    Default US Government marked CMG Infinity

    Anybody ever seen a US GOVERNMENT marked CMG Infinity. It has a black haII finish. I bought this a couple years ago off eBay and haven't seen another one. Im curious if this was some kinda special run for the government or something.
    Any thoughts or opinions.

    Odd... I don't think I remember reading about a black government-marked Ultra... does it have the numbers marked on it, or just the 'US Government' marking?

    Mine's a dull green and has the "U.S. Government" and the USN engraved on the body. Got it from Countycomm a long time ago. Now I wish I had bought more.

    OK, is yours a bright one like the CMG Infinity ULTRA?
    or is it the dimmer longer running regular (non-ultra) Infinity?

    I have two of the CMG Ultra-G's from CountyComm the earlier one bought Dec/2002 has just US Government and the later July/2003 also has the NSN #
    The Ultra-G's are supposed to be HAIII and are very dark green -

    Maybe it is an Ultra never seen one or the regular version, but it is marked US GOVERNMENT no other markings. Runs off a standard AA battery.

    Mine's not very dark green. More like dull forest green (sort of the same shade of green of WWII Jeeps).

    Depusm12...

    While the Infinity and Infinity Ultra-G have similar exterior dimensions, the real difference can best be discerned by carefully examining the inside-back of the head.

    Take a look at the photos in the FlashLightReviews write-ups on each of these little gems. The Ultra-G head circuit-board/contact element looks different, with a big round gold contact area, plus some other minor features.

    Of course, the real practical differences are the Ultra-G's signicantly enhanced runtime and brightness level.

    Been around for awhile, NEVER saw a black CMG Infinity with US Government markings. (Edit: spent 21 years in the US Air Force as well - so I "kind of know my way around" the supply channels.) I don't mean to sound arrogant or belligerant here. I don't believe the US Government would ever accept HA II, though I may be mistaken.

    I "probably" own every version that's EVER been produced - including several that County Comm sold.

    Perhaps it's a "knockoff" - sounds that way to me.

    This is the ONLY mention ever of something like this and with over 11,000 members here on the CPF - I certainly "think" we'd know about it.

    Please prove me wrong? Things can be engraved you know...did you say eBay? Hmmmmm....

    Cool Re: US Government marked CMG Infinity

    Well I looked at the pictures on FlashlightReviews.com and it is the Infinity. It looks just like the one on left in UnknownVT's picture except it's black and the lettering is exactly the same including the white in the stamping/engraving. Being ex Navy (11 years in supply the other 2 1/2 in law enforcemnt) I have dealt with alot of issue items and am convinced it is not a knock off. Maybe a limited run for the government or even a fluke that was made in black instead of green.
