Raven Concealment Systems After-Market Light Clip
Raven Concealment Systems has released an after-market pocket clip that is perfect for EDC lights. The replacement clip was originally designed for various SureFire models (see below) but the list of compatible lights is growing daily.
Designed to fit most one-inch body Surefire flashlights (P-series and G-series, not the Z series), the RCS Pocket Clip orients the light bezel-down inside the pocket. The only real drawback is that it may prevent constant-on functionality in some lights.
The clips are manufactured from a high-strength spring steel and include a removable O-ring for those who use the ring technique when shooting. The O-ring itself s a removable Nitrile ring that gives all the functionality of a grenade ring while providing the break-away safety of polymer. To add the RCS Pocket Clip to a 1″ body SureFire or other compatible flashlight, remove the tailcap, batteries and o-ring seal from the light and slip the RCS pocket clip down over the threads. Re-assemble the light and it’s good to go. (Note: each clip comes with a finger ring, or you can use any other preferred lanyard on the built in lanyard loop.)
Now, RCS is well aware there will be many other models and makes of flashlight the RCS Pocket Clip will fit. To address this, and begin compiling an exhaustive list, they are offering a prize to those who determine a new breed/style is compatible. They are offering a $100 RCS gift certificate to the first person to e-mail in a picture and description of a a particular (exact) make and model flashlight. Winners must be the first persons to offer photographic proof of compatibility. If interested, send image to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can check their Facebook page to see what lights have been announced so far.
The RCS Pocket Clip retails for $14.99. Order yours here, and note: due to the nature of its products, RCS has a close, long-standing relationship to armed professionals from a number of agencies and units that, due to their mission, often operate in non-permissive environments. In those conditions these particular specialist often operate with their equipment concealed. Rumor has it there was an informal round-table style “sit-down” over a few beers yesterday wherein some of those professionals talked with RCS about tactics, tendencies and personal perspective on the best way to operate and deploy gear. If all goes well you will see a recounting of that conversation exclusively here on RECOILWEB in the near future. Stay tuned.
