If you want a rugged light that will stand up to abuse, I would recommend either the Streamlight TLR-1 or Surefire X300. If you want something lightweight and streamlined for concealed carry, I would get the Surefire XC1.

TLR-1 HL. 630 lumens, reliable as they come. They're half the price of a Surefire and in my experience, have no noticeable decrease in quality. Great beam pattern for a handgun inside a home or outside in a yard. It will light up things further away than you could probably even hit with a pistol at night. I've purchased 4 of them from (in person at their store front though not online). If you call them, not only will they price match any price they can verify on the internet, they will also beat it by 5%(has to be in stock and exact same product, even down to the color). I paid $108 for mine with their price matching. LA police gear has the lights for 124.99 right now so Nalpak would be around 118 not including tax + shipping of course.

Pair that light with your Sig and a Safariland ALS holster and you've got a setup that will last near forever. The ALS holster would work for a Streamlight TLR-1 HL or a Surefire X300.

Honestly man, you can't go wrong with anything Surefire or Streamlight. And if anyone builds a holster for a light, they're going to build for Surefire first and Streamlight second.

Do give this some thought and check things before you buy the light. Surefire and Streamlight are the top two lights that holster makers build for but there are some that only build for Surefire. If you were carrying a Glock it probably wouldn't matter much but this could matter more in a Sig P226. So check that the holster you want is available if you decide to go with Streamlight...or something else.

I've got a Veridian green laser/light combo on my P226. Pricey but works great. Cost around $300.00.
