Item # MBPKG-WM-AX3S, Maxa Beam Crew-Served Weapon Light (CSWL) System, Army

The 12,000,000 CandlePower Maxa Beam Crew-Served Weapons Light (CSWL) is designed for use on heavy weapons such as the .50 caliber machine gun.  All features of the CSWL including power level, beam width, and strobe are remotely controlled from the rear of the weapon.

The Maxa Beam CSWL has been tested and approved by the U.S. Army and is listed on the Army's Common Table of Allowance (CTA) under NSN 6230-01-588-8523.  For more information on the Army approval, please visit the CSWL Press Release.

The CSWL is a completely redesigned version of the traditional Maxa Beam Searchlight.  The CSWL features a shock-mounted front lens and lamp design, an on-board toggle switch for full-off control, a locking infrared filter, and a completely waterproof housing.

This system is configured to meet the requirements of the U.S. Army.  The system includes a CSWL, 850nm infrared filter, remote control, carry case, and all necessary cables to power the CSWL from either (2) BA5590/U military batteries or a 28VDC military vehicle's universal NATO slave receptacle.  Please note that the MBA-ATSSMKVIII Picatinny Rail mount for the M2HB is sold separately.
