Good deal on tactical flashlight?
 
Smith & Wesson MP8 Tactical CREE LED Flashlight for $49.99 (MSRP of $119.95)

Have been looking at picking up a decent tactical flashlight for the house. Is this decent for $50 or is there something out there better in that price range?

Thanks!

Probably just a relabeled china piece.

Surefire is a safe bet.

I personally just use the big Maglight LED without the reflector.

$20 each on sale at Christmas at Lowes and they are all over my house.

JMO.

PS - I do have a Glock GTL21 light on my Glock also.

right, cause you have to be stealthy on your way to the breaker box.

If your flashlight uses CR123 get rechargeable ones

Incredible

OP. if it's just gonna sit at home check out the Streamlight Polytac LED and the slightly larger Polytac HP, both use CR123 batteries and are a pretty nice light for the price, $35 on amazon when I got mine. it'll light up to 40 yds nice and bright, and after that it'll illuminate things enough to see them in the dark. but it the house you can light rooms with it.

I've had mine for about 4 months with no complaints and only changed batteries once.

Jesus...that TK70 is nuts! Kinda want one myself! It kinda looks ridiculous though and maybe a little unwieldy

JonJon 08-08-2012 07:34 PM

Just got the TK35 and LOVE IT.

Then.... I saw this... I gotta have it

Where's that credit card at....

back to the OP - for $50, I would rather spend a few more and get a Surefire.

Chooie 08-09-2012 09:01 AM

Don't waste your money on that S&W light. For the same price range, I'd get a FourSevens Quark Tactical.

Your choice, AA or CR123.

Try this on for a superlight...
