Does this flashlight have a momentary-contact light feature? That is, an operating mode where you can press a button to turn the lamp on, and have the lamp go off when you release the button?

I have the SRT3 Defender and it does have the feature you asked about. Everything including the ring still works perfectly after i think about two years use.

Excellent, Lefty, and thank you for this. For me this is the primary feature of any "tactical" flashlight. And a flashlight without this feature is not at all tactical.

I watched the first three minutes of [this review ](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYuU41PuPdA) and if it's really that hard to get momentary contact _*and*_ that easy to go past momentary-contact into "On" mode, I'm gonna pass on this one. Ideally for me, the on/off vs momentary-contact toggle would be in the ring, so there could be no chance of switching the light On when I'm trying to momentary-contact it.

You can half press the end cap and it will light and turn off when released. No special button for it but it does work. Unlike some though there is the slightest delay when turning on both momentary and clicking all the way on. Not a big deal but I noticed sending Morse code with it that way is next to impossible!

Thank you for that. If Morse code is impossible, then slashing is impossible.

I don’t know about that. Ive never had an issue accidentally clicking the light on when I meant for a momentary. The button takes a sufficient amount of force on both my SRT-3 and SRT-5 that I know I’m using momentary. To be clear I use momentary on this all the time and 99% of the time it’s just fine. I just wanted to point out the delay because it’s something I hadn’t seen in other lights. I imagine it has something to do with the circuitry involved in the ring but that’s just my guess
