    Anyone have any experience? I know they are/were in pretty common use with the military.

    I’m seeing them on eBay in the $70-100 range and I’ve heard of them even going for $30-50 in some surplus stores(which we don’t really have an abundance of in this area.) I’m a Surefire fanboy, so any Surefire WML for under $100 has my attention. I know the output and batterylife aren’t the best(but bulbs can be upgraded for relatively cheap,) and it’s old tech, but there’s still the cool factor and every Surefire product I own has been an absolute tank. If nothing else I figure it might be a decent option for my truck gun, since it won’t break the bank.

    Unfortunately, I no longer get my 50%~ off discount on Surefires or I would probably just order a new Mini-Scout.

    Yeah I’ve done more research into them. Still want one, just haven’t pulled the trigger on one yet. Cash has been tight since I originally posted this between taxes and my truck tag.

    I have two with the factory bulbs and they are not very impressive compared to newer light. This post made me order a 1000 lumen bulb so I'll see how it works in a few days.

    That seems to be the common thing to do. Be interested to know what you think.

    I just took the new bulb outside and it works great! A lot better than the factory bulb. I did have to remove the big spring from the new bulb.

    Less than $8.00 with free shipping, hard to beat!
