I was at the Outdoor Retailers Show earlier this month and the new BSA Summit Bechtel Reserve Adventure Camp had a booth. Had a nice conversation with one of the reps and he gave me this flashlight as a give-away.
Would like to get some more but not at $14.88 and $7.50 shipping. Any ideas on OEM manufacturer of this unit?

Not a bad looking little host though, assuming it's P60-compatible. A light like that would be about $150 at a local gun show! Those are always fun to go to and to look at the flashlight vendor tables. In this case, just get a P60 host and build it up with a better drop-in than that.
Perhaps I need to move to TX. I bought a table at a show here in Indiana last fall and sold 1 light. Everyone was complaining at the high cost of Zebras. The only other flashlight guy was selling $20 clones. He was doing alright but not enough to merit the ever coming back.
Yeah, at the local shows here there's usually only one guy who's a serious rip-off artist selling flashlights. He's selling C8s and P60s for outlandish prices. I usually end up looking at a $100+ dollar C8-style light with an XR-E emitter and comparing it to the output of my XM-L EDC and commenting to a friend on how my light only cost about $16... He probably doesn't like me very much.
