Best is highly subjective. There are thousands of options on the market, so you have to narrow down what your needs are from the light.

How much money are you looking to spend?

Are you mounting it on a rifle or pistol or just having a normal hand light?

Do you need to have a metal body or is polymer OK?

Do you require additional functionality (low brigtness mode, IR mode, Strobe mode)

Rechargeable or normal batteries?

I'd recommend looking into spending a little more to get a weapon light for a real firearm vs one specific to airsoft. they are going to be much more robust and likely to last much longer then the gun you mount it on. Buy once, Cry once.

I've removed your hyperlink to some off-site prep place.

Yeah...its not one size fits all.


Example I have a tac light that has High, Med, Low Beam, Strobe and the base is magnetic.

The magnetic part is to allow you to stick it to anything metal and have it stay there. In addition this magnetic base is also the quick charge point...way cool.
I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

Don't fear the gun...fear the one that's wielding it!
