    Can anyone answer my two questions:

    1. How many lumens does the M60N output?

    2. Can a Malkoff M30 or M31 be used in old school Z32 bezels?

    Thanks

    Any chance of a neutral XM-L Mag 3-6D drop-in?

    I have two old mags (one 3D, one 6D) and I'd like to give them new life.

    Gene says no more custom orders right now.
    He just has too much on his plate.

    But ummm, might want to keep an eye out for new goodies!
    There's a sale on you know

    Taking a further plunge here...just bought one of the XM-L Hound Dogs - the sale price was irresistable - and an M61LLL. My Gene-pool is now M60, M60F, M60LF, M61, M61LLL, a Hound Dog XM-L, a Wildcat, and a 2C Mag drop-in. Great stuff, great folks.

    I have a M60N and your looking around 235 lumens give or take.

    I hope Gene will make XM-L dropins for Maglites. A similar tint like M91W would be awesome!
    Wanted: Surefire G2 in tan. Tip me!

    What is the highest output/throw Malkoff has available for a 6p/c2 body?

    I think it's the Wildcat for max output, Hound Dog XML for throw. Both will run off a 6P sized body...

    If he meant 6P sized (an MD2) then yeah, but of he meant an actual 6P or C2 then it'd be an M91. It'll do about 500 lumens initially, settling to about 450 after warm up. It'll run fine if your using two rcr123's although the runtime is only about 30mins (if I remember right you can get about 45 mins if the light is bored & you use 18350's).

    Just got my MD10 in the mail yesterday. Packaging was way overdone and the invoice even had a nice hand written note from Cathy thanking me for my purchase.

    The MD10 is amazing -- exactly what I wanted for my weaponlight. It has a nice tight hot spot that throws very well and the color of the light is similar to my E2DL, a nice white (I'm terrible with estimating color temp so my apologies).

    Gene, thanks for making this. I didn't want to have to buy an entire replacement head to convert to LED and this is perfect. I can still swap back to incan if I ever desired to do so, but I don't see that happening after seeing how great this little drop in performs.

    Got an MD60 in the mail yesterday. I put it in my M4. I also have an FM24 beam diffuser on it. Now it got both throw and glow. With an SW02 it just feels like a flashlight in hand.

    I put my MD10 in a M3 head and mated it to a M6 tube. A "sea cucumber" Malkoff style. This is in my truck emergancy kit.

    I know these modules will most likely never fail me but it gives me peace of mind knowing that I can replace the emitter in a pinch.

    Will a M61 fit into a Surefire E2E?

    it will, but you'll need a VME (E Series) head.

    Finally added a couple of Mag drop-ins to my Malkoff stable,should have done it a long time ago!.Nice upgrade to the Mag and you retain the user servicabilty of the original Mag design.I couldn't resist getting a couple more M61NLLs as well Mated with an MD2/3 or SF the M60/M61 are the best thing going in flashlights right now IMHO.

    Here is a beamshot of my M31N in a Surefire E1B body with a VME head. All I can say is pocket rocket.

    Friends, the Hound Dog XM-L arrived today and is unbelievable. There are a few left - at the current price it's a steal - strongly urge you to clean Gene out on these!

    Good idea on the headlamp. I have a M61NLLL that I'm debating on posting a beamshot of.

    The XM-L HoundDogs are now 39% off! I thought I had a steal last week with 36%, but this is even better.

    I would definately make sure the drop-in is making contact with the light body.Aluminum foil should work, that is what I used with a Solarforce body, but you may want to get something better in the long run.I have never noticed any of my Malkoff drop-ins being loose in SF lights.

    maybe the new 9Ps have a wider body since mine has the new logo but when i tighten down the bezel the m61 doesn't move.

    Few drop in makes are actually snug against the walls of any model body. It's a lot of work to cut/coat metal that closely. What your describing sounds normal for a 9P + Malkoff.
