L1-RD, Niiice! I hear you about getting into the flashlight game too late. The unfortunate thing for me was I was using flashlights and headlamps all the time for work from 01-05 and was buying any ol' elcheapo light I could get my hands on usually a POS from Walmart. If I only knew about CPF then...

If you knew about CPF then, you'd be a poorer man now! :crackup:

Was very nice being the first person to take this thing out of the wrapper.. With it's KX9T-C ready to give it a new look.

The picture isn't showing up - it says "the image you are requesting does not exist or is no longer available".

Don't know why it did that. I've got 5 more incoming now. My wallet fits better though :/

Whatever you did to change the post, it worked. I can see it now! Perhaps it was a bad link.

I bought a NIB M4 a few years ago, and I know exactly how you feel. How does that knurling feel? Like it'll rip your fingerprints off? I love that feel...

5 More M4s!!?? Ha! or 5 more SF lights?? Opening vintage stuff like that has a unique feel. On one hand it does feel excellent, on the other, knowing you are breaking the fresh wrapper on something that has been kept that way for so long has a gloomy side. :) But they are made to be used and shown off! So I am like you, out the wrapper they come!

The image was deleted from imgur. Guess they don't like SF lol. But yeah I've missed this knurling so much. It can't be beat. Nothing compares to how they feel in your hand.

Yes of course 5 more M4s :p

Nah I've got an L4 coming toda.., a NIB M3 CB, NIB e2e, mint Z3, NIB E2D, and still in its box first gen 6Z coming later.. it's been a productive week :)

Still searching for a mint e1e that isn't 400 dollars though. Most I find are astronomically expensive or modded.

Holy cow, that's like the ideal Surefire starter kit. You'll enjoy every single one of those lights.

Got my E1e lol

Had I made it to the yg A2 I would have it. Going to have to drink a few beers before I pull the trigger on the white though.

It's been a few years since I've added to my collection and this week alone has been pretty brutal. Why do I have to like the expensive stuff :(

Search- Could you kindly post a pic of that KX9T-C head on your M4 body? I'd love to see how well they go together... :)
