Firefield announced a new flashlight that is specifically designed to be attached to a modern sporting rifle. The new light is called the Charge AR.
The Charge AR is a 180 lumen white light that affixes to your gun’s Picatinny rail system. It operates on a single CR23 battery and is said to provide up to 3.5 hours of light. The runtime isn’t listed with the full 180 lumens.
On the back of the Firefield light is a push button switch for direct activation. The unit also has an interface for plugging in a remote switch should you prefer that.
According to the company, this light is “shockproof” and can handle 800ɡ of recoil impulse. Its operating temperature is listed as 0˚ to 120˚ F. It is rated as IP55 for dust and water resistance. The body of the Charge AR is made of aluminum and it has a black anodized finish. This light weighs 2.2 ounces without a battery.
Firefield lists the suggested retail price on this unit as $35.99. This seems very inexpensive compared to brands that I have learned are reliable on long guns. I’d love to hear feedback on this flashlight should anyone purchase and use it.
