Does anyone have one of these? I have the APL for my G19, and I like it. Was thinking about picking one up for the SBRs, but for just a little more I could get one of the Arisaka Defense lights.

I have one I picked up the end of last year when DSG had them marked down to $89. Street price today is around $140. It's a nice compact light weight unit that's easy to mount. So far it's worked perfectly.

I have some of the older ones - the only thing I don't like is the lever to switch from constant to momentary can be a little loose and move on it's one, but it doesn't move much / affect function really.

For the price and light weight, it's great.

That's my only real complaint with the Gen 1 WMLx, and I'm glad to see it was addressed on the Gen 2s. I've had issues before with the overly-floppy toggle switch being accidentally knocked from momentary to constant.

I have Inforce WMLs on four rifles currently. I'm a big fan of the design. Two of mine are early Haley Strategic WMLs (which are momentary only) and two WMLxs. All are Gen 1s.

I don't currently have any Gen 2s, but I'll be swapping at least the two early Haley WMLs to Gen 2 WMLs in the coming months.

Cool, I think I'll grab one now and see how I like it.

Thanks all!

I have a 2nd Gen. Inforce WML on my AR. I really like it.

My light came in today, but while I do like it, I'm not sure it's going to work for me. Since I have an M-Lok forearm, I had to get a 5-slot rail section to mount the light. This puts it about 1/4" off the forearm. I can't really come up with a place to put it that allows me to actuate the switch easily.

And Arisaka Defense has sold out of their 300 series lights which was choice #2. LOL

What rail system are you working with?

I put an X300 at 12 o'clock on my 11.5 KMR-A SBR and on my 16" I use an offset BCM mount that puts it at 11 o'clock, since my arms aren't long enough to put it at 12" with the longer rail.

I have mine on IWC Thorntail rail mounts. Mounted on the top rail, it puts the light at 11:00ish. Makes it easy to activate with the support hand thumb (or even the strong hand thumb if needed, if you stretch) but keeps it out of the 12:00 sight line. And it doesn't require mounting a Keymod or MLOK rail section to the side of the handguard, which as you mentioned, adds too much thickness for my purposes. Plus, you can mount the light even further forward than the handguard, which keeps barrel shadowing to a minimum.

Here's one example:

I have two of them, each mounted on 6920s with magpul SL furniture at ~10 "o" clock. They are very intuitive and comfortable to use. Very light weight. Very ergonomic. Use only 1 CR123 battery. There's not much to not like about them and are a fairly good bargain for a $90 sale price. I wouldn't quite feel comfortable paying $140 for each, but I suppose they're still worth it at that price point.

The biggest question that I still have about them is durability. I would love to hear from someone who has knocked them around a good bit to see if they've held up to some use, abuse, and mileage.

I know RogueJSK makes good use of his firearms and accessories. If his early generation models of Inforce(es) have held up without blinking out, the newer models should do just as well or better. They're built heavier and are supposed to resist body cracking that has been known to afflict earlier models.

I've got an SLR Rifleworks ION M-Lok forearm. The only rail already on it is at the 12 o'clock position at the front and back of the forearm.



I already have an extra Arisaka Defense M-Lok Scout mount. On the .300 upper, I have a Streamlight Protac on the same mount. I'll probably get the AD 300 series light in FDE (to replace the Streamlight on the FDE colored .300) and most likely a black one for the 5.56 upper.

FWIW, the WML seems pretty sturdy. I suppose the bail that 'locks out' the light switch could be busted but the rest of it feels 'beefy'.

One minor issue on the early WMLs was cracking of the plastic around the mount screw. But I don't know if I'd call that a design flaw. Some folks were really cranking down on the thumb screw, and cracking the plastic as a result. That area has been reinforced on the newer WMLs, but it's not necessary to go all Incredible Hulk on the thumb screw anyway. The way the WML's rail mount is designed, the screw itself doesn't do much to actually hold the light to the rail. It's more of a backup failsafe, to keep the latching lever on the mount from being bumped and disengaging. Finger tight is fine.
