    Looking for some recommendations for a tactical flashlight.
    - Must be able to mount using a standard flashlight mount (or come with its own if custom) For a Rifle
    - Has pressure or can utilize pressure switch.
    - Preferably effectively bright. As in it puts out a lot of light. Lumens are simply the amount of light emitted, not the overall light's effective brightness
    - Preferably under $75. $100 max
    - I'd like to have a strobe feature
    - Preferably is located state-side

    Side note: If you have one you're willing to sell PM me. Please don't post it here

    I bought a bike light that has a rubber strap to strap on your handlebars. It's is SUPER bright, has a strobe feature, and I don't need rails to use it, I can put it anywhere I want, and it was pretty cheap. I just strap it to my barrel, and turn it to the front :)

    Decent idea, but I'd like something legit and not flimsy. On top of that I'm looking for something with a pressure switch

    I bought a Surefire M961 for $60, it's very bright, came with a pressure pad, and rails, and built sturdily, however there's no strobe function. I thInk I got it from T-Tiger, but he deleted his classified here. I think I saw him on ASF though.

    Check out Ultrafire. I use one andd while it lacks a strobe feature, its brighter than most Surefires I've used. Eats batteries like I eat tacos though.

    agree, i own a ultrafire C8 with the new CREE U2 LED, and its great. 5 modes, strobe included, highest setting 1.2k lumens. VERY bright. Bought a mount for it, 12$ and a pressure switch, 5$, the light itself was 18$. Boom, tact weapon light.

    Another model is the 501B, same performance, looks a bit better, and has lower profile/less bulky, but it has a foggy trow as apposed to the sharp and concentrated trow in the C8. So i recommend the C8.
