Weapon Light for SP01 Compact
« on: January 08, 2018, 07:48:30 PM »
I have one of those nice all steel SP-01s with the light rail.
Would like to find a quality compact light that doesn't extend past the muzzle.
Any recommendations?

thanks.

Nick, you keep posting pictures of the Olight and you're going to be responsible for making me buy one.

I've got a TLR 3 on my P01 - but it sticks out past the frame/slide (urban gray P01 so the muzzle is still out past the light/lens just a little) but on an SP01 Compact the TLR 3 would be out past the muzzle.

I've got Olights on a couple/three AR 15's and I've never had any issues with them.  Bought a couple more for road trips/lighting up the back yard to the woods when the dogs are doing their best to convince me to get out of bed at 3 AM.  That pistol light would probably be a good one, too.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

My bad  O0

This is the only real light that I've been pleased with the looks when mounted, should be second to function but...

So far a couple hundred rounds through a couple of guns with the Olight on and no issues to report.

I have 5-6 of their flashlights, good, quality items.

Darn your hide.  That little grinning devil emoji got to me.

I just ordered one.  Had almost $30 in credit (battery core charge for the big Jeep battery I had to buy a couple weeks back) with paypal so I went to the Olight web site and ordered one.  With the free shipping and the credit it "feels" like it's only costing me less than $60.

They claim delivery withint 2 to 4 days or ordering so I should get it by the end of the week, but even if it's early next week that's okay, too.

I ordered mine yesterday, straight from Olight, got a shipping e-mail today.  We'll see.

Well, it appears they use USPS to ship the lights.  In spite of what they say on their web site of a 2 to 4 day wait from ordering to delivery, they ain't gonna make it using USPS.

It took the USPS over 48 hours to get the tiny little light from their facility at Marietta, GA to their facility at Atlanta, GA.  They promise delivery by next Tuesday or Wednesday.

Oh well, it was "free."

As for the QD lever on the light, I guess that makes it easy to detach the light, lay it on the counter top and plug it in to recharge vs. laying the pistol with attached light on the counter top to recharge the battery.  The boys are grown up/moved out but I still prefer to keep the pistols out of sight.
