Insight Technologies' XTI Procyon

Insight Technologies' XTI Procyon

Insight Technologies' Procyon weapon light offers three output options with the flick of a thumb.

Insight Technologies has been making some incredible inroads into the market for handheld and gun-mounted lights and lasers. Its latest light, the XTI Procyon, is another high-quality addition to the line.

The Procyon is a weapon-mounted light with a rugged, lightweight housing of hard-anodized aluminum. It is meant to slide right onto any Picatinny-spec accessory rail, although a smaller latch bar comes with the unit to facilitate mounting it on guns with different rail systems.


The four-ounce light (with batteries) is waterproof to 30 feet and features a shockproof LED that puts out a blinding 125 lumens of white light. The back of the light has a pair of toggle switches for ambidextrous operation. Up is the constant on position, down is momentary, and tapping the light twice in either direction produces a disorienting strobe light.


I mounted the Procyon on a Kimber SIS I had on hand for testing. It slid right onto the rail and locked up nice and tight. Operating the light was easy, even with my small hands. I used my support-hand thumb to engage the toggle switch.

The Procyon is a rugged, well-made unit with more than enough light output to disorient or temporarily blind bad guys. If you're in the market for a weapon-mounted light, I highly recommend it.

KelTec P17 22LR Pistol – Feature Packed, Accurate & Fun to Shoot

If you're in the market for a 17-round, compact .22LR pistol that's feature packed, then the P17 is definitely an option for you. At less than 14 ounces fully loaded, and barely longer than a dollar bill, the P17 is concealable for pretty much anyone. The threaded barrel, Picatinny-style accessory rail, ambidextrous safety, ambidextrous magazine release and three (3) 16rd magazines come standard. That's a lot of value added in such a small package.
