WML Review: LAPG SlideRail XWL

I have reviewed a number of WMLs on this site. I recently decided to check out a weapon-mounted light from LA Police Gear, the LAPG SideRail XWL. To be honest I didn’t have terribly high expectations, but it’s nice to be pleasantly surprised every now and then. Bottom line up front: this is a solid, durable light at a very budget-friendly price. Let’s get into it!

EDC Flashlight Review: Olight I3T

I’m generally not the biggest fan of AAA-powered lights. After reviewing the Streamlight Microstream I figured maybe it was time to give the AAA Olight I3T another look. I have a little bit of history with this light. I actually own two of them because this was one of the first lights with a pocket clip that I carried on a daily basis (the second was purchased as a backup).

Malkoff Conversion LED for Legacy Surefires

Like many guys of my age and background I have some old, legacy Surefire flashlights lying around. These lights where the cat’s pajamas back in the day. I recently pulled out my old Surefire 6P “Defender” and was blown away…by how weak the light was. Good news, though: you can breathe new life into those old flashlights with the Malkoff Conversion LED.

Streamlight TLR RM-2 Long Gun Light

As I wrote recently, I am a big fan of the Streamlight TLR-1 weapon-mounted light. Many of Streamlight’s successive WLMs have held little appeal for me, trending generally smallerĀ  and intended for EDC handguns. That’s not universally true, but there hasn’t been much in Streamlight’s line that has really excited me until recently. Earlier this year Streamlight introduced a crop of new lights including TLR RM2.

The Venerable Streamlight TLR-1

If you go looking for a holster to accommodate a weapon-mounted light, there are two lights you will see repeated over and over again: the Surefire X300 and the Streamlight TLR-1. I own several Streamlight TLR-1s and have used them across many different applications. If you’re looking for a do-it-all light I don’t think you could go wrong with this one.
