    I finally got an APL-Glock today, well worth the wait. The mount is now aluminum and overall quality appears to be excellent.
    One warning.... do not buy the "universal" APL model if you intend to use it on a Glock. Contrary to the information on Inforce's web site, it's not really compatible with Glocks.
    I made that mistake initially, and found that the light was off-center and one of the switches had insufficient space to the trigger guard. When I contacted Inforce, they confirmed that the APL does not work well with Glocks. As usual, their customer service was excellent, and within two days I received the APL-Glock model in exchange. This one works perfectly.
    The switches are positive with a nice "click", and the beam strength and spill is nice (not blinding like those 800 lumen lights). Highly recommended.

    Are you posting under two different accounts?
    Stick


    I have been asked to point out by board policy that I am Magpul's photographer. I have also done work for 150 or so manufacturers within the firearm community, my work has been used for web, catalog, banners, magazines, covers, etc. I have also shot work for the US Military where it has been used in training aids. I am prior service and a full time LEO.

    I also shoot and write for various publications. My primary focus is weapons, accessories and related equipment reviews. Manufacturers can reach me through any of the boards. If you have something new, let me know.

    Because the first post is a review video made from plouf daddy (spelling) aka Mrgunsngear. Stick was wondering if Wheelgun is an alternative account. If that's not the case you might want to change the title.

    All your posts (except one) are promoting Inforce, which seems odd to say the least.

    The 2nd post by OP does not read like mrgunsngrears posts, I think it's just someone using his video.

    Well, I've been waiting several months for this new APL model. Like me, I know many people were looking for more information on it. But although had been shipping for over a month, nobody had posted any real reviews of it until MrGunsgear last week. In his review he confirmed some of the features (like aluminum mount) were indeed present, so I decided to order one. Upon receipt I encountered some issues so I posted that here too. It's true I haven't posted much on this site, but there's nothing unusual going on here.

    Just so I understand for the future, if I post a link to a review done by somebody else, I'm supposed to make an explicit statement that I'm not that person? Seems a bit strange, I see others posting links all the time, never seen anyone request that.

    Speaking of the APL, I'm on my third one. First gen I had to send back for a loose clamp. Inforce sent me a gen 2 which ultimately developed a rapid battery drain. The gen 2 recently went back for an inspection/repair which I requested and they ended up sending me a gen 3. I did not request a gen 3. Anyway so far so good. One thing I noticed on the gen 3 is that the lever has a bit more "play" before it activates the light. Maybe this is a build in design to keep from bumping the lever and turning the light on.
