The O-Light Mini would be a very good choice.

Olight PL-MINI 2 fits great, itís rechargeable, 600 lumens, all aluminum construction, momentary and continuous ON and very decently priced.

Depends on what you consider "reasonable". I only light I have ever liked on a concealed-carry pistol (Glock 19) was/is the Surefire XC-1 or XC-2, but finding a suitable holster proved impossible. YMMV.

I am currently carrying a SIG P365XL (APIWB or OWB ) and a couple of SF hand-held lights, with a P365 in the support hand pocket, but am being lured by the siren song of the Glock 48 with Shield Arms' S15 magazine in the gun and 2 of the 20-rd. (S15 w/ a +5 base plate/pad extension). I have the gun and magazines, and installed their mag catch on my G48. All work flawlessly. (Think: a Really Trim G19). Trijicon HD XR sights are on the way. The only downside is that I would not have a pocket-carry BUG like my P365 that would take the same magazines.

Unlike my old G19/G26 combo, my G43 does not work with the G48/G43X magazines, and the butt of the G43X is too long for pocket carry... Decisions, decisions.

That looks really nice. I'll definitely be looking more into it and don't seem bad for under $100. Thanks

My 320 is for home defense only. It's way too big for me to carry. I have a 365 and ec9s that I pocket carry and those are even a little too heavy in the pocket.

My X-COMPACT is my carry gun and I usually carry off body in a Vertx bag since I wear scrubs to work and I canít get used to the belly bands. My APIWB does a very good job of pulling my scrubs pants down to my ankles so I only use it on weekends, etc.

For home defense I have a heavily customized full size 9mm from a different manufacturer loaded with Federal Premium Tactical LE HST 124 +P and a SureFire X300U-A 1000 lumen WML that I trust with my familyís life as a last line of defense in the unlikely scenario of a home invasion (monitored security system, 4K security camareras, impact windows & doors, biometric locks, etc are the first line of home defense and way more important, especially when I am not home). The SF X300U-A is not cheap but itís considered the gold standard for WML, sadly itís way too big for the X-COMPACT and they still havenít launched the XR-1 which I am still wondering about the design anyway.

The PL-MINI 2 rail is adjustable and fits pretty much any gun on the market although it almost seems like it was made for the X-COMPACT. The only downside is a not so great holster selection but they are out there... just donít get me started on holsters and the gas pedal...

Avoid buying a brand new Olig(h)t at any cost- they're a communist china owned company, and parts availability may evaporate at any moment because of the justified trade actions Trump is taking to punish china for the cold war they've been fighting against us, and for the Wuhan pandemic they allowed to spread globally. (Nothing wrong with buying a used Olig(h)t unit from someone).

Look at Surefire, Streamlight, or even Sig's lights. Crimson Trace may have something soon, too.

Streamlight TLR-7A, or the TLR-8 if you want a light + laser, fit flush with the 3.9” barrel. 500 lumen and user adjustable activation switches.
The Inforce APLc fits flush as well with very easy to use activation panels. It only has 200 lumen, but it’s plenty for inside a home. They have been discontinued but you may be able to find a used one.
I have and use both. I like the activation switches on the Inforce more and haven’t had any problems with it.

TLR-7A or TLR-8A. Make sure to get the "A" version. The button is way more accessible.

Iím looking at lights for a 320x carry and prefer the looks of a small light that is shorter than the barrel but am leaning towards a larger/longer light that will function as a stand off.
Maybe a SF HX30 OR SL TLR-1

Will it stick past the XCOMPACT 3.6” barrel? I was looking at a Streamlight TLR-7A.

Guys, buy (or don't buy) anything you want but if you're not going to buy anything made in China or made with parts from China, you're not going to buy much. That includes your Chevy, Dodge, Jeep, RAM, Ford, etc vehicles, your TVs/computer monitors (and your computers), pretty much anything electronic, motorcycles/ATVs, etc. It wouldn't surprise me if there was SOMETHING made it China you end up with when you buy a new SIG.

Good grief.
