Inforce/HSP WML Light Review







I've had the HSP WML for about a month now and have been running in on a couple long guns. Here's what I've found so far...

Pros:
-Cost. The light can be had for around $120 shipped.
-Uses one 3V CR2 lithium battery.
-Easy on/off mounting. Very secure once mounted
-It handles recoil well. No issues on the 12ga pump shotguns
-Momentary on/off only. I generally prefer simple on/off controls on defensive lights but this may be a "con" for some folks.
-200 lumen output
-Has two methods of preventing it from accidently being activated (1. twist the bezel or put up the hinge on the back of the light to prevent it from being hit by gear/ect...)
-Lightweight. 3oz with battery (includes mount)
-1.5 hour constant run time.
-Cost. Comes in at around $109

Cons:
-Only comes in black (due to it being the strongest polymer)

Here's a video showing some day/night shooting, a comparison with a 104 lumen LED Maglite and a Surefire X300U, a deomonstration of the mounting system, and a discussion of the pros and cons of the light:

Looks like a nice light. I need a new one for my HD Glock. My old insight tech m6x light is just not up to par with all the new lights. The new ones are so much brighter. I may get one of those or a TRL1.

curious question. What are you paying for a cr2 battery at your local store?

My light uses cr123 and about $10.00 for two in my area if you can even find them. They seem to be difficult to find most the time.

Certainly not the local store but that's the last 10 pack I bought---$19
