Way Of The Gun Brings Manufacturing In-House

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Frank Proctor tells us Way Of The Gun is bringing manufacturing in-house. They’ve got a CNC machine up and running and they are using it to produce some of their parts as well as custom slides for the GLOCK.

The first product they are producing is the new version of a light mount which Frank designed for the Streamlight Protac 1L. He raves about this little light for its size, cost, durability and function and his PLM V3 mount is a great combination. The Picatinny compatible mount also fits several other small light like the Surefire E series and Phenix. Keep your eyes peeled for a 1” light version of the mount, coming soon.

Frank also really likes the new 800 lumen TLR1 from Streamlight. Here, you can see it along with a sneak peek of the GLOCK slide.

Marine South – Streamlight TLR-6

Monday, April 11th, 2016

Streamlight’s TLR-6 is designed specifically for use with subcompact semiauto pistols such as the Glock 26, 27, 33, 42, 43; M&P Shield 9 amd 40; Kimber Micro; SIG P238 and P938 as well as the wide variety of Kahr subcompact pistols. The way they do this is through a variety of housings that use the same light/laser module.  As you can see, the idea was to conform to these smaller frames as much as possible by connecting to the trigger guard.

The activation button of the 100 lumen pistol light is on either side of the TLR-6 and could be a reach for those with short fingers. To change modes from light to laser, you must push both buttons at once. However, the two 3v CR-1/3N lithium batteries provide one hour of dual 100 lumen light and laser mode. They can be swapped out without removing the light from the pistol. It is IPX4 water resistant to 1 meter.

Marine South – Streamlight Super Siege Lantern

Sunday, April 10th, 2016

When the Siege lantern first came out from Streamlight, I had a chance to try it out and it quickly became a must-have for camping trips. This year, they’ve introduced a new model called the Super Siege by upping the lumens to 1,100 and incorporating an 8800 mAh rechargeable lithium ion battery with USB ports for power in as well as out. You can charge the lamp or use it to power other devices such as cell phones.

 

There are five LEDs (one White and four Red). There are six output modes including Red SOS as well as a battery indicator. The Super Siege also incorporates a “Glare Guard” which can be used to shield up to half of the globe to direct light. There is also a watertight storage compartment in the base.

Available in Coyote or Yellow.

Streamlight’s ‘The Siege’ is a compact, akaline hand lantern. It features two LED modes:

White LED – four C4 LEDs
– High; 340 lumens with a 30 hour run time
– Medium; 175 lumens with a 70 hour run time
– Low; 33 lumes with a 295 hour run time

Red LED – one red LED
– High; steady night vision preserving mode – 10 lumens with a 235 hour run time
– Flash SOS mode; 10 lumens with a 430 hour run time

The Siege comes with a polycarbonate glare-reducing cover that provides soft, even 360° light distribution. The cover is removable to illuminate larger areas. Incorporated D-rings are featured on the top and bottom of the lantern and are spring-loaded to stow against the light, out of the way when not in use. The handle is designed to lock in either an upright or stowed position.

The Siege uses three D-cell alkaline batteries, and the battery door is keyed to facilitate battery replacement in the dark. The power button is recessed to prevent accidental actuation, and the lantern also features a battery level indicator – green, to yellow, to red, then to flashing red when batteries are at the end of useable life.

The Siege is constructed from durable polymer with a rubber molded base. It’s certified IPX7 waterproof to 1m submersion, 2m impact resistance tested, and it floats for easy retrieval from water.
