    This actually led to a somewhat comical scene recently when I was trying to move one of my X300s from a Gen 5 gun to a Gen 4. It took me completely disassembling the crossbar mount to realize what the issue was. I had swapped the insert for use on another pistol and forgot since it worked fine on the Gen 5 gun.

    Starting with the SF Classic 6v lights (wired tape switch), going through the Nitrolon (early SL switch), X200s (SL switches), and now the various iterations of the X300U I have never been able to reliably activate the body mounted switches; I have always had to use a remote switch because of short fingers - or use my support hand. The same applies to Streamlight's offerings.

    I keep reading about the lack of hotspot, which I really like on my other 3&400 Series lights. I was on the SL website this weekend and they're now referencing TLR in the description. Has there been more than one, 1000 lumen X300 WML?

    Thanks,
    Keith

    Have you tried a newer streamlight tlr1 HL? They extended the paddle switches so they extend a decent amount further back and are pretty easy to reach.
    Formerly givo08.

    Yes. I have always had to use a remote switch because of short fingers - or use my support hand.

    Gen 4 21 has the standard Glock rail. Swapped the adapter plate and the light will not engage with the (P) plate. Again, I think this is a gun specific issue because I have had a the same loose fit issue with every generation of X300(A). Will get a (B) model eventually now. Daggum it.

    Played around in the dark with the 1,000 and 600 lumen models again last night. I was incorrect when I said the hotspot on the 1,000 lumen model was not as defined. It is just much larger than the 600 Lumen version and way more intense and the spill around the hotspot is also more intense due to the shear output of the light. Very impressed overall. Will continue playing around with it.
