That’s a 50W HID handheld searchlight generating 5,200 lumens of light. It takes lessons learned from developing crew served weapon-mounted lights (CSWLs) and applies them to building a very serious handheld searchlight.

5,200lm not be all the lumens, but it’s sure a helluva lot of ’em.

The man holding the spotlight is Ken Good. He’s the fella who developed it. Good is a former NSW professional who recently celebrated his hunnerd and eleventy-first birthday; you may remember him from such classics  as Force On Force Training Before It Was Cool, The Strategies of Low Light Engagements, Combat Concepts Inc., the Surefire Institute, Strategos International, Progressive Combat Solutions, Clarity or Chaos and of course his trademark staunch chin. Anyway – he’s always had tactical fetish for light, as you can see for yourself by checking out Night Reaper Systems.

FYI according to Good, the battery on that light above will last 80+ minutes with the light turned to high beam – that’s pretty sweet, whether you’re using it work a crash scene, search for a missing person or just trying to get a look into the upstairs sorority house window.

Night Reaper develops and manufacturers a number of crew served weapon lights, LED handheld lights and related products. Here’s a quick look.

Things have certainly come along way since dudes like this snake-eater carried a 30 lumen D cell strapped to his machine gun.
