ASP Rolls Out the Scribe

Armament Systems and Procedures' (ASP) original Scribe AAA light has become a mainstay tool in the company's international tactical-training programs, thanks to its combination of high performance and small size. The new DF variant of the Scribe pushes the output even further—to 350 lumens—while adding the benefit of Dual Fuel technology. It ships with a 10900 lithium-ion battery that recharges inside the light, or you can swap the rechargeable out for two AAA disposable batteries if you don't have time to recharge. Other features include a Double Tap low-light setting, a multi-mode tail switch with momentary or constant-on modes, a tricolor charge status and battery capacity indicator, and a tough new forged-steel pocket clip. SRP: $85.

The Scribe DF offers a low-light setting, along with a multi-mode tail switch with momentary or constant-on modes.

"Over the past year, we have been upgrading the vast majority of our lights to Dual Fuel, as it's critical to our primary law enforcement users that they always have multiple backups—backup flashlights and backup power,"says Michael Hess, ASP's vice president of marketing. "The Scribe took a while longer to engineer into the Dual Fuel family, as it requires packing a whole lot of additional technology into a light chassis that's not much wider than a .45 shell casing. But we're thrilled with the way it came out, and it was definitely one of the hits of our recent international sales meeting and our SHOT Show booth." SRP: $85. (
