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.”
A long time ago, in a land far far away, emitters were expensive, and modding was hard and unusual. And sites with modding supplies were rare!
Back then, there were P60 light. Buy a host, buy one or many drop-ins, and boom, tons of options! P60 lights were an easy way to try different emitters or modes or whatever, without actual modification.
They still are! Though modding is possibly more common now, and certainly easier (due to tons of helpful videos etc), P60 is still around and available. So that’s what I’m reviewing today! Some of the most common P60 hosts, and one of their available drop-ins.
Here’s one of those random reviews of a light (and items) that I purchase myself, and am completely free to say what I want. (That’s a joke; I say what I want about all items I review, no matter how I get them.) This is a light I’ve eyeballed for ages, but never ponied up the money for. I had a failed purchase through another site, so I decided to use that money for this light. It’s the Oveready Lava P60 host. I paired it with two drop ins; a 371d p60 triple drop in, and an Oveready DIP 8-mode 219c drop in. I’m excited to have this light, and glad to put forth this review!
