Good light, poor mount – Super Fire 14V Wf501D CR123A With Gun Mount Reviews

posted by Colinpark on 07/09/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
The light is very bright and so far I can see targets out to 50m easily. the tape switch works fine, I used tape to hold the switch to my vertical grip.
Cons:
The cross bars on the mount are not moveable and don't line up with the rail on my CX-Storm. Had they made one crossbar moveable it would have resolved the issue. Also the use of thumbscrews instead of allenhead screws would make putting it on and taking it off easier
Other:
The light is a bit long, but bearable and way cheaper than a Surefire.
Bottomline:
You may need another mount for this light, but a great way to get setup without breaking the bank. I suspect this light might suffer on a full calibre rifle, but should be fine on a pistol calibre carbine.
