    You mean the 2nd version of the 2nd generation KL3 right?

    Re: L2 - the original L2 had a shorter bezel, and flat body panels, and a TailCap with the channels on each side of the knurling (which had to be replaced with the one shown because it wasn't functioning reliably on production bodies)

    All the different versions make things extremely complex.
    It would be helpful to have a "SureFire Product Generations/Evolution" thread, with photographs to help line up all these ducks into neat rows.

    Got ahold (temporarily) of what appears to be a 6Z variant:

    Yes - that's the version I was trying to describe above. When I bought mine (which is the one pictured at the top of the thread) at the S&W Academy in '99 or '98 they had both for sale. I liked the way the one with the longer thin section handled better. I *think* that the one you've got pictured there was the original version.

    Just wanted to send in the best pics I could take of my just-arrived late-model D3 for the OP.





    Let's get some more good SF pics, it would be cool to fill out the 'discontinued' list in post #1.

    I didn't see a picture of this one, so I thought I'd make some.
    I think it's a 9ZT, but I'm not too sure on the name. Have on with a regular body (9p) as well, that one's called 9PT.




    Those 3" turboheads are really cool IMO, make for a nice looking light.

    Yep, when a T-Series TurboHead kit replaces the standard bezel the model gains the "T".

    After reviewing this thread yesterday I stopped by Basspro at lunch to grab a couple of things. I decided to pick up a couple of new mn03's for my E2O and E2E. I noticed that on the shelf they still had three MNO2 25lumen bulbs. They did have a lot of dust on them but was surprised knowing they were discontinued. Are these usually hard to find?

    They were, until SF added them back to there website. I think they double thoguht that one, and have since decided to kepp them. Great bulb...most useful 25 lumen incan lamp there is (stock anyways). 2.5 hours solid runtime in a tank!

    I still have the original mn02 that came in my E2o. I keep it in my spares carrier. I figure it would be very useful when I need longer run time. So if the MN02 is no longer discontinued should that be reflected in the first post?

    For "historical" purposes, probably.

    Just imported my 'new' Laser Products / SureFire 9Z into CPF, so I thought I'd put up a pic to help fill out the OP's thread.

    Interesting pic - are those Duracells the ones that came with the light? What is the date on them? Maybe they pre-date SF batteries. Maybe Al will be along soon to give us more info...

    SureFire used to ship their lights with DL123A (Duracell) batteries before introducing their own brand

    Before SureFire's own brand was introduced, the cheapest way DL123A could be sold/bought was inside a 12B Hurricane model.

    My contribution.....

    This is an unusual one. It is a true E1e Executive body, with pocket clip and a style that exactly matches my E1e in HA, but it has the teardrop bezel and is lasered E1.


    A real Laser Products P91. Full text of the label says "9 VOLT . LASER PRODUCTS . P91". The cells are obviously not discontinued


    The M3 is still current, but the bezel is no longer available for purchase in this style. They have switched to a smooth style.


    Front view next to a LF P7 on the left. No crenelations or scallops on this bezel.


    Long discontinued, a 3rd gen KL1 and a 2nd-gen KL1. The slightly scalloped bezel distinguishes them. Shown here wearing their NX05 optics for the last time (before I change them to reflectors to match their new Cree XR-E's.)


    Side view on their power packs.


    Z52 clicky - seems like only yesterday these were standard issue but they tell me they are no longer provided now. Technically this is supposed to be a Z53 because of its color.


    The C-series cousin of the Millenium bezel I posted above. This is the M2 version, also no longer available with fins. Someone in Europe is enjoying this now.. I sold it.. oh well, can't keep everything though I want to!

    Yes, those DL123s come originally w/ the light. It has only code on it, no expired date.

    Sure, I will post more pictures about the tail switch. Basically, it had a remote tape switch w/ 25" long cable, and a twist switch on the tailcap.
    The following are the pictures of manual that I took before

    Here is a picture of my SureFire G2-HD (Realtree camo edition) before selling it a while back.



    The photo is hosted on my Flickr account. Please feel free to use it in the original post.
    Please retain the image link to the Flickr page though.

    25'? I assume you mean 25" right? My 9SL is the same revision as yours according to my manual but the box states that it has a 40" cable, so apparently there were at least two versions. Perhaps the 6SL had two versions as well. I would measure the cable, but I don't want to take it out of the plastic it is a shelf queen.

    I thought I was the only one that had one of those.. I don't feel special anymore.. I've only come across the one that I remember.

    I've only tested mine once on three half dead batteries. It seemed brighter than some of my later production P91's.

    It's also unfrosted. I think I have at least one Laser Products P61 somewhere as well. Maybe more..

    Mine's actually my 'working' P91 that gets used for all kinds of things as a production light. It's been driven nearly its whole operating life on 17500s and still works fine. I've lost count of the power-on hours plus how many discharges I've put the 17500's thru, but it's quite a lot seeing how I really liked the 200 OTF lumen beam for at least 5 years before LEDs caught up. And before I sold my clone 2x18650 pack, the bulb sat on top of that setup.

    Which is why I can't quite understand how vehemently some people scold others not to run a P91 in this setup. The lamp doesn't seem to have suffered in terms of life, either.

    Maybe the Laser Products P91's had the 91 secret herbs and spices and later ones don't.

    Unfrosted bulb, just for trivia's sake.

    Laser Products R30. I'm guessing there aren't many of these floating around.
