A little help (OK a lot) host/optic ?

So I’ve been looking for a lightand after a few suggestions I’ve ordered a basic red led to cover it for now, but I suspect with chinese lumens it’s going to be underwhelming.

Orion m30c seems to be perfect for the task at hand. Except for one slight issue.. delivered it’s just shy of 3 times what I would like to spend.. $280aud could buy me a lot of other toys.
So anyone care to get frugal on it ?
What host ? Optics ? And who to have build it to get something similar ?
Or am I going to have to do some overtime ?

I have enough knowledge to be dangerous at whatever I do.
I ask obscure questions to become less dangerous not more.

Do you mean matching performance as a flashlight or specifically as a weapon mounted light? I have no experience with weapon mount, if so one of the hunters will hopefully chime in. The Maxtoch lights seem very popular in AU & NZ. Cheap would be a Convoy C8 with red xp-e2 LED and a basic driver, I think there’s an available remote switch. Mountain Electronics has an international site and can build anything you can ask for at a reasonable price.

Looking for a host and optics to match that style, weapon mountable with remote trigger.
Don’t need the same level of performance tho.

I already have 3x maxtoch lights and they are great. But this is for a bow not a rifle.

I’ve got smaller single and triple leds in red already. Wanting something bigger and floodier.

A 3×18650 quad would be good too.
But it MUST have remote trigger.

I got one for you. I had a chance to test this light and we mounted it on everything we could find and it worked like a champ. It is the Fenix TK25 R & B. Here is a URL that will take you right to it. https://goo.gl/5iYsZL

 

I requested a discount code for it just before posting this message. I have no idea when she will get back to me with the code.

 

Have a look at it, I wanted to keep it but I had already promised it to the person I had planned to gift it to.

It is a great light that can take a lot of punishment.

So had a c8 red version arrive today…Tight hotpot… essentially useless it’s so tiny.
Average to poor throw. On par with my flood tn12.
Don’t have a light meter to test but would not recommend to anyone.
