Equipment for the TX40 Flashlight

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

COAST's TX40 LED FlashlightThe TX40 is a powerful, professional use LED flashlight that is easily adapted to a variety of uses and conditions. Its sophisticated optics system produces a bull’s-eye spot beam, which throws light as far as 518 feet (158 meters), while also providing an outer ring of scattered floodlight.  While light output is the first consideration for any worthwhile torch, the TX40 LED flashlight also offers several different accessory options that you might not know about.

First, you can attach the TX40 to the undercarriage of a rifle using our Universal/Picatinny Rail Mount (7733RM). Actually, since the 7733RM has a one-inch interior diameter, you can use the rail mount to attach any flashlight with a one-inch diameter to your rifle. The rail mount is constructed from solid aluminum; it is rugged enough to last a lifetime.

Today we’re focusing on two LED flashlights that were designed for professional use: the A9 LED penlight, a favorite among inspectors as it is slim enough to tuck into a shirt pocket, and the HP3 Focusing LED Inspection Light, popular among mechanics as its beam may be focused into a high-power spotlight beam with a surrounding halo of usable light. To help you choose between these two similar LED lights, we’ve compared some of their major characteristics in the handy table below. (more…)
