    Had a little Christmas money left over after fixing my car. I found a flashlight for around $23 shipped. What the heck, it's cheap. I'll see what it's worth. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. It mounts to the rail on the XDm. It only mounts in the first slot, but I can reach the on/off switch well enough. It's an LED bulb and runs on a CR123 battery. It does not weigh much, and for the money, was a great deal. Pics:

    I'll let you know how it stands up to recoil tomorrow.

    took me a min. to figure out the second pic, but judging from the last one it sure looks like it will suit your needs..especially for $23

    Yeah, I turned off the flash and took the pic in the basement. I was actually holding the pistol in the same position in both pics. That was the only part of my basement that was clean enough to show to the internet. :)

    LOL! Love the "Off" pic.

    Your light looks as bright as my $100 TLR-1.

    I would take it apart and check the solder joints maybe add alittle more to make it better. I wish Fenix would come out with pistol lights they make a good product at a decent price.
