If you're not looking for tons of bells and whistles and want a straightforward, easy-to-operate pistol light, the InForce APL might be just what you're looking for. This particular APL is the dedicated Glock model, but InForce offers the light in a nearly identical universal configuration. The APL doesn't have special features like a laser, a quick-detach mount, or even a strobe function. However, it makes up for these with outstanding ergonomics, a wide and even beam, and a ruggedly simple design. The ambidextrous paddles are large and easy to operate — press and hold for momentary-on, press and release for constant-on. Of all the lights we tested, we'd give this one the top rating for ergonomics. The lightweight polymer body is waterproof, and battery swaps are performed by unscrewing the bezel, rather than removing the light from the pistol. This light is our favorite.

Pros: Excellent ambidextrous switch design, Rugged construction is waterproof to 66 feet

Cons: No fancy bells and whistles, like a Q.D. mount
