Default Tactical light

Want to get a good light and mount for my AR that is light weight but don't want to break the bank any suggestions? Don't want junk just good quality at a good price.

Quality at a good price is subjective. What price range are we talking about?

I forgot about the weight...INOVA weighs 4.5oz

125 lumens

MIL-STD-810F Tested

Waterproof to 66 ft.

Edit:

4.5oz is including batteries (123's)

Check out solarforce.com, i have 2 solarforce lights and love them. This one is the L2, its a 2 cr123 LED light and claims it has 350 lumen, it is super bright And keeps a consistant beam at 50+ yards.I also have the L2m which is the shorter 1 cr123 battery version,and still claims 350 lumen. The L2m is mounted on my M4.These lights are only about $30
