As of August 2017, Colonel Mustard is proud to announce the Canadian distribution of Acebeam flashlights.
The Acebeam L16 is a micro-USB rechargeable flashlight dedicated to law enforcement, search and rescue, military and similar applications. This amazingly bright tactical flashlight utilises a CREE XHP35 HI LED with a max output of 2000 lumens and a beam distance of 603 metres.
The L16 is a high-performance flashlight innovatively equipped with two independent light switches: a side switch provides access to five modes and a strobe while the tail switch allows one-touch access to turbo mode and tactical momentary illumination. The light is powered by an Acebeam IMR18650 rechargeable Li-Ion battery (included) but is also compatible with 2 x CR123A disposable batteries. The Li-Ion may be charged externally or rapid-charged inside the L16 by connecting the built-in micro-USB port to any USB power supply.
This flashlight continues to be very successful, particularly with police officers looking to supplement their issue flashlight - there really is nothing better for searching alleyways!
A selection of filters in red, green and orange plus a white diffuser (this screws into the bezel and effectively gives your L16 a wider beam) as well as a remote switch for weapons mounting - indispensable for tactical use - are available for this flashlight. All these items are shown below as well as a Hunting Kit which includes the red and green filters and the remote pressure switch.
Spare Acebeam 18650 batteries for this flashlight are also shown below (one included).

Here's what one of our customers said on CanadianGunNutz:
I must offer a hearty endorsement for this flashlight. I have a couple of the well-known Fenixs and the Acebeam is comparable; in style,weight and price.
Being in the country, we are often visited by marauding racoons. So... I propped up the Acebeam on an open window at night. A racoon's beady eyes were reflected. With my Ruger 10/22 I got a sight picture. One less coon.
Very pleased with the throw of the Acebeam.
Thanks Rule 303
