Re: Post Your RARE/UNUSUAL SUREFIRES:

I'm not sure if they're rare or unusual, but they are the oldest ones I have. Probably close to 20 years old, they are weaponlights designed for the Beretta 92. No Surefire marking at all, just Laser Products. I would have posted these for sale awhile ago but have no idea what model they might be or how to price them. They work perfectly though.

Re: Post Your RARE/UNUSUAL SUREFIRES:

Rverdi,
Those are very old indeed!

SureFire made a version of the Beretta 92F/SB called model 633R and another for the Beretta 92F called model 637R.

What's interesting (to me anyway) is that you have not only the old-style remote, but the original style remote (the tape-pressure switch that is secured by Velcro)

The last style remote to be released was like the old SlimLine.
Whatever, the original version of the loose tape-pressure switch.

Photos of the other side, and from above would be excellent if you wouldn't mind please!
I'm predicting there is unlikely to be a constant-on rocker switch as there looks to be a forwards-backwards shuttle switch found on the earlier versions.

Actually, I'm not that certain which order the various different versions came in other than the loose remote tape pressure switch version was first.

Al :)

The "SWITZERLAND" part is interesting.

Al, what's your take on that?

Al,
Thanks for the info, I'll try to post pics of the other side tomorrow but your correct about the switch. What is different between the 633 and 637?

In the old days when getting SureFire in Europe was even more difficult than it was today I guess it was an enticement to support Swiss SureFire Dealers and the Distributor likely ordered a sufficient number to have them customer-etched.
I don't think they are especially rare or unusual - at least not in Switzerland, but to a collector or interesting SureFire variations it is likely worth having one.

I don't know but there must be an obvious difference between the Beretta 92F/SB and the Beretta 92F that means they can't accept the same WeaponLight housing and/or mounting mechanism. From what I can gather the "92F" has a slightly reshaped grip and trigger-guard.

Re: Post Your RARE/UNUSUAL SUREFIRES:

N ow it makes sense. Yes, the SB is the older design, rounded trigger guard and slight difference in the frame contour. F has a square trigger guard, which is what these are for.
