New Nightstick Weapon Lights

Nightstick, a brand owned by Bayco Products, announced the company was now selling four new weapon lights for your defensive firearm. The models are the TWM-350, TWM-350S, TWM-850XL and TWM-850XLS. The names may not be catchy, but I suppose not everything can be called Avenger, Patriot or Skull Crusher.

Surefire Masterfire Holster with x300 Weaponlight – Review

The Surefire booth at SHOT 2017 had enough space to play a full team vs team street hockey game. And yet, surrounded by bullet proof lights, milspec silencers and well, more lights, it was strange that the one product that really caught my attention was a holster. For one, the Masterfire holster system is unique in that it engages the weapon light rather than the gun itself. Two, its open front design allows for the carrying of pistols with muzzle devices and suppressors. And to top it off, the Surefire Masterfire holster can be configured so that the weapon light switches on when the pistol is drawn.

Steiner MK7 Remington 870 Battlelight

Here’s another one for the “new to me” category. Steiner Optics has an illumination product specific to the shotgun platform. While researching weapon lights for a fun project, I stumbled across the MK7 Battlelight, a magazine tube endcap replacement that provides 350 lumens of forward throw light. The complete unit only adds four inches of overall length,

NEW Lucid C3 Weapon Light

Weapon lights have evolved in the past 10-15 years and obviously LEDs have been a big part of the transformation. Battery life, ruggedness, size and light output are at the top of the list for advantages over their incandescent kin. LUCID Optics has just joined the illumination game with the C3: a dual LED weapon light that pushes out 300 lumens.

4Sevens' New WS1 Pistol Light | SHOT 2017

4Sevens is starting to get into the weapon light market. They have been quietly making some great handheld lights for over the past 10 years. Their Quark series is rather popular as it is modular so you can choose different heads for different modes of light as well as different body lengths for your choice of batteries. I remember a few years ago when David unveiled his massive XM18 work light. It is discontinued now but it has 18 Cree XM-L leds and is powered by 28x RCR18650! It puts out 15,000 lumens for a solid hour or you can dim it down to 600 lumens to run for 24 hours.

450 Lumen Pistol Light – Olight Valkyrie PL-1 II

I was taught in a training class years ago that 60-80 lumens on a short range weapon light was more than adequate for defensive situations. Has that sentiment changed with advances in LED technology? A new pistol light, the  Valkyrie PL-1 II from Olight, projects 450 lumens, which leads me to believe that their is increased demand for high output lights on handguns.

POTD: SureFire X300 In Rogue One

Jiang Wen portrays Baze Malbus in the new Star Wars movie: Rogue One. A SureFire X300 was spotted on his prop weapon. It is just as bad as the ATI stock that was on Captain Phasma’s gun in Force Awakens. At least the SureFire X300 is small and you probably won’t notice it as much as an AR stock on a Stormtrooper Blaster.

POTD: Belgium Police High Cap Glock

Thanks to @HawkinsSecurity for bringing this photo to our attention. The officer behind the sign has a 33rd extended glock magazine in what looks to be a Glock 19 fitted with a Glock weapon light. I do not have any context as to why they are aiming so high nor why they are deployed. It may be the same officers that arrested the Paris massacre mastermind Salah Abdelsam by French and Belgian authorities.

[SHOT 2016] Adaptive Tactical Accessories

Adaptive Tactical had a number of interesting products available for SHOT 2016. The first one is a sort of replacement pump for the Mossberg and Remington pump action shotguns. It is a polymer wraparound pump that incorporates picatinny rails on the top and on the sides of the wraparound section, while including a rearward and a forward handstop while operating the pump action. It being a wraparound pump, it includes an empty space through which a shooter can still fully acquire the front bead, while having the ability to mount a light, or even an optic on top of it. It is called the Wraptor Forend, and retails for $49.99.
