500 Lumen INFORCE WMLx – Initial Thoughts

Posted on April 19th, 2014 by ar15news

The other day I got a nice surprise box in the mail. In the box was the new INFORCE WMLx which is the 500 lumen variant of the very popular INFORCE WML. I personally own plenty of the standard WML’s so the new WMLx won’t take much getting use to as it really isn’t much different. As you can see in the picture below the WMLx is not much bigger than its predecessor. It is a bit longer just to accommodate for the extra CR123 battery and slightly larger head to help power the additional lumens. It still only weighs just 4 ounces with the batteries and has a run time of 2 hours.

The built in 1913 mounting clamp works exactly the same way on both lights as well as the lockout bar. Both of the lights pictured above have a lever on the side. That lever on the standard WML changes the output from White Light to IR Light. I assumed this was the same on the WMLx and expected to see the little red IR emitters glowing inside. Instead I totally blinded myself and realized that the lever on the WMLx changes the activation switch from multifunction to momentary only. This is one feature that I didn’t know about but really like. On one setting you have High, Low, Momentary, Strobe and Off. With the lever flipped the other way you have Momentary ONLY. The Momentary Only setting is great for times when you only want a quick blast of light to blind an intruder, etc and have the light only stay on as long as you are holding the button down. As soon as you let go it shuts off. No fumbling through multiple settings, etc. 

Figuring out how I wanted to mount my new WMLx wasn’t hard at all. With any of my WML’s or Pistol Lights I either mount it to the top rail or use an Impact Weapons Components 1913 Offset Mount. To mount it to the Geissele SMR MK5 rail I used the KeyMod version. IWC makes some of my personal favorite mounts and this is one of them. They run $50 but you can save 5% if you use our discount code “ar15news” at checkout.

I’ve only had it for a short time but I’m really digging the WMLx. At 500 lumens its significantly brighter than the standard 200 lumen WML but not really that much bigger. Some will say 500 lumens is too bright for use on a home defense rifle but that is something you will have to decide for yourself. I know if an encounter spilled into the outdoors at night, 500 lumens would come in really handy. I’m going to get some additional play time with the WMLx before writing a serious review but wanted to let you know what I thought so far. 

Word on the street is that these will be available later this month and will retail in the $150-160 range. Keep an eye on your favorite INFORCE retailer to get these in. You can check out all of the other lights INFORCE makes at www.INFORCE-Mil.com

NEW!! Naroh KeyMod Handstop, Barrier Stop and QD Mount

Posted on April 18th, 2014 by ar15news

Yesterday I ran across a company that I had never heard of before while perusing the inventory of a company I’m extremely familiar with. Let me explain…pretty much ever day I hop on the internet looking for new items to tell you guys about. I decided to check out the “NEW” section at Rainier Arms. I was pretty interested by what I found. They just started carrying some KeyMod accessories from a company called Naroh. They offer a Handstop, Barrier Stop and a QD Sling Mount all made of 6-Series Aluminum and anodized black. They look pretty sweet and aren’t priced bad either. Check them out for yourself at www.RainierArms.com.

NEW!! 2A Armament “BALIOS-lite” Billet AR-15 Lower

Posted on April 17th, 2014 by ar15news

So you want to build a lightweight AR but you’re tired of everyone using the same old parts that usually consist of sub-par materials? This new 2A Armament BALIOS-lite Billet AR-15 lower receiver appears to be the perfect fit for your new build. Not only does it look much different than most lowers on the market right now but it is very lightweight at just 6.5 ounces (normal mil spec lowers are 8.1 – 8.8 ounces) while still being made from billet 7075-T6 aluminum. This was achieved by machining additional material from the lower. From what I hear there is a new billet upper receiver coming immediately after the lower as well. The pictures below show it before finishing. The production lowers will be coated and may offer additional colors. They are planning on releasing availability and pricing info later this month. For additional updates, be sure to follow the 2A Armament Facebook page. Check out the pics and details below.

NEW!! ZeroBravo KeyMod RHS (Reversible Hand Stop)

Posted on April 14th, 2014 by ar15news

Recently a guy named Todd, who is very well known in the firearms industry, ventured out on his own to start a new company called ZeroBravo. ZeroBravo is looking to be a big player in the accessory market and they’re already introducing their first product called the RHS which stands for Reversible Hand Stop. The RHS is a very minimalistic KeyMod hand stop that, as you might have gathered, can be mounted with the curved section facing towards the front or back of the rifle. It just all depends on how you as the shooter use a hand stop and what is most comfortable for you.

For the most part you’ll see people running their hand stop on the back side of their support hand (shown below) to help them pull the rifle into their shoulder which makes sense. This is how I tend to use mine as well. Other people will put it at the very end of the rail and use it as more of a “hand stop” where it keeps your hand from proceeding forward any more. This can be very helpful for those running a suppressor with a shorter rail system to help keep your mitts off that hot can.

You can also mount the RHS on the side of your rail as an index point as well.

The ZeroBravo RHS should be available from retailers by the end of this month. Retail should be $39.95. Construction is currently under way over at ZeroBravo.com so right now the best way to connect with them and keep and eye on future offerings is to like the ZeroBravo Facebook page
