Optics, Lights, Lasers, Holsters & Accessories / Re: Suitcase for PS90

I got an email reply back from the company, finally. I was told that my mounted light would have to come off to make it fit in the case. And, it is doubtful my extended charging handles would work either - as the case is already a super tight fit (these make the gun wider too).

So, so much for that.... Damn....

I was actually thinking of buying one soon...

Cool photos. Thanks for sharing

Sorry to hear it. I am on Candle Power Forums and other forums with flash light sections - your experience does not seem typical. But, crap happens, I suppose.

We'll see how these two hold up over time. But, I am impressed with them.

Ok - I bought a 2nd one today to carry with me. That strobe is killer at 1000 lumens - and the strobe activation is super fast. Light is also brighter and a tiny bit shorter than my Nightcore SRT6. So, I couldn't resist :)

Optics, Lights, Lasers, Holsters & Accessories / Fenix TK16 LED light
« on: August 21, 2016, 08:46:47 PM »
I bought a new flashlight today - a Fenix TK16. This is my first Fenix light, despite probably owning close to 40 LED lights over the years...

Today, I decided to sell my Streamlight TRL1 that I briefly had on my new PS90 carbine (the TRL1 was previously on a Rock River carbine, that I recently sold). And, I am going back to a traditional shaped flashlight for my PS90... Sorta like I previously had on my 1st PS90 carbine that I used to own many years ago.

Now, I like my other TRL1 that is on my SCAR 16. But because of the location of the side rails on the PS90, the usefulness of the TRL1 isn't as great as it is on other rifles. I have to move my hand up to activate the light on the PS90. And, I'd rather have something with longer battery life, and that can use 18650 rechargables instead of primary cells.

I did a lot of reading to decide what I wanted - I considered going with an Eagletac T200C2... But, in the end, I decided to go with a Fenix TK16. I picked one up today at Academy.

It is sweet. I like that the medium setting can last 10 hours - and it is more than bright enough on the medium setting for inside of my house. The high setting lasts almost 3.5 hours, and it is much brighter than the TRL1 output. And, the Turbo lasts 1 hr and 10 min. The Turbo is damn, damn bright - about 1000 lumens.

For its purpose (on a home defense carbine), I don't ever see going more than a medium or high setting, unless I go outside at night with it. I plan to leave it on the medium setting by default.

However - I just came in form being outside.... The Fenix has more throw than my daily carry flashlight - the Nightore SRT6. And, the strobe on the Fenix comes on at the full 1000 lumens. It almost makes me sick looking at it.  :P It is brighter than the strobe on my Nightcore, and even easier to activate. I'd hate to have that turned on in my face.

I've been carrying my Nightcore for 2 years now. But, I may end up getting another Fenix TK16 later on as a new daily carry light. Because of my job, I use a flash light daily. And, I am always looking for something equivalent to a pocket sun. This Fenix is a little smaller than the Nightcore too. And, with the way the strobe feature is activated,  I think it makes for a better carry light than my Nightcore.

(The pic shows the clip, but I removed the clip to mount on the carbine)

sold pending funds!

FS in Bryan/College Station area - One Streamlight TRL1 weapon light. $65!

This light has been sitting on a gun that was NEVER fired after the light was mounted. So, it is like new!

I took this TRL1 light off of a Rock River carbine I had until very recently - to use on another gun. I then bought a brand new TRL1 to replace it. There were issues with one of the keys for it when I took it out of the box - so Streamlight sent me another brand new one via mail, and they had me send mine in after I received the replacement.

I've since sold the Rock River carbine, and I have decided to mount a traditional style flashlight on my new PS90 carbine.

So, I am selling the TRL1 for $65 shipped or local pickup. Comes with the allen wrench, all included "keys" (the picatinny rail one is installed now) and the two Streamlight batteries that came with it. Light's basicaly been mounted and sitting in my safe for a 3-4 months now.

Please email me at and the first "I'll take it" with an exchange of information and exchanging address/payment info gets it.

Now, that's funny :)

Hahaha. Well, we'll see. I ordered it from a shop in FL. I never heard of them, but I couldn't find anything negative about them online.

So I made it to the range today and round about 200 rounds through the R51.  Used 100 Winchester white box 115gr.  Also ran some Hornady Critical Duty, Federal HST 147gr +P, and 115gr reloaded with a mix of brass... Zero malfunctions.  They all shot pretty much the same at 7 yards.  The sights are easier to pickup than my Jericho 941.  It is very easy to shoot well..  I really have no complaints about it and I trust it more than the Bersa 380 CC that I sold a while back.

Good to hear - I haven't paid it too much attention - but there is a thread on the Beretta Forum about the gun - with you tube vids and everything. Seems to be pretty negative. Glad yours works fine

Today, I checked with the place I ordered it from online. He claims that because of rules that Sig has - the optic must come from his warehouse to his store front first - and then he has to ship it to me. He said it is on the way to him...

Weird... Maybe it is because he is so low below the MSRP that everyone else is selling it - I don't know...

I finally just now had the refund hit my credit card. Amazing how a purchase goes thru right away, but not the refund...

Still waiting on the one I ordered to ship...

I personally use a Mepro 21 on my SCAR. It has no electronics at all. That is one thing I like about it. It uses tritium and fiber optics.

But, I hear ya...
Damn that thing costs more than my gun! And that thing is on a SCAR!
Man I'm mad jelly!  XD
I hate being a poor student man! I can't even afford a half decent AR15. Oh well I'll make enough money to get all the cool stuff once I get all this stuff done.

Ive owned 6 over the years. Red dots usually give my eyes fits. So, I always get the Mepro 21 with the triangle reticle. I even had one on the CX4 Beretta carbine I just sold. Optic was worth almost as much as the3 rifle...

Here is a pic :) (sorry, just showin off :) )

I pocket carried a M&P Shield for like 3 years. Much better gun that that Keltec, IMHO.

Look at the Ruger LCP as well, if you want something smaller than a 9mm

I prefer 1x optics (red dot type optics). But, I previous considered getting a Trijicon 1-4 scope a few years ago when I very first got my SCAR 16S. And, I did TONS of reading on various scopes... The Nikon P-223 is a decent scope.

Law Enforcement Could Seize Semiautomatics Under Ga. Bill

Georgia lawmakers have put forth several gun control bills this year, including a measure that would call on law enforcement to seize and destroy what the proposal deems “assault weapons” from gun owners.

A major purpose of HB 731 is “to designate certain weaponry and ammunition as contraband and to require seizure of such by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.”

Comedian Steven Crowder Looks to Debunk ‘Common Sense’ Gun Control in Undercover Video

In the end, Crowder noted that people who’ve “never owned guns, fired guns or even seen guns are the ones most likely to — remarkably quickly — sign petitions to actively ban your guns. These are the same people electing your next president. It’s common sense!”
