Mounted torches any recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Hopefully this is in the right place. Looking for recommendations on a stubby but bright torch with a pressure pad. Wanting a smaller one to keep the end of the gun tidy.

Links all welcome. 

Cheers

This is what I use, works well on my pistol or my M4. Small and compact, has a spring mounted lense and a decent length pressure pad.

This was this first one I saw when I was looking at them this morning. 

Rechargeable batteries too as them A123 or whatever they are, are bloody expensive

The one above is pretty good, the batteries last forever. I have one and find it too big for pistols but looks good on a rifle.  Also its one of the very few ones Ive found that has a simple "on/off" feature, Im so SO very sick of all the TACTICOOL flashlights  with 17 million different modes you have to cycle through. I dont want on/low/mid/high/flash/strobe/SOS/signal/disco/off. I just want on and off.

I got a spare set of batteries in case the rechargeable ran out, they were like £4 for a pair on Amazon.

It also has a red dot. You can set it up to activate any combo for example:

Light only

Red dot only 

Both

 

Never used the dot on mine other than for photos as the Mall banned red dots.

Just received mine. It is bigger then I thought it would be, doubt it will fit on my pistol so will just use on my rifles. 

 

Quick question. When charging the batteries, when do you know it is charged? Will the lights be green then go out? 

 

Just managed to line up the laser which was way out. torch seems bloody bright even in daylight. Gave my manager a headache. 

 

Cheers!

Honestly don't remember mate I've only had to charge them once!? 🤣

 

It fits my pistol, a Co2 powered KWC Glock17 but the kick it gives gradually vibrates it off but it sat fine on the AEG.

 

Oh and the laser will need realigning once in a while due to any rough and tumble foreplay.

I am a bit disappointed with its rail mountability. Fits on my Aug with some elbow grease, but managed to damage my Strike Warriors rail because the Torch rail is just way too tight. No way can I fit it on. 

 

It'll just need to stay on the Aug for now until I can file away at the torch rail mount a bit.

Any chance of a picture of it mounted on a rifle. And if it's not too much to ask, any chance you can measure the front to the back of the torch?

For my pistol and new Evo I use the OLight PL1 II Valkyrie.

Pretty solid little torch after numerous drops, takes CR123A batteries too.

Sometimes you just gotta flip a bitch.

 

It's geared for CQB and I do not find it comfortable. Running around with my left arm bent to accommodate the grip/barrel length just left me with a sore arm at the end of the day.

 

I dismantled it to sort out the inner barrel and selector switch and am too lazy to put it back together. 

 

Plus the JG080 is on its way!

If I had the cash it consider it. I have Croatia and Budapest to go to over the next 3 month's
