Inforce releases Gen2 WML lights

    Inforce, a manufacturer of high quality picatinny mounted weapon lights has upgraded their WML line with their new Gen2 WML series of lights. The Gen2 has a redesigned body, along with the switch that operates the lights momentary on or constant on feature. Bear in mind these changes are to be implemented with four different systems the company has, the WML White, WMLx White, WML White/IR, WMLx White/IR. The “x” connotation is longer and takes up two 123A Lithium batteries than the non “x” version. Not included in this article but I’ve heard rumors of a variant of the WML with Keymod attachments instead of picatinny…

    As of now there is no mention of price for the Gen2s. From the report at Soldier Systems Daily

    The WML White and WML White/IR products offer many functional enhancements including:

     

    • Increased lumens from 200 to 400, at just 3 ounces
    • High efficiency emitter provides up to 1.5 hours of runtime in white mode, or 4 hours in infrared mode from a single 123A Lithium battery
    • Concentrated, high-intensity beam fills the field of view for close to mid-range target identification
    • Re-engineered cam lever and lockout bale with constant tension to maximize ease of switching between white or infrared mode (IR model only) and full function/momentary mode (white model only)

     

    The WMLx White and WMLx White/IR models offer many functional enhancements including:

     

    • Increased lumens from 500 to 800 (White version) and from 400 to 700 (IR version), at just 4 ounces
    • High efficiency emitter provides up to 2 hours of runtime in white mode, or 4 hours in infrared mode from two 123A Lithium battery
    • Concentrated spot and far-reaching, high-intensity beam provides significant light for situational awareness and long-distance target identification
    • Re-engineered cam lever and lockout bale with constant tension to maximize ease of switching between white or infrared mode (IR model only) and full function/momentary mode (white model only)

    I first encountered the Inforce light a while back, and thought it was the oddest looking picatinny mounted light I’d ever seen. I still think the handgun intended product only has Glocks weapon light beat in the ugly department. But then one day my buddy turned his on at night, and I didn’t care how ugly that thing was, the sheer amount of light coming from it pretty much matched a PEQ16’s white light. Since then I’ve purchased two of the non “x” models for my rifles, and am almost pushing myself to buy a third for cycling at night. The light itself is durable, lightweight, very small in rail estate, has an excellent hook that keeps the finger pad from being accidentally pressed.
