Fight-Lite from ARES Defense

ARES Defense has been around for many years and while their bread and butter has been their weapon systems they showed us a couple of new products at the recent Modern Day Marine Expo. One, the Fight-Lite is an innovative modification to the standard AR-style upper receiver.

The Fight-Lite is a button activated low powered red LED that illuminates the interior of the upper receiver. It can be used in low-light conditions to check the chamber and assist with clearing stoppages. While ARES Defense offers an upper with the Fight-Lite already installed, the technology can be applied to existing uppers incorporating a spent case deflector.

    I’ve always thought that the AR platform was in need of an integrated chamber light. That and a universal television remote and maybe somewhere to put a couple of pens.


    Great idea! Where can I get one?

    That’s what nods and surefire helmet lights are for, no?

    Ken that’s a good point, but the Ares product looks like it makes things much easier. The light is already where you need it and this kind of thing could be useful if you need to see what’s going on quick.

    Is this from the same “Shrike” ARES Defense?
