    Can you guys help me pick a tacticool light for my AR? I can't seem to find a pressure switch for my tangodown foregrip. I just want a good bang for the buck light. Sorry if this has been beat to death. I have no idea where to start.

    Scroll the hell down!

    Beaten to death doesn't even begin to describe.

    But, since I'm here -- normally, the grip's reversed and a tapeswitch is attached.

    crap I didn't see that thread earlier. I'm not quite sure what you mean by reversing the grip and adding the tape switch

    i.e. that Surefire has a tailcap w/ a tapeswitch.

    On the other side of the pictured Tango Down foregrip, there's a little slot where a tapeswitch is inserted. Sorry, it just wasn't pictured at the time.

    So let me make sure I understand correctly. You simply take out the peice and tape the pressure switch in that little cavity? I was hoping there was a replacement peice that slid in there for a perfect fit and had a built in pressure switch. Sorry for being so dumb

    My fit is pretty damned good. A few wraps of electical tape over the tape switch snugs it up and doesn't look bad at all.
