I'm looking for a Flashlight / Laser Combo with a remote switch for a rail.

I found the Dark Ops HellFighter UnderBoss. It sounds ok and sounds like what I'm looking for.

Are there any other Flashlight / Laser combos out there that anyone would recommend?

I have found that a flashlight is no good durning daylight and you need more than a laser at night, hence the combo!

I'd go streamlight, they sell the optional remote pad switch which I'm sure most makers do

The streamlight is the model TLR-2 that has the light and lazer combo.

You could also go the Surefire route, but they are a little pricey. The model you would want is the X400 light and lazer.

I found a combo at a local shop. It's a "Shooter's Edge". This will be for home defense so distance isn't needed. Close quarters combat.

It was only $65 and I try to shop local if I can. I'm going to give it a try.

Thanks for the help.

I wouldn't expect much for $65, but I guess it's worth a try.

As said above SureFire made one, I don't think it's still made though. One sold on ebay last year for big $, can't remember exact price, maybe $800 or so.

Here's one.


I found this one at a gunshow a few years ago. It's not a Surefire, it's made by G&P Laser Products. I found a place that sold them for around $200 or so but can't locate that link right now. The dealer is a military surplus guy that buys on bases. I know him from years of buying from him. He claimed he bought three at a base in Texas. I doubt the military bought these, but they were there. I don't know what to think. Two were beat up and had sand in them, the one I bought for $100 was in nice shape. Here's a link to Google search results for it. Yes I bought something made in china! Airsoft?

Wow...that's a long link!

But I will say it's built like a tank, heavy, bright and works well. Actually it's a bit too heavy, all metal and three batteries.

I mounted it and played around with it, took some pics and now it's on the shelf. It's just not for me. If I had given it some thought at the show I wouldn't have bought it, it was a impulse buy I guess. I can't run anything airsoft on my AR's...just can't. And I didn't know what it was when I bought it.

Here's a some pics to give you an idea of what it is. I liked it better mounted on the right side of the rail, but I don't have pics of that. It uses a duel pressure switch, rear for the light, front for the laser.

The light uses a G90 120 Lumans lamp and the green laser is a 10mw.










Garage door is about 90 yards away, daylight on white, not bad.


Tree is about 130 yards.

Airsoft or not, that is a pretty cool item. I agree that i dont like to run airsoft stuff on my guns either. I do like how it is offset and "hugs" the barrel more. I hate things that hang off and look odd. That actually looks pretty good. Now if only we could get an american company to make one designed for real firearms....
