The best airsoft gun mountable light on the market
on 1 August 2013
Simply put, I purchased this light before heading off to a 250,000 square foot indoor airsoft arena. Attached to an airsoft pistol (if you're not an airsofter don't worry - it's a safe and enjoyable hobby that involves mostly grown men running around shooting at each other) it gave me an amazing cone of clear white light that was easily brighter than anyone else on site that evening.
Even those carrying flashlights costing ten times as much where put firmly in the shadow by this light. Shining the light at the ceiling makes for an improvised room light. Shining it at people is like bringing the sun indoors.
There is a button on the flashlight to push for for on/off. It works momentarily also, if pushed half way it can be flashed repeatedly on and off at will or set solid on or off. There is also a selector switch on the other side to switch modes between; always off (even if button pressed - ideal for packing it away and preventing battery drain), always on (when button pressed), laser only (did I mention it has a laser sight too?), flashlight and laser simultaneously. The flashlight and laser combination mode is dimmer for both the laser dot and the flashlight as the power has to be split between them. It looks similar to the pattern from a police taser - a bright circle of light with a red dot in the middle.
If all this wasn't enough it even comes with a pressurised switch pad which can be mounted with tape anywhere you choose. I don't use this as I found pressing the button (with my trigger finger through the trigger guard) was easy enough.
I hate to recommend this item as it means next time I go airsofting at night or indoors I'll probably come across someone else with one and my advantage will have gone! :) Highly recommended.
