Swedish Military Flashlight

Try as you might, but you will never find a military flashlight as cool as the Swedish military flashlight. Gone are the old angle head flashlights that once populated surplus stores. Way has been made for a new standard. And with an on-off switch that doubles as a signal push button, Morse code has never been flashier – pun intended. This, of course, makes no mention of all the other cool features.

The Swedish military flashlight is one of the more interesting military surplus products that have come through the Keepshooting.com warehouses in recent memory. As noted, all flashlights are brand new, unissued Swedish military surplus. They even come in their original packaging. As such, you need not worry about faulty wiring, blown circuits, water damage or any other malfunctions that could keep you from enjoying the product.

Formally, known as the ficklampa 3, or "torch 3," the Swedish military flashlight is a standard issue piece of equipment for the Swedish army. It is housed within a plastic case that measures approximately 4.25 inches, by 2.5 inches by 1.5 inches. It is powered by two standard C cell batteries and includes a spare bulb within the case.

Upon receiving your flashlight, you are likely to notice the presence of three slide levers located on the front of the case. These levers are attached to two lenses and a shade, each of which is capable of manipulating the light emitted from the bulb. There is one red lens, one green lens and one blackout shade. The blackout shade is designed to obscure the light emitted from the bulb. Additionally, there is a leather strap affixed to the rear of the case that measures approximately 1.5 inches wide. Aside from providing a belt loop, this leather strap also features a button loop at each end that makes attaching the flashlight to a jacket very simple.

The most interesting feature found on the Swedish military flashlight, however, is the on-off switch. I know that sounds odd, but hear me out. The on-off switch on the Swedish military flashlight is not just a fully-on, fully-off switch, though it does provide that function. It also serves as a push button on-off switch, meaning that it can be used as a signaling device. By turning the switch a half turn, you are able to send out a series of pulsing lights in Morse code.

5 bucks is a great price for this. It's got lots of interesting features. The casing is plastic and maybe a little fragile, but it can easily serve as a morse code signaling device or red light. Not too bright, but you can replace the bulb if you'd like - it might be more expensive than the actual flashlight, though. Review by Andrew (Posted on 3/8/2017)

Recieved one of these as a gift from a friend, and couldn't complain! Great little flashlight, the switch/button on top works great, and shines pretty bright for its size. Buy them while they're this cheap! Review by Walther (Posted on 2/11/2017)

Always wanted one of these. On sale and bought two! Use one as a goto truck flashlight. The other to do my nightly chores. I had my wife sew two buttons to some elastic strip. I fastened the strip to the two leather straps using the button holes. I can now carry it on the back of my weak hand, freeing up both hands. Review by Dan R (Posted on 2/9/2017)

I bought several of these for my kids. I had a crookneck as a kid playing outside at night and thought this would be a good cheaper option. My son loves it, you don't need to unscrew anything to change out the colored lenses -- just flip a switch and you're in green or red. Very unique light.

It would also be a great signal/survival light.

Like a Volvo: it's boxy but it's good. Don't know why people are talking about installing a brighter LED bulb...I'm guessing it's designed to be not too bright. Buttons nicely into a swedish zeltbahn tent, btw. Review by John (Posted on 9/17/2016)

Very neat! I got mine today with my order, it's different than I expected. The extra bulb is actually held inside the case in a little storage area! I also like the shades and the button loop leather piece, it's going to require modification to use but I really dig it! Review by Edwin (Posted on 8/25/2016)

We have 2 adventure oriented boys. They've had a lot of fun with these; flashing secret codes that their mother and I can't decipher. A nice retro chic kind of thing. Review by William (Posted on 7/1/2016)

Got 2 of these, one for me and one for the wife. Plan on replacing the issued bulb with an led equivalent. As is it is a great light! Just need to figure out to attach it to my jacket for 'hands-free' use. Review by Kenneth (Posted on 3/3/2016)

This flashlight is a very useful item for numerous occasions. Small, lightweight, and compact with a surprisingly bright beam. Three way switch, off, on, and push button mode. The red and green slide up lenses are the best as you don' t have to change them out, just push up,or down. Price is right. Review by Bill (Posted on 11/3/2015)
