I'm just learning about lights so please bear with me and be gental.
I'm trying to replace my rifle light with something lighter and preferably brighter. My ACR is already on the heavy side and my big ass light just makes it worse. The light I have is a Hellfighter X8 Turbo flashlight, its rated at 380 Lumens and honestly it’s just as bright, maybe even less bright then a friends 230 Lumen Elzetta light. The one thing I do really like about it is its pressure pad actually has little clicky buttons inside instead of being one crappy long button.
Anyways I’ve been looking at several lights. For comparison, the X8 weighs 6.5oz and is like I said 380 lumens. So any suggestions for something lighter and either equal to or brighter? And does anyone have any experience with either of the lights listed here. The weight is the priority but it still has to be at least as bright and be able to withstand me treating it like I hate it. Also I'll be using this for medium range shooting (25m-300m), So I need to be able to illuminate multiple targets out pretty far. Oh and like I mentioned it had to be able to use a remote ressure switch that doesnt suck.
The one that looks most promising is the EagleTac T20C2 MK II XM-L, its rated at 770 lumens/626 ANSI Lumens it weighs 4.3oz. But I've never heard of this brand.
Has anyone heard about or experienced this brand/lights quality and durability?
Someone mentioned the Inforce light, the 6v only weighs 3.3oz but its only 200 lumens so I'd like it to be brighter. Is there a way to upgrade the light with some sort of drop in?
The Elzetta lights look great, really great, but I'd light something brighter and lighter since they range from 5.3oz for the 2 cell to 6.5oz for the 3 cell but more importantly they also come at twice the price ($230).
Thanks in advance
ETA: Also I was told the Surefire Fury wouldnt hold up to being mounted to a rifle, how accurate is this? would it work or could I find something better?
