When I bought my truck, it already had an aftermarket HID kit installed.

He removed the assembly and told me the bulb was burnt out, but it seems no one in town stocks...

Has anyone put the compact TLR-4 on a XDM 9 or comparable full-size pistol? I know it's made for a sub-compact, but for the price, it would be hard to beat the TLR-4 for a laser/LED combo. I will yield the remainder of my time to the infinitely resourceful OB.
