Introduced at SHOT Show 2017, Lucid Optics announced the launch of its C3 Weapon Light, designed to allow shooters to light up dark areas with a simple rail-mounted unit.

The C3 Weapon Light is built with a matte-black 6061 aluminum housing and is designed to be waterproof and shockproof. The light is IPX8 waterproof-rated and has been tested to withstand continuous recoil from a .458 SOCOM rifle.

The light produces a 300-lumen LED beam that reaches out to a distance of 70 feet. The total length of the unit is 2.75 inches, while the Picatinny-rail mount measures just 1.5 inches of mounting surface. The light weighs 2.25 ounces.

The light operates with a simple on/off pressure switch that allows for hands-free operation. The C3 also features a strobe function that is actuated by simply holding the pressure switch down. The light runs off three AAA batteries, allowing for a total run time of a little more than 3 hours of continuous use.

The suggested retail price on the new Lucid Optics C3 Weapon Light is $129.
