    I do believe there is one very lucky member on here with a M2D proto type.
    The M2D never made it to production only a few proto types was made. They did this a lot. They would put new models in the catalog but than change their minds.

    It's a two step output xenon. The tailcap is not a clicky soft press low hard press high.

    The good old days Silgt. I purchased this days after the sale thread started if I remember correctly. Can you imagine this light sticking around for that long these days
    I think you scored a Monster Head DEF light in that sale am I right ? While I got you Silgt how about posting some pics of your cool collection I know you have many sweet Surefire lights.

    is this a recent thing or did you see the M2D a long time ago? I can't imagine any would be kept out in display haha

    Thanks mate I have been very lucky to have had the chance to purchase these rare lights. I look at me being just the current caretaker of these lights. They have had many looking after them in the past and I am sure there will be many more people doing it in the future.

    Here is some more info

    Wow, a rare and interesting SureFire, indeed! Wish I had the resources to acquire special pieces of SF's history like this M2D. Thanks to Blackbird13 for asking, and thanks for sharing, Rat. Question(s): any pictures of the front of the light? What kind of xenon bulb: a P61, or something special?

    I'd like to take a shot at addressing this statement, if I may: I think they did do their research - they saw that the LEDs were coming, which may be the reason why out of all that R&D they must've poured into regulating incandescents, only the incan-LED hybrid A2 made it to production.

    you know I never thought about that and I'm betting you're right

    I guess I need to be a little more clear with my statements . I was more or less speaking of the body style of the newer lights . Y'all know what I'm talking about, that's why a light with box from ten years ago with 110 lumens sells for what a newer sf with 800 lumen . I think they had more character to them is all

    It's the head of the "photon king 1" with Paul Kim's initials on the side.

    From memory it's an M6, with a massive head (like a 4"-5"ish reflector) with a 5w Luxeon in it

    I think an SF "light with box from ten years ago with 110 lumens sells for what a newer sf with 800 lumen" sells for is mainly because of the collectible value and scarceness of the ten year old light, not because we feel that one looks better than the other. I know it may be sacrilegious for some, but I actually like the looks of some of the newer models. That said, I agree with you - I think the older lights had more character to them. But perhaps with age comes character! Who is to say that the unpopular and discontinued S2 Stratum model won't be selling for more than the price of a 5000 lumen SF light in 10 years?
