MF Tactical Victor R5 LED Tactical Flashlight - 1 Mode
We are pleased to offer the first model in our Victor Series tactical flashlights. You are looking at the MF Tactical Victor R5, which is the result of a lot of work on our end plus listening to the feedback, suggestions and comments of our devoted MF Tactical law enforcement users. Our LE users have told us that what they really need as a feature in a dedicated tactical flashlight is a "momentary-on function." Well, you have spoken, and we have listened: Now, when you lightly press the tail switch button on the MF Tactical Victor R5, you activate this impressive LED flashlight's bright white beam. Let go of the button, and it immediately turns off. For clearing a building or just briefly lighting up the suspect, the Victor R5's momentary-on function gives you the flexibility and control to expertly execute your training and tactics. Need the light to stay on, simply press the button until it clicks, and then it operates like a standard on/off switch. No fumbling for switches or dials, just click on/click off or press for momentary on - you are in complete control of your Victor R5.

The MF Tactical Victor R5, is both the spiritual successor and the improved version of our recently retired R5-350-5C, and (by popular demand) we have kept as part of the Victor Series' design the beautiful brushed aluminum crenulated Attack Bezel that has become a design hallmark of this highly functional and extremely tough tactical flashlight. Not only does this rich feature give the Victor Series its distinctive and high quality look and feel, but having a chunk of solid honed aluminum on the business end of your light also serves to give the user one serious last line of defense (which we hope you will never need to use). In addition to its use as a defensive tool, the Victor Series' potent attack bezel also protects the light from damage in the event of a drop and also provides a glass breaker in the event of an emergency. Following through with the quality brightwork design element of the bezel, you will find a polished aluminum pocket clip that will help insure that you and your Victor R5 will never part prematurely. All in all, what you see on this page is a well engineered and beautiful tool that you will never want to be without as your everyday carry tactical light.
The Victor R5 uses the powerful, efficient and economical Cree XP-G R5 emitter. The Cree R5 has hit the sweet spot of LED emitters, permitting us to build a light around it that has excellent run time, efficient power draw and a price point that allows us to offer the Victor Series at a price well below similar but less capable models offered by our bigger competitors. With a max output rating of 350 lumens and a price tag under $50.00, the Victor R5 may just be the most cost effective and highest quality tactical flashlight available to members of law enforcement. With simplicity in mind, the Victor Series was designed as a single mode light that operates exclusively in high mode, either locked on or through use of the momentary on feature. This eliminates any confusion or inadvertant mode changing when operating under stress or on the move. For users looking for an advanced, high quality, multi-mode R5 light, the Victor R5's big cousin, the MF Tactical PRO Tango R5, offers all of the features of the Victor Series plus more in a three mode Cree R5 powered tactical flashlight.
THIS IS AN INCREDIBLY BRIGHT FLASHLIGHT IN A LIGHT/COMPACT SUB-6" BODY. We have researched, tested and compared hundreds of LED flashlights over the years, so we know what you need to buy if you want the brightest, highest quality, highest power efficiency and most useful flashlight in the smallest package at the lowest cost. Compared to the now ancient looking MagLite LED that took 3 D-cell batteries, this compact flashlight made of anodized aircraft aluminum puts out many times MORE light as the brightest MagLite that weighs a ton.
The Victor R5 was built to run on a single high voltage 18650 rechargeable protected li-ion battery (Do NOT use CR-123A's or any unprotected batteries). While the price shown for the flashlight is without batteries, just check the box marked "Select Battery/Charger Package" when you put this light in your shopping cart, and you can choose from a variety of packages made up of one or two of our top quality rechargeable li-ion batteries and your choice of charger type, all offered with a package deal and with no additional shipping. We also stock a variety of accessories, such as mounting hardware, remote pressure switches and holsters.
There are a lot of inferior flashlights being sold on the internet and being shipped on slow boats from Hong Kong or other distant provinces of Mainland China. Many use similar metal bodies to make them look on the outside like their higher quality competitors. Many of these unfortunately become expensive paper weights after a few months. MF Tactical, on the other hand, makes state of the art, top quality products with the best possible materials and electronics, and we ship quickly from New Jersey (no Tony Soprano jokes please!) by USPS 1st Class or Priority Mail. That way, you will have your light in a few days instead of the 3-4 weeks that it takes to come from the Far Eastern sellers. Also, since MF Tactical is run by an openly neurotic flashlight freak who runs the shop with a whip, orders are usually packed the same day and shipped out the following morning. Our mission here is to sort through all of the competing technologies and materials to figure out what works best and what is just junk. ONLY then, after we have worked out what constitutes the best features and materials for a particular type of light, does that light get designed, tested and then introduced as a MF Tactical flashlight. As our growing list of customers already know, MF Tactical combines the best of the best products and features at the best possible prices with excellent and caring customer service. Our newer customers always ask us: "Why are your prices so low?" And, what's our response?: We tell our customers to ask the competitors why are they charging so much!!
Victor R5 shown with optional SMO Upgrade
SMO Reflector Option:
If you would like to upgrade your Victor R5 to maximize the throw distance of this magnificent emitter, we offer the option to upgrade your reflector to a highly polished SMO smooth reflector. The standard OP or "orange peel" reflector has a textured surface that acts to evenly disburse the light over a wider field, which makes the light have a bias towards flood or spill. As some users prefer their light to have a bias towards throw, which concentrates more of the beam towards the center, sending more of the light farther down field, we offer the option of upgrading your light's reflector to an SMO reflector. Think of the difference as the choice of loading your home's light fixture with a spot light bulb vs. a flood light bulb. If you would want to maximize your light's throw potential through the use of an SMO reflector, just check that option box when ordering to upgrade your standard OP reflector to the SMO reflector.
If you prefer to have both reflectors, just order the light with the standard OP reflector, and then add the SMO reflector as an accessory from the "Mounts, Remote Pressure Switches & Smooth Reflectors" page.
