Manufacturer: Rico Tactics (Hong Kong)
Type: Tactical Light
The Rico Alpha 9 Tactical light has been available for a few years now. Many reviews already exist but the real draw for me was how popular the Rico Alpha 9 has become in the Real Steel Gun community. I have experience first hand how durable these are when mounted to AR-15’s. The manual states they will work on guns up to 7.62×51.
This one is the newest generation of Alpha 9 that features a new pressure pad with guard and a paddle switch.
The Rico Alpha 9 is constructed with a high quality polymer body and aluminum skeletal frame. The light is impact resistant from a 2 meter drop and is water resistant. It has a super strong 3mm poly-carbonate lens and full aluminum lamp housing with striker flashlight head and butt cap. Powered by three CR123A batteries, the 250 lumen bulb will deliver blinding illumination. The small LED search lights are functional and provide enough light to search a small room without giving up your position with the main light.
