    Don't think it's been mentioned yet, but looking Arisaka lights as well. They are very well built Surefire clones. I have a 300 on my 11.5" pistol.

    Agreed on the Arisaka. Not significantly cheaper than Surefire like Streamlight is, but I do regret purchasing the latter. My Arisaka M300 on the other hand, Iím pretty happy with.

    Seriously, if you are just a casual shooter and not in the Military or Law Enforcement, do you really need a $500 G33 when you can get a cheap Chinese knock off for $50 off Ebay that will do the trick, albeit not with the same clarity.

    Why buy a Glock when you could just get a Hi Point?

    Even casual shooters should invest in quality if they have the means. Why are we supporting Chicom knockoffs here?

    I've got it down to two choices. The Eotech G33 3x or the Sig Sauer Juliet 4x magnifier. I was able to get hands on a Juliet 3x at my local gun store yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised at how clear it was. Not sure it's as clear as the Eotech, but I've found the Sig Sauer 4x on a site for $325 after coupon. That's a pretty good deal. I'm just debating on whether I want my optics all Eotech or if I can handle an Eotech/Sig Sauer combo...lol

    Iíd skip the UTG, and suggest an Arisaka Scout with one of their mounts, a Surefire tape switch and a Cloud Defensive LCS. I think Weapon Outfitters has a build-your-light tool to set this up. Also consider the Cloud Defensive OWL or Elzetta. Although, I do not recommend the Elzetta remote switch.
    Sound setups. I also like the Modlite OKW with a Reptilia body, a Surefire DS-07 cap and a Cloud Defensive LCS.

    +1 on the UTG = junk. Iíd look into running a pressure pad as opposed to the light foregrip combo. Stream light Protac line is very affordable for the quality. I run steam lights on all my work guns with no issues. Theyíve been submerged, dropped, etc.. you also can use the Arisaka adapter if you want the surefire pressure pad which is a bit more durable. Depending on what you decide to do for your grip a simple HSP Thorntail with a steam light/surefire light and tail cap would work well too. Canít get much simpler than that unless you want to spend $350 for the Cloud OWL

    As for your foregrip situation take a look at the following video. Seems like the operator has similar issue to you maybe itíll be helpful.

    I did this too. I have bad shoulders and California mandated no vertical grips. The Arisaka finger stop fits between my little and ring fingers at the 6:00 position. It is great, light, unobtrusive and gives you that traction you may want. I mounted mine on a mil spec dual insulated handguard with a MOE to Mlock (or vice versa I forget) conversion nut.
