Anybody have a recomendation for a laser/light combo? how much are they?
Would you recomend mouting one to a rifle? I want somthing that will work in the day outside (probably green) whats the price difference on a laser vs a laser light combo?

Wrong forum, for two out of three of your new topics. There is an optics/accessories subforum. Also, Google can be your friend.

Surefire X400, Streamlight TLR-2

otherwise, go for a laser and a seperate flashlight.
Lazers:

Insight Tech- PEQ-5
Laser Devices- OTAL
Laser Devices- ITAL
Laserlyte-K15 (this is a green laser)

Lights:
Surefire X300
Streamlight TLR-1
Surefire Scout
Surefire Scout Mini
Any decent mini handheld in a a VTAC, larue, DD< elzetta, etc. mount. Surefire G2 lights are very popular for ruggedness and low cost.


Otherwise you can buy those cheap knockoff, airsoft combo's. they will either break, not hold zero (laser) or just suck. Gotta pay to play $$.

I'm happy with my tlr2. Light is nice and bright and the laser does its job well. My only gripe is that it can be a little hard to see when it's super bright outside. But then again maybe it'd be too bright at night if it was super clear during the day.

how much do they run? and are they worth putting on a rifle? (siaga 7.62x39)

anywhere from $90 (TLR-1) through $700 (PEQ-5)

do you NEED a light on your rifle? do you shoot at night? is it the first gun you pickup when something goes bad?

Ask yourself these questions. Maybe you want it just to have, who knows. maybe the Mall Ninja phase is where you're at. Its all good, get what you want.

I think if its a defensive gun or you shoot at night, a flashlight is absolutely necessary. A laser? not so much, IMO.

You're going to be looking in the $300 range for a tlr2. I'd invest in a good red dot or a holographic sight for a rifle, honestly. Plus I think an optic would require less practice than using a laser anyway.

cheaper? not necessarily, but a heck of a lot more useful for a rifle. A laser might work better for a shotgun, but I'd want a light on a shotgun too.
