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.  One caveat, this is a full size weapon light similar in size to TRL-1 so most sub compact handguns are a no-go.  There just isn’t enough rail room under the front of shorter handguns.  It has no problem on the front of a G19 or most similarly sized handguns.

If you are wanting a smaller light better suited for subcompacts, we looked at the rechargeable 400 lumen PL Mini Valkryie a couple of months ago HERE .

The review for the Pl2 Valkryie can be found on the 13C YouTube Channel .
