  1. Sorry if this is in the wrong area.

    Im looking for a decent torch for urban ops that fits onto the SA80, im after something that gives good illumination and isnt really too bulky. Must have a decent price aswell. Anybody know of anything that might fit that description.

    Thanks in advance
  2. If you need a torch on your gat you'll be issued with an LLM, anything else in my opinion would just make you look chippy s ****
  3. LLM's are bright as fcuk , quality piece of kit
  4. carrots help you see in the dark too and can be used to CQB after they have hardened for a bit

    Mini maglite + duct tape
  6. I remember through my training having to tape a maglite to the handguard. It worked well then but I have no current need for a LLM and haven't been issued with one on ops. However do they get issued for routine training? I only ask because I imagine plenty of people using LLM on PDT and ops but coming back and having to take a retrograde step for a normal training year.

    Edited to make it clear that this was a mini-maglite ratther than some thousand cell monster!
  7. You used to be able to get a figure of 8 adaptor for mini maglite to barrel.
    Think it was soldier of fortune that sold it????

    With all these new torches on the market the issue maglite was always handy with a bit of black n nasty :? no need to buy one when you got it issued.
