    Glock 23c Rail

    I have a Glock 23c Gen 3 and I am trying to figure out what laser light combo will fit. Looking for the green laser/light combo that doesn’t stick so far out. Any and all help is appreciated. Also with the rail is it a good idea to get a picatinny rail attachment for the Glock 23c?

    Streamlight TLR8 is the only laser/light I know of that will fit. Iím sure there are others. Itís tough to get both laser and light is that short a space.

    If your willing to let the light extend slightly then you can increase the brightness and battery. Like the olight Balder is more than double the brightness of the TLR8 but itíll extend past the end of the slide a bit.

    You donít need to add another rail, the lights will mount better directly on the Glock rail.

    Thanks, I’ll look into that Olight Baldr and check out its dimensions and length

    Here are a couple examples. The top is a 19 w/TLR-1HL which is close in size to the Olight with laser.

    The bottom is the Olight PL-Mini (no laser) but a good size for that frame.

    That Olight looks great and what I am looking for. I just checked out that on their page and you can’t beat that price.

    Itís an awesome light (bright, lightweight, easy on/off attachment and easy to use). but not as many holsters fit it. So if you want to use it on a carry gun you may want to find a holster first.

    Mine is on a bedside gun and I use a holster Olight ran as a special awhile back. Not a holster I would conceal carry. There are companies that make holsters that fit and itís possible holsters for other lights will work, but I havenít researched recently.

    I purchased a cheap one online a few years back. Also have one for without the laser light combo. Also looked at the Werkz holster which looks pretty good for $50
