    Howdy everyone. I'm looking for advice on buying a varmint light to mount to my MVP Predator. I've heard good things about the Streamlight TLR-1 Game Spotter. Any suggestions on this or a comparable light and a good mounting set up? I will be going after coyotes and hogs. I have a Weaver K6 6x38 scope.

    Hi. Old thread, but I'll give it a try. Don't have a light on the MVP, but I have UTG ELP116R pistol light mounted on a rail attached to one of our .22cal rifles. Inexpensive, small, light, simple, durable, made completely out of metal, and super bright. Equal to our Surefire E2L flashlight, with no funky modes (flashing, dim, etc). When assisted by the .22's 3x9-32 scope, able to see skunks-sized critters out to the 200yds that we have available to us

    my stepfather has a few of the Wicked lights* brand lights one of which he has mounted on a 223 remmy 700. he likes it a lot better than his older style primos varmint light that he used for a while.

    That is exactly what I have been looking for. It is almost always right at dark by the time I can get those sneaky dogs called in. This would work.

    I had good luck with my IProtec 02 light. It's 300 lumens, hi/med/low; comes with optional pressure switch and universal mount. It's good to 120yds for sure....gotten two hogs and a feral cat so far, spotted two fox with it.

    I wait till I hear the corn crunching at 75 yards, point it up, turn it in, slowly lower light down; last pig ate under the light for 2 mins before I shot.

    This endless taunting simply must stop or we're all coming over to your place.

    Good meat pig there. Looks like you boiled the boiler room. Well done.

    I've got the TLR-1HP which is the same as the Game Spotter but in white instead of green LED. Great light. The bezel is quite large but you need that to get the focused beam to get the light down range far enough. The beam goes 400+ yards easy (measured across a large field) and at close range the beam is focused enough to burn out anyone's retinas and can be used an aiming point under 25 yards no problem. I like it a lot. Only downside is the bezel size it can get hung up on stuff but it's not a huge deal. It's also fairly light which is a big deal to me. 5.3 ozs without the tape switch which I don't run so just over a quarter lb.
