    With that statement in mind, I put a Viridian X5L on my P226 a few years ago - great little light with a green laser to boot. Believe they can be found for 250-ish. Might be worth considering, depending on how much higher your budget ceiling is.

    Good luck!

    jjkukkla,

    Do you take the light off and on very frequently?

    If you do, does the laser return to zero?

    Thank you.

    Negative sir. I put it on 3 years ago... haven't removed it since!
    Have fired a thousand rounds or so with it attached. Lots of holster practice and carry. Hasn't budged at all.

    Note: Mine is the Gen 2.

    jjkukla,

    Thanks.

    The gen 3 is out and I wonder if it's as good as gen 2 or perhaps even better.

    Would you know?

    Not Glocks, discussing the Viridian X5L. Try and keep up ;-)

    MM 24/7, I havent kept up on their Gen 3 reviews. Sorry.

    I see, getting tired of the term "generation", everything is gen this, gen that.
