Colt announced 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 weaponlight systems, featuring up to 1200 lumens of illumination.

“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 weaponlight models includes the rail-hugging integral-mount Microtac MS white light and Predator green models. All of the integral-mount models are built with low-profile bodies and reversible heads and tails for on-rail customization. They are 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,” Woo said. “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 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.

Colt Lights will be available through ColtLights.com. Suggested retail prices for tactical lights start at $59.50 and run up to $259.50.

When it comes to a self-defense situation, most shooters think “Well, I’ll just shoot him!” Others may consider their personal “go-to” move to be a martial arts technique such as a finger strike to the eyes, bare-knuckle punch to the throat or kick to the groin.
