    I got a great deal on these but ended up with more than we needed for the camping trip.


    You get 6 for 60 shipped via USPS do the math and you will find out thats cheap. (US Residents ONLY) I do not want to mess with shipping over seas.


    Paypal only gift or add 2.5% 24 I have for sale 24 that is 4 lots of 6.


    I really do not want to mess with shipping a single flashlight and I just want them gone.

    Do these have the colored filters included (ie. red and blue filters) that attach to the lens? If so, that might be worth mentioning because the red filters makes these flashlights excellent for inspecting prints in the darkroom during development/lith development.

    As EASmithV pointed out , they do indeed have the filters in the base along with the spare bulb.

    These are excellent flashlights! I brought one back home from the service 40+ yrs ago and it still works fine. The bulb or filter has never needed replacement. I just checked the spare bulb and it's still good too!

    Sounds like perfect if you have a Boy Scout troop :smile:

    I have one of these and they are far and away more solid than anything you could buy commercially for $10.
    Only drawback is the incandescent bulb, but LED replacements are available and will double (or more) your battery life.

    12 flashlights SOLD 12 are still available. They are great lights and you will never find them cheaper than this.
