Pretty much all I plan on buying.
the grammar fairy has arrived.
oo: :laughing: Yea, no kidding.
Sorry, I was not speaking as a host builder but as a parts supplier. I've spent many hours helping to trouble shoot switch problems that ended up being drop in installation problems resulting from the overzealous application of thermal paste.
Probably not, really over-priced and under-teched, but very well built.
I still want to get a Jetbeam, a Nitecore, and a Fenix TK21 for my collection.
Gotcha - and please don't take any of my comments as...
[...] Surefires RETAIN their value and actually can GO UP in value... How many people collect old Fenix L1Ps or old Nitecores? They continue to drop in value from the day you buy them...
I found the above post of interest because I've reconfigured my flashlight collection a few times by now and:
If I were to sell off my entire flashlight collection, almost every SureFire I own would sell for more than my initial cost. That would not be the case with my other lights.
- Almost every SureFire (or SF component) I have ever sold went for (slightly) more than what I paid
- Most non-SureFires I have sold went for less than what I paid
Are you planning on purchasing, or will be purchasing a Surefire light anytime soon? If so, which are you getting? I have a Surefire 6P bored for 18650. I am thinking of getting another Surefire, maybe the same one again with a different engine. I am using a Malkoff M61W. Also, kinda wondering about the E1B Backup.
