Are the SureFire Turbo heads and bulbs interchangeable? I have a M4 I am thinking about running a KL6 on which would free up the Turbo head which I am considering running on my C2. So a more specific question would be (realizing that I would have to get the adapter plate from lighthound so a M4 Turbo head would screw onto my C2) Can I run a N2 LA in a stock M4 Turbo head? Are the LA's all interchangeable?

yes the lamps are interchangeable, but the M4 heat wont fit directly to the C2. What you need is not a C-M adapter (although easily available) What you really need is the KT2 collar and exchange it for the colar on your M4 head. Size15 will no doubt confirm or deny this.

If you can't source the KT2 collar, then yes, I'm sure the C-M leef adapter will work just fine.

You will be lucky to find a N2 LA, your best bet is to get either the N1 and use it on 2xcr123s in your C2, or an MN15 and run that on 2 x 3.7c protected RCR123s.

Yes, the N2 can be used in the Millennium TurboHead (for example in an M3T) although this combination ["N" type TurboHead Lamp Assembly] should not be used in a WeaponLight or any mission-critical illumination tool, especially one that is subjected to a 'hard life'.

In broad terms, yes, TurboHead Lamp Assemblies are interchangeable. There are some combinations that don't tend to work well together but this is not the case here.

The Millennium TurboHead as used by the M4 is not the same as the TurboHead used in the KT1/KT2/KT5 kits so the adapter collar used by the KT1/KT2 kits will not allow the Millennium TurboHead to attach to a standard body SureFire such as a 6P/G3 etc.

If you want to attach a Millennium TurboHead to a standard body SureFire (such as a 6P/G3 etc) then you need an aftermarket adapter collar which I assume is called a "C-M adapter".
