Stik N Shoot Magnet Flashlight

SticknShoot

So you have a long gun, and it doesn’t have any sort of rail to mount accessories — in particular a flashlight. Perhaps this product will fit your needs. The Stik N Shoot is a 200 lumen green flashlight that has zinc coated neodymium rare earth magnets to secure it onto a barrel.

With regards to whether the Stik N Shoot will stay on, especially with larger calibers, Stik N Shoot creator Wes Adamson noted “I have shot this product off 300 win mags, 338’s, a 4-10 elephant gun, shotguns with 3 1/2 double OO shells, 50 caliber CVA muzzleloader, with 175 grains of powder and an AR-10 completing a full 30 round mag. We had the Texas National Guard conduct field trials using our product and they ran 200 rounds at 8 round vole’s and even with the heat of the barrel it rode like a champ.”

The magnets are 3″ in length and form 108 pounds of magnetic pressure to help counteract the recoil and keep your mount and flashlight on your gun. There are other magnetic rail mounts on the market, but what stands about Stik N Shoot is how powerful these magnets are compared to their competition. The units weighs 14.8 ounces, and the company plans on releasing a lighter version in the future. The unit runs on 3 AAA batteries which will give the user 4 hours of continuous use. The light can project up to 150 yards in darkness. All models cost $199.95.

    Is there any kind of rubberised layer over the magnets? It doesn’t look like it, but I think if there was it would be a lot better. Firstly, it would grip the barrel better meaning it would shift less under recoil. Secondly, it would mean that if there was any kind of movement it wouldn’t risk damaging the finish on the barrel. I can imagine that there might be a heat issue, but it is just the matter of choosing the right material (like some sort of silicone rubber).

    A buddy had one and it popped off while he was taking his gun out of the closet = no thank you. That and his did mar the barrel.
