    Default Current collection, many I am very happy with...

    Since I created a thread for the ones I miss, I figured show the current collection. I am very please with many of these, although less expensive, awesome non the less.

    These have the KX4 heads, I just have them in each of my vehicles. I purposely bought yellow, so I wouldn't be tempted to take them out. I don't know about anyone else, but I have trouble keeping lights in my cars.

    I forget where I got them, I'll do a bit of research and see if I can help you locate one.

    The KX4-YL is still listed as in production on the SureFire website, so should at least be able to be ordered via their AD's .... Amazon also lists several in-stock (through Optics Planet).

    Hi Tim,

    Thats a great picture of your very nice (and well rounded) collection!

    I bought a G2/M60F for the wife's car.....somehow it keeps finding its way back to the display shelf!? I think the problem is it has such a nice beam I keep wanting to play with it.

    Thanks Chance...I know the feeling regarding wanting to have certain lights always at your disposal, that is the problem I have with most of mine. They sit on a display shelf above my desk, and I choose different ones to take with me when I go out back with the dogs at night. I just hate having them packed away anywhere, but the yellow G2L's work fine for that.

    There are 2 E1E BK's there...One has a Veleno 3 mode, and the one with the Z44 has an EDC+ X60L.

    Very nice F250XLT, especially love the yellow, won't be misplacing those. May I ask why the two TM11's? I can totally understand having multiples of EDC-size lights for backup (I do) or Ti collector lights. But for bigger, perhaps less frequently used wow lights?

    (And perhaps your answer might push me over the edge to go and buy the TM11 I have craved for so long )

    Edit: If it is just a symmetry thing that's fine, I understand

    Gotta have both the Cool & Neutral versions, and symmetry is definitely a big +

    Ah OK gotcha, I didn't realise there was a choice of emitters for it.

    I also like symmetry

    Yeah! What's-up with that? It should be front-and-center!

    I hate the "Flashlight Collection" section of this forum because it makes me so jealous because i only have like 2 lights and most people have like 30+ lights, and even some self queens that cost more than 3 of my collections.

    I have a soft spot for yellow G2s. I have an unopened G2L that I bought on sale, thinking to eventually gift it, but the fact that it has a yellow powder-coated aluminum bezel has caused me to hang onto it. I wish that Surefire had made some other hard-to-lose G2s, like bright turquoise, USN forum 'toxic green', or 'international hazard orange', or GITD, but it didn't fit into their D.O.D. marketing focus. I've never had the huevos to do a RIT-dye job on mine, since the close-up photos I've seen of that treatment never looked as good as a factory job. Someday I hope to get an HDS. Very nice collection...

    Chauncey,
    Perhaps I am mistaken, but it doesn't look as anodized to me, as it looks 'powder-coated'. It has a fairly matte surface. and the 'yellow' color doesn't quite match the color of the body/tailcap. In your photo, the bezel appears to match the body perfectly. My bezel doesn't; it looks less mustard, and more 'yellow/yellow-green/fluorescent FYL?'. It has a 'Caution: Hot Surface' message and logo. I know that the G2L models had aluminum bezels with a flat anti-roll faceting. Plastic removable bezel ring, Lexan lens. Has SF ever done yellow HA-II finishes? The packaging says 'G2' above 'LED'. Perhaps someone else could weigh in on this?
