OK, so in the UK we can’t get access to pistols due to many political factors so the chances of this light (described by many as a ‘pistol light’) being used on anything other than airsoft ‘weapons’ is very slim.
However…..This is a very good light for a small calibre rifle as the beam it casts is very intense and easily throws out to the stated 260 metres. Perfect for a .22 rimfire or .17 HMR rimfire.

The laser is tiny but ridiculously powerful and I can easily see the green dot at around half a mile away on house walls on the other side of the my valley (yes, I have good eyesight).
ON/OFF is responsive and the option to have light, light and laser or just laser is a nice touch.
Even in daylight it is easy to see the laser.

Since the light is powered by 2 x CR123A rechargeable batteries which are 1600mAh each there is plenty of power there to ensure long running time and accessing them is very easy although the light does have to be detached from the rifle for that to be possible. As long as the light is reattached at the same point on the mount the laser will not lose zero.

Just for reference:
The mount I am using in the video is a UTG universal single picatinny rail barrel mount (very good):

The red lens cover is a 25.4mm cover:
I would recommend checking out (and buying) the Olight universal magnetic USB charger cable: as it is cheap and effective for charging up any batteries commonly used for flashlights of all types. It is usually cheapest on Amazon and is more convenient (and cheaper) than a traditional mains powered charger.

Zeroing the laser is very easy – it is just like lining up the reticle of a telescopic sight – one adjustment for elevation and one for windage. All I did is look through the scope and train the cross-hairs on a target approx. 35yds away (my normal shooting distance), adjust the laser to meet the middle of the cross-hairs and it was set. The process took about a minute.

This is another exceptional product from Olight and while it could be seen as more suited to use on a pistol (as that is how it is marketed) it is not to be overlooked for rifle use – especially for people who like to keep their gear small and compact.
For a .22 rifle or air rifle this is a great choice but for heavier calibres where targets will generally be more distant a more powerful light would be preferable.

I can’t comment on how good it would be for a pistol as I’m in the UK but for a .22 rifle or air rifle it is a great choice. Highly recommended.
