Looking for a new light for your AR-15? Say hello to the Inforce WML.
I recently built another AR-15 (they’re like potato chips—no one can stop at just one). In the interest of mixing things up a bit, I decided to keep this AR a lightweight build. With the main components together (lower, upper, barrel, etc.), I wanted a couple of lightweight accessories to finish off the rifle, namely a lightweight weapons light. As you’ve deduced, this is where the Inforce WML (weapons mounted light) comes in.
I first heard about the Inforce WML from Travis Haley of Magpul and Haley Strategic fame. When Haley introduced the new Jack Carbine (produced by BCM), I noticed the slick AR setup featured an Inforce WML light. The Inforce WML is a small, light weight (~3oz, including batteries), tac light that features a Picatinny rail mounting system, just the ticket for my new AR. On the low output setting, the Inforce WML generates a sufficient (for general use) 30 lumens. However, on high output, it beams a more potent 175 watts. However, white light isn’t your only option when it comes to Inforce’s WML; these lights also feature infrared light settings. On low output, the Inforce WML produces 25mW of 850nm light. The high setting juices up the beam strength to 75mW of 850nm light. When I got in touch with Abner from Inforce, he graciously sent me two of the Inforce WMLs, one in graphite, and another in FDE (Inforce also offers a “sand” color option, if you like that better).
I already mentioned the white light/IR options and brightness, but let’s dig deeper into what goes into Inforce’s lightweight lights.
