I already own the Streamlight, but I'm wondering if an upgrade to the more expensive Surefire is worth it. The Surefire has an average cost of $250 online. I'm wondering if there is a significant improvement in the quality of craftsmanship that warrants the tremendously extra cost.
The TLR-1s has a strobe function and is water resistant (160 lumen output).
The X300 is water proof and has no strobe function (170 lumen output).
Does anyone here own the X300 and if so, how would you rate its overall performance and build quality?
Also, I was told the rail mounting system of the X300 is plastic. Is this true?
