Item # MBS-430-WA-X2, Maxa Beam 2nd Generation Crew-Served Weapons Light (CSWL)

A newer version of this product is available. Please see MBS-430-W4-M for the most up-to-date model.

The 2nd Generation Maxa Beam Crew-Served Weapons Light (CSWL) is a lightweight, high-intensity weapon-mountable illumination system with an unparalleled output of 12,000,000 Peak Beam CandlePower. The CSWL has two light intensity settings and a powerful strobe with a constantly varying frequency for maximum optical disruption. The CSWL features a motorized beam width adjustment that allows the user to vary the beam from a 1° spot to a 25° flood using a wired remote control.

The MBS-430-WA-X2 CSWL has been tested against the stringent product evaluation test requirements set forth by the U.S. Army’s PM Soldier Maneuver Sensors. The CSWL is ruggedized to withstand the recoil and vibration of a .50 caliber machine gun and mounts to any MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny Rail without the use of tools.

The MBS-430-WA-X2 Maxa Beam CSWL is part of the MBPKG-WM-AX3S Crew-Served Weapons Light System For full system details, please visit the MBPKG-WM-AX3S page.
