    Don't count on it.
    I've been tidying up - I found an M6 in the boot (aka trunk) of my car along with an M4 and a couple LEDs lights of lesser consequence. I didn't realise I had them there as I had another M6 in a rucksack in the car also.
    Perhaps John Willis can put a velcro tab on his pouches so we can stick patches with the model number of the light inside? Somebody would have to make patches of SureFire model numbers. Pretty niche market perhaps...

    Which meant the pouched M6 I thought was on the floor in my bedroom turned out to be a 10X and the other 10X is still at my folks' house. I think.

    I've decided that having so many SureFires not being used is not healthy for them so I've been spreading them out and around my friends and family. Updating to the P60L has given many a more realistic chance of a worthwhile life. I may need to order a few more SF72BB's though because I'm feeding them all as well!

    MS Excel is your friend in this case! I keep track of all my gear via Excel spread-sheet, after I've once spent some weeks looking for a knife...
    (In addition I have three locations for storing all my gear.)

    The P60L upgrade is really great, so looking forward to the P61L.

    Here's is my newest and best Surefire. Cree modded KL6 on an M3 body with a Z59 and an after market 1 cell extender.
    Runs off of 2 x 17670's. I love it!


    LED's impress but Incans satisfy

    About time I posted in part 2 of this thread, I think

    Well, it's not a flashlight...but it's still a SureFire



    And one with a flashlight in it:



    It's actually a very nice pen. Very comfortable to hold, if a little heavy.

    To be honest....none of this craziness was ever planned! It just kinda happened...

    As for more additions....I'm always on the look-out for Rare or unusual Surefires....Especially a "Surefire 6"!!!
    I'd like to finish off my E-series collection and 6P collection. That means I still need "Winelights, 1st Gen. E1's and E2's, along with the rarities. As for the 6P's well, I have some catching up to do
    If the UA2 or UB2 ever are released I may end up getting one.
    If I buy anymore M6's, it will be something like the one you picked up. Otherwise 2 is enough for me. One gets used all the time and the other sits in my "Bug out bag"

    DaFab, what you really need is a large display stand....like mine...




    But I guess that you might need 2 stands

    Nice collection you got there, the 3P in OD always make me drool...

    I know this is a bit off topic, but wanted to address DeFab's bug-out-bag. I too am an M6 owner, and contemplated putting it in my BOB, but thought of the way it drank primaries, so opted to put my M3 with EO-M3 in my BOB instead. I've currently got 15 SF primaries in a Pelican case for that purpose. So counting the 3 that are in the M3, that leaves me with 6 solid battery cycles before needing to resupply. With the same # of cells and an M6, I'm left with 3-1/2 battery cycles. My question to you is, how many primaries do you store in your BOB? And how often do you cycle them out? Would it be advised to also store a long running LED backup in the bag, say for example a C2 running Malkoff M60LL?

    I personally would definately recommend a long running LED to add to the BOB. I have a few lights in the BOB including a 1st Gen. L1 that has good output and the batteries seem to last forever.
    I use a Lumens Factory HO-M3T bulb in my M6 for extended runtimes. I have 2 Pelican 1020s filled with 123's and a few spares carriers with extra bulbs too. Since the 123's have a shelf life of 10 years, they only get cycled if I am running low on cells. Bulbs will go bad, so an LED back-up is good piece of mind.

    Great comment, though...

    I put my cheapest SureFire (a G2Z w/P60L) into my BOB. For long time storage I would simply remove the cells and put them into a container. I have standardized on two cells for the similar reason. Easy to store and cycle... No more flashlights with 1x or 3x 123As for me.

    I too have my M6 in my BOB. but i keep the MN15 bulb in there for the long runtimes. I keep my spares carrier with a fresh set of 6 primaries and the MN21 bulb.

    Both the KL3 and KL5 started life with the more curved blend to the body. SureFire has since redesigned them both to have the sharper break and flat blend to the body.
    When I first saw photos of the new style I didn't know whether I liked it or not. Comparing the difference for real after getting some bezels with the new style I much prefer the new style.

    Heres my poor excuse for a growing surefire collection...

    E1L new dual output
    6P (edit: replacement 3sm q2 5a dereelight drop-in showed up today not sure if I trust it though as there is no mechanical "lock" between the reflector and pill. The reflector rides on the led and I am afraid that the new one will do what the last one did. Twist the emitter board and severe the wires since the darn thing isnt held in with anything but heatsink compound)
    G2Z-OD w/P60L
    C2-HA w/M60
    A2-HA-Wh
    U2A
    and Ive got an l4 inbound.......

    P.S. I guess Im weird though....ALL the lights axcept for the E1L and P60 are in their boxes
