    Headlamp Like First Gen Surefire Minimus

    Thanks for the thoughts, everyone. Sounds like there really isn't anything comparable out there. Is anyone aware of a headlamp with a rotary knob that at least meets the other criteria? I would be okay with several modes if I could still get a ≤1 lumen low and one or two modes beyond that which...

    Headlamp Like First Gen Surefire Minimus

    I have a first generation Minimus Vision. I love the infinitely variable brightness, which can be easily and rapidly adjusted by the side knob. I don’t like lights with several defined modes, and I’m too impatient to press and hold a button to gradually increase or decrease brightness. As much...

    Anyone have a white LED ring they want to part with? Bonus if it's one of the aftermarket options.

    What cloth for cleaning lamp assemblies?

    I clean my MN02/3 and Lumens Factory bulbs with a cotton rag dampened with isopropyl alcohol. I've never had any issues arise from cleaning my bulbs using this method; I don't think any fancy cloths are really necessary.

    stuck Surefire pocket clip

    How much force are you using? I've had to use considerable force to pull the clip off my E2e with paracord. To re-install the clip, I usually seat the clip as much as possible, and then hammer the clip against a textbook, block of wood, etc.

    Surefire E2E

    Re: Is that a Maglite in your pocket, or are you happy to see me? Mine is slightly off center. The MN02 is one of my favorite bulbs. I have two, but I'm still looking for deals on extras. Also, the F04 diffuser pairs nicely with the MN02.

    Recommend a flashlight noob a weapon light for his AR15

    In my opinion, the interface of the P2X and G2X/6PX Pro is not suitable for use on a rifle, unless you're just shooting at paper or game. For one, it comes on in low first, It is also too easy to accidentally switch back to low once in the high mode. The only multi-level light that belongs on a...

    Surefire lanyard ?'s, (trying to find a T1A lanyard)

    I was going to offer to send you the lanyard from my SC3 until I saw that you'd already procured one like it. To make your black lanyard, why not use the parts you want from the SC1 lanyard, and then order what you don't have from Lighthound? They sell paracord by the foot, along with a couple...

    LED replacmemnt for SF G3

    Agreed, get a Malkoff. If you want more lumens than the M61LL, you can also run the M61L without heat buildup concerns. If you want something cooler than 4000K, you should probably stay away from the "W" models, and go for one of the regular dropins, like the one I linked.
