Recommendations for Light/Laser Combo?

Hey all,

I recently purchased a Sig P226 Tac Ops (.40) and am really bored while I am waiting for my magazines to be fixed/replaced by Sig.

I have been interested in purchasing a light/laser combo for this gun; however, I am not sure about quality and reasonableness of prices online or at gun shows. Any recommendations on a good quality unit that doesn't have too big of a price tag?

Thanks in advance!

For a Laser only, I like the CTC Laser grips. If I were to look for a Combo Pkg, my first look would be at the Streamlight Combo, TLR-2.

The TLR-2 is a full size light ; the 226 is a full size gun. Makes sense.

However, the TLR-4 is supposedly the compact version of the TLR-2, but it's almost the same size at half the price. However, the -4 doesn't have a strobe; I think the -2 might. Anyway, I'm happy with my TLR-4 on my 2022 - which isn't much smaller than the 226.

Aztex can you post a pic of your set up? I have a 2022 as well and was looking at the TLR-4.

No problem - click on pic for a full-size image:



Also, I should point out the TLR-2 puts out 135 lumens; the TLR-4 110 lumens.

For the money, IMHO the Streamlight TLR2 is the way to go...

Hi JReale -

Your decision may depend on what you want to use the laser/light for. I just got a NcSTAR combo green laser & light, model AQTPFLG for ~$60 on Amazon. This may be the same one on Optics Planet for about the same price:

Nc Star QR Compact Tactical Green Laser and Flashlight Set w/ Weaver Mount FREE S&H AQPTFLG. NcSTAR Laser Sights.

Be sure to check though, as the one I got is a quick disconnect (works great) for Weaver/Picatinny rail mount. I put it on my SIG SP2022 and it fits fine, nice and secure. The laser and light are readily interchangable. Unit takes one CR123A lithium battery, which is included along with an Allen wrench for adjustments. Light is plenty bright for in the house, and the laser is very easy to see and sight-in. Only potential drawbacks I notice are (1) the ON/OFF is a horizontal left to right slide vs a "click", so could potentially turn the unit on when it is holstered, and (2) the temperature operating range of 59 to 95 degF. But, it serves my purposes just fine for $60.

I have a Streamlight TLR2 (http://streamlight.com/product/product.aspx?pid=81)... exceptional enhancement to my P226 .40. Small but powerful with options of light only / laser only / light & laser combo. Check Dvor (url=http://www.dvor.com/]DVOR.com - Private Sales Shopping - Invitation Only Membership Store - Exclusive Deals on Cool Gear & Top Brands[/url) for a good deal.

We are issued the Streamlight TLR 2S, they are very reliable and have a real good battery life. Trust me when I say that we have kicked them around and gave them a workout. They have held there own and are very bright....Here is a link:

I have a TLR-2S on my P220 and I really like it. I think the strobe is a great addition. The weight is a bit of an issue, but I really like it. I have the TLR-4 on my P226 MK25 and I also like it. It doesnt have a strobe, but is plastic and lighter. I may switch the two out because of the weight issue- given that the 220 is heavy on its' own and I plan to use my MK25 as a home defense weapon. Either are good choices.

TLR-4 on my SP2022. A little miffed that the allen key that came with it (1.5mm, I think) stripped the second I installed it into the set screw. Bought a forged one today, will let you all know if it worked.
