    Anyone looking for L2P host in natural finish?

    I've been waiting to get a natural L2P host for cheap and now my wish has finally come true and I would like to spread the news. Lighthound is now selling them for $19.99. Better get one or two because they go by fast. I'm glad that I waited instead of buying one from ebay for $30.

    MN15 with Surefire M6

    I read posts about this and it seems like you do not need any modifications to your M6 for the MN15 to work. All you need is MN20 with 6 CR123s and the MN15 and you get 2+hrs of runtime. Can anyone verify this? Thank you.
