Trying to pinpoint this specific model to get the measurement specifications and wondered if anyone here happens to recognize the Surefire flashlights here:

It's got crosshairs on it but I'm still thinking it's photoshop or fake.

The "VER" text plus what looks like a multi-conductor cable (fiber optic ?) of some sort seems like it should be a clue... but I'm drawing a complete blank. Never saw anything like that before. It does look like it might be a one-off (what we did before Photoshop :)).

The bulbs seem to have frosted tips - I don't remember seeing those on SF lights before.

OP, any chance of a picture that shows the entire light ?

Most P61's and P91's have frosted tips, but not all. Some P90's do as well. The logo below the SF logo kinda reminds me of some variation of the Dvor logo in a weird way, but obviously there's no E in that one. The lens looks like some kind of press fit or pop in lexan.

The most likely scenario for the production company is to go out, buy a couple flashlights, and build a quick cheap prop around those. Doesn't seem likely they would go to trouble modifying anything more than necessary, especially when time and cash are a factor.

Not photoshop. this is an auction photo of a TV prop. The production would have gone out and bought a couple lights to stick into a prop as quickly and cheaply as possible. No sense wasting their precious time faking flashlights you could just buy.

from my limited knowledge with people working in the movie/film/production industry, if this is a prop, there is a 99.9999999% chance then this has basically nothing to do with surefire, the two heads probably came off two old 6P variants someone had lying around and the rest is probably some other junk they had lying around. no one in their right mind would use a prototype just for show ( generally speaking of course )

^ agreed, looking at the hack job on countersinking hole around the hex head screw, it was hand made in a garage. Possibly a Hollywood prop for a 007 movie?

That is exactly what it is. they made a prop and stuck 2 flashlights into it. My aim is to find the flashlights they used.

I have all the info i need to recreate the prop part, it's sourcing the flashlights they put into it that is my problem at the moment.

;)

I'm by no means a Surefire expert, but the heads look like an early Surefire 6P head with crosshair logo? The "VER" might be "REVOLVER?" The small swoop logo looks like a revolver's cylinder?

If it indeed is a 6P head, then the dimensions will be easy to figure out as they are very common (I have four in my collection). However, that exact variant might not be readily available.

Yes! and Excellent thinking there on the details. Something in this vein:
