Today’s modular weapon platforms are a far cry from the ones used by older generations. Gone are the days when one had to hold a weapon in one hand and a flashlight in the other. Now, weapon and light makers have combined to create amazing weapon-mounted lighting solutions. This way, you need not fear taking a shot in the dark. At the same time, you won’t have to shift focus from the light to the weapon during a critically important moment. 

However, the light has to be built tough enough to survive not just recoil, but the rigors of combat. Not all tactical weapon-mounted lights can do that and this is why you need to be very sure of the light you put on your weapon. 

Your search for that ideal light is over. Enter the Modlite OKW 18650 that comes with the XTAR MC2 charger and Modlite’s own 3500mAh battery[1]*. It has a 680 lumens output and while it may seem less than many competitors, this is not the case. The Modlite OKW has been designed for extreme throw and in that aspect, it has no peers and hardly any superiors. 

Its throw is roughly 400 percent greater than the throw of the well-known Surefire M600DF. This makes it the best light for shoulder-fired weapons that would utilize its extreme throw more effectively.   

In a nutshell, the Modlite OKW 18650 offers very clearly identifiable targets all the way out to 250-300 yards, even in pitch dark conditions. This holds particularly true when you pair it with a high-quality low-powered variable optic (LPVO).
