SUREFIRE WEAPON LIGHT
RECHARGEABLE CONVERSION
345 LUMENS
TWO HOURS RUN TIME
$175 shipped

Hi guys,
I have made a rechargeable conversion of a Surefire 6P flashlight, into a weapon light of 345 lumens.

You can mount this baby in a 5.56 mm a 50 caliber or a shotgun, it will shrug recoil no matter what caliber you shoot.
How come?

I have machined the interior of the Surefire body, to accept the use of a premium quality Lithium Ion rechargeable battery. This machining operation left a lip of metal that trap the battery and make it immoveable.
No matter how strong is the recoil the battery is trapped inside the body with no place to go. Others lights allow the battery to move forward under recoil and batter the lamp.



The special machined Surefire body is a part of the equation.
The Lamp is a new one it is the new Cree R-5 and output and incredible 345 lumens (well more than any Surefire weapon light)

The tail cap has a remote cable switch with pressure pad, so you can place it on the stock of your rifle or shotgun, under your thumb. Yes thumb pressure will activate the light.

Usually this type of light uses 123’s batteries, they go fast under the power of 345 lumens, so we opted for a long run time battery, rechargeable, that will last you close to 2 hours of run time.

Moreover, when you are unsure of how much battery juice is in the battery, just pop it into the charger and you get a full charged battery, ideal if you practice much night shooting with your AR.
You cannot do that with 123’s primary batteries unless you are willing to dump expensive half used batteries.

Li Ion technology will provide extend use if you don’t use the light, an occasional full top charge every 5 months will keep the battery at full capacity.

We have used a crenellated bezel up front, but I also have available a Z-32 Surefire bezel with no crenellated, if the customer so desire.

I provide the light with a Weaver ring, so you only have to attach it to a Weaver or Picattiny mount.
E-mail me if you want to mount it on a sporting rifle and need to know which mount to use and where in the rifle to put it.

I provide the charger with a a/c d/c cord, so you can also charge from your car.
Charger good for 110 to 240 volts, I provide plugs for Australian, European or UK if necessary

$175 shipped in the USA
$190 shipped International

If you are not interested in the rechargeable system, I provide the light with two 123's batteries.
In that configuration the light is $135 (With curly cord pressure switch and Quick Detach lever mount)

Also write me a this e-mail if you need more information or want to pay with money order.

If you PM me here, it will take longer to answer you, as I am working away from the computer, while e-mails I always can answer from my cell phone.

Thank you for looking

BEAM SHOT AND
MOUNTING OPTIONS FOR THE
SUREFIRE WEAPON LIGHT 345 LUMENS

Here is the beam shot at 30 yards




Here it is mounted on an AK using an UTG barrel mount



Here is is mounted on a Mini 14 in which a Weaver base was screwed and poxi glassed into the forearm

[

And here is mounted on the scope in the top position, but it can also be mounted side ways right or left.
It is possible to mount in the scope by using a gizmo I made ($25 extra)





I took these pictures with the optional flat bezel, I think that the crenellated bezel will catch in brush, and I like better the flat shorter bezel, but it is up to you,

One member e-mail me with questions about he pressure pad switch, and how good was under heavy rain.

I was willing to try it in a bowl of water, I put a clip on the pressure pad, so the light will stay on, and I submerged it for 15 minutes, while I took the pictures.

Not a drop of water got inside, not any bubbles raised from the seals.

It made me feel good.



Kind regards to all and thank you for looking

It can be attached to a shotgun magazine with this mount (Mossberg 500)



Or to the barrel of any shotgun (like in this Remingtom 1100)



Or to the barrel of a Sporting rifle



Or to the scope



And they will quick detach and attach.

Cheers

If you want to mount the weapon light to a sporting rifle or shotgun, I have at extra cost, clamp Picatinny rails for rifle barrel, shotgun barrel or magazine tube and for scope.

E-mail me at
jcharles11784(at)yahoo(dot)com

for more information.

With my options I can customize the light to your needs, no other manufacturer offer this.

SAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS

Surefire weapon lights are very good, but they run on RC123’s batteries, which are costly (around $2 each for the Surefire brand).

A two battery Surefire will do 65 lumens for 1 hour on two batteries or 120 lumens for 20 minutes with the P-61 lamp.

A 3 battery weapon light will do 200 lumens on three 123’s batteries for 20 minutes.

That is $18.00 in batteries for one hour to throw a 200 lumens beam, with a lamp’s life of 36 hours.




You can see such a light (a Surefire 9P) on the picture left. On the right side is my offering of the tactical weapon light with a lamp life of 50,000 hours, running on a rechargeable battery with 2 hours run time, and outputting 300 lumens.


The battery life is 2,000 hours (it can be recharged 1,000 times) after that, a new battery will cost $23 shipped.

If you were to use the Surefire 200 lumens light for 2,000 hours you will spend $36,000 in batteries.

Stop wasting money in expensive 123’s and e-mail me for the tactical weapon conversion.
And it’s shorter and lighter too.
