BCMGUNFIGHTER Light Mounts: The BCMGUNFIGHTER series of light mounts for KeyMod platforms delivers fully ambidextrous usage and are machined from solid billet aluminum with a low-profile and snag-free design. The mounts are engineered to mount flush or cantilevered off either the left or right side of a rail system, are compatible with most common Picatinny rail systems, and are offered in three primary configurations: 1913 KeyMod Modular Light Mount, Scout KeyMod Modular Light Mount and One Inch Modular KeyMod Light Mount.
Crimson Trace CMR-206: This is a super compact green laser designed to fit on pistols, shotguns or rifles. The CMR-206 is compatible with any Picatinny/Weaver rail system. Ambidextrous controls make activation simple and easy with three modes of operation: momentary, strobe or constant on. The device will run for two hours of constant use.
LaserLyte Training Tyme AR-LT-C556 Kit: This training kit is specifically set up for use in AR rifles and includes a .223-sized laser cartridge, a 32-inch push rod to eject the laser cartridge from most barrel lengths, an oversized charging handle to re-cock the weapon, allowing the rifle’s hammer to activate the laser when the trigger is pulled, and a charging block that prevents live ammo from being chambered. The easy-to-install system works with any .223-caliber AR.
LaserMax Uni-IR Rifle Pack: The Uni-IR (infrared) unit is the smallest and lightest IR laser available. The Class I IR laser unit only takes up 1.75 inches of rail space and it uses two 357 silver oxide batteries. The unit’s run time is six hours. The Uni-IR mounts quickly to any Weaver or Picatinny-style rail. The rifle pack kit includes genuine MAS (Momentary Activation Switch) and genuine Manta clips to keep cords neat.
NCStar Green Laser & 4 Color NAV LED: The Green Laser and 4 Color NAV LED designator box combines a fully-adjustable 5mW green laser with LED NAV lights in four colors: white, red, green or blue. The low-power LED NAV light is good for maneuvering while using night-vision gear as well as supplementing brighter tactical lights. The unit includes a remote pressure switch and runs on one CR123A battery.
NCStar Blue Laser: The Blue Laser from NCStar is the first blue laser offered in the U.S. The device offers a brightness level that falls between the brightness of red and green lasers. The unit features a built-in mount that fits any Picatinny/Weaver rails, and it offers 30+ hours of run time on one CR123A battery.
Streamlight TLR-1 HPL: The TLR-1 HPL is a long-range (the beam can project out to 438 meters), 775-lumen lithium light that mounts to a weapon’s rail system. The unit is shockproof and provides 1.75 hours of run time on two CR123A batteries. Either a standard or remote switch activates the light.
Streamlight TLR-2 IRW: The TLR-2 IRW integrates a 300-lumen, lithium light and a Class I, eye-safe, IR, long-range aiming laser in a compact unit that mounts to an AR’s Picatinny or Weaver rail. The unit is shockproof, made of 6000 series aluminum and weighs only 4.72 ounces. The two CR123A batteries provides 2.5 hours of run time. The TLR-2 IRW is compatible with a remote switch.
Sun Optics USA Illuminated Laser Light: This compact combo aiming laser and white tactical light offers a 250-lumen LED light to punch holes in the dark and a 5mW green laser to pinpoint a target. The unit’s three-way activation switch allows for the use of the light only, light and laser, or laser only. It also features a built-in mount for use on most rail systems and comes with two pressure cords.
SureFire M600AA Scout Light: The M600AA Scout Light from SureFire features a recoil-proof, high-output, 200-lumen, LED light that is ideal for close- to medium-range applications. The unit is powered by either AA lithium or AA alkaline batteries—the latter being more readily available worldwide, particularly in remote areas—and its runtime is 3.75 hours at the highest setting. The device’s overall length is 6.8 inches and it weighs 5.2 ounces.
UTG Sub-compact LED Light & Aiming Adjustable Red Laser: UTG combines a red laser and white LED light in a small package that can fit on most Picatinny/Weaver style rails. The light offers 120 lumens of power and a class 3R red laser that is adjustable for windage and elevation. The unit is only 2.4 inches long and weighs 2.4 ounces.
Viridian X5L-RS: The X5L-RS is designed to bring peak green laser and white light performance to your long gun. A unique rotary selector dials in multiple light and laser modes. An exclusive two-button pressure pad puts optimum light and laser control at your fingertips. A bright 178/224-lumen tactical light delivers blinding power and the brilliant green laser ensures sharp, clear targeting day or night.
Wilcox RAPTAR Lite ES Class1 Infrared Laser: The RAPTAR (RAPid TARgeting) integrates sophisticated electronics into one unit with a 300-lumen SureFire LED white light head, a Class I infrared laser, and a variable-focus infrared illuminator. All functions are controlled via onboard buttons or a remote pressure switch. The laser pointers are slaved together for easy zeroing.
Target identification is absolutely necessary in a low-light or no-light situation.

A tactical light that shines a beam of white light on a target aids in differentiating friend from foe. A light backed up by an aiming laser makes shooting a weapon after target identification fast and sure. Lasers also aid in firing an AR in unconventional shooting positions, and IR lasers offer stealth when night fighting with night-vision gear.
