Wilcox Industries, manufacturer of tactical equipment, has upgraded the visible light head on their RAPTAR-Lite Eye Safe (ES) laser aiming/illumination device. The upgraded 300 Lumen SureFire illumination head provides increased capability and versatility for the operator, with seven selectable output-illumination levels.

The RAPTAR-Lite ES model accommodates military, Law Enforcement and the sportsman/outdoor communities. It offers a visible red aiming laser, an infrared aiming laser, and a variable focus infrared illuminator, along with the updated visible illumination flashlight head. The unique wrap-around low profile design allows the operator an unimpeded view. An easy to read LED display indicates the selected modes of operation, active laser emission and low battery indication. The display is adjustable for both day and NVG conditions.

All of the features and functions of the RAPTAR-Lite ES are controlled by ergonomic buttons within the housing of the unit. Included with this unit is a remote pressure pad which mirrors the same button configuration as on the unit, allowing for a quick adjustments and a variety of mounting positions. The visible illuminator and IR flood intensity can be controlled "on the fly" through either the remote pressure pad or through the unit itself. While compact and lightweight, the RAPTAR-Lite ES does not require the use of special tools for installation or removal. This system can be mounted two ways: directly onto the rail using the 1/4-inch, 20 screw or using the included rail interface. A single CR123 battery powers the RAPTAR-Lite ES. All lasers within the RAPTAR-Lite ES are co-aligned for easy bore-sighting and retention of zero.

As with all Wilcox products, it is easily maintained and designed to be repairable unlike any current system in the field. The body of the RAPTAR-Lite ES is manufactured from a high strength polymer for durability while also designed to be upgraded with emerging technology.

MSRP: $1,325
