Colt is already off to the races in 2017 with the Cobra revolver and Delta Elite Rail Gun, but the iconic gun maker decided to up the ante with its new Colt Lights line that consists of four tactical flashlights and four weapon light systems for hunting, training, law enforcement and security.

The weapon light models include the slim, rail-hugging integral-mount Microtac MS white light and Predator green models. All the integral-mount models are built with high performance, low-profile bodies and reversible heads and tails for optimal on-rail customization. They’re all powered by AA or AAA batteries and provide up to 400 lumens of output. The light mounting system allows for ambidextrous mounting options. Predator models ship with both white and green LEDs, the press release says.
“We wanted to make sure that our mountable lights were recoil-resistant for nearly all hunting rifle calibers,” said Tan Woo, lead design engineer for Colt Lights. “And for flexibility, we designed them to mount on both Picatinny and Weaver rail systems, so sportsmen can easily use them with their existing equipment.”

Meanwhile, the new handheld tactical flashlight line consists of the Peacemaker, which is powered by four CR123 cells and boasts 1200 lumens of high-intensity output, the compact slim-line Judge, powered by two CR123 cells and boasting 800 lumens of output, and the AMRAM Microtac AM100 and AM200 Backup series.
“When something goes bump in the night, these handheld flashlights offer the kind of illumination you need to inspire confidence,” says Woo.
