Gerber Recon Flashlight

SKU #: Gerber-22-80016
MSRP: $37.80
Engineered for the tactical enthusiast and soldier alike, the American made Recon series of products are efficient and versatile. Rugged yet lightweight, both are made of sturdy aluminum. Various lens and lumen options are available, depending on your needs.

If you think the concept of multi-tasking is overrated, don't tell it to the guys who developed the patent-pending Recon. Because this long-awaited L.E.D format lets you choose from four different colors of light, depending on your needs of the moment.

The official name for this proprietary technology is D.I.A.L., which stands for Diode Illumination Adjustable Lens. Basically, this new design lets you dial in the color that'll serve you best: White for general situations, red for preserving night vision, blue for identifying fluids, and green for map reading.

It's all powered by one AA battery you can anticipate long battery life which come with the Recon. It weighs just 2.6 ounces. Yet it delivers a military ton of task-specific light, right when you need it.

    is this flashlight compatible with a remote on off switch for use mounted on a rifle

    Gerber does not make a remote on/off switch for this flashlight. Any other brand of remote switch would not be designed for use with this Gerber Recon Flashlight.
