Mag Magcharger. This is probably the best flashlight Mag ever made, and it's still my favorite police rechargeable. Came out around 1982 to do battle with Streamlight's SL-20. It's a beautifully engineered light, and incredibly durable:
Now a few of the new lights.
Bianchi Super B-Lite 2D. This was Bianchi's final flashlight design, from right before they left the market around 1984. Shows some Streamlight influence, but a little more compact:
Super B-Lite 4D. Funny story: A surplus company was selling these things at discounted prices a few years ago. I mentioned to a fellow collector I was planning on buying one, then mysteriously the next day their entire inventory had been bought by someone with his initials.
Spec-Lite 6D. The Super B-Lite designs from when Bianchi bailed out were bought by an outfitting company and produced as Spec-Lites in the 1980s:
Grendel Grendelite A-2 8AA. This is the weirdest and one of the rarest flashlights I have. Grendel was an '80s firearms company known for high-tech but poorly designed and built handguns. What you have here is a high-tech but poorly designed and built flashlight. It takes eight AA batteries, and has two brightness settings via a resistor:
One of the switch end:
Those Grendelite a2, do you you kow if they were also made in a olive color and plastic case. I lost my old one and it looked exactly like these. Same belt clip, 8 AA, switch looks identical, only one ouput. The lens and bezel looks the same. Twist off lens and insert batteries. Body was ribbed or fluted.
I had carried mine with a maglite krypton bulb, was very bright for the time.
I have a 3 D cell Mag Lite in the blue like yours, and bought it in a truck stop in 1982-83 or 84.
Still have it. Put an lED in it, and it serves as an emergency light
