Best in this particular size class
on May 28, 2012
I picked up one of these because the price was right. Found it used in a pawnshop. The light isn't much bigger than one of the Surefire Executive series of flashlights. There is an integral mount on the tube to allow the unit to be mounted to a railed foreend or other railed surface. Simple thumbscrew for on/off removal. Although this product comes with a tape switch as an option, I use the push-button tailcap. Mounting the light on the left side of the forend puts it where my thumb will naturally be. Quality of light is goood....soild, white, beam with decent range. Most important to me, the small size of the light means less weight to carry, less mass moving my point of aim around, and low profile enough to not have to worry too much about snagging it on corners and the like. In a pinch, you can unbolt it from the rail and use it like a regular hand-heald Surefire flashlight. Construction is top-notch with all parts being coated with a dark finish and likely to take far more abuse than I could ever walk away from. Uses standard CR123 batts, so you're not locked into an oddball battery that you can't find in every resupply point. Light might have some negative features, but if it does I haven't noticed them. Be nice if the included a snap-open red filter lens cap. If I can find used ones of these at better prices, I'd snap 'em up without a second thought....good kit. Taking off one star because, really, these shouldn't cost this much.
