Default Flashlight pressure switch.

For those of you who have a flashlight on your AR, do you also have a pressure switch?

I received my TruGlo 20mm red dot today and finally got it mounted a little bit ago. When I installed my flashlight, I ran the chord up, through the base, and up front to the hand guard. I like the idea of the switch, but, honestly, it really just seems to be a jumble that is likely unnecessary.

So, for those of you who have a flashlight mounted, do you use a pressure switch, and why?

Nope, I mount my lights so I can actuate them with my thumb on the rear clicky.

I've been doing a lot of experimenting with weapon mounted light (WML) position and activation. I have a couple different lights. Both have a momentary/on switch on the back. One has an integrated mount and one is in an offset mount.

A lot depends on how/where the light is mounted.


When I get a little extra, I'm going to buy this light:

The tape switch on this allows for both momentary and fixed on.

The great benefit of the tape switch is being able to activate the light without changing your grip. Believe it or not, this is a huge advantage when under stress.
