Good for the Price
Just purchased this item and was able to easily install it on a Tactical Rifle. For the money it is a good light. Strobe works fine. I have it installed on a Mossberg 22 cal Tactical. I guess you can get something more powerful, but for a varmint gun, it works just fine.

Great price, but unreliable.
Right out of the packaging, it didn't work. Knowing that few other options were within my price range, I took a chance on fixing rather than exchanging it. For the money, it has a very bright LED bulb, and correctly fits the weaver rail under a full-size frame (not a pocket rocket). The ergonomics are very good; the switch connector rod presses "on" from the right side (index finger) and "off" from the left side (left thumb when gripping iso style). However, I disliked the strobe, which activates at alternating on-off cycles, and cannot be disabled or avoided. The price is great if you're willing to take the chance. Save the receipt in case you get one like I did. The problem with this unit is not the flashlight - it's the strobe circuitry. The unit works for a few seconds, then can't be turned back on. First I cleaned the tapping oil from under the barrel assembly threads. It worked a while longer. Then it wouldn't stay on unless I maintained pressure on the switch with my finger. So I took out the connector rod and filed off its high points. Much smoother now and doesn't bind. With the dorsal cover still off, I lined the solder points behind the switch with electrician's tape, just in case. They are within thousandths of an inch of the anodized aluminum cover. But the unit still didn't work. I finally applied 3 VDC directly to the bulb circuitry. Dead. Must have finally fried the circuit board, possibly due to my over-tightening the bulb. Finally I located the cathode (ground) side of the LED. By soldering a jumper wire from there to ground, I got a totally reliable flashlight which no longer has a strobe feature (good riddance). Covered it up with liquid tape and reinstalled - works flawlessly now. Bottom line: If you like to make stuff, this thing is basically a low-cost "kit" that you can convert into a real tactical flashlight. But if you want something that you can pull off the shelf and mount right away on your nightstand HDG... This is not the flashlight that you can entrust with your life. On the other hand, if the manufacturer ever decided to do away with the silly strobe feature and replaced it with a hardwired LED, that would merit the unit two more stars IMO.

Great light for the money

I have this installed on my 715t .22 rifle. Mounted real easy. Its very bright and the strobe is awesome, it is pretty blinding just like the light. I will be buying one for my other rifle. Hope this helps you decide, if your on the fence dont wait any longer you wont be disappointed.

Super bright works great right out of the packaging. Battery has lasted 2 years original batteries and still bright. An awesome light for $30. Mounted on a Smith & Wesson sd9ve. I've had no trouble with it at all. You won't be disappointed.

Cheap and works

I bought this gun light in 2011. The battery that came with it didn't last long. After I replace It works good, nice tight center hot spot out to 50+ yds. Med to dim light out side of the center. Not super bright, but you can see what your shooting at. Strobe is good. It's held up past 600 rounds of 9 . So far a good compact light for 30$.

1. AS FAR AS I KNOW, NEBO DOES NOT MAKE A PRESSURE SWITCH FOR THIS LIGHT AT PRESENT----BUT CONTACT THEM AN ASK ABOUT IT---WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY HAVE UPDATED
by WOODYS61
2. I've taken mine apart and don't see how you could fit a switch onto it, because the switch isn't in the end cap. If you're looking for a pressure-switched light in the same price range, I also bought the CenterPoint laser/flashlight kit, which came with two optional styles of end caps: One with a pushbutton switch, and one with a remote pressure switch. (The CenterPoint LED is very bright, but unfortunately it does use button-style batteries so it won't last as long.)

3. Yes , iv had it on my AR. 50-60 yds max range though. Only 190 lumens. But a nice tight hot spot.

1. It only has one locating cross-bolt, so it should mount on either Weaver or Picatinny-style rails. Keep in mind though, the switch is side-push style. When it's mounted underneath the rail, the switch pushes from the right side to go on, from the left side to go off. If you mount it in some other configuration, consider the ergonomics and whether reaching the switch will become a distraction.
