Long recognized as a purveyor of quality, economical red-dot and variable-magnification riflescopes, Lucid Optics has now stepped into the illumination game with its C3 Weapons Light.

Intended primarily for use aboard a defensive carbine, the 3"-long C3 can be affixed to any three-slot segment of Picatinny rail, and its low profile even allows the light to be used at the 12-o’clock position atop the receiver without occluding the sight picture of AR-height irons.

The 300-lumen C3 Weapons Light can be activated via a push-button switch on the top of its durable 6061-aluminum housing, and holding down this pressure switch also activates a disorienting strobe mode. Suggested retail price is $130.
