I have an ARC Firefly and want to upgrade the flashlight end. It runs on 2 AA cells. What's the best bulb I can use?

What type of thread is the head end? If it's e-series you could try an MN01 Surefire lamp. I run one off of two AA's in an E2L-AA body with an incan head and Z57 clicky.

No not an e-series. Works with a standard p13.5s base bulb. Thanks for the suggestion.

You didn't specify what you meant by "best"

There are an awful lot of 3 volt incandescent bulbs. High-draw/low-draw. Long bulb life/short bulb life. But why on earth would you want one of the old bulbs? I'd swap it out for a cheap 3 volt LED, and get twenty hours of light instead of two.
