Re: Post Your RARE/UNUSUAL SUREFIRES:

I'm away from my collection at the moment, but I might be able to get some pictures up next week:

1. Purple A2
2. Olive drab 6P - PK logo on bezel.
3. 6PD with large (SF) logo on the bezel. Possibly a prototype/early display model. Still has the standard 6P markings on the body.
4. Titan #399 - plenty of these out there so I guess they're not that special.
5. SureFire 6 (often referred to at a 6C).
6. A number of different 6P models: purple anodized 6P, 6P-SCI-BK, 6P-NRA-BK, 6P-NRA-GM, Laser Products 6Ps, both generation of Patriotic Spirit 6P.
7. WineLight II

Probably a few other odds and ends but nothing I can think of at the moment.

Regards,
Tempest




Were you able to gets some pics yet?

I'd love to see more of your lights:grin2:

Re: Post Your RARE/UNUSUAL SUREFIRES:

That gen5 looks interesting! 10 leds and an large incan? Perhaps the regulated incan you were referring to?
I sure wish SF would make more regulated incans, especially the likes of a full size A2.
I wonder when Pk will make the photon king 3 with a P7...

Great thread. While I have nothing to add to it, I always love to see variations and rarities...Hmm I wonder if Surefire made any odd colored lights for Easter. I'll have to stop by and check the case in the front desk area.

Re: Post Your RARE/UNUSUAL SUREFIRES:

Since this seems like the right thread to ask this, I was wondering about the Surefire ICE bezels. If I remember correctly they were something like KL1 optics with a Lux V instead of a Lux III. I do remember seeing a picture with the PK logo on these and remember a comment from someone (maybe Al) that PK had a limited run produced for friends. I'm guessing that is what the HA III BK E series body is topped with in McGizmo's picture. I was curious as to how they performed and what those who had them though of them?

Re: Post Your RARE/UNUSUAL SUREFIRES:

WDR65,
I have a few bezels that I frankly don't recall what they are or if they made it to production or not. There were some, like the one pictured I believe, which were "E series" versions of the original X200 head. These had a sharp image projection. Later optics softened and opened up the beam angle a bit. Sorry I can't be of more help here. Al is the one who knows...

On a related note, when I first met PK, he had some 5W protos and this goes back to before Lumileds was producing white 5W Luxeons. These protos had some cool looking deep grooves resulting in significant fins, on the heads. These obviously never made it to production and since PK town had been dismantled, images of these may never have seen the light of day. PK's collection would be something to see and to some of the flashlight collectors probably akin to King Solomon's Mines!

Re: Post Your RARE/UNUSUAL SUREFIRES:

Hi Don, wow, i didnt know you had a Photon King 2
Probably not a lot of people remember but i still remember the Photon King 1, the furtherest throwing side emitter ever made. What resides in the Photon King 2? a 5W?
thanks for these pics.
Is that generation 5 an A2 style light with bigger reflector and with a similar or same body as an M6, so longer run time?
best regards
Des

The PK2 initially had an X bin 5W but now sports a Seoul P4. Probably next up would be a Seoul P7. The P4 has a tiny spot that gets way out there but kind of silly. I assume the P7 with a larger image would have more beef in its spot but it would likely be quite collimated as well. :thinking: :shrug:

Yes on your Q about the Generation 5 light. If I am not mistaken, both it and the larger head proto both have regulated M6 HOLA's for lamps.
