Tactical Weapon Mountable Lights

Police officers everywhere have touted the use of mountable tactical weapon lights. There are many reasons for using one of these tac lights, but safety is the biggest by far. Before weapon mounted lights, officers had to manage a flashlight and their weapon at one time. This is not a safe situation when trying to neutralize a suspect.

While there are quite a few brands of tactical weapon lights available, one stands out from the rest. That one is Hellfighter. Hellfighter flashlights are made to be handled separately or weapon mounted at the user’s choice. All that is needed to attach the tactical light to the weapon is a mounting ring much like the ones used for rifle or shotgun scopes. It really is a simple thing to do on your own.

But police are not the only ones who can benefit from tactical weapon lights. Sportsmen, especially hunters, can use them as well in low light conditions. The use of these mounted lights has resulted in fewer accidents and hunting related deaths. Weapon mounted lights also provide for greater accuracy and aiming in pre-dawn dim light conditions.

Hellfighter flashlights are available in several mountable models; some 6 volt and some 12 volt. All are completely weapon mountable on demand. When it comes to quality, Hellfighter takes the prize.

Then there is the Hellfighter HX19 9 volt tactical weapon light uses three of those same CR123A rechargeable batteries which are included. This Hellfighter flashlight more than doubles the output of the X8 at 350 lumens. The bulb is Xenon and the body is made of anodized aluminum for durability that is unbeatable. The HX19 is waterproof up to 100 feet, too, making it usable for diving personnel as well.

Hellfighter also has a 12 volt model, the X21 and an LED version, the X8 LED in 6 volt. All are made from anodized aluminum for extra durability and have outputs that are amazing and bright.
