    Well, I don't know too much about the original history of the L6 Porcupine in general, but I had been curious about them for a while and wanted the chance to handle one in person. At the time (about three years ago) they seemed to be selling in the $700-800 range (USD).

    I got this one for $750. I bought it second hand (no box or paperwork) but in excellent condition from a non-CPF seller. I figured I could easily sell it on down the line and get my money back if I decided not to keep it. In the mean time, I was able to get a closer look, get some detailed photos, etc.

    But having no real practical use for it other than as a collector's item, and with it realistically being too pricey an item just for me to keep just to look at once in a while, I decided to sell it about six months later. I asked $1150 USD for it and it sold within 15 minutes on the CPF Marketplace. At the time I sold it, sellers were already asking around $1200 for them on eBay if I recall correctly (they were going up quickly in price/value), but I wanted a fellow CPF member to get it if possible so I offered it up on CPF. They've just kept creeping up in cost from that time. My original $750 made it a bargain three years ago.

I don't know the entire story, though. Perhaps someone else can help fill in the blanks, but I believe these were produced back in 2001 or 2002.
    That's right - I've always read the "50" as "SO"
    Late 2002 I believe.

    Yeah, the difference in the "5" and the "S" is barely visible without magnifying it, and even then the difference between the number and the letter is pretty difficult to see.

    CPF G2, factory finish or custom engraving?

    This is another question where someone else with more CPF history than I have probably knows more than I do, but here's what I think from what I've read.

    I read that the G2 50 CPF Specials were donated by PK to DavidW/CPF. PK = Paul Kim. Paul Kim = (I think) SureFire direct employee.

    So my guess is custom engraving at the factory. But I could be wrong in how I'm interpreting what I've read and whether the factory actually did the engraving.

    Thanks for that.
    There is one now on ebay I think it was $1600 or $1800 not sure but it has a very miss match HA.

    PK is SureFire's VP of Consumer Products. At the time of the CPF 5O Special G2 he was VP of Engineering or similar.

    The fifty G2's were given by PK to support CPF. I'm not sure if SureFire had the capability to do the screen printing (it's not etched) in house - or they sub-contracted it out. Either way CPF received them labelled up.

    Mismatched HA is not unusual on SureFire lights.

    That's awesome. I can imagine Surefire sending a bunch of these to the FDNY and NYPD :

    The bag is for SureFire firearms sound suppressors that made by EAGLE.
    So, the bag is not for the L6 porcupine, but that's really perfect fit for L6.

    Those 3-flats C2's & C3's are classic. Nice pics too.

    wow that suppressor pouch is awesome!!! I need one for my porky!!!

    I got the Fire 6PX too. I got lucky and got a low Serial number. I got this about 2 weeks ago. they seem to be on sale now for $80!!! That is how much I got mine for. Cheaper than Surefire MSRP and it is special edition. What's not to get? haha

    the case, tools,and parts are from the mu repair kit. this was a factory kit to maintain m95x and m96x series weapon lights. the case is wheeled and is made by toolbox inc. the box weighs in at 38 pounds empty, which is pretty stout due to the pull out steel handle.
