Get High Light Output at an Affordable Price with Brownells Versatile Flashlights


Brownells new Versatile lights provide self-defense and tactical shooters superb illumination for all firearm mounted and handheld applications.

The Versatile BVL160 and BVL280 lights have 1″ diameter, aircraft-grade aluminum bodies, making them compatible with most firearms light mounts. Mil-Spec anodizing provides durability and corrosion resistance for long service. “Our customers provided feedback about the operational features they require in a compact flashlight, and the new Brownells 160- and 280-lumen flashlights incorporate their design suggestions,” said Company CEO, Pete Brownell.

Other design features include:

  • Latest generation, high-intensity-LED XR-E Cree emitters combine high output and long run times
  • Tailcap switches allow for simple transitions from momentary to constant operation
  • Crenellated bezels protect the LEDs and allow the lights to serve as compliance devices if needed
  • Red, green and blue filters are included for preserving night-adapted vision, accommodating night-vision devices, or for locating organic fluids
  • Adjustable exterior O-rings to use as finger stops when employing “syringe grip” techniques
  • Three flats on the body provide a sure grip in Harries or FBI illuminating techniques
  • Spring-steel free spinning lanyard loops and lanyards aid retention and eliminate tangles when handling the lights off the gun

The waterproof Versatile lights ship with two CR-123A batteries and are ready to go out of the box. The new Brownells Versatile Light BVL160 #080-000-966, $59.99; and the Brownells Versatile Light BVL280 #080-000-967, $89.99, are available for pre-order at
