Night-Ops® has developed a revolutionary new pistol light; The Xiphos™ NT (pronounced Zi-fohs, with a long “i” and long “o”) “NT” (Next Technology), continuing the Night-Ops tradition of naming products after the military tools that changed history. The original Xiphos was a double-edged sword used by the ancient Greeks in battle. It was designed to be used with one hand and is thought by many to be the forerunner of the Roman Gladius. The Night-Ops Xiphos™ NT also has single handed multi-function operation and programming function changes. Additionally, the powerful beam pierces through all adversaries and obstructions in its path. Therefore, the name, “Xiphos™ NT”.
The Xiphos NT is a 3-volt rail-mounted LED pistol light boasting over 65 lumens of blinding white led light at full power. The digitally controlled “smart” circuitry has been programmed to perform different useful functions while at the same time allowing ease of use, under duress, by the end user. These functions include the same “strobing” feature as on the Night-Ops Gladius enabling the user to disorient a potential adversary and/or “visually distort” the perception of what a potential adversary observes. The “smart” circuitry has been programmed to optimize light output for the entire life of the battery giving an incredible 2 + hours of continuous light output. The Xiphos NT is designed to be activated with a single hand OR both hands using the ambidextrous digital pressure switch. The switch design is very versatile and intuitive. It can be activated either laterally across the “X” axis of the light (left to right or right to left) OR across the “Y” axis (forward to rear).
The revolutionary design of the Xiphos NT features a NEW patent pending “Cam-Clamp” mount that allows the user to quickly install this light onto almost all open and closed rail weapon mounts including picatinny rails, universal rails, and many other types of rail mount designs without the need of any tools. This clamp eliminates the need to slide the light down long rails, but installs directly in the desired location. The Xiphos NT has been designed to mount onto a pistol in an offset manner allowing it to be holstered in the newly designed “light mounted” Level 3 SERPA™ holster system. The SERPA holster technology is rapidly becoming the most popular duty, concealable and tactical holster system on the market for law
enforcement, military, and sport shooting enthusiasts. Designing the Xiphos NT to work in conjunction with the SERPA system makes this light/holster combination the most secure, versatile and most effective light/holster system available, where weapon security and rapid weapon accessibility are an absolute must.
