I admit it, I want to have it all. :D I want my lightweight PF9 to be as small and light as it is to be concealable, but want a laser and a light as well.

It appears that there are several laser options out there that don't involve using the front rail. That opens up this rail for a light, but there isn't much space there....

Is there any light out there that could be effective for identifying a target and wouldn't look like a 4D Maglight duct taped to the pistol? :eek:

I've seen the "Mission First Tactical Torch Backup Weapon Light" which appears to win in the category of small, and is 20 lumens. I'm not sure if that's enough to be useful, but I thought I'd share it here with the group.

Anyone have a better small light option?

That MFT light looks like it might compare to the
LED keychain lites you get free.

Any of these--if they send the right model, there's one that's 10mm longer--
will fit the PF-9 rail, and run on a 15266:

Not mil spec in construction, and the Chinese lumens are classicly inflated, but fine for mere mortals. Enjoy.

Reading this older thread, wanted to make a suggestion:

Try the Viridian C5 light, I have one and use it on my smaller pistols, but on my PF9, its perfect.
Hey thanks for the idea! That light looks pretty good. Does yours protrude forward of the barrel at all, or bulge at the sides?

Any chance of posting a picture with it mounted?

Thanks again!
Tom

This is not my PF9, but another persons PF9 with a Viridian C5L posted on the internet.



They are basically the same size, C5-C5L, so it gives you an idea of the size. And it is wider than the dustcover/rail of the PF9, but not much.

However, while bright, the beam is not as focused as a larger light such as the Streamlight TLseries, and the button switches are sometimes too easy to be activated.

The beam is a wide dispersion type, and it also has a strobe feature. However , it is a good compromise, in terms of very compact size. The light only series are not expensive, but adding the laser feature does increase the cost quite a bit.

And also the attachment method is not a quick as for example, the Streamlight WML's, and the attachment points have to be set for different models of pistols.

I use mine on my Walther PPS M1, S&W MPc, and PF9
