I want one of these 3 for my AR. I know the vast pool of knowledge on THR so I look to yall for help.

Since I am in the industry. I can get pro purchase programs on select products. So these are the prices I will be able to get.

Surefire X400- $189

Streamlight TLR-2- $193

Veridian X5L- full price :( --- $350 minimum

I have the TLR-2 on an XDm, and I am really pleased with it. Laser holds repeatable zero, and the light is bright enough to be seen from orbit.

I have 2 TLR-2's that i use on my pistols and AR's. The switch is very user friendly and gives several options for placement without having to use a pressure switch. Very bright. I haven't put them through much other than couple hundred rounds for practice.

Wow you get a hell of a discount on the Surefire compared to the Streamlight. Usually I would say go for the Streamlight because it almost always has the better price, but this time I'd say go with the Surefire.

They were pretty much the first on the scene with high end tactical lights, but being the best is a subjective evaluation. Many companies like streamlight and led lensor are making lights on par with Surefire, some nearly as pricy, some a little less. Any of the high-end rigs will serve you well, since the prices are close given your discount, I would choose the one that actuates the best on your rig.

I understand, so I will probably go Surefire on my AR and get that TLR 2 for my Glock later down the road since its a tiny bit smaller. I can only get one per year of each.

Im very surprised that no one recommended the green laser but its a failry new product with a short track record. We'll see about that one.
