Olight announced some killer new models at the SHOT Show back in January and one of the most anticipated models has been the M1X Striker (called the M18S Striker at SHOT, I believe). I'm happy to say that the M1X has been shipped to us and we should have them in stock in a few days!

The M1X is a dual switch light, with a rear switch that turns the light on and off and a side switch that will switch modes. An aggressive strike bezel is on the front of the light, giving you the ability to strike fear into melons and 2 x 4s everywhere.

These are in stock and ready to ship!

It's pretty unfortunate that they decided to do away with the tail-standing tail cap.

For this series I get why they don't tailstand. I really want an M10 like this

The M1X is a first and foremost a tactical light and tactical users very rarely request tail standing. I'm hoping we see a more general purpose version as well, but I guess that would be the S30/S30R.

The S30 is nice but I'm more of a two switch light fan.

Is the crenelated bezel removable? If so is there a smooth bezel to put on?

It's the same bezel as the S/M series, so we just need to get the smaller bezels in stock. I'll get some on our next shipment.

The bezel diameter of the S/M series is 23mm while the diameter of the M1X is 26mm.

Sorry, I meant the S30.

Turns out that the bezels are glued on, so it might be a no go. I'll see about getting a custom run made with a smooth bezel.

Mode spacing is nice, especially cause you can get to all the important ones to me on the tail cap. except moonlight you have to put in into moonlight by holding the secondary and pushing the rear clicky in. but once you do its memorized, so when I turn it on that way with the rear clicky it comes on in moonlight, double tap rear for turbo, triple tap for strobe.

Thanks for the feedback :) Not too sure about the UI but happy enough to order one now. Cheers.
