Default Olight Lights

I had been wanting a light for an AR15 for some time now. After shopping for the past couple months I decided on the Olight M20S for its combination of battery life and lumen output.

Here are the numbers:

Low: 9 lm (150hrs)
Med: 110lm (12hrs)
Hi/Strobe: 320lm (~3.5hrs)

I was impressed by the packaging of the bat. That first impression was carried through while continuing to open the foam lined hard case and handling the light itself. After a quick run to Walmart I returned with four CR123 batteries. Installation of the batteries was a breeze. Cycling through the four functions was made easy by a small button located towards the rear of the light on the side of the battery cap. The light comes with a belt/pocket clip which was removed before mounting. I played with different mounting locations but couldnt decide on a certain one. I chose on the top rail towards the left and on the right side. We'll see what works best after a range trip. I have two pressure switches on their way that will be capable of cycling through all functions.

All things said I couldnt be happier with these two lights. They are super bright. Even the light bouncing off of the tv was uncomfortable when hitting my eyes. The strobe was intense as well. The performance is up there with any light I ever strapped on any issued weapon and the prices are awesome. In closing the only thing I can say I wasnt 100% with was the stock offset mount. Though it is perfectly functional and sturdy as heck it is a little bulky. But for the price of the mount you cant go wrong.

They would also make a great flashlight.









When youre ready to purchase yours email - whelms6349@aol.com

This is where I got mine. Wendell ( bullit ) is a great guy who went out of his way to make me happy with my purchase. He even overnighted them so I could have them for the weekend

Nice light.

I got the flashlight bug a few months ago when I found Candle Power Forum. I now have like 17 or 18 lights.

I went with an Eagletac T20C2 Mk II on my PS90...





It's a really nice light. I have 4 Eagletacs now, and that brand is my fav (P20C2 Mk II, T20C2 MK II, T100C2 Mk II and an M2XC4).

Here is my collection (minus the one on my PS90 and another Solarforce I got in since that pic)
