Who is Olight?

Olight is a company which primarily produces flashlights and other illumination devices. The company’s roots can be traced back to their founding in 2007.

Pistol light options manufactured by Olight can be had with or without laser sights. The addition of a laser provides shooters with another reference point when aiming. Compact and full-size lights are offered by Olight, providing customers with multiple options when considering a light. The Baldr line of lights produced by the company represent compact weapon mounted lights which can be affixed to a wide variety of firearms.

Simply put, the company offers a variety of lights intended for pistol use to appeal to a wide variety of shooters.

As far as lights for long guns and firearms larger than handguns go, Olight offers a wide range of product offerings. The company offers a product which bridges the gap between a grip and flashlight with their Sigurd line of lights. Essentially, this product will provide illumination and act as a point of contact on a firearm. More traditional flashlight offerings are represented by the company’s Odin line of products. These lights can be mounted directly to a firearm via a 1913 or M-LOK mounting solutions. Additionally, the Odin lights are compatible with the company’s pressure pads, allowing one to ergonomically mount an activation button for the light on a picatinny rail. Like some of the company’s pistol light offerings, these types of lights are also available with or without lasers.
