Laser/Light for PC Carbine

Looking for suggestions for a laser/light combo for the PC Carbine.

I'm a long time (40+ years) large caliber handgun guy, and bought the PC 9 strictly for fun at the range. After 600 rounds (no problems so far) I realized that the carbine would be good for home defense at my residence if I had a late night intruder and was forced to barricade in my bedroom. I can fire it more quickly and accurately at 7 to 10 yards than my handguns, and it has a larger capacity.

I have never owned a mounted laser or light for any of my handguns and am not sure what units to consider. I did see a very favorable review of a Streamlight TLR-2 HLG mounted on a PC 9. That unit also gets excellent reviews on Amazon, apparently will fit on the PC 9's small under barrel rail, but costs around $300. Is there is any other less expensive unit that is as good? Any suggestions?

Before I bought my PC9, I set up one of my AR's with a stream light and a red dot scope (2 moa) worked out quite well, should work out as well on a PC9, The stream light with mount and pressure switch was sub $50, The nikon red dot was spendy but a tasco pro point would have worked just as well for a whole lot less money.

I put my Olight PL mini 2 on mine and it worked just fine.

Streamlight makes a good product in my experiences. I have a number of TLR1s and an M3 from back in the day that still works.

Viridian X5L is an option for a combo laser/light along with the Streamlight offerings of the TLR2 and the TRL-8.

The TLR-8 is pretty reasonable at $162 on amazon.

Laser/Light for PC Carbine

I am running a tlr-1 streamlight on mine with the sw99 plate for mounting. I bought a used tlr-2 with laser but can't seem to adjust the laser so it's on my hd shotgun.

Anyone know if the new OLIGHT Baldr Pro will fit on the 3-slot bottom rail with enough room to clear the sling attachment?

I used a TLR-4 with the red laser. It was about $105... works good. Doesn't look as sleek at the others.

If you're not looking to spend a whole lot but still get a good light with laser this is alright.
Just checked on amazon and the price went up about $20.

Did it fit right out of the box or did it require changing keys?

Looks like these lights would interfere with the sling. Is there a low profile light that doesn't?

Looks very good but no laser. Do you use it with a sling?
I like the high lumen output.
A high/low beam switch would be nice..Even 300 lumens is bright!
