General Description

The M14E1 Aiming Post Light is a battery-powered LED-illuminated device. The aiming post light aids in identifying the location of the near/far aiming post during night and low light operations. Using proper procedures, the operator will align the sight unit (M137 Panoramic Telescope) on the aiming post light to orient the weapon on the azimuth of fire. The M14E1 Aiming Post Light includes a domed push button to toggle among green, red, and off. In addition, it has an auto-off feature to conserve battery life.

The housing of the M14E1 is machined from aluminum A356-T6, a particularly strong, durable and corrosion resistant alloy commonly used in aerospace applications.  This material replaced the less expensive but also significantly less rugged plastic polymer used on previous versions. The M14E1 Aiming Post Light is constructed in accordance with the applicable MIL-SPEC.

The M14E1 is typically used for artillery related operations but can be used in any application where it is necessary to mark aiming post lights.
