Manta Navigation Light – Quick Peak

    Manta, known for their gel-like temperature resistant rail & suppressor covers is bringing its navigation light around Modern Day Marine. Soldier Systems has photos, but in short, its a low-profile fully configurable LED light that fits into a rail cover. At only 1/4″ thick and 6″ long, you get options to adjust the output.


    The light features a smart-strobe feature that randomly emits light versus consistent flash patterns. Manta claims that this inhibits an assailant from guessing distance to a target. Manta plans to release IR and laser versions in the future.


    I have gone hands-on with the prototype and it absolutely works as intended. The low lumen count (100) is perfect for outdoor navigation or within the home in a defensive situation. I look forward to the production version, which I plan on swapping out over an InForce WMX.
