HSP Inforce WMLX 400/800

Haley Strategic Partners’ new version of the Inforce WMLX allows the user to choose between two outputs, 400 and 800 lumens, at the flip of a switch. The momentary only pressure pad activation switch ensures that you always get the bright, white light you need instead of having to cycle through various modes.

CDM Gear BC47 AK Light Mounts – Now Available

The CDM Gear BC47 AK Light Mounts, that we recently gave you a sneak peek about, are now available.

These light mounts clamp to the barrel and provide a flashlight ring for for use with a 1″ diameter light. Their anti-rotation design ensures that they can not spin on the barrel and they have a hole to accommodate the cleaning rod.

There are two models available. The BC47-1 positions the light below the bore axis which may be more comfortable for those using a vertical grip. The BC47-2 places the light above the bore axis which may be more comfortable for those without a vertical grip.

Check out the BC47 Light Mounts at CDM Gear.

Surefire G2X Saves the Day

This story was carried on my local news yesterday. If you aren’t carrying a flashlight daily, this might convince you. You never know how or when you’ll need your flashlight…

Early yesterday, a Washington man had a road wash out underneath his vehicle due to the flooding in the area. He was able to use his flashlight, a Surefire G2X, as he extricated himself from his vehicle and climbed back up onto the roadway in the dark. Once he was on the roadway, he was able to use the light to warn other drivers about the now dangerously washed out road surface. His simple act of preparedness, carrying a light, may have played a role in saving his life and potentially the lives of other motorists.

INTRODUCING THE MINI MARK II
Seven years ago, FOURSEVENS revolutionized the EDC (Every-Day-Carry) world with the MINI 123 flashlight. Now we are preparing to deliver the smallest, brightest, most feature packed CR123A MINI ever.

Aerospace grade electronics inside helped us make the smallest EDC light ever. And the new features don’t just stop with the inside of the light.

The Mini Mark II includes a 2-way pocket clip, detachable key ring option, and multi-configurable modes so you can customize your MINI specifically to your needs.

We’ll be releasing more specific info closer to release date, so keep an eye on your inbox for how to order the MINI Mark II.

New from Elzetta: The Affordable Bones Flashlight

Elzetta is now offering a new bare bones flashlight, appropriately called the Bones Flashlight, that offers Elzetta performance at a lower price. The light retains Elzetta’s potted electronics (which is a large part of why their lights are so durable) and their balanced beam profile. However, the body of the light has been simplified and there are no customization options, allowing Elzetta to sell the Bones light at a lower price than their other offerings.

TangoDown Light Portal Front Sight (FFA-02)

TangoDown’s FFA-01 Front Sight Flashlight Adapter, released in 2012, was one of the first attempts at integrating a front sight and 12 o’clock mounted weapon light. The FFA-01 was essentially a specially designed front sight tower that could mount to an extended rail and encompass the bezel of the Surefire X300. It worked well and represented an evolutionary step forward for 12 o’clock mounted weapon lights.

TangoDown is reviving the idea, albeit in a slimmed down format, with the introduction of the Light Portal Front Sight (FFA-02) for the Surefire XC-1. The original FFA-01 was made from steel but the new FFA-02 is machined from aluminum (hard anodized finish). The combination of aluminum construction and the svelte XC-1 should make for a compact, lightweight set up.

From TangoDown:

TangoDown is excited to announce a new item for the tactical community! The Light Portal Front Sight (FFA-02) is a combination weapon light mount & front sight all in one compact package. The FFA-02 was developed to give shooters the ability to place a weapon light on the 12:00 rail without obstructing the front sight. This weapon light mount accommodates the SureFire™ XC-1 Pistol Light, creating a lightweight option if you’re looking to reduce the weight on your carbine. Maintaining a hand forward shooting position makes activating the XC-1 weapon light easy and quick.

**Limited Availability

MSRP: $95.00
