Pocket Size and Powerful: Leupold’s® New Compact MXc™ Series Flashlights

New tactical lights from LeupoldLeupold’s new compact MXc flashlights comfortably fit in a pocket, built to provide powerful, reliable illumination for law enforcement and military personnel under the harshest field conditions.

The MXc line includes six models (five are multi-mode), each one inch in diameter, five inches or less in length, and weighing less than three ounces. Each is designed to produce a perfectly focused beam for virtually any field situation.

Anodized to exceed military standards, MXc flashlights are exceptionally rugged, corrosion resistant and waterproof to 132 feet.

Especially suited for tactical situations, the MXc-421 model features a disorienting 120-lumen strobe as well as a screw-in Alumina striker with serrated edges as a self-defense enhancement.

“We streamlined our new MXc flashlights and made them easy to carry and operate without sacrificing quality, performance, runtime, or versatility,” said Kevin Trepa, vice president of tactical sales and marketing. “The MXc may be small, yet it is tough enough for heavy-duty on the blackest nights or stormiest days.”

Regulated by advanced drive electronics and tuned for optimum performance, each MXc utilizes a bin-sorted, True White™ LED assembly that includes a Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens to produce a tight, powerful beam for warm and natural illumination. The assembly is protected by a highly durable and scratch-resistant sapphire window.

A total control switch in the MXc’s tailcap is easy to locate in the dark and allows the user to quickly click between modes. Each MXc has a reversible clip that securely fastens to the bill of a cap for hands-free illumination, or keeps the flashlight safely tucked away in a shirt or pants pocket.

New tactical lights from LeupoldMXc flashlights run on CR-123A lithium batteries and are compatible with specialized 20mm threaded Alumina filters. The red Alumina filter lowers the intensity of light output, preventing night-vision impairment that can be caused by white light. The blue Alumina filter can be used to track blood trails in failing light.
