my father gave me his GT Price(MX-991/U) Field flashlight which he used in vietnam. it has all the colored lenses. if i was to sell it, what would it be worth? and my grandfather had stainless steel silverware that saids 'US' on the handle. how much is any of this worth?

The Fulton light was inferior to the GT Price light. Nobody in my unit wanted a Fulton version. They would return to the supply depot and demand a Price light. I once called GT Price and George Price himself spoke with me. He was very kind and sent me a box of sample Price lights which I shared with my fellow Marines.

I recently bought a G.T. Price MX-991/U on EBAY ( early one with no switch guard ). I got it dirt cheap as it was described as faulty and not working , so I figured that I may be able to get it going. When it arrived , it was indeed not switching on , but after a little spray on the switch with WD-40 and sliding it back and forth many , many times , hey presto ! I reckon the contacts were a little corroded and the constant rubbing eventually wore off the corrosion to make a contact.
Definitely worth a try.

Does anyone one have some insight as to why the MX-991/U made by GT Price works fantastic, as the light beam works like a far distance spotlight...but the exact same MX-991/U made by Fulton does not?

The Fulton just works like any other hum-drum flashlight with only close-up light illumination with just a wide blurry circle of light.

Is there another current manufacturer of this model MX-99/U flashlight that anyone knows about who manufactures it exactly like GT Price Products did with the far distance spotlight beam effect?

Contacts in the end-cap are for testing continuity or for providing test voltage to a piece of phone equipment. GT Price wasn't the only company making lights like this. For example, Eveready, among others, made a series of industrial lights that had jacks for leads to permit the flashlight to be used as a temporary power source. Usually, though, you see this feature in a Bright Star or Fulton / GT Price / etc. military-style light that was manufactured for Bell System use.

i recently acquired a g.t. price bell systems flash light its teal blue with white end caps but this one had 2 holes in the battery cap with a pin in the center is this for some old telephone application or is it a feature to use rechargeable batteries i have looked on the net and have found none with the holes in the end cap formerly being in the military i have used this style flashlight for years and have never seen any with the contacts in the end cap im just curious what they are for ??????????????????????

I have a MX-991/U With switch guard. Still works pretty good (lights up on-demand and stays lit when tilted, upsidedown, ect). Bulb is still bright, temporary signal button works, switch is solid. I was given this a VERY long time ago (i believe it was my first flashlight). Need a new red lens tho, the one i had is MIA.

I have a MX-991/U right angle flashlight. It does not work and I believe it is due to the turn-on switch. Does anyone know where a new switch could be purchased or what other possible reasons for the flashlight not working? Thank you.

I have repared a light just like this it is a mx-212a/u you can grind the rivet heads off of the switch and remove the switch and repair or clean it and cement it back on with contact cement and will work ok.

I have my father's flashlight that is similar to this but not the right angle one, it's just a straight one, with different colors of lens caps. I have replaced the batteries and the bulb and it does not work, I guess that pretty much means the switch is the only thing that can be left that's not working...who can tell me how I can get this flashlight fixed, it has great sentimental value to me but I know it's not necessarily not worth all that much in the open market. Thank you.

U.S. Army Angle Head Flashlight MX-99/U MX-991/U

In the Vietnam era an improved plastic flashlight was introduced, the MX-99/U later upgraded to the MX-991/U. These flashlights were similar to the TL-122D (1940-1945), waterproof design with spare lenses and bulb in an extended base. Most of these are marked with either G.T. Price or Fulton as the manufacturer.
The MX-991/U continued in use with the nomenclature "FLASHLIGHT: electric, hand, 2-cell, w/lamp and lens filter, w/o batteries, type I class A (21108) MX991-U" with NSN 6230-00-264-8261. Sometimes it is just called "Flashlight, plastic" or "Flashlight, anglehead". At some point a switch guard was added to the design.

Lens filters are available in blue, green, amber, red, blackout and diffusion to adapt to different conditions. The screw-on base, below the battery compartment spring, holds a spare bulb and below that spare lenses, in two sections that join together with screw threads. The flashlight is 8 inches long by 3 inches across the angle head. The tube diameter is 1 3/4 inches. The light is powered by two "D" cell batteries.
