I showed the switchback to a good friend of mine last week, and when I saw him again this week he had a new one on his old style 6p. He’s a long time PD vet and said that 6p was one of his first belt lights. I told him about malkoff a while back and he’s got an m61 in it too, and is happy to be using that 6p again.
I ordered a new head for the light above on Monday. Just arrived. Same lamp as before, 1.8A A3718 140Lm in a Tad Customs E Socket on Vapcell H10, but now with a Lumens Factory Smoothie head and QPQ bezel. The second one is a Surefire Elite BK head with a brass bezel (that desperately needs polished) and convex lens running 0.51A Surefire MN02 ~18Lm, also on Vapcell H10.
My wife is a gardener and these are her favorite bedside lights. With M61 WL and hi/lo switch and the ability to tail stand, they give her everything she needs. Plus the flashlight itself as well as the light out put are both lovely!
