ACSA NightKit

The ACSA NightKit was a unique concept of an add-on module that turned a conventional flashlight into a modern multifunction aiming device. The device could fit a variety of widely used flashlights including SureFire and Pelican models. The concept didn't pass prototype phase and was disbanded.

The device was designed to fit any weapon using a standard rail adapter and integrated the following modules:

  • Visible laser

  • IR laser

  • IR illuminator

  • Mode selector switch

  • Boresight elevation and windage adjustment

The NightKit is the first concept of its kind and was designed to offer a cost effective solution to multifunction aiming devices. It could be quickly and simply attached to a flashlight unscrewing the flashlight's head from its body, inserting the NightKit module in between, and screwing back both ends of the flashlight to either side of the NightKit. The NightKit will then utilize the flashlight's own standard activation switch and batteries, and mitigating the need to procure additional batteries.

The device has the following operational modes:

  • Visible laser only

  • Full visible mode - visible laser and visible illuminator

  • IR laser

  • Full IR mode - IR laser and IR illuminator
