An AK Overload Of Lumens

IMG_8872

Legion USA imports and sells various accessories for AKs, Veprs, Saigas, etc. I was perusing what they have and found this ridiculous weapon light that looks more at home on an off road vehicle.

The Kaspiy has four LEDs and a built in laser. The top corners have 45 degree offset rails to add more accessories.

According to the info, the light produces 1,400 lumens. This seems a bit low for what it could be. If they used XML LEDs then each one could produce 1,000 lumens, making this a 4,000 lumen light. Legion claims it can light up 600 meters, which I highly doubt given how small the reflectors are. You need larger reflectors to throw light down range.

  • Anomanom

    Get a couple of those and replace the headlights on your car.

  • iksnilol

    I want a ridicilously strong floodlight on my rifle… y’know; BLIND THE CAPITALST PIGDOGS! BURN THEIR RETINAS!

    • SP mclaughlin

      It would not be fun to look at this through NODS.

    • jonp

      I need one to melt all of the snowflakes rioting because they didn’t get their way in the election

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Theyll hang 97 lbs of lights but they gotta shave ounces on the fore grip?

  • Indiana Finney

    Man, two twin-linked Lasannons!

    • Pseudo

      Looks more like a guardsman’s flashlight, to me. That’s what they put inside one Lasgun…

  • Sunshine_Shooter

    Bill Blowers senses a disturbance in the force.

    • Nate

      Lol. Now P&S only has ‘some’ of the lumens with the 300U and P3X. Must get more lumenz!

  • Richard

    Does it have a strobe light feature? Because if it does, Dugan would be proud.

    • iksnilol

      put different color lenses on each, disco rifle!

      • mbrd

        that, with programable strobe and chase features, a rotating housing, and multi beam, multi color, lasers… disco club! (there’s a lame ak joke trapped in there).

  • HammaHamma

    You should attach more lights onto the canted rails.

    • Richard

      If possible, one on each side.

      • Major Tom

        A quad-light on each side. A total of at least 12 lights. Gotta be brighter than the Sun ya know!

        • POsP-Eye

          “Lumens: ∞ “

    • noob

      rails on all four corners – with double sided rail adaptors = gun with unlimited lights tiled together attached by a rail at the top.

  • Dr. Longfellow Buchenrad

    It doubles as a bipod…

  • A bearded being from beyond ti

    Is that a flower attached to the red dot?

    • Uniform223

      It’s a piece of camo-tape…

      • A bearded being from beyond ti

        A flower seems nicer.

        • DanGoodShot

          It IS a flower…. ?

          • Marco Antonio Gonzalez

            Nop, it is a symbol fo PEACE
            Like in R.I.P.

      • DanGoodShot

        Look again. It is a flower. Its all 1 big wtf over.

        • Uniform223

          I know. I was just being sarcastic

    • Wow!

      The dead flower’s severed body with it’s reproductive organs hanging out represents “We’re not just going to shoot the bastards, we’re going to rip out their living goddamned guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks.”

  • Nashvone

    Hanging that much weight off the front end should be a good way to reduce muzzle climb.

  • noob

    hmm. If a home invader looked up and saw nothing but blinding white light, and you can see nothing but blinding white light, it sounds like the situation could quickly go out of control.

    if it has a reduced setting dim enough that you can see where you are going and so that the bad guy can see that the light is attached to the gun that might help. and then you can crank it up to max as a kind of force escalation.

    • iksnilol

      Wear sunglasses. Problem solved.

      • mbrd

        forget sunglasses… disco light is only way to go! confuse intruder, and force intruder to dance to rail mounted boombox with cassette player!

        • iksnilol

          I like your style, comrade 🙂

  • Billy Jack

    Is Chechen bathroom gun. Back of rifle has vodka barrel.

    • mbrd

      must balance weight of light, comrade!

      as rail mounted, petrol fueled generator to operate light is drained, vodka barrel is drained to maintain balance.

      da! badmotherf***er!

      • Billy Jack

        Russian design clearly superior to kapitalist woman rifle.

  • DanGoodShot

    This is too funny. I was just on that website the day before and came across the same thing. The 1st thing through my head was WTF!

  • Gary Kirk

    Isn’t that the thing they hooked to the helicopter in independence day..

  • UCSPanther

    Any more lights and it is gonna need the “car battery in a backpack” power supply of M3 carbine fame…

  • 3==>~Sharia

    Does it take a 6V battery hah

    • mbrd

      it’s got room for one…

  • POsP-Eye

    Because Russia needs vampire hunters too.

  • ckeltz3

    I mounted one on my FNS-9 Compact……it’s AWESOME!!!

  • cruzo1981

    But does it strobe? Otherwise it’s not tactical enough. Pssshhht.

    • mbrd

      exactly, one can hardly tactically operate operationally if this thing does not have a tactical strobe operation. nyet komrade!

  • jonp

    ok but now where in the heck am I going to hang my grenade launcher and bayonet?
