I’ve realized that I post here far less than I should. Recently a few members of AR15.com who I respect greatly have discovered that blogs are a better format for the information they are attempting to share. That has encouraged me to update this blog more often and I am adding Nick and Ryan’s blog (Science of the Gun) and Billy’s blog (AZ Rifleman) to the links of this site.
I have posted some useful threads in the Technical Forums at AR15.com, so an easy way to populate this blog with relevant info is to consolidate the information those discussions have driven.
My first attempt at this will be my review of the revamped Inforce WML.
I had a third gen. Inforce WML in the sand colored polymer. I knew that there had been reports of the sand polymer cracking, but it was a screaming dream on Amazon compared to the black and FDE WMLs and I needed something with white light and infrared (IR) light for use with night vision.
Anyways, the polymer begins to crack near the bezel, I finally get around to contacting Inforce on September 30th, and after a few exchanges of emails that day I have a RMA and their customer service rep has asked what color light I want for my replacement since they are no longer making lights with the sand colored polymer. I think I returned the cracked light on October 3rd or 4th.
October 14th the replacement shows up. They sent me a Gen. 4 WML to replace the Gen. 3 WML and the Gen. 4 is a noticeable improvement over its predecessor. The toggle switch between IR and Vis feels tighter and locks into place requiring slightly more force to change. The safety now locks into place with an audible click sound. The threads are metal as opposed to the polymer threads of the earlier WML.
