ModButton Lite is a smaller lighter weight cousin to the original ModButton. The switch features the same momentary only activation as the original ModButton. It also features the same high power cable and switch from ModButton but in a slightly smaller package without the integrated mount. The switch is made from injection-molded plastic and fully potted to ensure a durable long lasting switch.

ModButton Lite utilizes a patented Unity Tactical design which supports power delivery needed by the next generation of high output weapon lights. A Unity built Surefire® compatible cable lead allows ModButton Lite to be backwardly compatible with all Surefire® Arisaka and Modlite Scout bodies as well as Surefire UE and DS00 tail caps. If constant on is a requirement we recommend using a Surefire DS00 tail cap which can be found here.

One problem that exists today is older legacy switches are not able to pass the current needed to run current and future generation lights. These older switch designs do not allow Modlite light heads to run at full power.  Typically these switches reduce output by 15-20%. ModButton Lite utilizes an updated plug design as well as improved electronics that allow the Mod Button Lite to output at full power so all the lumens and candela can be put to good use.

ModButton Lite is waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes and features more durable buttons than many competing pressure switches on the market.

The package includes the switch PIC mounting rail and mounting hardware only. An MLOK adapter kit is available.

    Modbutton was exactly what I was looking for. Very small to leave a lot of extra property on the rifle. Cable is very stiff and stays in place. I picked up the m-lok bracket also. Wish it came in OD but I rattle canned it to match the other furniture. Big Tex was excellent throughout the entire process. Thank you.

    The ModButton Lite is much smaller than my old SureFire SR switch freeing up a lot of my 12 o’clock rail. Works as expected. Keeps my rail uncluttered and with the 4.5” cable allows for perfect placement for momentary ambidextrous thumb access on my rifle. As usual shipping was quick from Big Tex, thanks guys.

    Feels so much better vs the surefire sr. Saves space and comes in fde. Easy install and very secure.

  4. thegunguy4118 (verified owner)

    So much better than Surefire switch. Very slim design and takes up less space on rail!

    Loved it so much, bought another one! Well made, good cable length and doesnt hog up rail space

    Excellent button. Snappy button makes for easy use. Works way better than an Surefire pad
