Apex, NC, May 6, 2015 - Arisaka LLC is pleased to announce the availability of the 300 and 600 Series Lights. This limited first run provides an illumination package consisting of a Malkoff Devices Scout head combined with an Arisaka Light Body and Tailcap. Users can simply add an aftermarket Scout mount of their choice for a complete lighting solution.
The Malkoff Devices Scout heads come in one and two cell models. The single CR123 model has an output of 250 lumens and 45-60 minutes of run time, while the dual CR123 model has an output of 325 lumens and 90 minutes of run time. The reflector is a custom orange peel design from Don McLeish, which provides a blend of spill and throw suited for close to medium distances.
The Arisaka 300 and 600 Series Light Bodies are manufactured without the mounting interface for the stock Picatinny clamp found on Scout lights. This greatly increases the clearance for front sights or other rail accessories when used in combination with the Arisaka Inline Scout Mount or Offset Scout Mount, and allows the entire light to be pulled in very close to the rail system. The 300 and 600 Series Lights will fit in any aftermarket Scout® mount, as they retains the mounting holes and square lug interface on the underside of the light body.
The Arisaka Tailcap provides both momentary and constant-on functionality: the user can press the switch for momentary activation, and continue pressing forward until it clicks for constant-on. Clicking again will turn the light off. The Tailcap is built around Don McLeish's highly regarded McClicky switch. The Tailcap is also available separately, and is compatible with all Surefire E-Series, M300 and M600 Scout lights.
Introductory pricing starts at $149 for the 300 Series Light and $159 for the 600 Series Light.
