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.

Size: 6 Cell in Blister PackColor: Black
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.

This flashlight is around 19.5" (49 cm) and weighs 3 lbs (1.3 kg) with batteries. It is "heavy duty" as described and a typical Maglite construction.

It comes with, or should come with, a Mag-num Star Xenon bulb with a spare in the cap. This is the brighter Maglite incandescent bulb (White Star Krypton being the other).

LED technology has made incandescent bulbs seem out of date and not worth getting. Indeed, I had (not having an incandescent flashlight for a while) looked at LED replacements for this model with the expectation I was going to get one after receiving this light.

However, I have found a replacement completely unnecessary. This light is very bright, and chasing higher lumen ratings is all the rage. But in reality, there is more to judging a flashlight than the amount of lumens. The focus and flood settings are quite comparable to the best LED flashlight I have which uses standard alkaline batteries. The colour of the light is different: but I found little difference in practical light use at night in the fog and mist. Both illuminated a distance fence to a comparable degree (albeit, with different beam colours) and the flood and focus were comparable. I know that the LED flashlight (a Maglite Pro LED 2d) would drop in lumens as it ran as well (by design).

There are four factors which comprise the FL1 Standard: Beam Distance, Peak Beam Intensity, Run Time, and Light Output. Lumens is the unit for the last factor. The Maglite website does not yet include the ANSI FL1 Standard information for this light, but other sites show the lumens to be 136 with a Krypton bulb, with a throw (beam distance) of 295 meters.

Are you sick of flashlights that die just when you need them the most ? Then get this flashlight. I finally got tired of spending $5 on several plastic flashlights that always would break. The final straw was when I was in the attic of our church building in Houston, Texas (read VERY HOT!). I was making my way back to the ladder when my latest Home Depot special (only days old) died on me. I had to feel my way back. Well that did it ! I bought myself a MAGLITE and have not been disappointed. I have dropped it repeatedly and it keeps working. It fell off the hood of my car one night and the light stayed on. It does have some cosmetic damage from my abuse but IT KEEPS WORKING. Some neat features include the adjustable beam size (from wide to narrow), that tough case and the included spare bulb. When I consider how much I spent over the years on "cheap" flashlights I realize I should have bought a MAG a long time ago. All in all I highly recommend it.

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.
