    Default Flashlight, Penlight Style, Pilots / MS21998-2

    Are these lights rare, or are there shloads of them around?




    I got this one when I was in the Navy. I issued flight gear, but we didn't issue these old lights. It was in the back of a drawer, and I helped myself to it.
    Pilots and aircrew all carried Mini-Mags.

    I got mine in the Air Force in the 1960s. Not sure how rare they are now days.

    I found a couple of these at an Army Surplus store in the early 70's. I carried them until they wore out or I lost them. Haven't seen any since then.

    IIRC I have seen plastic versions of these lights when I was active duty at a army surplus store.

    A friend of mine showed me this light. I gave him a Tektite L222 bulb to increase its run time and output.
