Smith & Wesson Expands Tactical Lights Lineup

Smith & Wesson continues to expand well beyond its well-known realm of handguns. Over the last few years, it’s been lending its name to a variety of endeavors including knives and flashlights. Now, Smith & Wesson seems to be getting a bit more serious into the weapons light game with the introduction of two new products, the Delta Force RM-10 and RM-20,

The new lights are aimed at the weapons market, versus Smith & Wesson’s primary EDC-type light offerings. The RM-10 and RM-20 are designed for and include a picatinny weapons mount. Further, the weapons also include a remote switch pad that features at least four settings: high, low, strobe, and momentary on. The lights have last-setting memory, so the user resumes right where they left off – handy to ensure modes are not switched accidentally.

The two lights feature the standard assortment of specs one might light to see. CREE XPL LEDs illuminate the unit powered by CR123 batteries. The RM-10 users 1 and the RM-20, two batteries. Runtimes vary from over an hour to almost 12 hours depending on the light and settings.

Retail pricing is aggressive. The RM-20 is only $94.99 and the RM-10, $74.99, which can be purchased from SWGear.com or through Smith & Wesson’s dealer and distributor network.

    They need to start having at least a 500 meter beam there are off the shelf flashlights that will fit in a scope mount that are brighter and most shooters arent clearing rooms in the city. you can get all different flavors of lights some even have lasers built in. Why not learn to adjust you eyes to dark if your not staring at a bright ass big screen TV, a phone screen, or computer screen don’t keep bright lights on in your house you’d be better equipped to adjust to dark and not give away your position or have extra weight on the end of your rifle or extra expense of a consumable product both light and battery

      have you fired a rifle with any kind of muzzle report in the dark? your night vision gets killed pretty quick once any kind of shooting starts

    With mount AND switch- these are incredibly inexpensive. Beyond aggressive pricing. Now, some testing on reliability, specifically when it comes to recoil, trauma and water, are necessary to determine if these are worth the squeeze.

    • Yeah, these could be interesting competition to the Streamlight rail mount lights.

  • Mr. Katt

    They couldn’t even made the two cell for 18650 batteries ?? How cheesy is that ?

    • Flounder

      What are you talking about? You can always stick an 18650 cell in a 2 cr123 battery flashlight. Although performance is reduced somewhat. And runtime generally increases.

    they kinda look like ncstar lights, but with S&W M&P stickers…

  • ToddB

    So more Chinese made products with S&W stamped on them.
