    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 have an INOVA. Carbon fiber, and you don't need tools to remove it from the mount. About $230 light &.mount:

    It is an LED, three different intensity settings, 4 color flood or strobe...just depends on which one you want.

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

    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

    If i recall its 1.5 or 2hr runtime,and mine have never gotten hot at all. I have 3 xenon surefires, and 2 streamlights and my solarforce is by far the brightest.

    They are built about like the surefires and seem well made. Other than the occasional drop on the ground i havent been rough with them.like most other LED lights that i have messed with,they are good up close but dont reach out much past 8 or 10yds. These you can reach out and put a beam on something

    I just wouldn't mess w/ an untested light or mount. Why when you can get a Surefire and a good mount for under $100.

    Not sure that the fenix is untested there are many extensive reviews of it on YouTube.

    Who's giving the reviews on youtube? Anyone can post a video on youtube so you need to be careful. It's kinda like Wikilinks and the reason professors don't allow you to use it as a source.

    Edit: I did a little (quick) reading and it appears I should remain neutral in regards to the Fenix.
