Surefire... is there another brand of flashlight?
Seriously, I like the G2 LED for a weapon light. Its light weight, there are lightweight mounts available (check out V-Tac light mounts) the LED will last a virtual lifetime. Buy from a police supply house and stay away from retail gunshops that cater to those with money to spare. I buy from a gunshop in my area that sells there lights at good prices (~$35 for a G2) and sell the batteries at just above cost ($21 for a box of 12). That beats everything on-line since I dont have to pay shipping.

Besides Surefire, Fenix UC35 is my favorite tactical flashlight. It is one of the daily portable flashlights, mainly because it is compact and easy to carry. The battery life is long and the price is moderate, making it ideal for purchasing multiple flashlights as an emergency.

I just use a Fenix Ld20 as a general light (with 3 more to be ordered for my father and brother in laws). It will about match or beat a 2D cell maglite for power, and in a package the size of the 2AA maglite. Best of all it just uses plain jane AA's, so you can get batteries cheap, and any where.

I use a Sure-Fire hand-held on my M4-22

I just used a 1" scope ring to mount and with my hand on the fore-grip, I can press the button with the top of my index finger.

I put an Ozark 500-lumen pistol light on a rail on mine. $30 on Amazon. Bright enough to shoot accurately to 50 yd in the dead of night.
