Bolt Action… Pen? FOURSEVENS Light

At first I was thinking, “What the Heck?” then the tacti-cool part of me set in and saw the light.

FOURSEVENS has released the “Bolt Action Light” a CR2 powered flashlight that easily hides in the pocket. The light itself uses a CREE XM-L2 emitter for up to 490 lumens of brightness. That’s quite a bit for a small light and great for EDC.

The light retails for $100.00 even and is available in black only.

Description (Courtesy of FOURSEVENS):

The Bolt Light is a special three-way collaboration between Fellhoelter, Tuff-Writer, and FOURSEVENS, with a unique and innovative user-interface. While most flashlights rely on a traditional push-button switch, the Bolt Light uses a sliding bolt mechanism, allowing you to turn the light on and off, or change modes, with an easy and natural swiping motion. With three brightness levels and four special output modes, the Bolt Light is versatile enough to meet the needs of a variety of situations.

    If anyone is considering a FourSevens flashlight, don't! I currently own four of their lights which are a Quark 123^2 Turbo, a Quark AA^2 Turbo, a Maelstrom G5, and a Preon 2. Every single one of my lights has had problems using appropriate batteries. The Quarks and Maelstrom have all had to have their tailcaps replaced under warranty at least once and one is currently awaiting another tailcap replacement as I write this. The Preon 2 has not had the need for any warranty attention but it's performance is flaky and sometimes takes some fiddling with to get it to work. I wouldn't trust it for anything more important than a "find the keyhole" light. They do honor their warranty and the turnaround and service is fine, but if I could do it over again I would just buy a light from a company whose product I could trust to work. Other lights that I own from Fenix, Streamlight, Surefire, and Walmart No-name have all worked flawlessly in the same roles in which the FourSevens lights fail.
