Press Release: Lasermax’s Spartan AAA Pistol Light & Laser

Earlier this week, Lasermax has started shipping out their new Spartan laser light. It is a small pistol rail mounted light and laser that runs on a single AAA battery. The Spartan comes in either red laser or green laser. The LED is not a white led. It has a mint green tint to the light. The LED produces 120 lumens. According to Lasermax this is the most visible wavelength of light. The red laser Spartan retails for $175 while the green laser Spartan is $215. Check them out at I think the Spartan might be rather competitive against SureFire’s XC1 which is a single AAA weapon mounted light.

The Latest Installment in the Spartan Series

    Im I supposed to believe that green laser technology is still so cutting edge advanced that its worth $40 more?

    Im holding out for laser pricing equality.

      In defense of the greens, they are easier to see in sunlight..

        I only shoot people at night.
        Its too hot out.

      green lasers are built using DPSSL and so tend to be a fair bit more complex to manufacture *reliably*. I’ve had a fair number of cheap laser pointers and the green units are much more likely to stop working after a hard bump or drop because of how precise the design has to be to work.

      Red lasers, or IR lasers on the other hand can be made from a single diode and thus are amazingly cheap to produce.

    I’m done buying pistol lights till I can get a P320 frame with integral light.

    • Frank

      With LED technology getting better and better why would you want a fixed light that probably isn’t user replaceable?

      • nova3930

        Link caused my other comment to get held up. Check out the LIMA5 on the SIG Optics website. Whole point of the P320 is the frame IS easily user replaceable.


        The LIMA5 is a laser but there’s no reason you couldn’t put a light in the same place….

        • Stan Darsh

          That LIMA5 laser frame is very nice. SIG has stated they are supposedly working on a small led variant..

  • Frank

    So hey, 80 less lumens than the Surefire and a weird green tinted beam. But hey it’s cheaper right? I’d rather just spend the extra and get the surefire.

  • thedonn007

    I might have to get one of these. Any idea what the battery life is?

  • gunsandrockets

    Huh, might be perfect for my Glock 23C.

    • Tim

      Except the flex in the GLOCK dust cover (rail) will not accommodate the lazer holding its zero long term.

      IMHO their rail is for lights only.

      • Blake

        That’s not necessarily true. If you have a combo unit like this and torque it down to the point that the attachment points are digging into the polymer I don’t think it’s possible for that thing to move at all.

        • Tim

          The whole GLOCK rail section flexes upward during the fire cycle. It eventually warps.

          I’ve seen it called “GLOCK nose” or “pig nose”.

          My FKP serial numbered G23 suffered the frame splitting in this area due to this at around 5k rounds. (GLOCK graciously replaced the frame)

          The GTL21 had a wondering zero that I attributed to the flex.

    What I would like to know is how they got Gus Tarballs to pose for the publicity shot, and what he did with his cigar during the shoot.
