So I'm looking to get a reasonably priced light for my g20. What are your thoughts about the glock lights (GTL 10)?? Is it worth its money even though its not LED?

So what LED lights are recommendable? Streamlight? Surefire? I've looked at some lights and the prices make me nauseous.

Check out FIREFIELD light
It's a 200lumen for about $50
I have it on my G17 and shot about 500rnds with it on. Still going strong.

Insight WL1 AA has all the features of high-end weapon lights on a mid-range price of $150. But in the long run, the price would pay itself 'coz it uses AA batteries ($5/pair & much cheaper in bulk) compared to other lights that uses CR123 batteries ($13.98/pair). Check the link for full specs.


**Batteries being compared -- Energizer e2 Lithium @ a local grocery store..

I have a 190 lumen NEBO Protec light on my glock. It is only about $50 as well and will light up a room with no problem! Surefires are nice, but just pricey.

Weapon lights are great to have bu difficult to choose. Depending on what holster system you're thinking of using. If you like Safailand then you need to use a Surefire or Streamlight. Blackhawk Serpa holsters require the use of Blakhawk's Night-Ops Xiphos light. I'd defiantly go with a LED light for brightness and longevity. I've used all 3 of these lights and own the Xiphos and Streamlight. I like the way these mount rather than the screw/threaded mount the Surefire uses, but you certainly can't beat the price of the Surefire. All my weapons lights use the CR123 batteries, that way I only have to carry 1 size for replacements. But the shelf life of the CR's is the table tipping reason. You really can't go wrong with any light as long as its bright and cuts through the darkness. However, please remember a weapons mounted light does not replace a handheld light, 1 is none and 2 is 1!!!

I have the Streamlight TRL2s. It rocks. Fits snug, easy to remove/install, very bright, strobe is worthy of a good seizure. Laser is well, a laser. (And when using said laser, if you really want to know how unstable your shooting hand is, watch that laser dance on a target at 25 yards.) You can use either the light, the laser, or both at the same time.

Safariland makes a good duty holster, 6280 I think

Safariland also makes a kydex for it, forgot the model

I just found out the other day that bladetech also makes a holster for glocks with the tlr, I've not seen it yet, but I love the bladetech I have for my HK USP

The Glock light is ok. However, Glock is better at making handguns than tac-lights. So go ahead and save your cash for a Surefire or Streamlight, not to mention they are LED.

Get the Streamlight TLR-3. Inexpensive bright LED. No strobe, no laser, just a bright light. Everything you need, nothing you don't, from a brand you can trust. It fits Glock perfectly and is easy to operate. I love mine. Battery life is excellent because it's an LED.
