    Default Difference between Surefire M3-CB and M3-HA

    For the people who have the Surfire M3 Combatlight, what are the Pros and Cons about the flashlight? Also what is the difference between M3-CB and the M3-HA, which one is better?

    It's a very good flashlight.

    M3-HA is a plain bezel finished in HA
    M3-CB (CB- Crenelated Bezel) is finished in HA

    It terms of light output there is NO difference, just the shape of the front edge of the bezel.

    I second what Double_A said. Have no regrets whatsoever with my SureFire M3 with the original Plain Flat Bezel!

    Enjoy!

    The M3-HA is has the standard "scalloped" bezel rim.

    The M3-CB has a bezel rim with more aggressive crenelations.

    Personally I find the standard scalloped bezels to be more practical for my uses compared to the scalloped bezels.

    I personally would go with the M3-HA, I dont like the looks of the narrowed bezel on the M3-CB. Plus they both have the same output.

    The bezel of the M3-CB and M3-HA is the same. It's the metal ring that retains the window that is either crenelated or scalloped.

    No, I explained that wrong. The bezel on the M3-CB has a narrow point towards the back.

    That photo is out of date. Long out of date.
    The M3 bezel styled with fins has not been in production for over a year.
