Thread: Incan lamp options for for Surefire M4

    Default Incan lamp options for for Surefire M4

    Recently, I came about a Surefire M4 with a non-working lamp. Being a longtime member of CPF, I figured it'd be trivial to find a replacement, however, it does not seem to be the case. Most importantly, I would like to keep the light "as-is", meaning no compatible heads or reflectors, nor any addition or subtraction of parts. The only incan option that would allow me 4xCR123 is Lumens Factory HO-M4A, and a less desired option is Tad Customs (less desired since none of his offerings work on 4xCR123).

    Apart from these, is there any other option? Thanks in advance.

    2x16650 cells with Tads 7225 are the best option ever. The best beam i ever saw and darn bright. Not to mention huge capacity over 123...

    2x16650 or 2x17670 would let you run several stock SF lamps. MN15, MN16, MN20, and a couple LumensFactory options- HO-M3T and EO-M3T

    There are a few options from Lumens Factory, HO-M3T and EO-M3T run very well off of 2 x 17500 Li-ion cells.
    LED's impress but Incans satisfy

    Phone Surefire, they probably have some in stock, even if not on their website. I recently got some E1e bulbs from them.

    I have 2 Surefire N62 500 lumen 12 volt bulbs new in package if you are interested. These are battery killers that can be run for no more than 3 minutes IIRC.
    I have one in a 9P body and tailcap with a KT2 turbo head and A21 extender but I have only run it for no more than about 30 seconds at one time.
    PM me if you are interested.

    Is that a Halogen or the other type? I have a halogen socket for my M4 but no bulbs.

    He has both options, for xenon (7225 bulbs) which is a hair shorter and halogen (Philips 7387, 7388, WelchAllynís...).
    With each you will receive copper washers to postion between bulb and head reflector so you can focus it as you like.
