A few weeks ago I went online to find an inexpensive rail light for my Grandsons 1911 railed version. I didn't want to spend a ton of money and I didn't want any fancy features. I found the AIM Sports FQ150. After I got it, I was so impressed with the quality and fitment I decided to get one for my P226R which has become my primary home defense handgun.
It fits perfectly except for extending past the muzzle 1/4". The rail is the perfect width for the SIG rail and the lock up lug engages the most outboard slot. It's a little loosey goosey on the Grandsons 1911. Ok, it's not the smallest or lightest rail light, but I'll bet it's the cheapest. It uses the CR123A battery (furnished) which has a shelf life of like 10 years and also uses the CREE LED. 150 lumens. There's no mention of water resistance so I'd guess there is none, however it seems to be sealed with o-rings. I'd guess it's somewhat rain resistant. A simple cross slide on/off switch which the on switch can be accessed with the trigger finger on a right handed shooter. The off switch is on the other side of the light. It also comes with 3 colored lenses which can be swapped for the installed clear lens and a spare lens o-ring. No laser, no flashing, no momentary contact. Just a simple light.
Here is the mfg website:
AIM Sports Inc
The best part is the price. I got this light shipped to my house for $34.64 from these folks:
AIM Sports FQ150 150 Lumen Tactical Quick Release Pistol Light
As I write this and verify websites, I find they are out of stock. Just bookmark it and check periodicly and I'd guess they'll have more soon. Shipping was a paltry $3.65.
I have several guns with rails and it fits all of them with varying degrees of looseness. None are sloppy, but it fits the P226R rail the very best. The fitment is slightly less precise on the Mosquito, but I wouldn't hesitate to use the light on the Mosquito. or any of my other guns for that matter.
