Surefire has done it again with a fantastic light - AND - a visible laser.
I purchased this light for my Gen4 Glock 21. It is very bright and the laser works well. I have yet to arrange a night shoot so that I can verify zero and test the unit under realistic conditions. I will do so in the near future.
I expect to run this gun/light combination in a drop-thigh holster. I was told by Blade Tech's people that they do not make a WRS holster for this gun/light combination. Safariland had a similar answer for me. However, I WAS able to find a holster maker who would handle this rig, and I suggest you check out High Speed Gear at http://www.highspeedgear.com. The product code is 60LH00HY, a "Drop Holster for Tactical Lights/Gear.
The holster is in shipment now, and I'll give it a good work-out when it arrives.

Got this as a gift. Wanted to find a basket weave style duty holster with retention and there is not one in existence or production. Have absolutely no idea what to do with this great product.

After purchasing the X400 light/laser combo, I found it to meet all expectations of the products capabilities. The light is VERY bright and outshines any of the similar products on the market. The laser is also more bright and is easily seen and acquired visually with the light on.
My one complaint is that no company is making a compatible duty holster for this product. I was informed by Surefire, that SafariLand is making one and was suppose to be out any time. However SafariLand told me that they do not have any plans as of yet to produce a compatible holster for this new generation of light. I've also checked with several other holster companies and so far, no company is making a holster to accept the new X400 series light.
I wish I had known this information before purchasing.

A high-performance LED generates 500 lumens of brilliant white light that is focused by a Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens to produce a tight beam with extended reach and significant surround light for peripheral vision. The X400 Ultra produces tactical-level light—enough to overwhelm an aggressor's dark-adapted vision—for 1.5 hours per set of batteries.
The X400 Ultra’s 5-milliwatt laser sight, located below the primary light, emits a high-visibility red (635 nM) beam. The laser's aiming adjustment mechanism uses Nylok® screws that won't back out from the effects of recoil, which means it rarely needs to be re-zeroed.
Activating the X400 Ultra is done via ambidextrous switching located at the rear of body, providing one-finger control — press the switch on either side for momentary-on activation, flip up or down for constant-on activation. A separate switch at the rear of the X400 Ultra allows you to (1) activate white light illumination only, (2) activate white light illumination simultaneously with the laser sight, (3) activate the laser sight only, or (4) disable the entire X400 Ultra. See illustration at upper left.
Optional DG grip switches (for pistols) and a pressure activated XT07 tape switch (for long guns) permit the X400 Ultra to be activated without altering your grip on your weapon.
The versatile X400 Ultra can be attached to a pistol or a long gun since its Rail-Lock® system permits rapid attachment/detachment from either Universal or Picatinny rails. Its high-strength aerospace aluminum body is Mil-Spec hard anodized for superior toughness and corrosion resistance and is O-ring and gasket sealed to keep out dust and moisture.
