    So I just finished an AR pistol in 556 , 12.5" barrel and I'm looking at lights for it. I currently have a Streetlight HLX rail mount on my HD Ar. It is mounted with an Arisaka scout mount and has a Cloud defensive LCS tape switch holder. Anyways I have been looking at getting another setup just the same as that bc I like it. 1000 lumens, nice hot spot and good throw for about $200 for the whole shooting match. But this post is to ask if theres something out there I'm missing? I have looked at the Arisaka 300 series lights but I cant find a review on them. Thanks in advance!

    Could always just go with a Streamlight TLR series. Seen lots of people swear by them.

    I've tried the whole pistol light on a rifle thing and didn't care for it.

    I think I’ve got that cloud defense mount your talking about if it’s for the pressure pad and I think it’s hard to beat. Running it with a surefire m300. I also need to pick up another light and have been looking hard at the Arisaka lights. I want to say garand thumb had a positive review on them on YouTube but not 100%.

    Yeah I love the CD LCS. It manages the wires and makes the switch rigid.

    I have 2 of the TLR-2 HL G lights and love them. Easy to mount on a rail, easy to operate and LOVE the green Laser...

    I've become a fan of the Inforce lights and the WML in FDE might be my next light for my AR pistol.

    I like the Arisaka line but from a pricepoint, I think the Inforce works better for me.

    I like the Inforce WML.

    I have another with a TLR-7 on it, which is more compact that the TLR-1 and stays below the sight line on an AR.

    I have a x300 mounted at the 12:00 position. Works very well IMO.

    Well Cloud Defensive is doing 20% off right now so I got another Streamlight HLX rail mount with their Light Control System tape switch mount for $135 shipped which is a great deal!
