CTL Compact Weapon-Light
By Viridian Green Laser
New compact and subcompact pistol designs are showing up daily, with many of them having very little space for a rail-mounted accessory. Some have only one mounting slot. Viridian Green Laser customers asked for a tough, powerful, programmable weaponlight, which wouldn’t extend past the muzzle. VGL’s response: the CTL Compact Tactical Light.
The CTL requires just 1″ of rail space and comes with three different rail sets to fit most makes. Constructed of hard anodized aircraft-grade aluminum and Zytel polymer, it packs a 100-lumen, wide-field LED light, automatically boosting to 140 lumens on strobe mode. Tap controls are ambidextrous, and the CTL can be user-programmed for both variable constant-light intensity and frequency of its strobing rate. A single CR2 battery provides power, and it’s front loading so you can change batteries without removing the unit from the pistol.
The CTL is also ECR (Enhanced Combat Readiness) compatible, which means it mates with VGL’s TacLoc holsters. This allows you to set the CTL’s mode, holster the pistol, and the instant you draw, it turns on automatically! MSRP is $169. www.americancopmagazine.com/viridian
