Bright Light Green Laser

I've been watching and wanting one of these for a long time. I have a TLR-1 that I bought a couple years ago at a gun show as a display model, only paid $35.00 bucks was impressed with it.
It has been on my Amazon watch list a long time and they finally got there heart right. The Streamlight TLR-2 G it has the Green Laser, rail mount. It is rated 300 Lumens. It is a little brighter than the TLR-1 but it may need some new batteries.

Oh darn needs a rail to mount on pistol...I don't own a pistol with a rail looks like I'm going to have to buy a new pistol with a rail, darn it. What to do, what to do, what brand and model will I pick?

I bought this TLR-2 knockoff on eBay several years back. I placed it side by side with the Streamlight and it's very hard to tell the difference. It works great, I've shot 1000's of rounds through my AR-15 with this light attached and it's been 100% reliable. It's blinding bright and the green laser is real nice. I'm not much of a laser guy but it looks cool and the laser alone can light up a room. I think I paid about $125. Streamlight didn't make this with a green laser when I bought it. I have searched numerous times to find another and I have never seen them again.
You definitely need I new gun with a rail.

Not the best pictures.

That could be a possible candidate. Not decided yet. Kimber does not offer the exact pistol with features I have in mind so some compromise will be needed.

May go with something that has a threaded barrel, so that limits the choices.

In no special order:
Custom TLE/RL (TFS)
Desert Warrior (TFS)

EDIT: Also up for consideration Stainless Pro TLE/RL

I would love it if they made a blue or stainless Warrior with (TFS) it already has a rail.
OR if they would add a threaded barrel to the Stainless Pro TLE/RL that would be cool.

Good luck to you; maybe Kimber will bring out something like that next year. (Of course, it wouldn't be in stores until December).

I took the new light with me last night during the midnight hound dog walk, no surprise the light is very bright and the green laser would work well for rifle distance so I could put it on the AR10 or AR15 would make it rough on any zombies in the hood.
I guess I will just use it hand held for the time being.

I have one of these on my hd gun. They are great dual units. I also have the older red version which is not led. Due to its wavelength, the green beam and dot are more visible during the day where red is mostly visible at night and you'll only see the beam if there are particles in the air, smoke or dust, etc...

Forewarned: Do not lose the allen wrench. They are a bitch to find. What I did is take one of the smallest jeweler flat screwdrivers and ground it just to fit those screws. Also much easier than the tiny allen wrench.

But please do not buy knock offs. You only hurt the legit company forcing higher prices because of reduced sales.
