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.”
Today I have for review the second in my collection of Malkoff lights. This is the MDC HA 1CR123 (that’s the full product name). It’s a hard anodized (HA), single CR123 (1CR123) light, with three modes.
I’ve heard a lot about Malkoff lights – they’re highly regarded for being extremely robust, well built lights. I reached out to Malkoff, and they agreed to send a couple of lights! This is the first, a 16650 XP-L HD NW light.
