My tabletop review of the AIM Sports 150 Lumen Tactical Flashlight. I found this light on Amazon, though I suspect you may find it at some other retailers.
The flashlight is well made, with an all aluminum body. When installed on the rail, the spring-loaded lock holds the light firmly in place. The light fits very well on my S&W M&P 9c as well as my full sized S&W SD40VE. The light is bright – more than adequate for just about any home-defense scenario. The projected beam provides a small center hot spot surrounded by a fairly wide outer beam – the result is a compact, lightweight light that can easily light up a pitch-black room at over 30′. I’ve tested this on the longest possible shot in my home, which is down a hallway into a great room – it’s over 40′, and this light easily reaches the far side.
The only drawback is that I can’t see the sights on my my pistol when using this – I definitely need to add some night sights so the markings will be more obvious either in darkness or when the light is turned on.
5 stars for this light. At about $30 online, it is quite a bargain.
Here’s a link to the light on the manufacturer’s website: http://aimsportsinc.com/products/799-…
Model number is: FQ150C
Update 7/22/14: Still on the original battery supplied with the light when I got it in May 2013. Your mileage may vary, but I’ve been very pleased.
