    Emitter swap: XR-C to ???

    Looking to upgrade an old lantern with a new emitter. It is on a 17mm board and labeled as 'Xlamp 7090.' No idea what bin it is, got the XR-C spec from the packaging. What sort of replacement emitter should I be looking for? Given the shape of the dome in the lantern, I'd like to keep the...

    Will Malkoff M60 fit SureFire M952 flashlight?

    Yes. Remove the black plastic ring on the base of the neck/shoulder that the poster above me is a referring to. Use the Malkoff washer and it will work fine.

    Surefire M900/M910 Question...

    Yup. Even my M951 is pretty aged for this day. My beef with the M900/M910 series is that the vertical foregrip (really a great idea on a carbine) is too close to the LED head and it makes you do the 'beer can' hold on the vertical foregrip. For example: The vertical foregrip grip in the...

    My new SF M952

    Did you take the plastic ring out of the LU60 adapter? If not, it won't work and will stretch.

    My new SF M952

    Probably because ARMS owner **** Swan will sue anything that breathes. What would be pure win would be a joint LaRue + SureFire offering (direct from SureFire). EDIT: As for now I'll just use my junky 951 screw threads...

    My new SF M952

    Bingo. That's what you need. It'll work.

    My new SF M952

    I've been using my Malkoff M60 in an m951 for months now... using Gene's little adapter bit. No problems so far. No dremeling either; it's completely stock.

    New Surefire E2DL 200 LUMENS?!?!

    My Alpha prefix serial number E2DL, advertised at 200 lumens, has a draw of 0.59A from the tailcap at 7.2 volts (2x RCR123s).

    New Surefire E2DL 200 LUMENS?!?!

    My E2DL, which came advertised in the box as 200 lumens, has an Alpha prefix. Methinks the Alpha/Bravo prefix on the serial number is rubbish.

    questions... U.S. Navy diving lamp.

    Called "battle lanterns." Several threads around here on them. And yeah, not really meant to be submerged, but are reasonably water resistant.

    Quark Tactical 123x2 on a shotgun?

    Agreed. I have at least 4 dedicated weaponlights... which is more than I have in terms of normal flashlights, go figure. Dedicated means devoted. Devoted means properly designed, properly maintained, and properly practiced. By the way, my X300 is 1/2 the cost of my pistol it is mounted to...

    Quark Tactical 123x2 on a shotgun?

    SureFire. Built from the ground-up for these sorts of purposes. With a proven track record of making quality attachments for weapons, there won't be a problem. Don't skimp if you are trusting it with your life. I would not recommend using a 'removable' light for a shotgun. Get a fixed...

    Help choosing Shotgun light

    Well, the stock is a Magpul MOE stock, run off a Mesa Tactical Enidine recoil buffer. The TPS has a slot for AR-15 style receiver extensions, and therefore stocks. Well, it depends on what you want to run for your light. My carbine has the Malkoff M60 (standard ~250 lumens), but for the...

    Help choosing Shotgun light

    Here is my heavily modified FN TPS (read: A modified Winchester 1300 to begin with) I agree with everyone about getting the standard incandescent 636 fore end assembly and then putting in a Malkoff dropin. One thing I did notice with the Winchester 1300 action is that it breaks open...
