Olight PL-2 Valkyrie Review

The PL-2 is brightest weapon mounted light from Olight with a peak output of 1,200 lumens. It casts a long focused beam rated to 235 meters on 2 CR123A batteries. Two choices of mounting plates, Glock and 1913, and a QD clamp allow it to be mounted to just about anything with a rail.

Mission First Tactical AR-15 upgrades: spice up that base AR.

A question we get a lot here is “I bought a base AR, what can I do to spice it up that won’t break the bank?” Some options are very easy and cost effective.  The TP15MRS drop in rail, for example, completely changes the front end of your rifle and has an MSRP of under […]
