Fight-Lite from ARES Defense

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

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.

The shape of things to come? The Modular Sporting Rifle prototype may be just the thing if threatened weapon bans are enacted. Designed to fit any AR-15 style upper receiver, the MSR looks as if an M4 mated with an 870. It certainly hides some of those menacing “assault weapon” features such as pistol grips, collapsible stocks, and external mag wells. When combined with a flat top upper, you can barely tell the rifle is a black rifle.
