Just got batteries for the Springfield XML and popped it on my M&P 9c. The focused light is about 8-10" lower than the actual point of aim. Certainly I'm spoiled by my Glock where the lasermax laser, glock tac light, and sights all align nice and centered at the point of aim. As the light can be a great aiming tool at night, I'm less than satisfied with the off-set from the actual point of aim. Now, I wonder if this is a function of the light or the rails on the M&P.

The focused hot spot with my XML is also below the point of aim with my XD45 Tactical and my M&P9c, plus the light is loose on the M&P9c.

Sounds like this could be kind of a problem. I was planning on the forthcoming Surefire X200L. But taking into account its' high price, I might have to reconsider if the light is off target.



Does anyone else have similar issues with the Surefire?

+1 on the loose fit neglected to mention it.



I slipped the XML light on my Glock 23 - the focused white light, laser, and sights all center up.... THE WAY IT SHOULD BE. Maybe I shouldn't be dissapointed with the XML light... perhaps it's really just the the rails on the 9C that don't run true to the point of aim. I wonder what Smith & Wesson considers apropriate for the tolernaces or if they even considered it?

999,



The X200L looks as it will come with the 5 watt flood lamp that comes on the X200B, not the focused 3watt beam that comes with the "A" model. The X200B is designed to light up a wider area such as an entire corner or wall of a room. On my full size M&P40 at about 3-6 feet, the center of the flood beam is almost dead-on with the sights. Beyond that, it floods out to cover a larger area. I imagine that the 3 watt focused beam of the "A" model is about dead-on with the sight of the M&P as well, and out to a further distance than the "B" model.

That's good news. I will be keeping my eyes out for the X200L when comes out.



Good info.



Thanks for the response.
