    Great price, but....
    I know that at the price point that I purchased this ($39.99), I shouldn't have too many gripes, but here are a couple. The end-cap lacks a momentary-on function, which can be frustrating depending on your intended applications with this light. The light is very bright and the multi-modes are nice, but in tactical situations, lacking the momentary on function is a big deal to me. Secondly, this light gets very HOT with minimal use. These two things alone have made this light unusable for the applications I had planned, HOWEVER...it is solidly made, very bright and a great value and for all those reason, I'll find a use for it and plan on keeping it. I would also recommend it, but be mindful of the application for which it is intended.
    Prosbright durable inexpensive

    No wonder they are backordered!
    This is (without a doubt) the best flashlight I have ever owe=ned. bought 2, demonstrated to my Security guards, BOOM, 4 more were ordered within minutes, then I went camping........... showed it to the camp host, he ordered 2 the next morning, we showed them to the camp rangers, and they all (6) had to have one also, lights up the whole campground from one end to the other! Fantastic light! The ONLY downside I found is that it does get hot after prolonged use.....

    Bright, but on/off switch is too basic
    I prefer the switch to be 'pressure sensitive' so it doesn't have to be depressed fully to be on. This is helpfully when you are trying to be discreet with lighting. This model requires you to fully depress the switch past the 'click' to get the light to activate.

    LAPG Recon C1 Flash Light
    Feature for feature and ounce for ounce, a great light. Awesome output in both of the two highest settings and the 20hz strobe is definitely disorienting. I own weapon lights and flash lights from Surefire, Streamlight and others but, I'm very much impressed with allots aspects of the LAPG Recon C1. Great performance and quality at an even greater price point. Thank you LAPG.

    This flashlight gives off an incredible amount of light, yet is lightweight and small. I am very impressed with the bright white light on both high settings, and the low settings rivals most conventional flashlights.
    ProsInexpensive Well made, aluminum body Uses (2) common CR123 lithium batteries
    ConsI don't like having to flip through each of the light settings to get to the low setting, but that is common with flashlights of this type. I wish it had another button. It would also be nice if it had a button so you could signal using the low intensity beam. Overall, I am a happy camper with this light.

    Great Value!
    Purchased as a secondary duty light for work, I used it multiple times out doors and clear buildings. Got one complaint, the low setting shuts off after a few seconds, sometimes it will turn back on if you shake it, high and medium modes work fine. I use a Blackhawk CQC holder and it fits, however you have to put a little effort to insert and draw due to the anti roll tail cap. Not as smooth as my stream light.
    ProsCost effective and decent quality for the money. The holster it comes with looks decent and comes kind of close to matching my nylon duty belt.
    ConsLow setting not reliable, anti roll tail cap snags pulling out of Blackhawk CQC holster and a little effort needed to reholster it.

    Yes, but you'd need a mount. The Safariland RLS would work assuming your gun has rails. Better yet though, get a Surefire or Streamlight made for that purpose and mount it. Then you'll have a better switch too in a solid package.

    how does this light compare and what are the key differences between it and the L1?
    9 Answers
    Well I don't know honestly about that particular model since this is my very first purchase from LA police gear. But I can tell you this. I just won a flashlight from 5.11 with 638 lms and this Recon C1 is by far a much better light. Now I know I'm comparing two separate companies but let me explain. I have a lot of experience with lights. I do product reviews for companies. This light feels great in the hand has a blinding 850 lm high setting with a strobe feature that is unbelievable. The tactical tail cap switch Is very user-friendly when switching modes. And at The price that they have it listed for you should just buy it because you will not go wrong with this purchase.

