On the heels of our very popular Q5 Drop In Lamp, we are pleased to announce the release of our brand new TX4.



We have had countless requests from our wonderful Servicemen and Servicewomen for a super-high output LED conversion head for their issued Surefire Millennium Universal Weapon Lights. The standard 60 and 120 lumen lamps have not been bright enough for MOUT operations. We incorporated that feedback into the design of our new TX-4. The TX-4 is a drop-in replacement head with incredible performance in a small package. Basically, you won't have a huge turbohead bezel hanging off the front of your gun. This new conversion head is extremely versatile when used with our adapters. Check out the specs:

I am very impressed! The only thing odd is how weak the M600C was compared to the X300. My M600C's ranged from 165-193L, so there is some variance with Surefire products.

Is this a 4-die unit? What MA is it driven at? Regardless, based on your beamshots, I am VERY tempted to include your product in my next AR-build. It looks like a real barn-burner.

I see that at 6V it is listed at 600L, what is the exact voltage cut-off that it is regulated at, and at 3V, is it running in direct-drive?

Also, the hot-spot looks similar on the X300 to this new head. How does the throw compare? Impossible to tell in room-photos, but out-doors is the throw a lot better with the new head, or is most of the extra light output in the spill? Do you have an LUX readings for this unit?

*Sorry for all the technical questions, but I am highly impressed with this product and think for a MINOR weight penalty over the M600C, it might offer some MAJOR illumination gain in quite the economical package when coupled with a 6PD/LaRue setup. Definitely liking it.

I have been waiting for this for about 2 years.

Will get one for my 500A when I can afford it.

I got to see this on Chips rifle at a Magpul Dynamics Class last month. Extremely bright!

It looks like a Malkoff M60 MC-E would look if it had "throw". I am very impressed with this product and WTB as soon as I get a paycheck!

If I were to run one of these units on my 951, could I use a 18650 cell instead of 2 CR123s?

All I can say is ! It's like walking around with a sun in your pocket. Recieved mine last week and have been joyfully wasting battery life since then. Next purchase will definetly be a five-way tailcap with strobe!!! I mean who dosen't need a 600lumen storbing pocket LED flashlight that will operate inside the seventh ring of hell!!

PICS:
What is that??4 LEDs

On the G3, for walking around, flashlight duty

Thanks guys...

Thank you for the orders of course and sure happy you gents like the new lights! We have another rounds down range marathon on-going with a few lights attached to some guns and so far so good after 30K (6 months) and counting.

It sounds as though you have firsthand experience with the devices, as well as indication of being a PRoC LEO? Both are favorable.

I ordered up three units today for my regular shooting partner and myself, based significantly on TNVC's historic reputation to only offer for sale top rate gear that has been thoroughly tested. This appears to be exactly what the M3 that lives in the nightstand with the Glock for things that might go bump in the night, as well as the M96x's have been longing for. Our expectations are high.

We have no doubts that they will perform well, and TNVC CS has also always been superb over the past several years, even before they have become more well known. Thanks yet again Vic; it was very nice visiting. Please wish Chip all our best as well.

I'm interested in one of these, but I couldn't help but notice the small gap between the SF body and this TNVC adapter piece. It appears on both the G3 and the 6P in the pics above.

Is this a fit problem, or do you just not have the adapter screwed down all the way?

I received mine last week and I have been doing nothing but burn up batteries. This thing is AMAIZING. It truely is like having the power of the sun in your hands. Mine is mounted on a Surefire G2 with clicky tail cap and mine does not have any gap between the adapter and the G2 body. Maybe the ones in the picture above have not been tightened down enough on the O-rings.

Received three of the TX4 whitelight heads yesterday, and they are very impressive so far.

The fit and finish is superb.

The beam is brighter and whiter than the factory incandescents [even the 225], and provides a wider area of coverage without sacrificing throw. They are also physically slightly smaller.

I have yet to do any livefire tests to assess durability, but would be extremely surprised if they don't hold up.

I will be burning up some 123's over the weekend to validate the runtime claims.

ETA - I forgot the obligatory pic:

That is correct; no adapter needed for the M962. The heads on the right in my pic above are TX4, M962, M3 respectively.
