Sightmark Makes their Mark with Improved LoPro Series

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

(MANSFIELD, TEXAS) – Sightmark makes their mark by offering their redesigned LoPro family in Dark Earth finish. LoPro’s are a compact laser and laser-light combo attachment for your firearm, helping you with precision accuracy and rock-solid reliability. LoPro’s are the perfect attachment for accuracy while training, hunting, self-defense and even in low-light shooting.

Sightmark will add three models to the line in Dark Earth; LoPro Mini Combo Green Laser and Flashlight (SM25012DE), LoPro Combo Green Laser and IR-Visible LED Flashlight (SM25013DE) and the LoPro Mini Green Laser Sight (SM25016DE). Improvements consist of a new aluminum housing, protected windage and elevation adjustments and a thread-on and rotating pressure pad.

LoPro’s can be easily adjusted without a tool and feature a high intensity, variable LED flashlight to allow you to see in any situation. The low-profile design securely mounts on a rail with a screw pressure pad and can sit in front of most attachments without obstructing your view.

NERF Rival – Flashlight Grip

Thursday, December 21st, 2017

One thing I appreciate about the more recent NERF products is the mimicry of furniture and features found on actual firearms, like accessory rails and optics, or in the case of this NERF Rival accessory, a combination flashlight and foregrip. Called the ‘Flashlight Grip’, this particular foregrip features a quick-release camlock, and features an LED light powered by 3 AAA batteries. The lumens aren’t mentioned, but at $15, I’m guessing it’s not that bright. Still, a pretty cool addition to the Rival line, all the same.

World’s Most Powerful Handheld Laser (or…could just be hyperbole)

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Wicked Lasers is touting they’re newest laser, the S3 Krypton Series, as the most powerful handheld laser you can legally own. They advise that it’s over 8,000 times brighter than the sun and say it’s under review by the Guinness Book of World Records. “Safety goggles are a must.” They even provide them and a “tactical” holster! Of course, in the video they seem to confuse the range at which the beam is no longer visible to the human eye vs. how long it actually extends, but that’s really a minor quibble. If it’s visible from outer space, as they claim, that’s pretty damn visible.