    I don't have an L1 but I can tell you I use this light for police work and it is great. Very bright small size comes complete with holster and battery . Very nice light you can't go wrong
    Allen
    on March 10, 2016
    from jacksonville, FL
    Biggest thing for me is the size. The L1 is 6 1/8 inches long vs the C1 at 5 inches. 6.1 oz vs 4.3 oz. Next is the momentary on for the L1 vs push to click on for the C1 before moving through the modes with momentary on. The beam on the L1 is tighter in the middle thus brighter in the center. The C1 seems to spread the light out more evenly thus less focused. The crown on the L1 is smooth vs the C1 with a crown for better use as impact weapon or DNA catcher. For EDC I go with the C1. For home defense I go with the L1. Both come with holsters but the C1 is easily concealed in the jacket pocket.
    Wu
    on March 10, 2016

    The C1 is slightly brighter, the two main differences are of course the size/shape and the ui. It always comes on in hi-med-low-strobe, with no memory.

    from SFV, CA
    I have both and they're great lights. The brightness is close, but you can tell the L1 is a little brighter and throws a wider beam. I would recommend both if you can afford them. The C1 is a great EDC light and will fit in your pocket. It runs on CR123's. The L1 is rechargeable and is a great torch, but is not pocket sized. It's great for around the house, camping, etc. I can see out 200-300 yds with it. Both are great for the price!

    I can't help you with the direct comparison. However I have used this light as a back up for my regular work light a Nitecore P20UV, when I have forgot to bring it. It serves the function well. I like the size. It seems well made. For the price it is a great backup.
    Raymond
    on March 10, 2016
    from Conroe, TX
    The L1 is about 20% larger than the C1. I have a big hand so it's not an issue (though the small size is kind of nice for a pocket carry). For me the biggest difference between the L1 & C1 is the bezel switch. It allows you to go from a high output/strobe mode to a high/medium/low output mode (controlled by the tail switch). I don't need the strobe mode normally but it is nice to have, and having the second mode cycle between high & strobe is what I would want. The C1 cycles through hi/med/lo/strobe. Both appear to be very well made. I made a quick test on the L1. I turned it on high. After five minutes the grip was warm but I still could place the bezel on my lips.

    on March 10, 2016
    from heading to Pittsburgh
    I've been carrying the Recon C1 on my duty belt for about a month now. I like it. It has a very good light power at 850 lumens. I've dropped it a couple of times with no problems. The C1 is an on/off system, so it takes a full click to turn off or rotate through lighting options. This is a nice, tough light that has performed well so far. However, I'm thinking of getting the L1 for duty work, and making the C1 my off-duty utility light. The L1 is rechargeable, has longer battery life, slightly more lumens, and is large enough to get a solid grip on in all kinds of work conditions. This is a personal preference on my part, but for only $15 more the rechargeable feature is a huge deal for police work.

    This one does not have a momentary on feature. You have to click to turn it on. You can soft touch it to switch between the modes though and as long as you wait a few seconds before turning it off, the memory in the chip should return to the last mode you last used before turning it off.

Does the RC1 operate only by the tail cap switch or is there a side mode switch? Will the RC1 tail stand? Is the reflector smooth or orange peel textured? Are the lumens and run times based on CR123 batteries? Is the lens coated glass or plastic? Is the only access to the batteries through the tail cap?
    1 Answers
    The factory has not tested this with the 18650 batteries, so it would void the warranty if you were to attempt to do so. We aren't even sure if they would really fit this flashlight, could be too long or too thick for it. There is only a tail cap switch for this model. Yes, it's not very sturdy but you can stand it on it's tail. The reflector is smooth. Yes, they are based on the CR123 Batteries for run times. The lens is plastic. Yes, the only access to the battery is through the tailcap.

    4 Answers
    We haven't had this flashlight tested as far as the LED goes for recoil weapons, so we don't think that this would work too well for that. It's less than an Inch for the Bezel, and most flashlight rings for rail attachments are 1"diameter rings, so i do not think there is one that will work for a weapon. The best i can do is check with other customers who have purchased this, which may not be much as of yet, to see if they have any experience with that just yet.

    I can not answer this for certain because the item has not yet arrived. But I do not think that this was designed to be attached to a rail. I will reply again after I receive the light, but I think that this was designed to be a small but powerful carry light. There are many other light options for rails with and without remotes.

    The switch is on the tail of the device, not remote. It cycles consecutively between High-off-Med-off-Low-off-Strobe-off. You have to go through the whole sequence to get back to High. The main body diam is ~ 0.92 - 0.93" and knurled. It has non-adj focus but a tight beam.
