The most versatile flashlight with real power available!
December 19, 2014
I've been trying to use the to work less with my Surefire battery eaters and find other lights to use for training, The Surefire's through some outrageous light, especially the weapons lights. So far several of the LED's I've tried over the last 3-4 years say 500 lumens of extreme lighting, but my 125 lumen light on my carbine lights up a target at 200yds when the led's barely made it to 100yds.
I recently purchased an OLIGHT M3X from you and the games are changing, the setting of 800 lumens lights up a target well enough to engage at 250yds. The low setting is still bright enough to search a building or shoot outside to 75-100ish. The strobe however, when used inside is a weapon in itself. The people I tested it on weren't happy with me when I surprised them with it. Ease of operation, great battery life on low, which should be more commonly used in my experience for most inside work night or day.
Clearing buildings, looking through peoples vehicles at night etc. I would have been using low most of the time. Great light, great features and a great price for the product. I will be showing it off in my upcoming classes.
Pros:Power, features, strength, I'd have no second thoughts weapons mounting this light and that can be rough on them. I've seen a few break over the years, or run the battery dead because the department wouldn't supply the batteries for self purchased lights. When I made a point of saying to a cop class if you're not going to carry extra batteries for a light that eats them dead in an hour, and not carry the issue mag-lite, don't back me up on calls at night. It was expensive, but I always had extra batteries and bulbs, day or night. These are the same kind of cops that wouldn't shoot outside of the twice a year qualifications, and couldn't hit anything when the time came. my question was always "your life isn't worth a 100 round box of ammo at 19.99, to shoot twice a month and stay sharp"? If they aren't going to buy us ammo then why should we? TO STAY ALIVE Rambling again, sorry. Thank you for letting me voice my opinions, the light is new, but if it lasts, working correctly two years, that's one light, $100 or so dollars less that a Sure fire and less battery use, awesome.
