Steiner Releases Mk4 Battle Light

posted on February 23, 2017
Steiner announced the addition of a rail-mounted flashlight to its product lineup with the introduction of the Mk4 Battle Light, a weapon light with a number of unique features.

The Mk4 Battle Light provides 500 lumens of white-light illumination, along with an adjustable low-profile design. The light uses a slim Picatinny-rail attachment point that wraps around the light body, allowing the light to be installed tight to a rifle's rail. The attachment is secured through the use of a thumb screw.

This design works to virtually eliminate barrel shadow, giving users a clearer, unobscured view of their targets before engagement. The design also helps shooters engage the switch easily, ensuring smooth, trouble-free operation.

The light body is made from 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum, which features a mil-spec hardcoat anodized finish. The body measures 1 inch in diameter and features a length of 5.98 inches. The total weight of the unit is 4.9 ounces. The light runs off a white-light LED with a beam divergence of 10 degrees and a maximum range of 330 yards. The light is waterproof to a depth of 16.4 feet.

The Mk4 runs on two CR123 batteries or a single rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which is sold separately. The battery life measures anywhere from 1.25 to 1.75 hours, depending on usage.

The light features a pressure-sensitive pad on the tailcap of the unit that allows the user to depress slightly for momentary on operation or depress fully for constant-on. The Mk4 is also supplied with a remote cable pressure pad that allows users to operate the light from a comfortable point on a firearm's rail.

The Picatinny-rail adapter is fully ambidextrous and can be flipped using two screws in order to accommodate right- or left-handed shooters. The light also features a rotating tailcap that allows owners to orient the pressure-pad cable according to user preference.

The suggested retail price on the Steiner Mk4 Battle Light is $329.

BallistiClean 00 Buck Review

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
