Enter the Redcat Gen8 International Scout.  Of course I love this thing because it’s orange, but it checks off so many of my boxes, too, I am excited to give it a look.

Malkoff M61L P60 Dropin with Cree XP-G2 (CW) Review

After my Surefire G2 review, I talked to Gene Malkoff about sending some LED replacements.  He agreed and sent the M61L, which is suited for the nitrolon body of the Surefire.  He also threw in the package the big brother of the M61L, the M61, which is similar aside from the “L” – where “L” stands for “low output.”
