Is there any info on threading specs used for the light bodies head and end cap for the Duel Fuel lights?

SureFire 6 / SureFire 6C

If anyone has photos they are willing to share of the 6/6C, they would be greatly appreciated!






I just picked up a 6/6C and I’d be happy to share pictures if you’re still interested.

Did Surefire changed their thread pitch...some say yes some say no

Some claim Surefire acknowledged they changed the thread pitch at a certain point in time, and this meant certain tail caps only worked with certain year models.

Others say the tail cap design was changed and this is the issue.

Does anyone know definitively? Thx

I have an orignal 6P from when they were called Laser Products. It says Laser Products Fountain Vally, CA on the tail cap. They did not make a product box back then. I bought it directly from John Matthews.

Always wanted and finally bought a KL2 The fact that it was attached to an M3 helped. I remember looking at it in the 2002 SF catalog and falling in love with it. Could never afford it of corse. Really can’t wait to play with it even though I absolutely know it is going to be extremely lame in output and beam Quality. Don’t see to many of them around.

KL2 an M3 got here and have to say that KL2 had to be a HUGE disappointment even in 2002😂😂 god it’s pitiful. SF sure can sell with there old catalogs. I remember looking at it and thinking it would be amazing.Still it is a piece of SF history. I guess.

Speaking of the M3, somewhere in one of these old Surefire threads, I can't find it now, but there's a picture of a light patterned after the M3, but it appeared to labelled M1. I know M1 is the Millenium Series IR illuminator, but this one looked like a black M3 with a Z32 bezel and it says M1 on the side. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Am I misremembering?

I'm hoping someone with some old school Surefire knowledge can help me out.

I remember there being a Surefire G2D-G3D Fluorescent Green fire/rescue light, not just the yellow.
But when I went searching for it, I could find nothing, not even 1 picture.
I honestly remember seeing some picture of it, maybe I'm going crazy.

Then I stumbled across this G3D on Ebay. I know they tailcap is not proper, but everything else
looked good.
Does anyone else remember these fluorescent green G2D/G3D's?
