When reflecting back on my time at Shot Show this year, there were a few big reveals but for the most part it was mainly smaller quality of life innovations at the show this year. One of the more interesting smaller pieces of the show was the collaboration between Modlite and Unity Tactical. Modlite and Unity Tactical came out with one of the first offset light mounts with an integral pressure switch built into the mount. This creates a single contained system that streamlines the overall mounting system.
Probably the most impressive part of this mount is the overall construction and weight. The total weight of this mount alone is 2.8 ounces and offers structural rigidity while staying lightweight. The Unity Tactical mount will use a new tape switch from Modlite that is more efficient and lets the user use all of the lumens instead of losing a certain percentage through the tape switch. The Unity Tactical lightweight mount will be compatible with Surefire Scout bodies as well as the end caps.
This opens up the ability for Surefire Users to order the mount and end cap to convert their SureFire Scout lights so it works with the Modlite system. The ModButton light system will be able to work on either the right or left side depending on your personal preferences. It also has the ability to clear IR lasers and other equipment with the Unity Fusion extension kit. I think its a nice touch that Modlite made the ModButton waterproof up to 1 meter and upgraded the electrical systems. Price hasn’t been announced yet but the ModButton will start shipping in March of 2020. Let me know what you think of the Unity Tactical ModButton in the comments below.
