    does anyone make a good solid super bright LED flashlight that takes AA batteries instead of CR123As and can be weapon mounted?

    LOL! :lolz:
    I had a Mini mag as my tac light for a while with this stuff on it. The tail cap I had was different tho, and it didn't take long to break. The Nite Ize might be better. But with the LED upgrade the mini mag was plenty bright.

    I actually have taped a flashlight to my lever gun before stalking hogs in the night. Works very well. With the IQ switch at the back its very easy to push.

    I have taped a mini light to the barrel of a 30-30 I had. I put a rolled up sock in between the light and the barrel for shock resistance. I didn't get the chance to test the shock resistance but the set up pointed well and with the tail switch it was indeed very easy to operate.

    I just bought a Coleman Max at wall mart that is 115 lumens and a tail switch it has a range of 62 meters (I think) for $25 it is bright! The tail switch is not as tactical as I would like but it works. It has a 5 hour run time and is right at 1'' wide IIRC and about 5" or 6" long. I'm going to see how it holds up and if it's good then there is a smaller one there that takes smaller batteries (kinda like the cr123's) that I want. Just a thought. I'm carrying that light right now and it's just big enough to be comfy in the hand and small enough to be comfy in my back pocket.
