Thank you. I meant the US manufacturer part. I couldn't find Made in the USA advertised on their website.
I'm not throwing shade at them... i browsed their flashlight products and was just curious.
For non-Surefire, McGizmo made several lights with a push activation like that. Lunasol 20 is a great light, and even switches between low/high depending on how far you push it.
You're right, and very often we ask for a particular thing because we can't think of any other possibility so hopefully he finds the help he needed here in the thread and makes a decision that will work best for him.His 1st post leads me to believe he only wants a momentary on so that the light doesn't stay on when accidently turned on in his pocket.
If that's the case, and he's not a super-hard-tactical user, then a twisty might work great.
Push a little for low, and all the way down for high. Really an ingenious mechanism, and utter simplicity itself, although I'm sure it took him a good long time to work it all out.I keep forgetting that Don is more of an artist while also an engineer, once again I couldn't find any proper description for that light...
So how does it switch between modes? Like the SureFire EDCL1-T gaspedal...?
This description makes me even more certain that depending on what you're willing to spend, you may find perfect satisfaction in one of the McGizmo classics or an HDS light. I've got both and would absolutely think of an HDS Rotary as perfect for your needs.I have a job function where I use a flashlight approx. 30-50 times during a working day, but only a second at a time, maybe even less than a second.
I only have one hand free to take the flashlight out of my pocket and operate it.
In addition, my job function also involves a lot of physical movement and walking around, which is why the flashlight can easily be switched on by accident.

I ended up carrying nothing but two of them all the time now, largely for the same kind of reasons; momentary light needed on a regular basis, and both of the my other favorite lights constantly coming out of my pocket with dead batteries due to accidental activation.
Definitely take a look at the HDS Rotary, if you haven't already, and find out why it's one of the most well loved lights in the forum.
It is a very interesting flashlight. In fact, I have already looked into it and find it very interesting.
Neither route is cheap, but both are such satisfying lights and there is more than one reason that the older McGizmo lights are definitely worth looking for.I am willing to spend a lot.
As I understand, McGizmo unfortunately no longer makes flashlights with this feature, and I'm mostly to new flashlights, but I'll certainly look into HDS.
Same momentary works with all their flashlights. But the 17500 has the larger of the heads so it has more output.It is a very interesting flashlight. In fact, I have already looked into it and find it very interesting.
But I didn't realize the tail cap switch had a gas pedal function much like my surefires. Many thanks for that information.
