SO MANY NICE LIGHTS HERE!!!:eek::eek:oo::naughty:

Been a while since I've posted here...

Here's a VERY EARLY OLD SCHOOL CROSSHAIRS LOGO M3 Body that I just posted for sale over at the marketplace.:sigh:
The person who sold it to me said it was a prototype.
Thier husband works or used to work for SF.
Notice how the logo overflows the original "Flat" where the logo is usually contained....
Hopefully it will go to a collector.

Top: L6-PP(L6 Porky)
Left to Right: 6P-USA(Hex Head), PKEF3A – 5K, G2-Realtree, A2-BK, 6P-USA
Note: PKEF-5K has the V2-Vampire tailcap. The 2-stage-clicky PKEF-5K tailcap works really well on the V2-Vampire.

There are some Awesome lights in this thread! Curious, where/how do you guys find the rare and unusual Surefires? All I ever seem to see are the same ones over and over again. I'm fairly new to the collecting aspect of flashlights, even though I've rarely been without one for many years now.

Keeping an eye on the CPF Marketplace is a good place to start :)

Developing a few contacts in the know doesn't hurt, either.

My thoughts as well.

Regarding rare/unusual, here is a long-discontinued 'new-to-me' SF 7Z in near-pristine condition:

And next to a 9Z (in the background) for scale:

WOW, what a beautiful 7Z!

The 9Z can easily be converted to a 7Z by removing two of the rubber spacers and adding an A20 (if you can find one).

I don't really know how rare these 6P gift sets are, but at least they're NIP.
I purchased them last week and then carried them halfway around the earth, so the clamshell packaging got a little bent.

The are defintely not common. I used to see them at a local Surplus store. That is actually where I got my first gift set. I then hunted down the OD colored case too.

I got them from a surplus store as well.

Of course you had to remind me of the OD colored version! Thanks a lot, now I need to keep an eye open for one of those too! ;)
