Hopefully it’s just dirty and needs a good clean GLBM
I've been looking at these Streamlights for quite some time. They are often quite cheap on the surplus outlets. Been looking at new, but used was half-price, and I had an $5 voucher from eBay from an item showing up late due to a USPS slip-up; making it about $15. Only problem I've got is that the Sidewinder, being military issue, is not covered by the warranty. Had I known that, I likely would not have bought it. I guess if it doesn't work, I can always send it back. But, it's brighter, and much more compact than the old Fultons. Figure this will be a good one to clip to my belt so that I can use it hands-free. Not only that, it can pivot between straight and right angle; versus one or the other. Not to mention, it runs for 200 hours at 55 lumens. Not a bad battery life on 2AAs. I get that out of neither my LED Lenser PX6 or any Maglite I own. It has white, red, and blue LEDs in it. I know white is regular, red (night vision), and blue is supposedly IR; don't know exactly how that works. (Image removed from quote.)
Good luck GLBM. Hopefully dirt and not corrosion.
It’s always amazed me how little some sellers do to improve their listings. I think sometimes people sell for other people, so they’re not bothered to make any effort. Dunno.
