1. A light mountable on a mounting rail of an object comprising:

  • a light body having a mounting surface for an illumination light source and having a cavity for receiving one or more batteries therein;

    a mounting arrangement on said light body wherein said light is mountable on the mounting rail of the object;

    an illumination light source disposed in said light body for selectively providing illumination in a given direction, wherein said illumination light source includes a light emitting diode having a base disposed against the mounting surface of said light body to remove heat from said illumination light source to said light body;

    a housing removably attached to a side of said light body, said housing defining a cavity between said housing and the side of said light body, wherein an aiming light source is removably mountable therein to provide aiming light in the given direction;

    a connector removably attaching said housing to the side of said light body;

    an electrical switch for selectively actuating said light source, the removable aiming light source, or both; and

    an electrical circuit structure disposed in said light body and having terminals for receiving electrical potential from a battery when the one or more batteries are provided in the cavity of said light body, wherein said electrical circuit structure provides electrical connections among said illumination light source, the removable aiming light source, said electrical switch, and the terminals,wherein said electrical switch selectively connects said illumination light source to the terminals via said electrical circuit structure and selectively connects removable aiming source to the terminals via said electrical circuit structure.
