  • Great budget incandescent light

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    -Good build quality

    -Assault corona

    -Comes with nice solid mount for 20mm rail

    -Comes with pressure switch as well as with a tailcap for on/off action

    -Takes 4 * 123A batteries for max power output.

    -Really bright high pressure xenon bulb!

    -Good reflector with nice spill vs throw combo.

    -Good for blinding fellow airsofters in night skirmishes!

    Cons:

    -The o rings get damaged after few times of screwing tailcap on and off because they tend to get caught between the threads.

    -A piece of isolation was missing from the pressure switch cable. So I could see few millimeters of exposed cables. Nothing little tape wouldnt fix.

    -Unprotected batteries tend to jump around the flashlight if you shake it violently.. not really a tight fit sideways.

    OtherThoughts:

    Light is really bright and quite compact for the light output it produces. At least with 4 * 123a batteries. Its cheap, fits nicely on your guns rail and you can use it while camping by changing the end cap.

    Bottomline:

    Overall I am very pleased with the light, and if I get frustrated from it draining power too quickly (bout 0.5h continuous runtime) I can simply order a drop-in cree module and swap em for longer runtime!
