The new Surefire dual fuel M600 Scout is pretty sweet. 1500 lumens.

I use surefire exclusively on serious guns. I normally use the scout versions as I want white and IR light. These are a bit long for very short forends so I have gone with the X300 version on a couple of guns. I think its about as compact a setup as you can make work.

Tape switches are garbage, failure points.

Use a Surefire scout 300 with an Arisaka mount, and use the stock tailcap switch.

X300V or U at 12 o'clock, tried but hate tape switches. I'll use smaller scouts at 10:30 but again use the tailcap.

Surefire mini with their dual switch. Can zip tie it down. I use it on a few rifles including my work rifle. If not that, then an x series at 12 or offset is my preferred.

OK on the second point. But its not a new failure point. All lights have a switch system. I've had dozens of surefire lights and never seen a pressure switch fail. But of course I have seen a tailcap switch fail.

You still have the tail cap switch if the tape switch fails.

I also admit I find tape switches uncomfortable to use - I prefer the forward pressure with my thumb to some of the Surefire Tapeswitch solutions I’ve tried.

I have the Streamlight PROTAC® RAIL MOUNT HL-X LONG GUN LIGHT that is dual fuel as well. It is 1000 lumens. It is reasonably priced and a lifetime warranty.

I use these on range guns and Surefire on my home defense guns.....not because I think one light is superior to the other but because the pressure pad on the Streamlight is shit compared to the Surefire switch.

You should also consider getting a Cloud Defensive pressure pad mount. Slowly getting them for all my light bearing rifles that have pressure pads.

Ive fond that on the pistol and SBR, I prefer the tail cap over the pressure pad.
