[SHOT 2016] What’s new at Quantico Tactical

    5 light LZ kit w/steel stakes. Thos are individually wrapped batteries in the middle

    Swinging by Quantico Tactical (who are apparently big fans of TFB by the way, thanks guys!), I noticed what I thought a first were chem lights, a fairly common military item.  Upon closer inspection, it was a unique and versatile “modular light system” called Lazerbrite.  When I say versatile, I truly mean that these lights cover a ton of bases for civilian or military needs.  The inventor of the system was at the booth, and was kind enough to take the time to walk me through the systems functions.  Here a sampling of what it can achieve:

    • Emulate a chem light when paired with a glow tube
    • Function as a wide angled light
    • Separate into two lights
    • Chain together to create a light baton
    • Focused spotlight
    • Vehicle marker
    • Traffic control
    • LZ/DZ marker
    • Signal/morse code light using a very neat iris tube
    • Slow (as to not emulate small arms fire) or SOS strobe
    • Can attach/mount via helix loops, threaded endcap loops, micro-magnets, clip lanyard, steel or aluminum stakes
    • Can run for up to 150 hrs on one set of 2 CR2032s, batteries are included
    • Fully waterproof

    The lights come in a variety of kits for either civilian or military use.  Something I found the most interesting was their map kits that have a light window so your light is not seen by anybody but yourself.  The lights come in white, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and IR. They are American designed and the inventor took great pains to have them made with almost 100% American components in America.  Early Cuyler himself would be impressed.

    On another table, I saw a small, lightweight AR magazine carrier made by Limitless Gear that held the magazine very securely, yet still had a smooth draw.  Called the Opfor MC-R, it weighs only 2.3oz, and is stackable as well.

    Quantico Tactical also informed me that they are the sole US distributor of the FN expert system.  You can read my colleague Patrick R.’s article on that system here.

    Thanks to Quantico Tactical and Lazerbrite for their time!
