I thought both were made in the USA but as long as its not china, I wouldn't have a problem with either company.

I do have both companies lights and batteries. My newest light is Streamlights new Super TAC X. It's a handheld light that is the brightest I've ever seen.

I am curious why their is such a big price difference. Insight Technologies is in the middle price wise.

Evidently, sure fire quit making the cheap g2 nytrolon led light. For the price I'd get a Sreamlight TLR1. The g2 led I have were only $60 and my suggestion was intended for a bargain priced light.

The mount I use is a Viking Tactics mount that runs about $25.

It's called the G2X now. 200 lumens instead of the 170 (I think) of the plain G2. Other than that, it's the same. Well, except price. The X is around $90. But I have done a few google searches in the last couple months and you can still find new in box G2s. Just have to search. And they're cheaper now. Think I saw one for $45.

Do you want it for indoors or outdoor applications? I am not a fan of to much light indoors. Using an LED I find anything over 120-150 lumens to give to much back wash that will impair the operator more than it will serve any addititional means of blinding a suspect. Going outdoors I dont mind anything with as many lumens as you want to go.

I bought a 500 lumen light when it first came out until I used it at night in a house. There was so much light washing off the wall that my partners said it was not allowed indoors anymore.

Im also a fan of the streamlight TLR mounted at the 6 o clock position.

varmintsinc, it will be used for indoor use. I think I'll end up going with a Streamlight TLR Light. I'm going to mount it anywhere from the 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock position, as I hold the weapon (3 o'clock would be mid right side, 9 o'clock would be mid left side). I'll have to figure that out when I get the light.

I've never used a weapon mounted light before so I'll have to see what feels best for me. I'm going to get one for one of my Glocks too.

Thanks for the help, NYH1.
