    You have the first model of the Surefires, a model 6 or 6 "c" as was called after the 6 P was launched in the market.

    The "c" is for civilian and the "P" for police, of course the P introduced the tactical switch.

    The 6 is smaller than the 6 P, is made out of a solid billet of aluminum drilled from the front (not as a tube as the 6 P).

    The little lights command good money when found in new condition, I sold two of mine (pay $60 in 1988) for $260 each.

    Black Bear.... Thanks for the info! That be the one! Of course I don't have any of the original packaging.

    I've been thinking of getting one of the G3's as an upgrade.

    Surefire G2 on duty with an E2e as a back up. The E2e also serves as an off-duty light.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    SureFire G2 when i'm just out and about...

    Night-Ops Gladius LED with multiple functions available through the rotating tailcap when in uniform (or doing fun training). It's 'spensive... but worth it!

    EZDYNAMICS:

    Did you stick with the 250 lumen lamp assembly? Or upgrade to the 500 lumen?

    IF you upgraded, remember that the light can do damage to an individual's retinas if it's shined into their open eyes (not that any of us cares if you do that to a bad guy, but ADs happen more with lights than with guns - thankfully).

    I own FOUR Streamlight SCORPION flashlights. I rarely if ever carry them because the tailcap switches are unreliable and the beams aren't very focused...but they make great task lights for hurricane use! Every family member has one nearby in case the power fails during the storm. Couple of spares, too.

    Sir, Thank you for the reply. I'm looking at the Ultra Stinger for general home use. Looks like Fenix has top o the line products now.

    No i never upgraded because its so bright now and was 400 bucks so spending any more would not be in order for me but streamlight would have been my second pick and im thinking of getting one later on, both very good if not top grade flashlights.

    STRONGLY recommend the BlackHawk Night-Ops Gladius... WELL worth the bucks for the versatility.

    My EDC is a Surefire E2O. It goes everywhere with me. If I'm traveling, then I switch to an E2D. My wife carries a Streamlight Scorpion. She prefers the feel of it to the Surefires.
