This is not my first MAG product, and overall the usual quality is there. Quality manufacturing, good clean light, brand name batteries included. I bought this light for my daughter to carry in her bag at college, and here is where I am disappointed. The activation involves twisting the bezel to get to the appropriate light setting, quirky but not a dealbreaker, but we found that merely bumping around the light will reset or even stay activated. If you are going to purchase this one, be aware of this issue. I may keep it for home and camp use, or I may return it on the chance this one is defective. I think they should probably use a simpler switch mechanism and make it a simple on/off.
I was going to order the Barska 1200 from the the barska website, but then decided to do a little shopping and found it on Over stock for much cheeper. I have to say this flashlight is the best light I have ever bought. I am a bounty hunter here in California and when you need night lit up, then this is the best for such an occasion. In the pitch dark alleyway, forest, home, warehouse, or desert you can be sure your way is going to be lit up. I recommend this for any law enforcement, or hunter. good luck and have fun with this big bright "clean" looking light.
