"I bought this about a week ago. Mounted it on my KWA M9 PTP. I originally bought it because I thought it was "quick detach", that doesn't seem to be the case though. Sliding it on is rough which keeps it sturdy on your weapon, and the latch that holds it in place is stiff. I couldn't seem to mount it to a standard 1913 picatinny rail. It does throw a blinding amount of light. The built in switches allow for pressure light on, or permanent light on. The majority is made of polymer except for the front. Not really sure it was worth the $50 I spent.

Pro's : High lumen output, Ambidextrous light switches, firm fit,

Cons : Trouble removing from gun even when oiled. Stiff latch makes for aggravating removal,

"Bought this to go on my KWA USP.45 Full size, and there are a few things that I have to say about it

Ships with no batteries, or any way to tell you what type of batteries it takes (Two(2) CR-123's)

Is a lot wider than it looks in the images, you'll feel goofy with it on a 1911 or something similar, because it's so wide.

Switch to turn on and off is flimsy and made of what looks like ABS Plastic, one of the caps fell off before I even got the light on my gun, and it took a good five minutes to put it back on.

I haven't tested its brightness, but I know that 230 Lumens is plenty.

So far, I don't feel too impressed with the light. I wouldn't recommend it for the price it's at now.

"I bought this to mount on my G&P M4.

Pros: Extremely bright light, will light up a dark hallway or room.
Easy rail mounting system
Only takes two CR123A batteries

Cons: The switch is terrible. The flashlight itself is made of metal, but the cap for the batteries is made of plastic. There's a flimsy switch that you can select for temporary lighting and permanent. This jams and it eventually broke. I only got to use it one time. I didn't even use a full battery charge.
