Arisaka Defense – 600 Series Light

The Arisaka 600 Series Light is an illumination package consisting of the Arisaka 600 Series Light Body, Tailcap, and Malkoff Devices Scout head. 

Malkoff offers several head options that all use TIR lenses and are fully potted for durability. Beam profile, output, and run times vary:

E2ST (Super Throw) – 20,000 lux at 1 meter and 650 initial/550 continuous out-the-front lumens. This head has a very focused beam for maximum distance. Continuous run time is 15-20 minutes on 2x CR123 cells or 45-60 minutes on 1x 16650 cell.
E2S (Super) – 12,000 lux at 1 meter and 750 initial/700 continuous out-the-front lumens. This head has a wider beam profile, giving more spill (but still has plenty of throw). Continuous run time is 15-20 minutes on 2x CR123 cells or 45-60 minutes on 1x 16650 cell.
E2T – 10,000 lux at 1 meter and 350 out-the-front lumens. This gives the light plenty of throw for medium range use, while still retaining enough spill for close range and peripheral lighting. Continuous run time is 90-120 minutes on 2x CR123 cells.
The 600 Series Light Body is manufactured without the mounting interface for the stock Picatinny clamp found on Scout lights. This greatly increases the clearance for front sights when used in combination with the Arisaka Inline Scout Mount or Offset Scout Mount, and allows the entire light to be pulled in very close to the rail system.

Weight: 3.5 oz (including batteries)
Length: 5.125″
Diameter: 1.0″ at the head.
The light body, Arisaka momentary tailcap, and head are CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and MIL-A-8625 Type III hard coat anodized. High quality Buna-N O-rings and CR123 batteries are included. The 600 Series Light will fit in any aftermarket Scout mount. Made in the USA.

Additionally, Arisaka will be exhibiting at the USASOC Sniper Competition, March 23 – 24 in the vendor tent on Range 37 on Ft Bragg.

    I have been very pleased with both companies so far. Word on the street is Arisaka is coming out with a hand held body. I look forward to it. I just wish they would make their own tape switch now.

    I’m happy to see someone is taking up the mantle of simple, strong, American-made weapon lights when Surefire seems to have decided that the more computers they stuff into a light, the better it is.

    Just need an alternative pistol light now.

  3. The 300-series Arisaka body I’ve got here certainly isn’t lacking, it’s a shame the Vampire head won’t work on it (mine anyway) but for the price it’s impressive indeed. As above, love to see a remote switch from them, or maybe a cheap, effective way to mount the common SureFire switches to 1913/M-LOK in a more reliable way than velcro. Also a tail cap to accept said switches, buying a SureFire one sort of feels silly when they cost as much as the body. #justthrowingideas

      SureFire’s SR07 switch doesn’t require velcro and mounts directly to pic rail, it even allows you to use zip ties to further secure it. Just saying.

      • Yep, aware, got 3-4 of them here. Never seen them packaged with a scout light though, and they cost what $75+? Obviously the quality is there but when you’ve already got a standard pressure switch with your light, having to shell out again for another one (that’s pretty much the same for the most part) just to mount directly to 1913 rail and then use a zip-tie to properly secure it like it’s the year 2000 again.. bit of a lacklustre situation in 2017 to my mind. Luckily Magpul have done the leg work and come out with a nice mount for the standard switch that’s reasonably priced.

    • Our latest bodies do support Surefire’s KM series white/IR heads featured on the Surefire M300V and M600V. If you send me an email or use our contact form at https://arisakadefense.com/pages/contact-us I can get you taken care of.

  4. I can say the 300 sure does take abuse. Mine is mounted with the head next to the port on a 7.5″ 7.62x39mm braked rifle. Still won’t die despite the fire engulfing it with each shot.

    I’m just failing to see the need for a sole flash light when companies like rhienmetal offer a smaller package with IR/Red laser/strobe/light functions in the LLM3
    It’s been done to death, how much more can you squeeze out of a single light concept?!
