Cheap flashlight that does the job

Hey, I searched around for flashlight threads and all I saw was 60-300$ flashlights

Although I know you get what you pay for, I don'T want to spend money for a airsoft flashlight.

I saw someone talking about cheap flashlight awhile back that where not bad at all.

SO, can someone point me a not bad flashlight with pressure switch (and gun mount if possible) for under 40$ ?

Dealextreme C2 cr123 flashlight

And it's pressure switch

Those are what I use as a weapon's light

Buy 1 or 2 sets of rechargeable cr123's and a charger and you're in business!

I have this flashlight and highly recommend it to anyone. It is permanently attached to the rail mount but comes with a pressure switch.

It does not actually have IR, the IR setting is a strobe.

It is the most concentrated beam from a flashlight less then $300 I have personally seen and is around, 150-200 lumens, not sure exactly.

This one is great and very well made, worth way more than the 17$ they ask for. I own two of them, I have been gaming one of them for over two years now and it still works perfectly. It also seems to last forever with these batteries:

http://www.dealextreme.com/p/trustfi...s-2-pack-20392

I have charged them only twice in two years, the flashlight will literally last for months on a single battery. I use this flash light a LOT, especially when going camping and during field work. It lasts through rain without any problem, it has been shot, bumped, dropped, and it still works perfectly. It fits in all flash light mounts I tried and the best part is, it's almost as strong as a car light.

That seems a great deal... can you tell me what size I need to buy for the Rail mount ?

Any rail mount that can fit a 1 inch diameter flashlight.

I have one for $34.95 110 lumens tail push button LED comes with the CR123's and I have been using it for about two years now and sold many to other players and trades. Never a complaint.
Cheers

I have this one on my rifle. Every connection has an O-ring so it seals out moisture, and it's fucking BRIGHT. I don't think it's a true 300 lumens, and I wouldn't recommend storing it with batteries inserted, but it still works great, and can be used as both a weapon light, and a hand light.

I'm necroing this post to see if anyone has new suggestions. I bought two flashlights like Deadpool suggested, but the damn pressure switch is cheap as hell, passed through 3 of them in a year! So I have 2 nice flashlights, but I can't live without a pressure switch in a game!

Dont buy a piece of shit. Get a piece of real kit. It will last you forever and is designed to take abuse.

and personally have this mounted on side of my p90, pretty freaking bright for a tiny flashlight, has o-ring seal and button on rear. No other modes through
