I like the basic design though I'd like to see it re-interpreted in aluminum and maybe made in the 2x C cell form factor.


That would be nice but probably expensive. Also a 2 or 3 CR123 version would be nice.

I'm not afraid of expensive as long as I'm getting what I pay for. I still don't think that particular wish will come true though. On the other hand yours may have! Check out the First-Light Tomahawk. It's an anglehead that runs on 2x CR123.

If its under $20(I consider that reasonable because Mag makes a 2-C flashlight in America for $16.99) it wouldn't be bad.

I have some potted 1274 Bulbs. Would these fit in the bulb holder? I might have to pick one of these up, the bulbs are just collecting dust.

Couldn't wait any longer so I grab my father-in-laws light. It worked with both my potted 1274 and potted 1164 bulbs. Now if only it weren't for the dang heat!

I have a glass lens in mine, I wonder if the plastic bezel can handle it? Also, I wonder how many amps that switch is rated for.

No idea about the switch but I think more than the bezel, I would be worried about the little plastic retainer that holds the bulb into the reflector.

The ones available here in singapore go by the brand of "D&G" like the fashion brand, but no relation i believe.

They are also standard in C size. Ive put in a ROP-hi bulb and running two C li-ons...works great!

When I have installed MAG LED upgrades in these I just removed the plastic bulb holder and packed aluminum foil around the bulb base. It's not pretty, but it works.

I have 4 glass lenses that'll fit just fine. 1mm too small but they seal fine if centered when assembling. Send me a PM and I'll ship them to you for $1 postage. I only have 4 that I'm willing to part with. If you love your fulton angle head, shoot me a PM.

Can you measure your lens and get back with me?

The camera lens I bought from Ebay just barely sits on the seal all around. Is this how yours fits?

If you have an extra, I would be in for that. Been wanting to mod one of my Fultons into an ROP for a long time now.

Fulton is bad for the ROP for heat dissipation reasons. Though my Fulton was an ROP for many months with no damage, I never ran it longer than 5 minutes at a time.

I like the glass lenses for their scratch free properties and I have one (possibly two) left. Just send me a PM and it's your's for a dollar.
As far as size goes it's 42mm exactly. That's 1.5-2mm bigger than the camera filter glass I was using before. its much easier to get this lens to seat properly than the camera glass.

I'm doing this as a service to my fellow Fulton lovers so don't ask if you don't have a fulton anglehead FFS.

PM sent! That would be excellent! The camera glass I have measures 39.8. :(

I've seen C cell reinterpretations *cough* knock-off *cough* on fleabay recently & multi-AA variants too, I've also noted local Firefighters using them as well though brightly coloured models (in this case fluorescent yellow) :thumbsup:


I don't have one yet but have been searching for a Vietnam era Fulton for my flashlight collection (though I'm tempted to get a new version as well) ;)

Read post #6 for the link.
You can get them here for $11.55 shipped. You just can beat that!

Thank you for letting us know.
lovecpf

You need to try the ROP bulbs!

Go easy on the runtime if you don't have a metal reflector and glass lens though. The high bulb chews up Maglite plastic reflectors for breakfast. The low bulb isn't so bad.
