Olight PL Turbo Valkyrie - An Illuminating Marvel for Your Handgun
If you're in the market for a weapon-mounted light that delivers in every aspect, look no further than the Olight PL Turbo Valkyrie. I recently acquired this flashlight for my P80 g17 handgun, and I must say, it has exceeded all my expectations.
First and foremost, the brightness of this light is absolutely outstanding. This outshines any handgun light I own. The incredible 800 lumens of brightness are not to be underestimated. Whether you're using it for self-defense or precision shooting, this light will ensure your targets are illuminated with remarkable clarity. And when it comes to range, the PL Turbo Valkyrie can cast its beam up to an astounding 560 yards making it an excellent choice for shooters who demand exceptional performance in low light situations. The Valkyrie allows flexibility in mounting options due to its innovative mounting design. It features a sliding notch that sits in the middle. This allows the user to move the locking notch, accommodating a much wider array of rails. Both the Glock type notch as well as an M1913 Picatinny notch are included. This light fits every glock I have perfectly. It fits best on the G17, but did great on the G19 and surprisingly fit my G26.

This light fits every glock I have perfectly. It fits best on the g17, but did great on the 19 and surprisingly fit my 26. The attention to detail in the design is evident in the buttons, which have a very satisfying clicking feel. I am also a huge fan of the matte black finish, it gives it a nice sleek look. It hasn't shown any signs of wear after carrying the past few weeks, which has left me astonished. Durability is another standout feature of the PL Turbo Valkyrie. I don't plan on dropping my gun anytime soon, but if it would happen, I'm confident that this light would still work flawlessly. It truly is built solid as a rock. This level of ruggedness is essential for a weapon-mounted light, as it ensures it can withstand everyday carry and intense training sessions.
The one aspect that I'm not the biggest fan of is the process of activating the strobe feature. I found it to be somewhat hard to activate, unless I had a perfect two hand grip. To activate it, you need to simultaneously click both buttons, which can be slightly challenging, as it requires two hands to enable the strobe function. I wish it could be activated by holding in one side for a few seconds instead. However, I found that for most situations, I would have both hands on the gun, making it not the end of the world. Despite this small annoyance, it doesn't diminish the overall quality and performance.In conclusion, the Olight PL Turbo Valkyrie is an indispensable accessory for any handgun owner. Its exceptional brightness, durability, and user-friendly design make it a must have for both seasoned shooters and newcomers alike. It has certainly enhanced my shooting experience and boosted my confidence in low-light scenarios. Don't hesitate to equip your handgun with the PL Turbo Valkyrie, you won't be disappointed.
