I am interested in the SureFire Scout Light M600A, I think I found a good deal on one for 250 and that includes shipping?

If it is the 'A' version, no.

You can get the much better 'C' version for around $300.

No, I've seen some M600Cs for $215-$250. I built mine for $215.

I agree.

Also, you could go with an Executive series body and KX2C head which would still be cheaper than a Scout. The Scout route is a bit more expensive than going with an executive series which is the same profile, and could also be pulled off and used as a handheld light. If you go with a clickie tail cap vs a tape switch you can save money as well.

I highly recommend brightflashlights for all your Surefire needs.

probably without the tape switch right? That sucker will tack on about $60-70 alone.

I have purchased nib M600A's on ebay for $200.
That would be a good price for an M600C.

Nope I got a tapeswitch but I don't use it. I bought all the parts seperate. I believe I have an "A" model body but I do have an KX2C head.

Why the surefire?

There are A LOT of quality lights available from A LOT of manufacturers that out perform the surefire.

I would recommend looking into the JetBeam M1X, Olight M30 or Tiablo ACE-G. More than twice the light for the money. Of course 700 Lumens may be a bit much for what you want. ;)

Edit: That surefire light only puts out 120 lumens? If that is considered a "scout" light, then your options open up considerably.

JetBeam RRT-1 and the Fenix TA30 make my short list.

What about an older scout with the KL4 head...what's it be worth?

VIKING TACTICS / SUREFIRE L4 LIGHT



Seems like one of the best deals going for a weaponlight right now.

About $175 to $200 depending on condition. This is with both the tapeswitch and click tailcap.

If you have the A model you can put the KL4 on an E-series body (making an L4) and buy a KX2C head for the Scout to make a C model.
Or sell the KL4 to recoup some of the cost of the KX2C.

The 120 lumens that SF publishes is grossly underrated. Actual out the front lumens is in the 170 to 200 lumen range, with some units hitting 210.
