Those seeking illumination now have one more option to consider. LaserMax, typically known for their lasers and rapid expansion into the weapon-light sector has announced the physical debut of their “Manta-Ray” series of weapon-lights. The Manta-Rays will be available for purchase at the NRA Annual Meeting show floor. As one would suspect with the name, the Manta-Ray is produced in partnership with Manta rails.
The Manta-Rays will be available for prospective customers to “touch and feel” after a soft-launch at the SHOT Show. LaserMax opted to release the concept after “overwhelmingly positive reception from media and shooting sports insiders.”
The Manta-Ray is a quick-detach picatinny rail-mounted light that is user adjustable for brightness with a “unique light signature” (not sure what that means). The Manta-Ray is powered from an on-board rechargeable battery.
For those wanting to be night-time tactical, an infrared version coined the “LMR-IR” will also be available (for those curious, the standard Manta-Ray is called the “LMR-M”. The Manta-Ray will be compatible with the LMS-RAS tape-switch, which interfaces via Mini-USB.
