    1st review

    This is the best light, small enough to fit anywhere, and bright! I used it all the time, untill somebody stole it from me, now im ordering another two! A christmas present to a friend! The battery lasted so long, i believe longer than it said it does! It has helped me out in some creepy places!!!

    I carry one on my duty belt and is an excellent back-up light. Good illumination from a very small flashlight.

    It's a great light! Bright and durable but.....I prefer the LED version for battery life. I own both and swap them out occasionally when I need to replace the batteries in one or the other.

    I use my scorpion more than my 4D streamlight. Alot easier to carry and more practical.

    Thre Scorpion is a good light but when the batteries go, they go. There is no warning, no dimming they just die. If you have one of these keep a couple of the CR123 with you.

    Ok, I'm a believer in SureFire lights, I received this Streamlight Scorpion as a gift from a fellow officer and couldn't be more pleased with it's reliability. It's a good light, compact and just easy to handle. I'm still a firm believer in SureFire, but I think I'll add this one as a favorite as well!

    Great light for your duty belt. It works great, but you have to check it along with the rest of your gear, (ie. taser) at the beginning of your shift, when the batteries go on this light, it is out, no warning. This should only be a back up light.

    Great flashlight! It's compact size makes it ideal for wear on a duty belt. It's super bright and the rubber armored sleeve allows for a solid grip. The only thing I don't like about it is that it uses up batteries like crazy!

    I like mine a lot. It's small and fits on my belt and is very bright. Only bad thing is it doesn't work so well to stick under your arm on a traffic stop. Works great for building searches. It's easier to handle.

    Great little flashlight. Extremely bright for such a small one. Had only one problem with the light. Its easily turned on & will burn the center of the cover lense. Needs to come with rechargable capablities.

    This is an awesome little light. If you're looking for something light weight for plain clothes assignment or tactical applications this is an excellent choice. The only disadvantage I can speak of is the battery life. It kicks out some stunning light, but the batteries are a little on the pricey side and don't last quite as long as the rechargable competition. I would still buy another one and am glad I have one.

    I have used this small flashlight as an off-duty light for just in case and it has been great! Plus it is really bright!

    Excellent Light, great battery life. L.E.D. bulb is better than the standard bulb they used to come with.

    Picked up these for the office and they work great. Small enough to fit in a suit pocket and bright enough to light up a nightclub's back room with.

    Absolutely the best flashlight for the cost !!! I used to be a 'Surefire Guy' until I was issued my first Scorpion. Now I own four of them (I keep them in my truck, at home, my off-duty gear and of course my issued one in my duty gear)! The LED version has a C4 led and is even brighter than this one.

    I have owned a Streamlight Scorpion flashlight for over 15 years. It has withstood years of use and abuse, on duty and off, in all types of enviroments. Other than replacing batteries, the only part that has needed replacement was the rubber sleeve. After finding a replacement, it continues to work flawlessly. Highly recommended!
