Yay! New carbine stuff! Surefire Scout Light

I got this little bad boy given to me today. How I got it is a little convoluted, so I'm not gonna go into it, but I will say this: its handy to have connections. lol!

The Scout is based on the Executive Elite series of lights. They have a sub-one inch body diameter, which the 6P and it's cousins have. There's an internal mount that's machined as part of the body, and the head is one of Surefire's new LED lamps and TIR lens that focuses the beam. Expensive, but soooo worth it. Shwaggie looks very sexy with her new light. Chances are more than good that the tail cap is going to be replaced with a non-shrouded one, and the light will probably be moved back. As it is now, I have to change my grip to actuate the light reliably.


Make sure to note the Knight's Armament flash hider, a gift from a high speed friend of mine. Like I said, it's good to have some connections.

I like the machined-in mount bit, that's awesome - one less interface to loctite! My Z3 is also the thinner type, but incandescent. Getting 100-lumens out of an LED is impressive.

There's an LED replacement lamp that'll fit your Z3, the P60L. 80 lumens for a very long time.

This has nothing to do with this post, but I took a look at the Smith & Wesson compact 1911 .45. Very nice. You're right about the Springfield.

Thanks Haji, I'll look for that!

I hate you, but I take solace in knowing that you're only cool for having one of these because I got mine first. :P

You had to pay for yours, though, right?
