Default fore-grip tac-light advice

hello, need a little advice. I'm wanting to put on a UTG quad-rail, fore-grip and some kind of tac-light. I want to mount the light in front of the fore-grip. Is there a light that has a trigger to engage instead of a button. any advice will be greatly considered. I'm not crazy about the cheap, squeeze the rubber and light maybe comes on type either.

i'm working with an m-4, bushmaster

thank you,

Check out crimsom trace, they make a foregrip that has a light n laser built into it and the controls are right on the side of the grip.

Some friendly advise, UTG is not all that great of a choice. You might want to think about the trigger operated light as well. My first thought was that it might be something that could cause a problem if under stress (confuse one trigger for the other).

Why do you not like the push button or the tape switch?
