The Insight Procyon (attached to the S&W revolver) is a multiple function weapon light delivering 125 lumens for 90 minutes. Better yet, it fits in older holsters designed for the popular M3 weapon light. Below it is the handheld Regulus, a multi-function light delivering a maximum of 160 lumens for 2 hours or 300 hours on the low light setting. insighT inTo insighT LighTs Clint Smith rom my perspective, Insight TechGear has a relatively low profile in the industry even though they have been remarkably significant contributors to the well being of the military, law enforcement as well as civilians with their safety equipment since their inception in 1988. Moving continuously forward, Insight has brought a new line of equipment forth under the banner of Insight Tech-Gear. Insight weapons mounted light systems were for years marketed by others. It is refreshing to see Insight step forward and get credit where it is due for their new products. The new Insight XTI Procyon—that takes its name from an F5 spectral star—has an anodized aluminum body that makes for a solid light system. Bearing the original slide lock attaching system, the Procyon will mount to all standard weapon rails. Another very strong selling point is Procyon’s size and shape outline will fit the existing M3 holster carried by many police officers today… so no buying new 66 F holsters, yet older light systems can be updated! The Procyon is truly ambidextrous and its multiple function system allows for constant, momentary and strobe options to be deployed by the shooter. On the tech side, the run time is 90 minutes, the LED output is 125 Lumens and it draws power from two 123-lithium batteries. Along with the new Procyon, the Insight people have also introduced the Regulus—another star thing—LED handheld flashlight throwing a 160 lumens for 2 hours on high or more than 300 hours on the low-light setting. The Regulus stays with or exceeds the current market trend by bearing a momentary, constant strobe and dim settings all set into one end cap push button. The head and tail of the light are crenulated which is a fancy word for lots of dips and edge like things… sort of like the GG&G add on tactical thump-and-gouge widget. So all in all, the Insight people deserve a job well done nod and a looksee by you if you’re in the need of a weapons or handheld light. These, they have done right! insighT Tech-gear 23 inDusTriaL Drive LonDonDerry, nh 03053 (877) 744-4802 www.insighTTechgear.coM WWW.GUNSMAGAZINE.COM • JANUARY 2010
