    FNX 45 Tactical Light Recommendations

    Hello All,

    I finally pulled the trigger and picked up a FNX 45 Tactical in black. I need to put a light on my new toy right away. This is my bedside gun and so the ability to sit in a drawer for a long time without loosing battery power and total amount of light output are key for me; weight savings is not. I'm putting a red dot on this gun (probably a Burris fastfire 3) so I don't think I need a laser but would be open to the option.
    My budget is anything less that 300 bucks.

    I looked at the Surefire X300 as well as the Streamlight comparable... any other recommendations? I simply don't have the time to research all the options out there and many of you are experts in this area so I trust the opinions on this forum explicitly.

    Thank you very much for your time and input.

    DS

    Surefire X300U gets my vote every time... it's a solid pistol light!

    While surefire is a very fine light, owned several in the past, I went with the streamlight tlr-1HL and have nothing but good things to say about it. Quality is impeccable, feels solid and very well made. Extremely bright, easy to use and half the price. I knew if I didn't like it I would have 30 days to return it, never crossed my mind onece I mounted it to my FNXT. You will not be disappointed either way you go.

    I also use my FNX45T as my bedside weapon. I added a Burris FF3 and TLR 1HL light. I got the light with a free promotional giveaway from FN when I bought the weapon. It fits perfectly on my FNX and at 800 lummens this light is super bright. Good luck with your decision and you will enjoy the FNX!

    My new FNX45T is now my bedside weapon as well and I put a Streamlight TLR 1HL on it. I have several Surefire lights but I am extremely happy with the TLR 1HL for significantly much cheaper.
