Streamlight just introduced two new rail mounted lights that appear to be intended as competition for the Surefire Scout series of lights. The ProTac Rail Mount 1 and ProTac Rail Mount 2 are single cell and double cell (respectively), rail mountable version of Streamlight’s popular ProTac lights. Both lights feature integrated rail mounts, anodized aluminum construction, a tempered glass lens, and tape switch or push button tail cap compatibility. Both lights are also user programmable with a choice of three operating modes: high/strobe, high only, and low/high.
The ProTac Rail Mount 2 boasts 625 lumen output for 2 hours. The ProTac Rail Mount 1 can be run off of a AA battery or a CR123A and, because of the differences in voltage, it has a different output level depending on the battery type. It boasts 150 lumens for 1.5 hours with an alkaline AA (4.5 hours on a lithium AA battery) or 350 lumens for 1.75 hours with a CR123A.
