    MS series look nice and comfortable to use. All the heads & tailcaps are interchangeable in mechanical design.

Was hoping for a forward clicky, or piston switch combinded w/a I.V. control ring.
    However redundant two similar variable ramping controls might be, I think it's safe to assume they will both control the same circuit, so it's not like it'll draw any extra current, at least not more than a few extra microamps, similar to standby currents. I'd quite like a light like this, although I'm not aware of any very succesful piston drive lights. Didn't pretty much anyone who manufactured these at one point abandon the system in favor of either a ring or fixed modes?
    Both the single AA and the CR123 look way too huge for their class though...

    They are interesting lights.

    You can see my review here.

    They are interesting, but they keep the same body for every type of battery, as a result we get a 1xAA light almost as big as a 18650 light (24mm diameter). More and more brands do that now, I guess to reduce the cost, but I don't like that.

    I actually do like this in a long term view. While I know that Surefire can support its products (not the mention the 3rd party parts) for quite a while, who knows if a certain typ of light will still be available (and its spare parts) in a few years. So if I have, say, 2x Jetbeam BC10s and one Jetbeam BC20, I have a good chance to keep one light going if the switch fails since I can swap the parts.

    Cheers

    Too bad it has no momentary and decent low. Seems like attaching a lanyard isn't as easy as it should be with these lights.

    I dont know about the other lights, but the MSA10 (1xAA) specs are not right. On the website it says 160 lumens on nimh, and not compatible with li-ion.
