefore the TLR1

 

Note # 2 the allen wrench is only for illustration. :-)

How do you plan to mount it on the SNT and is it rated as a weapon light? Not all handhelds are designed to withstand the recoil of a shotgun.

 

 

this video (borrowed from YOUTUBE) should answer your second question. as for mounting it...i'll have to figure that one out. scope mount on nordic clamp w/ pic/weav rail maybe?

The video was interesting, but I was thinking about asking Streamlight if they recommended using this light mounted on a weapon. Looks like a great light for the price, even if they say no.

I was thinking about this one with a single cell CR123a light: http://www.amazon.com/Single-Shotgun-Magazine-Tubes-Mount/dp/B003V08BAM/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1355448878&sr=8-5&keywords=flashlight+shotgun+mount+L+M but it might work with that one also.

Thanks! I'll look into it.

I'm using a Streamlight TLR-2S with a coiled remote mounted on a Nordic barrel clamp/pic rail. Solid as a rock:

 

i am waiting to get the nordic setup. is your TLR2S the one w/ the green laser as well?

 

also, where did you get that sling setup? i was looking for a clip like that but don't know what it's technically called.

Mine just has the red laser.

 

The sling is just a Blackhawk two point sling and GrovTec 1-1/4" swivels.

I actively stay away from Chinese made products for various reasons but after reading about Jetbeam flashlights in another gun forum, I broke my own rules and ordered one of their series. I have to admit these are quality LED lights at a very affordable price.
