    Excellent product in any situation, provides a bright light and is quick to attach to rail on glock.

    I have two of these...one on my G35 all the time, the other in my tac vest for a backup. Very handy when checking interiors on open door alarms. Only problem's I have noted is that sometimes when shooting, the recoil can affect the switch mechanism negatively. This can usually be fixed by removing the back cover plate and reinstalling it. Other than that, an excellent product

    I think it deserves a 5 because the light lasts linger and the light is definately stronger.

    This light is mounted on my Taurus PT92 with a tactical holster, which is my regular duty weapon. I love it. It is super bright and mounts and dismounts easily. I also mount it on my Springfield XD-9, which I also carry on duty. Great light.

    I am a K-9 officer and I have this light mounted on my Glock 23. It is a great tool when I am on patrol with the dog lead in one hand and my weapon in the other. Keeps me from fumbling for a flashlight when I am clearing a house or in a tactical situation.

    I have one of these lights and have used it for about a year. It's a good light for the money, but there are better lights on the market, if your willing to spend more money. During heavy firing carbon seems to build up under the lense. If you put a small amount of oil on the face of the light it will capture most of the powder and can be wiped of easily.

    I got this after losing my flashlight in a foot pursuit with a felony suspect. It is always mounted on my gun and puts out plenty of light. It makes clearing a building a lot easier because you don't have to do a balancing act with your gun and flashlight.

    exellant product. there's nothing better than a gun mounted light. shoot with both hands in low light or have a light gun and k9 all at once something k9 officers have been having to choose between for years. the m3 is relatively inexpensive too you can get them for less than $100, i've had mine for about 4 years and never changed a light bulb and only changed batteries once or twice. it's great.

    Had this light for about 5 years. No problems. The momentary-off-on swithcing is easily accomplished while maintaining target intimidation. Once you've had a mounted light like this, you'll wonder why you did not get it earlier. The only problem is finding holsters to accomidate a weapon with a mounted light, but light holders are available, too.

    This is standard issue for our whole department. Love the option of momentary or steady-on operation. I've had the batteries go down while clearing a building and I almost forget how to use my streamlight flashilight in conjunction with my handgun. Great product.

    put about 3000 rounds downrange with the light installed. If you use locktite, and install properly, we had no problems with 20 lights. It does a great job of illuminating with 90LMs although more is always better. There is no real increase time with my draw and easy to use.

    This would be a good light, if it would stay attached to my Glock 23 while firing. I can't tell you how many of these I see flying around the range on qual days, most particularly from the Glock 23. I have sent this light back to Insight 3 times, and it continues to be a problem. They told me they would test-shoot my light on one of their Glock 23's, but they never did and just sent me a new light instead. No one seems to have an answer, and Glock told me to buy a Glock light. It takes some time for this problem to develop. Brand new they stay on pretty well, but after a while they fly off after 2-3 rounds. I think the spring gets worn that holds the light onto the rails. Do yourself a favor and buy a light that you can screw down to stay on if you have a Glock 23. I have seen this problem with the G22 as well, but it seems most common to the G23. If anyone has any advice on this problem I would love to hear it.

    I can't remember how long I've had this but know I took it on my first deployment to Iraq in 2004 and again in 2008. Katrina in 2005 and numerous training events. When I was at work I carried it on my pistol every day. Its been in rain, sandstorms, freezing temperatures and 140 degree days. The last deployment I somehow broke a small piece off the front lense cover, doesn't effect it at all, more cosmetic damage than anything.
