I have the plain M3. Other than the LED any other differences from mine? Is it collectible and what would be someone's estimation of the value of a new one? Thanks!

Hey Brightestbulb,

You have a plain M3, or you have the LED version M3LT?

If you have a plain M3, it would depend on how old it was. To me, that's the more collectible. There's lots of reference on here to determine age.

Not collectible to me unless bored for 18mm cells.

Then it's no longer collectable, it's modified. There are M head, C tail bodies out there that would work with it as well, and keep the light original.

@sween1911...I have both. My LED one goes up to 800 lumens. I saw another one for sale but it said 1000 lumens. Could not find info if that was even made or a typo. Anyone know???

Last gen of M3LT was 1000/100 rated at 52400 candela. Nice light with open optic design, no longer fresnel. Still a thrower. Head is KX9T-C or KX9T-C-S for strobe version.

Has anyone seen or done a runtime graph for last generation of M3LT (KX9T-C or strobe head)?

I'm looking for information on how well regulated it is for that 45 minutes or so (SureFire specs say 1.5h ANSI).
