    Thought I'd start another thread with a reply I made......



    I only use the Lightforce lights. They are the best built ones out there.

    They have so many benefits over all other lights I have used. They have helped me win calling contests and place in the top 5, 3 other times.

    First, they are light weight and easy to handle. Push button on and off switch, which I like a lot. They have rotating reflector housing that turns to flood or spot to focus light or broaden it out. You can change bulbs from 30 W to 100 W.

    They have great accesories too. You can buy a battery pack for them with a dimmer switch, which allows getting away from the truck for calling, picking up the animal, etc. Next is the rifle mounting bracket for a scope and a mounting bracket for a shotgun too.

    I personally run the 170 Strikers and the Walkabout kit. I have 2 of the 170 lights one for handheld in truck or with battery pack and one on my AR15 223 for night follow up and recover. I have actually shot many coyotes walking out to pick up the downed one, turning one into a double !

    I believe in these so much, that I became a dealer for them this past fall. Let me know if you have any questions.....

    Well at least I know who I can send some people to:)

    Only problem have with mine at this point is the dimmer switch sometimes don't come on but Brian @ Lightforce told me to shoot air from a can into it. Lint gets in there and gums things up. So far it works like a champ.

    Nice product but unfortunately it is illegal to night hunt in Iowa.[​IMG]

    I know you can adapt it to, but it mounts to scopes currently. 1" and 30 mm.

    I know a guy that did do what you are asking, I'll pm him and see if he'd sell the setup like his...

    let ya know,
    Scott

    What is the effective range you have had with that light?

    check your state's hunting laws. Look for the term "shining", and take it from there. I do know that even if it's legal you best not get caught shining a light on a deer or anything with hoofs and have a firearm on you. In many states a laser is still legal, and I think all of them allow a lighted scope. I have no trouble shooting coyotes at twilight, or when there's a little snow on the ground
