Nightstick Launches New IR/VIS Dual-Beam Long Gun Light Kit
LGL-180-IR Dual-Wavelength Long Gun Light Kit
Wylie, Texas - Nightstick, a global manufacturer of professional tactical LED lighting products is proud to announce our new LGL-180-IR dual-wavelength long gun light kit featuring separate 1100-lumen white light and 940nm 1400mw Infrared illuminator.
The LGL-180-IR is a dual-wavelength weapon lighting system for your rifle or carbine. A hybrid dual reflector with two dedicated LEDs for IR and VIS means no compromise when choosing an operational light mode. Each beam is optimally focused for ultra-high intensity and maximum distance. The LGL-180-IR projects 1100 lumens of visible white light out to 229 meters for 2 hours of runtime, while a separate 1400mw 940nm IR illuminator beam provides a similar range, intensity and runtime during night vision use.
A tactile, rotating collar on the bezel allows the user to select visible (VIS) or infrared (IR) modes, or OFF by feel. The light comes installed with a standard tail cap switch and reversible thumbscrew Picatinny mount. It can alternatively be mounted with the included offset Picatinny mount, providing flexible options to clear front sights and other mounted equipment while allowing easy support hand activation.
Both the tail cap switch as well as the included 6-inch remote pressure pad/switch feature momentary or constant-on modes. The kit also includes an RPS Picatinny rail mount and Nightstick-exclusive wire management rail clamp to prevent cable snags. The LGL-180-IR weapon light kit includes a pair of CR123 batteries. The multi-fuel LGL-180-IR also runs on a single 18650 li-ion battery (sold separately). Based on LE agency requests, Nightstick also developed an optional dual-pad remote pressure switch for the LGL-180-IR with secondary Crane connector for controlling an additional laser aiming device (LAD).
"Leveraging the success of our LGL-160 long gun light and feedback from law enforcement agencies unsatisfied with the performance of existing IR & VIS WML options available elsewhere, our Engineering Team took on the design challenge and delivered,” says Brian Whalen, Nightstick Marketing Manager for Law Enforcement and Sporting Goods. “The LGL-180-IR’s unique independent reflectors maximize light intensity in both the visible and IR spectrums, without sacrificing one for the other. This uncompromising design, not available until now, gives the operator threat identification and confirmation peace of mind, when life depends on light.”
