    Unity Tactical introduces their newest weapon-mounted light/laser switch, the AXON.

    Unity Tactical is one of the industry’s leading names when it comes to firearms accessories. Their optics mounts, helmet attachments, weaponlight/laser switches, and more tend to be some of the most popular products on the market in their respective sub-sectors. Two of their prior switch releases, the 45-degree angled Hot Button and the flat-mount ModButton have become go-to solutions for a plethora of shooters running weaponlights, lasers, or both. One configuration that has become common is to run the tandem pairing of a Hot Button in front of a ModButton, and it seems that Unity has caught on to this trend. They have recently announced a new switch that mimics this setup, but in an optimized double-button/single-housing unit. Meet the new Unity Tactical AXON.

    Unity Tactical @ TFB:

    The AXON is available in either black or FDE, with picatinny compatibility out of the box and an optional extra M-LOK kit for $14.00 MSRP.

    AXON ™

    $154.00$299.00

    The pinnacle of remote switch design for weapon-mounted accessories, AXON™ provides complete control of lights and lasers in a single, compact and rugged housing. AXON™ is the direct result of operational feedback from professional end-users on our industry-leading switch technology. Lights and lasers can be fired from individual buttons with versions available for popular issued devices. Standard AXON™ models feature each button firing devices independently. SYNC models fire the laser independently, while the light button will fire both light and laser simultaneously. NGAL variants operate in a SYNC capacity, but offer a visible override feature for light and laser. Standard configuration is 7” cable length.

    AXON™ mounts directly to M1913 Rail or M-LOK® (with optional AXON™ M-LOK® Mounting Kit), while the Rail Clamps feature pass-throughs for zip ties. Its unique design provides tactile differentiation between the two buttons to eliminate confusion in dark, cold and high-stress situations. The light (angled) button features a switch that allows for both momentary and constant activation, while the laser button features a momentary-only button that supports the laser’s double-click-for-constant-on feature.

    AXON™ M-LOK® Mounting Kit sold separately.

     

    This dual configuration should provide similar functionality to the pairing of two of Unity's prior single-switch units, the angled Hot Button and flat ModButton.

    The AXON variants listed on Unity’s website range in MSRP from $154, for the Standard/Non-Sync Surefire and Crane Laser options, up to $299 for options such as the SYNC-capable and NGAL-compatible versions. What do you think of these new switches, readers? Does this meet a need that the marketplace has clearly expressed, with its employment of separate Hot Button/ModButton setups? Or is this more like a solution in search of a problem? Do you have a use case for the AXON? Have you previously tried other Unity switches, or any of their other products, and what did you think of them? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below! See you at the range.
