Touted as the world’s first AA-battery-powered Tactical light, I will vouch it is one powerful little torch at 150 lumens of white light. Also available is a model incorporating a laser. Models are made for both pistols and long guns. The long-gun version is supplied with a pad and remote cable switch for easy and rapid access. The unit is also capable of strobe. The strobe starts by pushing the backplate switch up, then pressing it down rapidly twice and holding it down. The light returns to normal when the switch is released.
The light is relatively small, and batteries can be found anywhere. The mounting system has a quick-release rail grabber and interchangeable recoil lugs for direct attachment to a variety of rail systems. The unit comes packaged in a sturdy box with foam inserts.
I mounted mine on a lightweight 6.8 SPC AR. When activated, it lights up the whole neighborhood. It’s a winner.
