Why we picked this one - The Streamlight ProTac is the alternative option for the Surefire M300 for the price. They have similar performance and features, but slightly different as far as design and lumen intensity.

The ProTac runs on 1 CR123A or 1 AA alkaline battery, which gives the name ProTac Dual Fuel weapon light. It can produce up to 350 lumens that last about 1.75 hours. When on the low lumen setting it’s about 15 hours.

What we love about the ProTac - This weapon light has the same mounting footprint as the Surefire M300C & M600, which means the user can use light mounts made for the Surefire on the ProTac without any issue.

Another great thing is that the light comes with a pressure switch at no additional cost to you. For the performance & best for the money, the ProTac is the way to go.

Surefire M300 - Best Compact Size

Why We Pick This One - The Surefire M300C Scout is the ultimate gold standard for all miniature style weapon light on the market.

With the right light mount on the X95, this thing is the best shotgun weapon light you can get on the market besides the M600 (long version).

It runs on a single CR123A battery, which can produce up to 500 intense lumens simply by pressing the tail cap switch.

What People Like About It On A CQB Gun - Depend on how you setup your Tavor, whether be a regular 18″ or a short barrel Micro X95, you can get the tail cap pressure switch adapter SR07 for the M300C to fit your compact tactical preference.

Surefire X300U - Best For 12 O' Clock Mount

X95 with surefire x300u
Why people love the X300 - The X300 is the godfather of pistol weapon light and you can also mount it on AR15 and other tactical carbines.

The best spot to mount the X300 on the X95 is the top rail on 12 O' clock... inline with the optic for good grip ergonomics.

The X300 ultra model produces up to 1000 lumen using its LED precision TIR lens (2 CR123A batteries), the bright non lethal concentrated light beam deters threats up close, and also provides extensive peripheral illumination for max situational awareness.

The X300U-B is the same as the X300U-A but with a T-slot mounting design, which allows the user to adjust the tension on the mount even if the rail mount starts to wear out.

Inforce WMLx - Best Control Ergonomics

The Inforce WMLx is one of our favorites weapon light for its unique ergonomics that allows the shooter to naturally place their thumb over the pressure switch at an angle.

The only complain The light can produce up to 800 lumens of vibrant concentrated white light plenty high-intensity beam fills your field of view for close to mid-range target identification.

Great for night shoot and CQB home defense. The WMLx Series light is ultra-compact, durable, and offers three operating modes: Constant Momentary Strobe Recommend mounting the light on the top rail with

Why Use Weapon Light On X95

Adding a compact size weapon light to the X95 helps with 3 things:

  • Target identifications in low light conditions
  • Non lethal vision impairment against threats
  • IR light for stealth, Only visible under Night Vision (Military applications)

Tips On Setting Up Weapon Light On The X95

The standard 16" barrel X95 has a little bit more rail space to mount the light based on your preferences. The SBR X95 doesn't have much room for accessories, but you can make it work by following the tips listed below:

  • Mount the light and the activation switch for ambi use
  • Mount low profile light on top of the rail as long as you can activate it easily (Surefire X300 works)
  • Mount light at an angle for better ergonomics (No longer Ambi)

Tips On Laser Device Setup

If the idea of mounting a Mil-Spec grade laser device like the Steiner DBAL on the X95 gets you excited, then check this out:

The advangage of having a laser point of the X95 helps with close quarter aiming without estimating holdover using the optic reticle.

Place the constant offset dot on the effective hit zone and you're good to go. Recommend mounting the DBAL laser device's visible laser unit as close to the bore as much as possible with less laser offset for better accuracy.

Top rail mounting is the most optimal but the laser will have about 4" height over bore issue. Side mouting is the best, especially if you can find a sweet spot where you can easily activate the device by pressure switch AND also operate the weapon light without changing your grip.

X95 Weapon Light Activation Switch Tips

To make your setup much easier please check out the Top 6 Tac Light Remote Pressure Switches

Activation switch is more important than what you might realize if you get some aftermarket ones.

They will provide you with a better control ergonomics and flexible mounting positions for different tactical applications.

One great example we want to share is the law enforcement light applications, where they utilize these two modes

When holding down a suspect with a light, its easier to use constant on mode, so the officer can let go their fingers holding the momentary light switch.

Ambidextrous Tips

For users who engage in many room clearing exercises, which require switching sides alot. It's important to set up your weapon light and laser in a way that set you up for success.

This is why we highly recommend the top rail 12 o'clock mount for the Inforce WML. Same grip ergonomics from left to right, to activate the light with your thumb effortlessly.

If you mount an X300 on the left side-rail on the X95 for right-handed shooters, then they will probably find it nice if a pressure switch is taped on the opposite side of the gun. So if they want to switch to the support side, they can activate the light using the pressure switch.

Which ever way you can reach the light and  feel like you can get a positive firm grip, then that's your sweet spot. Then switch hands to see if the control feels the same.
