Kinetic Concealment LC-1Green Laser LED Combo

KC   Green Laser LED Combo

Not long ago I wrote a review of the first non-holster product Kinetic Concealment introduced to the market. This was the KC green laser. At the time I mentioned KC would be introducing an LED white light and green laser combination. The LC-1 has just been introduced.

The LC-1 mounted on my S&W M&P Pro.

The LC-1 has the same green laser as the previous laser only model but now includes a 200 lumen LED light. As seen in the photos the controls are two ambidextrous buttons mounted on the wings at the top of the rail mount. The front button controls the white light with on,strobe and off functions. The rear button controls the laser which has the same on, strobe and off functions. Since both buttons are close together the user can press both buttons at once with one finger and activate both the LED and laser at the same time. Of course you can activate them separately depending on needs of the situation.A plug in pressure switch is also included. The unit runs on two C-123 batteries.

From Kinetic Concealment:

LC-01 comes standard with a 200 lumens LED flashlight with high, low and strobe settings, as well as a high-powered green dot laser that can be used with or without the flashlight feature. Both the flashlight and the laser can be operated using the ambi-push button on and off switch from the wing-ends of the LC-01. The green dot laser can also be operated using the optional pressure switch that is included. The LC-01 operates using two CR123 batteries (included) and has a quick release push button back plate for easy battery exchange. The LC-01 weight 5.32 ounces.

The LC-1 is water resistant and constructed of anodized aluminum. The LC-1 is held in place on the guns rail by one screw that can be tightened by hand or with a coin or screwdriver.

The MSRP is $85.95 which is a very good price for a combo light and laser made with an aluminum body. It’s just a good buy no matter what your budget.

    This is not a review, this is an ad wearing review-skin.

    A review (for firearms related stuff anyway) typically presents more information than what is in the advertising material. It typically includes the length of time you have owned it, how much physical abuse it has seen over that time, your opinion of how the features are implemented (do the button layouts work well, etc.). In this case since it is a laser/light combo you could include how long the battery lasts compared to the advertised battery usage time, how well the light/laser does against shock, etc.

    There was none of this here, and therefore I submit that this is not a review, but an advertisement posing as a review.

    • Ok I removed review if that helps. They don’t provide runtime. I didn’t beat it or toss it around. Not every product like this gets the torture treatment. Most users won’t be taking a product out and beat the crud out of it. If this was a military/police light it would get the torture treatment.
      As you can see from the photos the buttons are easy to reach with the support hand or trigger finger.

        This is a tough crowd to please… Most should see the difference between military grade and civilian toys, at least when looking at the price tag. Keep it up and never mind the haters…

  • avconsumer2

    Assuming that screw that came with the review unit has been used a gazillion times. Cause dayum. Rode hard & put up wet that thing.

    • Bill

      And on the “inside” side of a holstered pistol.

    • Michael Lubrecht

      Nice observation – either what you wrote or the screw is pretty soft metal, and either painted or pretty crappy surface finish to get gouged up so quickly with one or two installations.

      • avconsumer2

        Ugh… the soft metal screws…. worst things ever. Strip at the drop of a hat. May write to my congressman to get those damn things outlawed.

  • Bill

    It’s only a good deal if it’s a good product. There has to be limit on how low a price can go while still including quality components, design and manufacture. I won’t be thinking about what a good deal it was if my light bonks at 0300 while covering a suspect.

    A ‘review’ of a light and green laser with no pictures or video of the green laser… Hmmm. In that they only covered 50% of the product, I cant say this is really a review.

    “It’s just a good buy no matter what your budget.”

    My reply: how do you know this, if you haven’t conducted any tests?

    What I can say is that it looks like a cheap chinese made light that is pretty big; the 80’s called and they want their boat anchor light back. With that said, did the reviewer test the actual run time of the light? No mention of that. Also didn’t show the green laser and how it looks at say 10′, 20′, etc. Also no actual shooting with this light and laser to see if it holds up to recoil either. Also forgot to state the obvious that you will have to get a custom made holster if you want to carry this around.

    I agree with slim, this is an advertisement and not a review.

    Come on guys, you can do better than ‘cut & paste’.

  • Dougboffl

    Looks like sharp edges on the wings and other places.

  • hami

    Has the laser held zero after the weapon has been fired a bunch? Did the recoil loosen up the single screw attachment? How many rounds were fired with the unit attached, did anything stop working?

    Send it to me, I’ll find out, and I’ll write a review.

  • Zachary marrs

    This isn’t a review…

  • Cal S.

    Dang, guys, take it easy! “Review” is a pretty broad term. At least he didn’t use that term and then just conduct an ‘unboxing’ of the light. Good night, give the man some credit.

  • SLi-Fox

    I own two of these. My only complaint so far is the battery cover isn’t all that secure and it sure doesn’t have any water resistance what’s so ever. I wouldn’t use it outside especially being in the NW. I think their standalone green laser is nice however.

    • Nashvone

      So….how well does it hold up to a sweaty holster?

      • SLi-Fox

        I have it on a pistol with tape on the battery cover for inside home defense until I have funding to drop down on something more serious. I honestly don’t recommend buying this light/laser. When I’m able to replace it, I’ll put it on my nephews airsoft toy.

  • Sledgecrowbar

    This light looks suspiciously similar to the Chinese airsoft-grade light/green laser combos I’ve been looking at for years now. Ultimately, I never bite because I feel like I won’t be getting my money’s worth at the $65 they go for. Where is this one produced? Which LED does it use? I don’t necessarily mind if it’s Chinese-produced or anywhere else for that matter, but there are lights I pay X for and lights I pay Y for and I expect fair value in both cases. I’d like to see a full test on it either way because I’m interested in getting an opinion on this style of light, but I’d like answers to these questions, too.
