Inforce APL Weapon Light Review






I've been using the APL for a while now; here's what I've found.....


Pros:
-Cost. The light can be had for around $100
-The activation paddles are very easy to activate and ambidextrous
-Uses relatively common CR123 battery
-Mounts easily
-Comes with two mounting brackets---universal and 1913
-200 C4 LED output. It's a nice white light with a good peripheral cone.
-O ring sealed
-Lightweight. Weighs 2.8oz.

Cons:

-It's not as bright as some lights on the market but brightness isn't an end all, be all on a weapon light.
-1.5hr runtime (but only uses 1 battery vs. 2 for most weapon lights.

Here's a review of the light with a side by side comparison with some other weapon lights at night, some shooting (day/night), and a discussion of the pros and cons:

Nice review, I was looking at it for a strict nightstand duty with my Glock 21sf (funny). I have a TLR-1s on my CCW which is a Glock 19..I have various holsters for the Glock 19 with the light, without it, IWB, OWB, all the above. So wouldn't be wise to switch over the Inforce APL. But I wouldn't mind slapping one onto a gun that it could just stay on, like my Glock 21sf.

I'll look into one. Thank you for the review.
