The light on top is nothing to get exited about. Something I bought on ebay. Probably one of 300 million made. The lower one however is an Arc4 which in itself isn't rare but the battery tube that is attached is. It is a 2x123 tube. I believe it's one of about 12 made.
The PD and LunaSol series use the same body type. It is not just a clicky, but a 2AA clicky. I have large hands. It is difficult to press the PD switch without the light slipping out of my grip. The 2AA body did two things: 1. Extend the grip surface. 2. Use everyday common batteries. It is easy to do with a machinist friend!

This is a great thread!! Like a trip down memory lane.
only 5 where made...
The Original Mclux1, not really an rare light in terms of looks and function. Just really old "museum" piece Don't know how long it will last, the LED is shifting. It was auction for funds to OceanPlanet run by Don's friend for sail around the globe races.

Think about it... a 2 stage light is all you need.
WOW a McLux...
Anyone ever hear of an "ACR model 101"?
I think this light was made before alot of you were born!
Early 70s, or even late 60s, it may be one of the first lithium battery lights sold to the public. Of course it's not an LED, but, get this--It still comes on--with the original batteries!! It doesn't seem to have been designed to be reuseable. There are two odd embossings on the bottom-"Normal turn on time may increase to 20 seconds" and--"On life-10-20 hours-Storage life-5 years" It's 47 mm dia.X 88mm long ( 1-7/8"X 3-1/2") Chromed PLASTIC!
No, of course it's not bright, it comes on with a dull kind of "Habanero-Orange" glow.
Too bad I can't seem to post a photo of it here. If someone could tell me how, I'll take a photo or two of it

One word Wow.......these lights are just awesome.
That's it! Thanks for the info.
Toohotruk, Thanks for the posting info, I'll try to get a photo of the 39 year-old batteries heating the filament.
That would be cool!

Love those Mega Micro's. Definitely one of the best looking rare lights imo. Short and powerful, natural HA. Wish I would have picked one up.
they mostly come out at night, mostly.
Yes this is a real beauty...
Here are some quick and dirty shots of some of my rare ones:-
That Proton King1 is really awesome...
Definitely one the most rare and impressive SureFire collectables in the UK!
That thing is awesome!
Beamshots are necessary!
