DefendTek PL-1 and PL-1 review

DefendTek is a small start up company that is working on becoming a player in the gun world. With most small companies they have products that are hit and miss. But the two products they sent me most recently are two big hits in my eyes.

The first product is the TL-1 red laser, this laser is ok, it is a strong laser, it is accurate when adjusted and has held up on my 6.5 Grendel and my 5.56. My only complaint is that the pressure switch is a bit squishy and not as reactive as some of the other laser available but for a budget home defense laser it should be fine. For ten bucks and the budget minded person, this is a perfect match.

The second product is the huge hit in my eyes. It is the PL-1 tactical pen. I have never been one for tactical pens, I just wasn’t willing to pay the cost that some of the pens are going for. DefendTek jumped in and bridged the cost with quality. Made out of aluminum, with a tungsten tipped cap that screws in place and creates a water tight seal around the pen keeping it safe from the ink being water logged. The back of the pen has serrations for self-protection, and a 60 Lumens led white light. The light is very bright, and I can attest to this because while ignoring the instructions I shined it into my eyes, I do not recommend this, it is a simple device a twist and the light turns on. This has been my fourth item I have gotten from DefendTek and this is by far my favorite item. The Tungsten tip is used for glass breaking and I will be keeping them in my vehicles as I live near large bodies of water and it would be perfect in case of an accident.

My final thoughts, DefendTek is trying to make their way into the gun community with affordable prices and decent products. If your interested it won’t be a waste of money.
