LaserLyte Expands Rear Sight Laser Line and Offers New Installation Tool

Cottonwood, Ariz. – LaserLyte® announces new Rear Sight Laser (RSL) models for Ruger® Mark I™, II™ and III™ pistols, Ruger 10/22® rifles with rear dove tail sights and Smith & Wesson® Sigma™ VE and GVE pistols. The RSL’s groundbreaking laser design incorporated into the rear sight, compact size and revolutionary performance make it the most extraordinary system LaserLyte has produced. Easy-to-install and easy-to-operate, the new RSL offers a high-power laser with the benefit of not having to replace existing grips or internal stock parts.

The RSL’s activation switch is a strategically placed button at the back of the slide that is easily activated by the thumb in a normal shooting position for left- or right-handed shooters. First press of the activation switch produces the constant on mode, second press produces pulse mode, and third press deactivates the laser. A small LED on the back of the laser indicates if the laser is on and what mode it is in.

The RSL is also available for many other pistols including Glock®, Springfield Armory® XD/XD(M)™ and Smith & Wesson M&P™. The unit is constructed from MIM 4650, nickel enriched high carbon steel, the same material used for most heavy-duty gun parts such as iron sights, hammers and levers. It is also black chrome, bead blasted for a non-reflective finish. When mounted onto the pistol the RSL will fit all Level I and II holsters.  The RSL is powered by four 377 batteries that provide six hours of normal usage. Normal usage is defined as one minute on and one minute off. This test mimics actual usage where the unit is turned on and off and the battery is given time to automatically regenerate. MSRP $199.95.

LaserLyte also announces its new Rear Sight Laser Installation Tool. This ingenious system easily removes the rear sight from the dovetail of almost all* semi-auto pistols and makes installation of the LaserLyte RSL effortless. The RSL Installation Tool is perfect for gunsmiths or gunsmith-minded people and smoothly drifts the sight in or out. No more tapping or banging required.

The RSL Installation Tool frame is constructed from 6061 T6 aluminum with an anodized finish and the fully adjustable clamp screws made of 1215 steel for ultimate durability.  The specially designed sight extractor is made of 8620 steel with HRC 50-54 hardness and the metal contact points are rubber coated to protect the slide from marring. MSRP $199.95

LaserLyte, the leader in laser technology, is the shooting and hunting division of P&L Industries. The company strives to heighten the experience of shooting by offering high quality, competitively priced lasers and other firearms accessories.

New Stratum Takes Its Place in SureFire’s “Practical” Product Line

SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, announces the release of the latest model in their growing line of variable-output flashlights. The all-new Stratum features three very useful output levels: five lumens on low, 50 lumens on medium, and 160 lumens on high, more than enough light to find your way in the dark. The styling is a modern take on SureFire’s original 6P® flashlight, that has been the company’s best seller since 1988.

Stratum’s three output levels offer users more control by allowing them to select the best output for the task at hand-and to better manage the light’s power source, two 123A lithium batteries. At its five-lumen low setting, the flashlight will not compromise a user’s night-adapted vision and continues producing useful light levels for up to 60 hours on a set of batteries. At its 50-lumen setting, Stratum’s range increases while its runtime decreases: down to five hours. The high setting delivers a lot of light for an impressive 2 hours.

Push or click Stratum’s tailcap pushbutton switch, at any level, for a beam optimized by its micro-textured coated precision reflector. The resulting beam-especially on high-has plenty of reach with enough surrounding light to accommodate peripheral vision and maximize situational awareness. The high-output, virtually indestructible LED has no filament to burn out or break, and is regulated by an internal microprocessor. All of this sophisticated technology is protected from the elements by a lightweight but durable aerospace aluminum body and O-ring and gasket sealing that keeps out moisture, dust, and dirt.

At only five inches long, less than six ounces loaded with batteries, the Stratum comes in an attractive, machined body that is Mil-Spec hard-anodized in black for extreme durability. The light retails for $165.00 and is available now. For more information, visit www.SureFire.com.New Stratum Takes Its Place in SureFire's Practical Product Line

SureFire Releases First AA Battery Flashlight

surefirelogoSureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, has released a new model to its popular Outdoorsman series of flashlights. Like other members of the Outdoorsman family, the new E2L AA features a dual-output, solid-state LED emitter; tailcap switching; a TIR lens, and a weather-resistant aerospace aluminum body that’s been Mil-Spec hard anodized. It differs, however, in its power source. The E2L AA, as its name suggests, runs on either two AA lithium or AA alkaline batteries-a first for SureFire.

The progression of LED technology has finally led to a reasonable output/runtime combination that measured up to SureFire standards. For nearly twenty years, SureFire was the only flashlight manufacturer to use lithium 123A batteries, the only sufficient compact power source to run the high-output incandescent lamps that made SureFire famous. However, 123A batteries aren’t as cheap as AA and are harder to find. AA batteries are still not as powerful as the 123A so the E2L AA Outdoorsman was designed primarily for outdoor use, but it’s built to the same standards as its battle-proven brothers.

Of course, a choice of batteries is not the only factor that makes the E2L AA a great fit for the Great Outdoors. Its power-regulated LED generates two output levels: 80 lumens of light on high (four times the light of a typical two-D-cell flashlight), perfect for searching or signaling, or three lumens on low, enough light for navigating, reading a map, or other close-range tasks without compromising night-adapted vision. The flashlight runs for nine hours on a set of AA lithium batteries at its high setting and 60 hours at its low setting, allowing a user to better manage runtime by switching between the two levels as needed. A Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens gathers the solid-state LED’s light and shapes it into a versatile beam with plenty of reach and enough surround light to accommodate peripheral vision. And to protect the E2L AA from the elements, its Mil-Spec hard-anodized aerospace aluminum body is sealed with O-rings and gaskets to keep out moisture and dirt.

The E2L AA retails for $159 and is available now. For more information visit www.SureFire.com.
