WEST HARTFORD, Conn., Jan. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Legendary firearms manufacturer Colt is excited to announce the release of its first line of integral-mount weapon lighting and handheld tactical lighting systems. The product line includes four tactical flashlights and four weapon-light systems, featuring up to 1200 lumens of high intensity power.
The new line of tactical and weapon lights are designed with the quality and performance Colt customers have come to expect from all of its product lines. "They are a new standard in portable mountable lighting," said Tan Woo, lead design engineer for Colt Lights. "Now Colt enthusiasts have an answer for their illumination needs – be it for hunting, training, or law enforcement and security duty. These robustly designed lights can withstand the rigors of daily use while providing superior visibility when environmental light is low to extremely dark."
The Colt weapon light models includes the slim, rail-hugging integral-mount Microtac® MS white light and Predator™ green models. All of the integral-mount models are built with high performance, low-profile bodies and reversible heads and tails for optimal on-rail customization. They are efficiently powered by AA or AAA battery power systems (depending on model) for up to 400 lumens of output. "We wanted to make sure that our mountable lights were recoil-resistant for nearly all hunting rifle calibers," said Woo. "And for flexibility, we designed them to mount on both Picatinny and Weaver rail systems, so sportsmen can easily use them with their existing equipment." The light mounting system supports multiple ambidextrous mounting options. Predator™ models ship with both white and green LEDs.
The four new handheld tactical lights offer the same professional grade quality as the weapon light series. Tactical lights include the 1200 lumen high-intensity PeaceMaker® which is powered by four CR123 cells, the 800 Lumen compact slim-line Judge® powered by two CR123 cells, and the AMRAM® Microtac® AM100 and AM200 Backup Series. "When something goes bump in the night, these handheld flashlights offer the kind of illumination you need to inspire confidence," says Woo.
Colt Lights will be available through Shop.Colt.Com and ColtLights.com.
