The larger more powerful Clulite Rechargeable LED Master-lite Supreme impressed many, as did the Pro-Spotter that followed, but for the air rifle hunter the compact MG125 is possibly one of the most versatile gun mounted torches available. I mention this as the unit is a virtual ‘mini-clone’ of its larger siblings, having very similar features and ideal for ratting and medium range rabbiting. So this level of performance from a torch only measuring 130mm long and weighing 221g plus battery and mount is certainly worth consideration.
The full kit includes torch, battery, mains charger, vehicle charging lead, dual gun mount clamp, remote pressure switch, tailcap and wrist strap.
Although not as neat as some scope body tube mounts, in my opinion this is the most versatile, not only due to the ball headed grip clamp having an unrivalled degree of adjustment but also the dual mount facility fitting both 1” (25mm) and 30mm scope tubes.
The ‘torch’ has a 1” body tube tapering forward to the LED housing and a ridged 1 ¼” front lens/reflector. The latter can be used to alter the width (and spread) of the beam. The ridging isn’t only to aid grip but configured to take the optional push on red filter kit. Manufactured in aircraft grade aluminium, its black anodised for extra protection. To ensure full waterproofing, rubber seals and rings are used at any point the unit can be unscrewed for either changing battery, or switch.
The battery supplied is a 3.7V 18650 PCB/BMS Li-ion battery, ‘a new generation of rechargeable battery’ with a built in (BMS) ‘Battery Management System.’ This is relevant because it means it doesn’t have a ‘memory’ so is capable of taking over 600 full recharge cycles. Each full charge gives 3-hours on continuous full beam and charging time is only 6hrs.
It uses a single pre-focused 3W CREE LED rated at 125 lumens - on full ‘un-filtered’ white beam you’ll easily spot rabbits at 120-yds. Using the unique scope mount, position the ‘torch’ onto your rifle in a position that suits and unscrew the end cap which holds the rubberised push/button on/off switch and replace with the remote pressure pad switch. This has 4 ½” of straight lead from the end cap to a short 1 ½” coiled section, that then changes to a 4” straight run to the remote switch. Using this you can access modes of full beam continuous, low beam, ‘dab on’ for momentary use and also it obviously switches the torch off. A mighty bright light and hi-tech gun mountable torch that many airgun hunters would be wise to have in their kit…
