MAGLITE Stands the
Test of Time
Brian Evans from the NRA Store puts the spotlight on Maglite for Membership Monday ...
We’ve all seen the classic MAGLITE® D-Cell flashlights in
action. For decades they’ve been spotted everywhere from police cruisers to the
family garage - famous for their brightness and use as a self-defense weapon in
a pinch (trust me, you do not want to feel the wrath of one of these bad boys).
But do you know the roots from which this iconic American company was started?
Prior to the
introduction of the first MAGLITE® flashlight in 1979, flashlights were
generally regarded as unreliable items that were typically thrown away after a
short time due to inferior quality. All that changed when MAGLITE® president
Anthony Maglica revolutionized the portable lighting industry.

warranty. A champion of free enterprise and U.S.-based manufacturing, Maglica created
a symbol of classic American design.
Since then, MAGLITE®
has continued to be a trailblazer in the ever-evolving world of illumination –
and NRAstore has
certainly taken notice. One way of doing so is taking traditional favorites and
infusing new technology to make them 21st century relevant. One must
change with the times, right? By adding LED light engines to staples such as
the MAGLITE® PRO and Solitaire®, you’re now able to get the same classic design, with more power,
efficiency and overall better performance.
tactical market has been a priority for MAGLITE® as well. State-of-the-art
lighting systems such as the MAG-TAC and XL200 display the type of American ingenuity they’re famous for – and the
type of lights NRAstore likes to offer. Features such as motion-sensing power
adjustment, NiteLite™ Mode, “Quick-Click Mode” and crowned bezels for self-defense
have cemented MAGLITE’s status of one of the best innovators in the industry.
As a favorite of
the NRAstore staff, we’re
proud to offer an expansive line of MAGLITE® products to our members. Click here for a full listing of these ground-breaking American lights.
