    Ive been looking at all the lights for my rail. i have the four inch version. ive been looking on eBay. trying to spend less then 100$ more around 80-50$

    i don't know if anyone here has any experience with the Xd and how the lights fit on the rails. I'm willing to hear about what lights other people use on there pistols. ive been looking at surefires x200a for about 50 bucks. also the ETG XP6 here.

    oh also if a laser comes with for a bonus thats cool too
     
  2. Check out the Streamlight TLR-1. Great quality, great price.

    I promise you, you don't need a laser. (but if you are married to the idea, you can get a TLR-2 for about $100 more)

    Don't order from botach. You'll have better luck getting it from opticsplanet.com

    To the C4 led, XTI uses a Q5 Cree, probobaly could pump out over 230lumen with some minor mods.

    XTI is way more functional though because it can actually be used for more anything more than 15yds and light up a target. Due to its weird ass starship reflector, and its smaller

    You can get a surefire x200 for $50 and you're not instantly buying it?

    its the x200a i would rather get the b, the output of the a is not impressive. so id rather keep my $50 and spend it on something i really want.

    You do realize that if it's in any decent condition you could turn your $50 into more, right?
