    Post Show your Rare/Unusual SureFires - Part 3

    [Continuation from Part 1]
    [Continuation from Part 2]

    I've been wondering how many strange and unusual Surefires are out there floating around that need to be brought to the light...

    If you have any Surefires that have Laser Etching/Engravings or Lack there of, or Strange Colors, Darpa models, PROTOTYPES, Old and forgotten models, Flaws that slipped through Quality Control, or any SF light that you think should be posted that meets a like description. That includes Porcupines, Low serial numbers(even though they don't go in any particular order) and Anything Else UNUSUAL

    Please post em.....

    I have collected a few interesting SF items. I buy and sell parts all the time and occasionally I end up with some cool things. I still need a Black head/Tailcap for my Black L1 body, and some DARPA Heads would fit nicely on those bodies as well....

    Heres my list.

    1. NASA SPACE CREW Tailcap
    2. DELTA FORCE ONE Tailcap
    3. 9P-PH Sure-Fire LASER PRODUCTS DEUTSCHLAND Tailcap
    4. 6Z Tailcap with other 3P laser markings
    5. Sure-Fire 3P-PH LASER PRODUCTS DEUTSCHLAND
    6. Black L1 Body
    7. E-Series Head with SF LOGO Engraved
    8. KL4 with Nice tool-drag mark
    9. 6P Bezel HA III United States Marine Corps LOGO
    10. 6P bezel BLK "Safari Club International"
    11. NA HAIII 6P Complete Light-First Gen-*MINT*
    12. NRA Saten Grey 6P-tailcap
    13. Scoutlight Body with No engraving
    14. 3 X DARPA Bodies
    15. MH60 Millenium Series Weaponlight Bodies with "CIA-DEA Serial #"
    16. Unengraved/Laser Etched 6P/9P/E1e/L2/A2 Bodies
    17. "Skinny" LU10 Adaptor
    18. Surefire "PORSCHE" Flashlight

    Pics coming soon....

    Yes, thats is a 6P with SN# 000006


    SO..... LETS SEE WHAT YA GOT!!!

    I’ll start off with this one.

    A Surefire E2D in HA Natural.
    Dont think there are many around as they never went into full production.
    Always prefered the old green HA.

    Very nice the U2 PI is one of those lights that has always escaped my hands. I did see one on eBay sometime back but I took to long thinking about it and it was gone.

    I missed out on a purple inspection light a few years back on ebay. Still makes me sad to this day.

    Thanks guys It took me forever to finally get the famous Purple A2. Someone finally let one go about two years back. Just think some very lucking people have Purple C2's & Orange C2's so lucky. Its all so sad all those fine images are gone.
    Your got dibs than Black.
    I will post my full top 10 in the next few days.

    I just found some images on my PC. I saved from this thread part 1 I think I just wish I had saved them all.
    Note: These are not my lights just images I saved from this post.






    Hope the owners pop in here and say hello and maybe tell us more about these gems.

    Nice Remington L5 I have only seen the Remington logo on a C2 Black HA before I think.

    Lighting is a big part of taking a good pic I have found.

    I don't suppose a lot of gun metal versions were made back then....

    Certainly there probably aren't a lot left.
