First Look: Axeon Optics MPL1 Pistol Light

posted on April 4, 2021

Axeon Optics, a brand known for innovative shooting and outdoor optic products, has launched the new MPL1 pistol light with ergonomic rear switches featuring three light modes. The exceptionally lightweight and compact new light delivers 300 lumens ideal for self-defense handguns.

Designed to maximize threat identification, the Axeon MPL1 ultra-compact and lightweight pistol light is a slender option for a powerful flashlight mounted on your accessory rail equipped handgun. The MPL1 universally fits most popular handgun models and features a master on/off switch just below the rail that is used to prevent accidental power to the light.

With the master switch engaged, the shooter can ambidextrously activate the dual instant on/off buttons located on the rear of the rail-mounted light assembly. The same buttons, when the MPL1 is mounted, are located just forward of the trigger guard and are used to conveniently switch modes from constant-on, to fast-flash, or momentary flash. The MPL1 is powered by a single front accessible AAA battery and produces 300 lumens for a constant run time of 30 minutes ideal for home-, self-defense, and concealed carry handgun applications.

The Axeon MPL1 packs vital target identification and illumination capabilities into the smallest pistol light housing available for under muzzle mounting applications. Like other leading Axeon products, technology meets affordability in the MPL1 at a very friendly MSRP of $44.99.
