Hey everyone!

Like many of you, I’m always on the look-out for new kit to up my gameplay and I’ve recently discovered a brand of tactical lights that give you ALL the lumens for a reasonable price. The brand is Olight, and today I’ll be giving you the lowdown on their M20SX JAVELOT kit. The M20SX JAVELOT from Olight is a new generation of the popular two-tail-switch tactical flashlight that we’ve seen become popular in airsoft over the last few years. This model from Olight has an aircraft-grade aluminium body with anti-scratch type III hard anodizing and it is powered by either 2 x CR123A or 1 x 18650 battery (which aren’t included).

Although it is available on its own, the M20SX JAVELOT kit comes with a load of tactical accessories including a magnetic weapon mount, blue/red/green filters, and a remote pressure switch.

So what are the key features? Well, it has three brightness settings from 25 to an absolutely whopping 820 lumens, and it even features a strobe mode! The customised CREE LED has a smooth reflector to create a tightly-focused beam that can reach up to 370M. The multi-function click tail switch has momentary activation and on/off making it easy to use in game, and it has quick access direct to the brightest level and strobe mode. It has a side switch to select modes, and what is really cool is the memory function that can be used to remember the last power setting used meaning you can set your torch up for game days and simply load the last setting saving you the hassle of doing it again. It even has reverse polarity protection to prevent improper battery installation (we’ve all seen folk put their batteries in the wrong way) and thermal management to avoid overheating.

So how does it work? The torch itself has a good weight to it and feels sturdy in the hand. It is easy to set-up, although, I used the Olight offset mount rather than the magnetic mount as it worked with my M4 platform more seamlessly. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to use the strobe setting during a game but this torch really is bright AF, and on the brightest setting, the beam does momentarily disorientate opposing players meaning you can get a pretty good drop on them. I really like the pressure pad that’s included as it makes it much more usable during quick engagements in game. The switch tail wire is a little long but can be fed around the mount keeping it out of the way and tidy.

From the Olight UK store the M20SX JAVELOT kit is £129.95 however, over the weekend of (tomorrow) July 27th – July 31st 2018 Olight is having a huge sale and offering 20% off the kit, and a free l3E keyring torch! There’s also free shipping over £30 for customers in the UK.  With the upcoming sale the Javelot kit is really good value for money especially considering the lumens output!
