    The C2 remains one of the most eye-catching lights ever.

    Agreed I love the design, but I am also torn with the z2 as well. Maybe both are my fav medium size surefire flashlights.

    I prefer the Z2. But it's really six of one, half-dozen of the other.

    Outrider- That's a newer production light, mod away! The value there is as a solid user, they're not as rare as the older style. Just as cool, though.

    There were a few different generations, but the crosshairs logo is a major point of difference

    Should I decide to change the m61n out for another, what are some good options for narrow throw modules?

    I think you'll find no better blend of flood & throw than your M61N; there are certainly compromises when additional throw is attempted in a relatively narrow platform such as this - if you were to cover that option, a much better selection would be a larger Malkoff flashlight - the Hound Dog.

    This reminds me of when I started with CPF something like a ~couple yrs ago; I thought 'throw' was the way to go, but after a few years of using high-performance lights, I better understood the utility of having considerable flood to a beam - and now I'm a flood addict, lol. :-/

    My move towards finding lights that are good for throw isn't because I want the distance per se, but because I want the tight, focused beam that is inherent to that design. I use head lights that have great flood and now want to find hand helds that are the opposite, for pinpoint lighting.

    Got the M61N in and it's definitely an upgrade over the incan bulb, both in temp and pattern. Quite pleased with the upgrade.

    On another note, found a second Surefire light in my C bag but this one has no markings beyond the Surefire name. Gonna try to post a photo for ID soon. Has a click tail, relatively smooth body, High/Low modes and is LED. Same length as the C2.

    17670 is old format, 1600mah and barely 3A discharge.
    New 16650ís are the same site as 17670 but eith 2500mah capacity and can deliver 5A and sometimes even more

    Yes sanyo 16650 is where its all at.

    Most of mine bar 3 surefires are standard, and to be honest i prefer it that way. Granted i can not run my powerful drop ins as high on 16650 fuel, but for when i want to(not often), i can use it in a bored host.

    Kinda figured it was something like that, looks like I need to step up my game and order some cells. So the AW stuff is not where itís at anymore?

    How about 18650, and changes there?

    18650- Samsung 30q are good all rounders. Sony vtc6 (vtc5a as well)also, many more of course. Just make sure Sony/Samsung/Sanyo /Panasonic /LG. But latter getting less and less I think.
    A good all rounder the 10a 3500 Sanyo/Panasonic , but still recommend the 30Q over these. I am not fully up to date as not needed cells for a while.
    16650- Sanyo inside, naked can be charged to 4.35v(4.2 is fine for about 90% charge). Keep power wrappers are protected button top 4.2v. As long as not using crazy quads, those will be fine for most applications.

    I've been out of the hobby for quite a while, I had no idea about this.
