A very rugged flashlight, but even with fresh batteries, not so bright. Might put a krypton lamp in it.

I have this identical flashlight and it is FOR SALE! It is in Premium, TOP condition, as I have never used it for any camping or hiking outings. It looks identical to the MX99NU shown in this photo. All colored lenses intact and in brand new condition. Battery compartment clean as a whistle!

Hello.....I just purchased a Fulton MX99NU at a local antique store to be a white elephant Xmas gift. I have worked on it but can't get it to light up. Finding this site has helped to ID possible year, or maybe not? Would like some info that may help me w/ year and restore it to working shape. I am in Northern CA. Thank you, Chuck

HELP! I found a MX-993/U Model, any idea's on vintage? It has a Gray body w/ military green lens housing (red colored lens).It has the spare bulb in the base part.
It's marked FULTON MADE IN U.S.A. MX-993/U. Is the green & gray normal or a marrage of two pcs? Any help would be great.

The TL-122 series was the first issue,The MX-99/U was the second issue/Vietnam era. The MX-991/U Is the current issue to date.

i have one just like that 1 but its is camo and i do night paintball and it just isnt brick enough and i was thinking about converting it to a led with one i have any tips???
Mar 10, 2010 - 8:43 PM
scogee - re your offer to sell. Is it still available? Pls drop me a line. Thanks.
Dec 27, 2009 - 8:41 AM
Didn't mean to start a firestorm! I made a typo... I meant to say "MX-991/U". My point is that it's NOT ca.1955 or, 1940, but later. The flashlight in the picture IS current issue and the MX-991/U IS VN era.
Dec 13, 2009 - 8:35 AM
A decent light, mine was Nam issue, no 'ears' I put a Krypton bulb in it and turned it into a star performer. Later converted it to LEDs.

I have a flashlight that has no switch protecter next to the switch.The current issue make is MX-991\U. perfect condition without all the color lenses in the bottom. A little bit of corrosion on the inside but not really noticeable. Willing to sell.
Apr 12, 2009 - 7:05 PM
Yah, I agree with Juhapekka. My flashlight has no side bars but still says MX-991/U.

I have a flashlight like that, but in black. BTW are you sure about its model numerb? In my flashlight it says: MX-99I\U
Nov 22, 2008 - 4:41 PM
The flashlight on the picture is the current issue MX-991/U. It has been the standard US army flashlight for several decades. It is an upgraded version of the MX-99/U which was instroduced during Vietnam War - the only difference is the addition of the switch protection side bars. The MX-99/U is a direct descendant of the TL-122D introduced in late 1944 (World War II).

This flashlight is circa 1995 NOT 1940. The MX 99/U is current issue. It is, jowever, a direct descendant of the TL-122 series from WW2.

I like the early version of your flashlight that had no switch protecter next to the swicth it was the veitnam version. It is so hard to find. Does your company still make them I do the Vietnam reenactments, but we need every thing to look like it was back in the 1960s. Please comment back my E-mail is peteabate@msn.com
