The Inforce WMLx looks almost identical to the previous WML, except they offer one more color in the WMLx body. The WML came in Graphite and Sand, the WMLx adds Flat Dark Earth(FDE) to the mix. The WMLx is 5.34” long and weighs only 4 oz. They almost bumped it up to 500 lumens, with a run time of 2 hours. The Inforce WMLx is powered by 2 123A Lithium batteries. There are a couple more features that were added to the WMLx; it now has a continuously on mode and strobe mode, as well as the standard momentary. You can activate the continuously on mode and momentary mode with a flip of lever on the side of the WMLx. When the lever is continuously on mode, you can double click the power switch and the strobe mode will activate. The strobe on this flashlight is pretty neat too, the strobe sequences isn’t a constant strobe. The speed of the strobe is always varying, which I think would make it a little bit more effective.
I put the WMLx on my ZERT AR-15 Pistol, which is mainly used as home defense and CQB training. While 500 lumens may be a little bit of an overkill, I really like the output of this light. When you add that with the strobe feature, which will work wonders in a home defense situation, I am really liking this light. My goal with this Pistol was to keep it as light as possible and this light really helped achieve this goal. I have not read anything bad about Inforce products, and my next railed handgun is getting the APL.
As a side note, my main gripe with the Inforce lights is the coloring on the bodies. The Sand color is an awful(in my opinion) mustard yellow body. The FDE body isn’t quite a match for the Magpul colors but it is pretty close. That would be only real complaint with about the light bodies.
