Lately I have been working with a sample of this outstanding 750 lumen adjustable tactical light. When my book “Own the Night-Selection and Use of Tactical Lights and Laser Sights” was published in 2009, the top end LED lights on the market were at a very respectable 120 lumens. I predicted that the technology would continue to improve and boy did it ever!!
What I like about the TAC-OPS T4 in particular is its adjustment system. By simply turning a dial on the light head, one can switch from Low to High to OFF (which River Rock calls Safety-Lock – which it is). You don’t want a light of this power to be left on in a confined space-the buildup of heat could be disastrous. Also the High Setting is way too much power for close in work that you would use a day to day flashlight for in police work-somewhere in the 100 lumen or less range. But that 750, oh my what an eyeball scorcher for tactical use, and it blankets a large area, giving you a large area of coverage and effect in dynamic entry or search situations. It would be excellent for attachment to an AR-15.
Other likes? Price!. Retail is $99.95. Batteries? Only needs two CR123 lithiums to power it and not 3. Size? Very compact for power output.
I highly recommend this light for your consideration.
