Can you give me your opinions on the best brand and model for a light for my XD45?
I have an Insight M3X that I throw on my P99 occasionally. It is bright, fits well, and i've beaten the crap out of it and it keeps on working. I believe it will fit the XD45 as well.
The best product I've found is the Sig STL-900L. It's a light/laser combo, so it's more expensive than just a light (you can find it for less than the price on the website). It fits as securely on my XD's as my P226. I had been using an Insight SSL-1 on both my XD40 & XD45, which were relatively inexpensive ($60) but the fit on the rail was shaky at best. I did just buy an Insight X2 (laser/light) for my XD9 Subcompact which I'm very impressed with. It works as advertized and snaps on securely in a couple of seconds. It's sized for a sub but will probably fit on a medium-to-large framed pistol if you prefer a smaller accessory. Insight does make larger light/laser products for larger pistols as well.
I like the Streamlight TLR-2, on sale right now at Midway USA
Midway USA - Streamlight TLR-2 Light
Up to 135 Lumens, plus laser if you need it.
TLR-1 Streamlight. Simple to use, and good quality.
