    The Duty Light that Surefire should be making!

    Some of you may have noticed that my interest in flashlights is in duty lights. I was an LEO for thirty years and therefore have some experience of using flashlight for this purpose. The current market leader in the USA is probably the Streamlight Stinger. Surefire released the R1 Lawman...

So I had a look on the Bay and found Carbon Fibre tubing for sale that was 17mm...

Towards the end of episode 17 of season 29 the officer stopped a vehicle containing a couple and found that the driver was a Meth addict, he then entered into a conversation with the passenger that went something...

    Malkoff MD2/MD3/MD3 Anti-Roll Heads

    Gene doesn't currently have plans to produce such an item but if there was enough demand then that may change. If Malkoff produced anti-roll heads for their MDX-16.5 or MDX-22.3 heads would you buy them?

    British Police Flashlights over the past 30 years.

    WARNINGThis thread won't get your heart racing!! I joined the Police in 1983 and in those day the only thing you got issued with, besides your uniform, was a pocket book and a wooden truncheon. My first night on foot patrol I was advised that I could book out one of the station flashlights...

    Surefire G3 refurbish or trash?

    I am new here but have used Surefire flashlight (torches) in the UK for years for duty use. I bought one of the original G2's when they became available and then converted it with a Surefire P60L drop in when Surefire started selling those as accessories. I also have a 6P LED and an E2L...
