Hi, after seeing members collections, i find a few members share the common interest in flashlights (especially tactical ones) as well. Lets share what we have and why we find them better.

i use Maglight 4Ds LED (Also supplied is a normal Krypton bulb). Quite powerful beam although the flood setting can get blury. Good for long distance focused beam.

Battery life is great at 3-4 hours. Solid aircraft grade aluminum construction, you can actually use it for self defense as well. Downside....... it is big and heavy. It cost around Rs. 2500/=

I have a small maglight for emergency use. Uses one AAA cell, I wear it around my neck all the time, it's beam is focusable. For home use I have Eveready, it's big uses three D cells. beam is powerfull upto 40~50 foot. keep one single led thumblight with key chain all the time.

AK47 +1, which model ?
Thanks Glocky. I can't exactly remember, I think it is something like G2-Nitrolon. Will post a pic of it soon.

Thats the plastic/polymer version of their classic 6P, yeah a good trusty model. Good choice

Glocky.... I'm still wishing the combo model, with laser beneath the tactical flashlight. I think it is called the M6 something. Any whereabouts of this on Pak Mithi?

G2 is a hand held flashlight, i presume you are now looking for a weapon mounted laser/light combo ? Or do you have the G2 mounted on a long arm ?

I have seen a couple of models by Insight here in Karachi, retailing between 35k-45k

Well, perhaps there is another version of the G-2 that is hand-held. This one is weapon mounted by ordinary picatinny rail. I will post you the exact model number as well as pic on this thread soon, coz the camera was lent out today. This one is about 6 inches long, 1inch in dia, and as you mentioned som kind of plastic/polymer. It's mounted on my AK along with 2 lasers and one red-dot. It comes with pressure pad that I have adhered to my forward grip. Will post you the pic without the gun of course!

Thanks. No need of my picture posting any longer. That's the one! I have it mounted with special mounts. It has adjustable beam focus. Good find by you!

Glocky

You're welcome, pls post pic of mount if possible. would be interesting to see. Is the pressure switch attached to the tail cap via a cable ?

AK47
17-05-2009, 01:24 AM
Exactly, at the tail cap with flexible cord. If you don't use the pressure switch, you can adjust the tail-cap to such a position that just a slight touch will make it flash as long as you keep touching it with little pressure. Otherwise just turn the tail-cap to full tightness and have a constant beam. Will post the mounts, sure.

Yes its a nice little pocket rocket, the good thing about it is that it can run on AA batteries as well as rechargeable ones.


The ultimate hand held torch would have to be this one though

these are heavy lights, intended for search and rescue missions. For normal home use smaller lights especially if they fit in your pant pockets are more practical.

In the case of the wolf eyes model yes I would agree with you, but as far as the fenix and the nextorch are concerned then they would be ok for E.D.C (nochex is my E.D.C) as they are small enough to carry in a pocket, also the fenix has adjustable power settings so you could have it on low for use inside the home and then turn it up to turbo if you needed to scan a larger area

I find the Fenix TK10 or TK11 R2 to be excellent EDC flashlights. 240 Lumens in high mode. Can also be mounted on long weapons
