Review of the Baldr S Tactical Light from Olight

The Baldr S Tactical Light: SUPER BARGIN

If you are a conceal carry owner, you can really understand the advantages to being able to see what you are aiming at.

Many conceal carry owners are now opting for a weapons-mounted light, not only their AR but also on their everyday carry pistol and even home defense shot gun. There are a lot of options out on the market today. Some are so cheaply made, I wouldn’t put them on an airsoft gun, and others are so expensive they far exceed the value of the weapon they are mounted to.

In comes the Baldr S Tactical light from Olight. I must admit, when they sent the light to me for review, I was little skeptical…especially with a price-point under $90 retail. However, it didn’t take me long to realize this was a super value and there has been a lot of product study, shooting study and development that has gone into this laser light combo.

The Slide Rail Mount is one of My Favorite Features of the Baldr S Tactical Light

Cons:

If I had to pick just one thing: the toggle switch from moving to laser and light to just laser or light only is difficult to locate. But, seriously I’m being super picky.
