Default Pressure switch for tac light

Looking for a really good coil cord pressure switch for Sure Fire 6P or G2 on a Remington 870.

TacStar shows up all over the place as well as others that look like TacStar. But I keep seeing reviews that they over heat and don't work well.

Any ideas?

Surefire makes one, as does Streamlight.

I have run a Streamlight unit on my Stag M4gery for almost 3 years now, no problems.

Thanks GlockD. I was looking for a curly cord to fit Sure Fire 6P, G2 & the like. I think I'll go with the Tac Star, I checked my files and the one I've been using for a long time on another gun is the Tac Star so it should be ok.

But, I have a friend who might well be interested in the Streamlight curly cord which fits the Streamlight TRL. We were talking about the TRL today and didn't know there was a pressure switch for it.

I run a Surefire tail on my M3 for my service rifle. For something you may be relying on for tactical use, I'd buy name brand.
