From the Manufacturer

This flashlight comes with a high intensity krypton gas lamp for optimum brilliance and extended range. With a twist of the flashlight head, you can change the beam from spot to flood, positioning the light where you need it most. It's anodized inside and out for improved corrosion resistance and durability, with a self-cleaning switch that virtually eliminates oxidation. The high grade O-rings at each opening ensure resistance to water and shock while the low resistance circuitry allows a more efficient use of the batteries. there's an extra lamp in the tail cap to keep you out of the shadows, and this flashlight is serially numbered for identification purposes.

Product Description

19.50 in. of high-strength aluminum alloy case in black. It features adjustable spot to flood beam rotating switch andplete O-ring seals. Has two high intensity White Star Krypton Gas Lamps for enhanced brilliance and extended range with 36 hours lamp life and 16 hours continuous battery life and 20K Peak Beam Candlepower. It requires 6-D Cell alkaline batteries. Weighs 50.00 ounces with batteries.ATTRIBUTES Batteries Included: No Bulb: Krypton Power Source: D x 6

I've owned one of these for almost 10 years now. It is the best flashlight I ever purchased. I bought it when I was in college and worked as a Student Auxiliary for the college Police Department. My flashlight has suffered a great deal more then most flashlights can handle. It's been dropped, run over, used as a hammer, used to pound in tent stakes, constantly taken on road trips, I can't even remember all of the things I've done to it. All I can tell you is it still works.
To keep it working well you should occasionally apply a small amount of Vaseline to the threads to keep the threads and O-rings lubricated. If you do this it should last you a long time.

Maybe you're a cop or security guard, maybe you're a guy who lives in a place where you can't carry a firearm, maybe you're just someone looking to fill the 'use of force' void that exists between shooting someone the bird and shooting them between the eyes. Any way you look at it, lets not beat around the bush here... Anyone buying this light is doing so for one reason only, the 'light' aspect being totally secondary to that one reason. It's a club that doubles as a flashlight.

So, how do we judge it on the objective criteria?

As a whuppin' stick, it definitely works- so well that some 'kinder, gentler' Police Departments don't even allow it anymore. Kind of a bummer that they discontinued the thinner 6C; barring finding one second hand and paying a real scalpers price for it, the 5D/6D is the pretty much the only 'in production' option in the Mag line for a "big defensive flashlight" but that's OK. Unless you have very small hands, the 6D is perfectly controllable.

It's big. Really, really big. The light itself is about 19.5" long- a foot and a half- in total. When weighted down with cels, it's heavy, too.

You will want to tread lightly with this, as it definitely would generate enough striking force to fracture a skull, break bones. Be damn sure you're legally justified to use it, if you ever do use it. You can hurt someone with it. It's does cut a pretty intimidating profile. Walking around with one, it's almost as if you're carrying a bat. In some situations, this is OK. In other situations, where drawing attention to yourself isn't the desired outcome, you'd definitely want to leave this one home (in this regard, probably worth noting that given its weight, this is essentially a two handed club.

I have three of these flashlights and they are fantastic. I keep one in the garage (see accessory section for mounting bracket), one on the fireplace mantle, and one in my car. They all work perfectly, project a bright, adjustable beam, and feel great in your hand. Not only does it work in normal conditions, but the gaskets and buttons do a great job keeping water out - I live in the Pacific Northwest and use it in the rain frequently with no problems.
This is the same model that many of our local law enforcement types use day-in / day-out. I'd image that may a miscreant has received a "bop" on the head with one of these babies and will think twice before resuming their layabout ways.
Get one of these with three fresh Duracell's and you're set. This flashlight will last you a lifetime!

Once in a while you'll encounter a product that's so far out front that the others should pick up their marbles and go home. Mag-Lites are the standard bearer in the flashlight category. (Were it not for the picture, you would hardly know from the product description up there that we're talking about a 4-cell flashlight.)
The primary job of a flashlight is, not surprisingly, to create light. Mag gets more light out of their flashlights than anybody. Maybe it's the bulb, or the reflector. But NO flashlight will come close to putting out as much light as a Mag.
Another quality we hope to find in any product is functionality -- does it work every time, or mainly when you don't need it? I can't recall more than a time or two that a Mag failed to come on. I've dropped them from heights that would have destroyed anything less and they still worked.
I have an old black AA-size Mini-Mag here that spent about a decade in the cockpits of airplanes -- the poorest lighted places this side of the Black Forest -- so it got a world of use. The place on the end cap for attaching a lanyard or hanging ring is worn completely through. But the little guy still works like a charm.
The switch on this D-cell model is under live rubber; it has a solid click on and off. The beam is adjustible to a sharp spot. You'll probably want to set it there and leave it alone.
I am certain that batteries last longer in a Mag-lite. The only explanation for this would seem to be that a tiny bit of battery drain occurs on some others. Before I became 100% converted to Mags I would too often pick up a flashlight that was full of dead batteries. I can go for years without changing the batteries in a Mag-lite.
All Mags are rugged.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: 4-D Cell
My husband keeps this by the bed ready to shine it into the eyes of any intruder. This is not only a flash light, it could be considered a weapon.

This is one heavy flashlight which could almost be used as a mini weight bar. The light turns on with the press of a button and you can adjust the light beam to focus in or show a wide beam to see your way while walking in the dark, say while camping.

Doug's review will tell you the details, I just wanted to tell you how much my husband loves this flashlight. Do all guys love this Mag-lite brand? Must be a Tim the Toolman power light thing!

For women, I recommend the mini Mag-lite, it is cute and is much lighter to carry around. You can keep it in the car or in your purse.
