I’m seriously looking into buying an elzetta bones. Can any that has one comment on the throw of it. Do you feel it throws at least as good as say a Malkoff M61? Thanks.
Right now I have settled on running a M61 in my Charlie. I was on the fence as to whether to put my M91 in it but the reduced runtime with the 91 is huge. Your taking maybe 45 minutes on high as opposed to something like 2 hours for the M61.but like I say I’m still on the fence.i think what I need to do is run the 91 in it and see what the output is at two hours. It might just be close to the 450 the the M61 is putting out. But doubt it.
I never bought an Alpha until a few weeks ago...I am very pleased with it so far.
Elzetta are designed around Close Quarter Combat scenarios, not Search and Rescue. The idea is that the user who needs to see at a distance is usually outfitted with night vision gear to avoid being spotted by a foe from a distance. They build lights with the flash/bang scenario in mind.
Malkoff are built largely for police and rescue folks who may be searching for a missing person or trying to spot a downed wire after a storm or wreck. Or the home owner who needs to see if the dog is barking at a racoon or a fox in the chicken coop (which was how Gene got started.)
I get the impression that the tail end of the tube is a bit sharper on the Bones, i.e. not flat, so the pin that works the hi/lo bit can sometimes find itself over the edge of the tube and not butted against it.
So it may be a bit hit and miss.
Don't forget flamer, a clicky with a lockout feature can also be used as a twisty with momentary.
Just leave it clicked to on.
The Bones comes natural HA where the others are black. I use the factory tailcap for a twisty at times but the travel of the button is geared for momentary and the click is pretty quiet like all Elzetta clickys.
