Sure Fire Sidearm lights
I was given an M-6 Streamlight as a gift for my flashlight. Well, even with good intentions, the Streamlight was bought off of Ebay as a new item. So I slapped it on my Glock 19 and tried to sight it in, however the the elevation screw it stripped. Without going into a long story of my conversations with Ebay . . . the bottom line is I'm stuck with this light.
So I send the light with my business card and ask Streamlight how much it will be to repair the light.
Two weeks later, I get a voicemail saying that the light is out of warranty, so Streamlight will not fix the light/laser. They tell me the light will be shipped back and there is some other company that will fix the laser adjustment for like $40.00 or whatever. It took 3 weeks for those guys at Streamlight to send my M6 back.
Needless to say, I'm not impressed with Streamlight and their customer support after the warranty expires, and now I need a light for a Sig 229.
I want a light/laser for the Sig 229 and want to know who has experience with the Surefire mounted lights and what models etc. will fit the Sig 229 with rail?

I just picked up the Streamlight TLR-1 for mine. It's an LED w/ aluminum body. Haven't used it in the field yet, but so far I'm very happy with it.
I got it for about $100 from an police distibutor out of Austin.I drank what?! - Socrates

I carry a Surefire X200A attached to my Wilson CQB at my part time job and recommend it highly. It is bright enough, small and doesn't use too much battery power. Plus it's a surefire, they definitely do stand behind their products and take good care of LEO's."Chance favors the prepared mind"

Another vote for Surefire X200A......Surefire will back you up if ever any problems, it's worth the extra $$$.
