Torch

Damn it, but nicely.

I had just finished modifying a torch that that had previously been IFR but was now white light and mounting it under the Alecto 5 - although it has too much power really but possession is....when my step son turned up with a rather nice present. It is now IFR AGAIN and attached to said present. Consequently, could anyone kindly give me the nod for a reasonably priced torch - I haven't a clue as the technology has left me behind - with a 25 or 30mm tube which is capable of throwing a beam, say, a true100 yards. I'm obviously not going to shoot the Alecto that far but need to ensure that I can see the target perfectly clearly through the red dot sight at 25 yards in a black out.

Many thanks.

Would this be any good for rats at night or do you need infrared?

I really do have to stop spending money I have both NV/IFR and TI  for spotting and so this will have to do for a while and is a new venture.

We managed OK 65 years ago with a Cadet Major and the head of a 25 candle power torch wired up to Father's hearing aid batteries. :good:

That's it then, another use for the air rifle this winter for the dark nights 🌙

May I ask how did your father hear without his batteries? 🤔🤣

If you research aids from the '50s, you can see why when I say that he didn't wear them (he got too close to a big bomb a few years earlier). Mainly night fishing back then and the same torch set up was also used for this. It saved a few coppers and we could then buy an extra couple of yards of this new fangled mono.
