Hi guys,
My wife lost her light that she was keeping in her handbag since 1988.
It was a Surefire 6 (not the Surefire 6P).
The Surefire 6 was a civilian light that Surefire produced before launching the popular 6P.
It was made with no tail cap and to switch it on you have to turn the head (like a mini maglite)

It was of sentimental value to her, and I am looking to replace it.
If you have such a light in new condition and wish to sell it, please contact me at:

This is how the rear of the light looks like.

All the best

Black Bear

Great post. You took a lot of time and effort in doing it and I'm sure it will help some LEO's and others out. Might even save a life.
I retired as a LEO after 15 years in 1993.
The only choices we had were the Streamlight (full size,I still have it, a good part of the anodizing is worn off), the Stinger and a little later on the Rechargable Mag Light.
At the time, we though they were the best things in the world because prior to those lights coming out all we had a was a 4 cell mag light.
Lighting has come a long way since.
Your tests will help people decide what will give them the best chance for survival.
Just be glad you have the choices, the 4 cell mag lights succked bad.
It wasn't a lot of fun, especially outside looking for an armed perp.
The good thing was in those days we didn't have the video cameras and lawyers up your rear end near as bad.

Best Regards, John K
