Yes, they will.



I just picked up a cheaper alternative. http://www.ambientweather.com/molez5.html



I am very pleased with it. With shipping it was only $57. Side by side from what I have seen at a local gunshop, its much brighter than the M3. Plus I have used it at the range. I put 500 rounds thru my M&P with it attached and with the light on. It worked great. The light did not once flicker nor did it switch off under recoil. It stayed tight and in place. Being my M&P is my nightstand pistol, the Z5 is a great alternative to a $125 Streamlight product.

Yes it will fit, I have the m6 for my 40 when its on the night stand. If the light you get has a plastic lens put a light coat of vasaline on it if you have the light on your gun at the range. This will stop muzzel blast from burning your lens

Ledwave light

It's a good light but NOT a "duty use" type item... I left mine on for an extended time (power went out) and the lens melted! The body is plastic, which makes it light, but seems very breakable... BUT great for the money.

I also have the x200 which is VERY rugged, lens is glass, body metal, etc. BUT it was expensive (even used on ebay...)



So... you do get what you pay for...

I agree. Thats why in my original post I stated that its my "night stand" pistol. I am not an LEO, and if I were, yes I would spend extra money to get a top quality product. But for the money and the purpose of a "night stand" pistol, it fits the bill just fine.

Ledwave

True enough! Just my 2c, 'cause all these lights look similar online... You REALLY see the difference up close and personal. This one is great for the money as a night stand accessory!

So would it be safe to say this is overkill for inspecting thumps in the night? This probably kicked the "SA-XD's" Insight Mini off the throne.

M&P with TLR-1





The Z5 light isn't as high quality as others available. The replacement lamps may be difficult to obtain. It may be OK for home use but I wouldn't use it as a duty weapon light.

If looking for a pistol-mounted light I would either go with the Surefire X200 (A or B) or the Streamlight TLR-1

Not at all. My "things that go bump in the night" nightstand gun is my 9mm CZ SP-01 (19+1) with nightsights and a Streamlight M-6 unit. All bases are covered with this combo.
