The M series lights are on their way out, being replaced immediately by the TLR series.
The M3X is tougher than the "M3, having a "shock supression system", as well as being water and airtight and submersible to 66 feet for two hours. The M series lights require installation from the front to the back, often putting your hand in front of the muzzle of your gun. The lamp and bezel is not warranteed in the M series. The M3X requires a "long gun backplate" to mount a pressure switch, as well as the switch. Both are expensive.
Like you said, the TRL series has a lifetime warranty, and mounts by clipping on from underneath, with your hand clear from the muzzle.
