Hey all,

During Operation Sharp Hatchet I realized that a personal light was important to have (especially for a weekend ex). So, I took a look online to see if there were any period types of FL that I could find that resembled the real thing. Well I found this Swedish Army FL and for me it's close enough to the real thing (in looks, and function). I think the only thing it lacks is a metal body.

Anyway here are a few pics, links and a video to explain more about the FL.

*Edit: In addition I do plan to paint and weather this item to make it look less new...

Thanks for looking!

Here are a few examples of the real thing:





Here is the one I bought:
