the model number of the correct bulb for this flashlight would be a PR12.

You need to get a 5 cell PR bulb, for example, one of the 5 cell PR bulbs that Maglite distributes.

I have acquired this model flashlight in very good condition. My only problem is that it keeps blowing out the standard flashlight bulbs that are used in the 2 and 3 cell units. Is there something malfunctioning in the switch, or do I just need to obtain a heavy duty bulb. The standard bulbs flash and burn out in a split second after clicking on the button switch.
