Walther Pro PL70 Torch

Walther Pro PL70 Torch

Tactical torches are everywhere these days, but it’s always nice to see a new range come onto the market. The Walther Company are best known for their firearms and airguns but they have recently introduced a host of useful accessories. One such item is the compact Pro PL70 torch. The unit uses a single high-performance LED housed within a high grade aluminium reflector and an anti-reflective, black anodised, knurled alloy body; it takes two CR123 Lithium three-volt batteries (that are included) and are slid into the removable inner housing but in case these are unavailable, the spare battery box can be used instead that takes three AAA batteries. This is really handy, as, even though CR123s are readily available in larger shops, AAAs are pretty much available anywhere. Batteries are changed by un-screwing the tail cap, which also doubles as the ON/OFF switch. The PL70 comes in a robust carry pouch and there’s a compartment on the side to take the spare battery housing, so you’ve always got it with you- just make sure you actually fit some batteries in it! The torch also takes a single 1850 battery, so it’s a very versatile product.

To alter the power, the tail cap switch is pressed for ‘high’, ‘medium’ and ‘low’ (100%, 40% and 10%) and if you keep it pressed, the ‘strobe’ function kicks in – not that the majority of users need such a function but handy for police and security users. I like the way that strobe is only activated when you actually need it, as some torches have it as a permanent function, which can be quite annoying! It’s not just the brightness that can be adjusted however, as the beam can be altered from flood to spot (and anywhere in between) by twisting the LED housing and sliding it to the required position. Once set, a quick twist of the head locks the beam as you require.

The PL70 is 5½-inches (143 mm) long and weighs 6¼-ounces (142-grams) so you hardly know you’ve got it with you on your belt until you actually need it. All Walther torches are ‘ANSI’ (American National Standards Institute) tested for brightness and run time; with two CR123 batteries fitted for instance, 935-Lumens are available for 1-hour 20-minutes and the beam is 215-metres.

An impressive tactical torch with a host of useful features, the Walther Pro PL70 tactical torch is priced at around £69.00 and available from Armex at www.armex-airgun.co.uk.
