M57 Firing Device (aka "clacker") Styled Lighter Review

The M57 firing device (colloquially known as "clacker") is the firing devices used with the M18A1 Claymore, as well as many other military explosives.

A friend of mine, Freembear, came up with this wind-proof butane lighter, with very accurate external appearance of M57 firing device (3-D scanned from disassembled M57). The lighter is also sealed and splash resistant.


Old-school style package.


Yes, that is me below the "Special Thanks to" I helped Freembear to find a reputable lighter OEM.


Came with a comic book style manual. (Think about the M16 Comic Book Training Manual during Vietnam War.)

The M16 Comic Book Training Manual.





Two butane nozzles.




To fire, first push the safety up, then push it sideway (also stated in the manual). This is not only for appearance, but also functional. Compares to average lighters, the firing lever on M57 lighter is large enough to be used with gloves on or in darkness, but also large enough to be pushed accidentally in pocket without the safety. The safety is meant to prevent that on this lighter - as well as on real M57.



LIGHT'EM UP!

(No butane yet)


Let me check the manual...



FIRE!!!

The rubber cap is made of flame-resistant material, in case the user managed to point the flame to the rubber cap.

Some better pictures:

Good review, I already wanted to buy myself the same
I love the design of this lighter and the layout of the instructions.
You can always buy youtube subscribers to increase their amount.
