VERY Nice Black U.S. Army Angle Head Flashlight MX-99/U .In the Vietnam era an improved plastic flashlight was introduced, the MX-99/U later upgraded to the MX-991/U. These flashlights were similar to the TL-122D (1940-1945), waterproof design with spare lenses and bulb in an extended base.
Most of these are marked with either G.T. Price or Fulton (ours is a Fulton) as the manufacturer.
The MX-991/U continued in use with the nomenclature "FLASHLIGHT: electric, hand, 2-cell, w/lamp and lens filter, w/o batteries, type I class A (21108) MX991-U" with NSN 6230-00-264-8261. Sometimes it is just called "Flashlight, plastic" or "Flashlight, anglehead". At some point a switch guard was added to the design.
Lens filters are available in blue, green, amber, red, blackout and diffusion to adapt to different conditions. The screw-on base, below the battery compartment spring, holds a spare bulb and below that spare lenses, in two sections that join together with screw threads. The flashlight is 8 inches long by 3 inches across the angle head. The tube diameter is 1 3/4 inches. The light is powered by two "D" cell batteries (not included).
This one is in Black and is a VERY Nice Condition Vietnam era Fulton MX-99U Right angle Military Flashlight.,It IS complete with an extra bulb in the bottom (there are no addtnl colored lenses however) and there is absolutely NO corrosion in the battery compartment (a common problem with these old flashlights from leaking batteries) or, under the bulb.
