Thread: Question about my M4 ...oval beam

  1. #1

    Default Question about my M4 ...oval beam

    Juat bought an M4 and the beam is quite oval, to the point that I really notice it and it annoys me. It looks oval with the 225 lumen lamp and the 350 lumen lamp. Is this a characteristic of the M4 or does mine have a problem?

    Mossyoak you are very generous. I need to add that the ovalness I'm noticing is not when I shine it against a wall, it is when it is outside and actually being used.

    mixerman:
    That is normal. The M3T and M6 are the same way.

    Due to some filament design some LA's have an ovalshaped hotspot and beam. That's normal.

    Yes, even the P90/91 are oval shaped too, due to the filament shape.
