I like what I see on their web site and I want one of those Dorcy 1xCR123 lights, but they don't sell them up here in the (soon to be) frozen tundra.

I currently have 7 of those 9 LED 3xAAA plastic lights..they multiply like rabbits :)

Several members collect the Nichia 1AAA Dorcy. I would love to have at least 2-3 of the non-fish eye version... if I could find them.

I have a rare, black, Dorcy AAA keychain light with a reflector.

The other colors are far easier to find, and they all usually come with the fish-eye optic. (The reflector version is better).

Check out the link below for some of the Uber rare pics of this near-mythical light.

i have one of them and its a good little flashlight, but for $20 plus the money I'm going to have to spend on 123 batteries, the light itself could be brighter

Honestly, if someone gets into CR123 cells; it's better to save up for a light worth the extra cost of the cells. (Even if you buy Made in America CR123 cells, in order to save a bit of money).

For lights that take one CR123 cell, my Dorcy Super 1watt is nice.... My Novatac 120P is even nicer.

yea the Dorcy Super 1watt is what i have and it is nice, it just fails in comparison to my Dorcy K2 Luxeon, but i guess its not a fair comparison

They were on sale for half price and make decent emergency lights with their 40 hour rumtime. That and the Mrs. told me to buy more :)

I have yellow, blue, black (discontinued), and teal. Just need red and camo and I'll have a complete set :D

I've got one Dorcy (still starting out on that segment of my collection) that I reckon is quite nice (make a good mod host too), the 3xAAA 1w Luxeon light with tail clicky *cough* tactical *cough* sorry but that word gets overused in relation to flashlights IMHO ;)

Here's a dismantled picture of the light itself...

FWIW there's a new variant I saw in a catalogue recently not sure of the product number, anyway it comes with what appears to be a mildly crenelated bezel, tail switch, nylon pouch & better (Eveready) batteries @ $30.00 AUD most tempting :thumbsup:

I guess you haven't stopped by Wal-Mart lately. :)

I knew those pieces looked familiar. Dorcy Metal Gear.

Here's a review....
http://www.flashlightreviews.com/reviews/dorcy_metalgear.htm
actually i started a post in the general section of the forums for my recent trip to Wal-Mart, i dont go to Wal-Mart very often actually, mostly because my Wal-Mart sucks when it comes to flashlights, all they have is AA Mini Mags in one color, AAA Mag Solitaires in one color, some crappy Eveready flashlights and some ridiculously overpriced flood lights

I love Dorcy Metal Gears, my local warmart had them on closeout for $9 each about 6 months ago...I bought 4. For a cheap flashlight they are pretty bright, and they are really tough.

Does somebody have a picture of the package that the aaa dorcy came in.
Or is there a clone somebody makes? I have seen this light at K-mart in Ohio I believe, just wonder if it's the same one.
I have a few dorcy's They are nice for loaner lights. I also have the black metal gear it was 6 dollars at the mega-lo mart buy me.
