Natchez Shooter Supplies has what appears to be the correct bulb, but shipping is high.

I just dug mine out of a box that I had in storage. luckily the bulb still works and the spare is still in the tail of the light. I also called Bestex, but the guy on the other end with a thick asian accent could only tell me that shipping on 10 bulbs cost too much, he also stated that they don't sell retail. I then asked for a part number and all he could get out was that it was a Krypton Bulb. I asked for a model number on the bulb but he just repeated Krypton Bulb, I stated I understood, what Krypton was and that Mag-Lite uses them, but they come in different shapes, sizes, cell ratings and output ratings. I was then told that they don't have information on the light. I hope that this information is usefull. just a note, if you can give a price on a bulb, shouldn't you have a part or model number?

I love this flashlight & inherited mine from one of my sons when he got frustrated & could not find a replacement bulb for it. Did you ever find where you could obtain correct replacement bulbs for these? If so please let me know. respectfully yours,

I found another bulb, type 268. That wasn't it either.
Still looking.

No, it doesn't use a standard bulb. I searched and found a type 338 that was the right voltage and size, but it doesn't put out near the brightness as the original bulb. I'm still looking. ANY HELP???

I goofed. It is not what I said it was. I didn't see that it used aa batteries. My guess is that it uses a tl pen light bulb.

This is a Taiwan ripoff of the US govenment mIitary MX-991/U flashlight. It uses a standard PR-6 (30 Hour bulb life) or a PR2 (15 Hour bulb life).
