Valhalla Tactical’s Baldr System is a series of modular weapon light bodies and mounting plates with VERY broad compatibility across many of the current best weapon lights on the market.
They offer Baldr light bodies that can mate with Surefire M600 and M300 heads, Nitecore P10GT heads, and Streamlight HL-X heads. The light bodies accept either a single, protected 18350 in the case of heads that would normally be run on 6V (two cells) or a single CR123A for lights like the M300 that normally runs on a single CR123A. The advantage to these battery configurations is that the light bodies can be made extremely compact and be made to sit very near the rail while still using a battery capable of providing full output and usable runtime. All of the light bodies are designed to accept Surefire E-series/Scout series tailcaps.
There are a variety of mounts available based on the specific needs and any potential clearances that the end-user may need to accommodate. Each mount has built-in adjustability so the user can fine-tune the fit to their setup. Valhalla Tactical describes the mount options:
- Type-0: Puts the light body closest to your rail. In most cases you must place your light head in FRONT of the rail for it to clear. Good solution when rail space is limited and barrel protrudes reasonably ahead of your rail. Not optimal if muzzle is also at the end of rail – may cause interference especially with suppressor use.
- Type-1: Provides a ~10° tilt so that smaller LED heads (Surefire Scout, Nitecore P10, etc) can recess behind the end of rail. Good for ensuring unfeathered access for suppressor mounting / dismounting.
- Type-2: Same with Type-1 except provides ~15° tilt for slightly bigger LED heads such as Modlite.
- Type-4: Same with Type-1 except provides ~30° of tilt for more extreme configurations, for example recessing Streamlite HL-X heads or using Scouts with PEQ-15.
The Baldr System components are in production and available for preorder now.
