What do you gentleman recommend as a good laser sight for the PPQ? I am definitely in the market for one. Thanks in advance and I look forward to your responses.

Surefire, Streamlight and Viridian get the most talk around here.

I have a Crimson Trace for my M&P, but they don't make one for the PPQ or P99.

When I get the cash back into my gun budget, I'm going with Viridian.

kikidapoet,

Are you looking for a laser only or a laser / light combo?

I also make lasers for the PPQ as well. I will be posting pictures and listing it in the Vendors section as well. 3rd item down. The one shown is for a Taurus but it fits the PPQ perfectly.

I am looking at all options but I seem to be drawn to the laser light combo. I will be usin the weapon for home defense and concealed carry so I am still not sure. What are your thoughts?

Regards,

Keith

Redfish, any thoughts of making a light/laser combo?

It would be awesome to have an auto-laser with a manual light. Honestly, that would be my ideal solution.

I do make a led version. The led's are basicly used as navigational lights. description below. The led colors are red / blue / white. blue is the most popular, red next and white .




In simple terms, the reason for navigational lights is to be able to illuminate an area and have enough light to identify objects & people without having your pupil’s contract. They are designed to be used on a pistol with a handheld bright white light as backup. While using the blue or red led lights to move around in near to total darkness your pupils are in the dialated stage and are adjusted to the ambient light. If you should turn off the light for any reason as to hide and listen for signs of someone moving around your pupils are already at the night vision, (dialated) level. If you were using a bright white light to look around and you turned it off it will take a few seconds to a few minutes for your eyes to re-adjust to the surrounding darkness. By using a soft dim light to navigate around your are able to see in the dark & in event the navigational light is turned off you night vision will not impaired.
These are not new in the law enforcement field. Surefire has had them for years on the M900V vertical pistol grip for AR15 format. They are new in the pistol industry.
The small led’s are designed for CQC type scenarios, like moving around & clearing a house. Not for the longer distances of a large warehouse or outside. This is the reason for having a larger bright flashlight in your off-hand.
A standard bright light has approximately 100-170 lumens. When turned on to illuminate a subject you will have an instant blinding effect on that person. Depending on the intensity of the light, it will momentarily activate all light sensitive cells in the eye, making vision impaired or impossible to see for a few seconds to a few minutes until the eye restores itself to its normal state. In the same instant, you being behind the light, also will have diminishing vision due the same blinding effect, although in less amounts because you are not in the direct line of the intense beam.

Rothenfluh,

Do you use the C5L? Do you use your weapon for just home defense or concealed carry as well? Curious as to bulkiness, and holster that might work well with it.

Also. Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Meine Grossmutter war Deutsche?

mit freundlichen Gruesse,

Keith

I typically COnceal Carry in a Theis IWB without the C5L, however I also have a Kaluban Cloak OWB holster that fits the PPQ and C5L if for some reason I feel the need. This does make it more bulky so is more for winter time apparel.

The C5L is (for now) predominantly for home defense? You can see my reviews of the C5L and the X5L gen 2 in the stickied Weapon Light thread.
