    Its a discontinued model called the "Hurricane Case/ Battery Holder.

    There is a bulb that comes with it that provides long runtime for emergancy situations. Long runtime from an incandecent. I want to make an LED module that is either dimable or have different brightness levels for it. There are metal contacts inside the case.

    Somewhat hard piece to find.

    You've got to be kidding me. I just threw one away last week when cleaning out the box of random flashlight stuff.

    I still use the plastic box to hold batteries, but I yanked out the metal contacts long ago.

    I just got my first Surefire today, a standard 6P. I can now see why people like Surefires so much! It's a great light - the light output seems to be pretty good, and the build quality is amazing. It might take a while to get used to the tail cap, but I might also get a clicky tail cap as well. I already have some extras on the way for it, a Surefire P60L and a Malkoff M60 .

    Eric242...That yellow case with the Surefire stickers on it looks awesome! I have a black Pelican 1400 case, too. But yours looks like it was made by Surefre!

    Edit: oops, I have a Pelican 1200 case.

    SureFire cases (for Beasts and HellFighters etc) are Hardigg Storm Cases rather than Pelican.

    Richard (RPM) made a few of these. They were available in black and natural, both with or without tritium slots (3x). The tailcap is a single mode with a McClicky switch installed, works very well.

    Thanks Tung, the yellow pelican cases seem to be the best match for the red surefire stickers I guess.

    Thanks Teh, the teeth look awesome on the G2Z.

    Eric 242, where did you get that TAD sticker? Did it come with the case?

    Pinarello, every time you post those C2 pictures you make me want to get one.

    Sorry for crummy quality, but here's my SF collection.


    Collection including lights and accessories, minus spare lamps, lanyards, etc.


    Lights only (left to right)...Front row: E1/E1e with KL1 heads (3 ea.); Middle row: L2, 6PSN, 6P, E2/E2e in black (2 ea.), in HA (3 ea.), & in satin gray (2 ea.); Back row: M4, M6 (2 ea), M3, C3, Z3, D3, 9P blk, 9P "clear," and G3.


    3-cell lights (niche where I think SF really shines): M3 (+ turbo head for M3T), C3, Z3, D3, 9P blk, 9P "clear," and G3. Beam shapers/diffusers at bottom front.
    Having a right and doing what's right is not always the same.
