  1. Yes, I got my Surefires second hand as well. Great deals on EBay. One lasted for years, and when it went finally went down (older model, lots of use an abuse), Surefire replaced it with the current upgraded model, no questions asked. Amazing customer service. Streamlight is a good value, but not build as heavy duty (there are entire articles comparing them in detail), and most importantly more me, the toggle butterfly switch is uni-directional. Only one direction is used for constant on and other other for momentary. Personally, I find the complete ambi set up of Surefire a lot more user friendly, intuitive and better for stressful situations. I borrowed my friend's Viridian and ran it for a couple days. While the green laser is super bright, the adjustments were horrible, build was very flimsy, and I seriously doubt it would survive one accidental or intentional knock against a barricade or drop on the deck. I would definitely hesitate to bet my life on it my $0.02
  2. I Totally agree with 98Z5V. The activation method that best suits your preferred grip will likely dictate the best position. I run a sure X200 on my Glock, and use a "C-clamp" type grip on my AR forend with the index finger extended straight towards the target. So, using my support hand thumb to sweep the butterfly switch of the X300 is almost identical to sweeping it when holding my Glock. Plus, as 98Z5V wrote, in the 12 or 6 o'clock position it's ambi if you need to switch sides.
  3. Surefire X300 mounted 12 0'clock in front of a Daniel Defense fixed front sight post. So, on 1x power, you can see a little blur in the bottom of the optical image.
  4. I've got the same one mounted with an Aero Lightweight 1-piece mount. It works pretty well. The illumination on mine is pretty worthless though. It's really only visible in low light, and gets washed out by the rifle-mounted tac-light.
  5. I'm sure it will do you just fine. The testing data is out there, though. It's broken down by types of brakes and port configuration relative to size and caliber. The top three contenders for overall reduction of felt recoil and rearward motion are: Nathan Wright's Beast Brake Terminator Brakes (NZ) APA Fat Bastard Brake
  6. Welcome local friend
  7. Nice, thanks
  8. Wow...if these had only been available when I started my build. Could have saved over $400! That's a barrel!
  9. Not sure what Gen mine is, but it looks similar to that picture. Bought it a couple years ago.
  10. I think it's this one: https://www.midwestindustriesinc.com/product-p/mi-308ss15-dh.htm
  11. Stock is a MOE right now. Might change it, but will have adapters for flush cups Rail is Midwest industries - the one they made before KeyMod or M-Lok came out. .
  12. Flush cups, QD, hooks, any preference, and why?
  13. Cool. Makes sense. Thanks.
  14. Thanks. I've got a Vicker's on my AR15. Love it, but not what I'll need for a match/PRS event. That VTAC with the sleeve might work.
  15. Look forward to that range report - they look great!
