I had been looking for a “better” flashlight to take the place of the 6p I have been carrying around for a while. The factory 6p is fine but I, like most folk, had a burning desire for something more.
After recently acquiring a m600df I had decided that if I didnt have to use cr123a’s ever again then that would more than fine with me.
Unfortunately after perusing the Surefire website they did not have an option for a simple flashlight that accept 18650s as its standard. Well, outside of a model that is “intellibeam” and I wasn’t about to fumble around with a series of click to get it to light up without auto-adjusting the output.
After removing the head of the flashlight and o-rings I began drilling starting at the head end of the body. After about an hour of light pressure, couple breaks, I had bored it out wide enough for a Samsung 25r to slide in and out without any resistance.
Brighter than the Sun
Lastly we have the drop in LED upgrade. While 300 some odd lumens were fine and all I was able to find a two pack of drop in LED heads for $20 on amazon that put out 1200 lumens. Talk about a lot of bang for your buck.
All in all, I could not be happier with the fruits of my labor.
