Weapon mounted lights (sometimes called “weaponlights”) offer hands-free use, leaving the operator free to use both hands to control the weapon. Most models have an on/off switch mounted on a short wire. The switch is then mounted somewhere on the gun within easy reach of the firer’s fingers. Weapon mounted lights are most commonly seen on rifles, shotguns, and submachine guns, but they are becoming more common on handguns as well. These lights are often much more expensive than the handheld lights, since they must be sufficiently robust to withstand the recoil of the firearm, and the dedicated mounting hardware also adds to the price.
Weaponlights provide light using the Large Burst Template.
