Recently, LaserMax debuted a new line of weapon-mounted tactical lights. Leading the charge of the high output LED lights is a model designed specifically for the GLOCK 42. After all, compromising on size should not mean compromising on ability.
The LaserMax CenterFire LED WeaponLight streams 100 lumens of bright white light at your target from the pint-sized module. Unlike carrying a separate flashlight, this offers a tactical advantage and keeps your support hand free. Lighting your target offers you the advantage of disorienting your opponent while clearly identifying your target and aim point.
The GLOCK 42 is designed for a close encounter, fast action, self-defense scenario. To that end, a light is unnecessary. However, situations exist where an additional light is necessary to positively identify the threat. If for nothing else, during the investigation after the shooting, it would show you had the ability at a minimum. Better yet, it shows you had a step in the force continuum to disorient with light—an ability not to be underestimated.
Studies and statistics have shown the majority of defensive firearm use takes place at night. This makes the LaserMax CenterFire WeaponLight a vital addition to the .380 GLOCK pistol. “We’ve made it our business to find innovative ways to perfect the modern pocket pistol,” stated LaserMax Director of Marketing, Celia Grimes. The new WeaponLight does just that.
Many manufacturers make holsters tailored for specific model handguns. However, adding an accessory such as the LaserMax CenterFire LED WeaponLight creates an issue and limits choices. To resolve the issue, LaserMax includes an ambidextrous pocket holster in every package.
Popular for both concealed carry and as a police back up gun, the GLOCK .380 42 is heralded for its simplicity, natural grip-angle, low bore-axis, intuitively placed controls, and outstanding reliability. In accordance with these attributes, LaserMax worked diligently to balance compact size, light weight and optimal performance in a package that was rugged enough for GLOCK’s toughest customers. The resulting CenterFire WeaponLight is constructed with a robust, Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon (FRN) housing that withstands the shock of repeated recoil. Mimicking the styling of the GLOCK so well that it is hard to tell where the pistol ends and light begins. The CenterFire WeaponLight weighs less than one ounce and boasts a solid hour of continuous run time. Other features include an ambidextrous tap on/tap off activation switch, 10-minute auto timeout feature and disorienting strobe mode option.
