In version 3 of our tests, updated for Q2 2019, we concluded that the Fyland Tactical Flashlight, 1200 Lumens LED Flashlight... is the best tactical flashlight for the AR 15. With a strength of 1200 lumens and a 3 hour battery life behind it, it tops our polls. We also loved the slightly cheaper Ulako Green Red White Light 300 Yards Range Flashlight... for a red light output that was capable of hitting 5 hours of continuous use – perfect for night-time hunting.
Buying the best tactical flashlight for the money is more a challenge today with the dizzying lineup of choices and options. Get ready for sticker shock. You may see products that cost far more than you expect. We’ve spent the last six weeks of Winter 2019 in getting ready for 2020 hunting season, and have put together what we think are the best tactical flashlights out there today. Let’s review the specs and features you need to investigate before making your purchase.
