    I didn't explain clearly enough....Probably because my thoughts aren't perfectly clear on the matter. I'm thinking that I don't want to introduce additional complexity to potentially life saving equipment. My main emergency lights are single mode...I only have 2 hi/lo ring lights from Malkoff. So it may be fun to have the option in one piece on a toy light. But for me, the hi lo ring is already pushing it as it is - with MORE variables it's a no go for MY use of Malkoff lighting.


    A caveat inducing question because I don't know EE, if the resistor (either the current ones or the "wishlist adjustable one") fell out or malfunctioned, would you have the hi or the lo? If the answer is definite and not either/or, I could plan around it....

    Could simply keep a "plain" retaining ring with your emergency gear

    That's what I do anyhow.

    You'd be stuck on High mode.

    Peter's shopping list:- HDS / Oveready 170N Exec/LE and an Oveready V4 Nichia Drop In. Otherwise I'm content. Want want want, that's me.

    Right, you'd be stuck on high mode. With the resistor or plunger switch hypothetically broken, the brass ring would function exactly like the plain aluminium retaining ring. Never seen this happen to a Malkoff, but I've read about something similar with an Elzetta, which uses the same tech.

    Of course. I do as well. My 2 hi/lot lights are never my only.

    PLEASE- donít misunderstand my reservation as a vote against. . I like choices! And thanks for the answers- that helps some. Still would prefer an assortment but maybe I could be on board with adjustable. Iíll leave it to the experts either way!

    Oh yeah, and a hi/lo edc sized AAA Malkoff.

    21700 version of the MD2, and MD4. Also, higher lux on a 1x21700 M61HOT with 750 lumens.

    I would like a 2D Maglite drop in with a long runtime low mode that comes on with the first press of the switch and then a medium and high. So, basically a Malkoff M361 for a Maglite. I would also like an MD2 drop in with only 2 modes that work with the clicky, much like the Surefire G2X Pro. That is mainly because at work I need one handed operation. I would also like it to have a little more throw than the M61, but more flood than the M61T.

    Coming back around to suggest a Hound Dog 18650 with a 219B high CRI emitter. Thinking this would be a grail light, and I'd probably be able to get rid of the rest (Psssh... who am I kidding?! LOL).

    While I'd love a high CRI Hound Dog, I don't think the Nichia 219 would produce enough output to satisfy the Hound Dog crowd. Eventually, there will be another option...

    The original hound dog was an xp-g led!

    In that case, yes, one can hope!

    I'd happily settle for the M361N being in stock.

    I was waiting for the M361N also. I bought the MD2 body from the Malkoff site with coupon and Illumn had free shipping (not sure if that still is) and got the Malkoff Devices M361 219B V3. I am very happy with it.

    Default Malkoff wish list.

    Not that Iím saying Iím wanting one really bad but Iíd damn sure buy it...why doesnít Gene make a WML in the vein of a SF X300 or Streamlight TLR? Like a pistol light I mean.

    I wouldnít mind seeing a hi low md2 with a tail switch only for variety. One click High, two for low.
