I wonder why they chose to discontinue it? Probably because with the L5, U2A, etc they may have felt it was redundant. I think if they stuck a SSCP4 or Cree R2, etc. it would've been fantastic. I guess I have to do the next best thing, I am still SERIOUSLY thinking about getting the M3 and doing the LumensFactory D36 mod. Looks like it will give me what an updated L6 would be anyway. Still with that long, deep reflector, it would throw an awesome beam out.
