Quality manufactured using the same methods and materials as The Folmer Graflex Corp in the 1920s - 1940s, this flashgun features the details and functionality of its vintage counterpart.  Being fully licensed, trademarked and stamped GRAFLEX® insures the quality, fit and finish fully matches the antique originals.

Complete your project, whether it be the base of your movie prop replica, an illuminated saber or as a working flashgun for your Graflex camera.  Accepts original vintage Graflex parts and modern blade holders and accessories made for a vintage.

On the bottom of the battery tube, this version is stamped MADE BY THE FOLMER GRAFLEX CORP and does not feature the patent number.  We refer to this as the 'Folmer No Patent' version.

Hollow version includes the vintage part version of the 2pc Brass Contact Set and a 4pc Brass Pin Set.

Each GRAFLEX is manufactured in small batches to help maintain and control quality.  Batches are typically processed in one or two month increments with limited inventory.  Note that the product arrives unassembled unless requested otherwise.  Due to this product being hand inspected, please allow up to 15 business days to package your order and ship.

Elite is a hand selected pick worthy of a status of shelf queen.  Please allow an extra five to eight business days for sorting, inspection and packaging for Elites.

Imperfection is Built into the Design
Vintage Graflex flashes vary greatly in their dimensions from part to part, and our replica will vary slightly from part to part.  The Graflex Shop is committed to building our replica within reasonable tolerances of an original, if not better.

Roger Christian Approved

When the Academy Award winning set decorator of Star Wars (1977) first saw our Graflex flashgun, he initially thought it was one manufactured back before the 1950s. He was astonished by the detail and the quality of what he was holding.

The GRAFLEX® is featured in Christian's Galaxy Built On Hope (2022). You can find more information here.
