Over the past several weeks, Calvin has set me up with three "systems", an M962XM05 for my carbine, an M3-CB handheld, and an M1-IR also for the carbine. He has also provided filters, mounts, and spare lamps/batteries.

Some specific examples of his "going the extra mile" include:

-test fitting the M9 at his shop to insure the proper length tape switch cable for my desired mounting location
-shipping a "loaner" component to get me operational for a class until the backordered item was available
-expedited shipping when requested, and prompt shipping when not expedited
-"no charge" restocking of an item that didn't work out well for me
-selling "half" a pair of ARMS #22L/39

About the only thing more impressive than the SureFire products themselves has been the most pleasant experience of dealing with someone like Calvin.

Thanks.

+1 more! Cavin is a great guy to deal with and as others have said he will go the extra mile to make sure that you are happy with your set-up and if you are not he'll do everything to make it right. Excellent prices and incredible knowledge make him the top on my list. Thanks!

BrightFlashlights has emailed me a few times when I posted about SureFire products. To me he seems like a go getter of a salesperson. I am interested in the M962 XM07, But I am trying to justify buying the M962 instead of the M961 or the M952, I'm just confused. This is the AR that I am trying to mount the light on. If I mount the M952 then I have built the Exact AR the the DEA has a adopted.

I too have been dealing with Brightflashlights and have to say that I've been impressed with every phone call I've had with these guys.

I can't wait to get my Pentagon Light setup for my rifle.

For those looking at the Surefire M96 light check out the Pentagon Lights as they are the same thing only a third of the cost!!!

Once the mount comes in for the light my rra will be complete!!

Send me an E-mail addy that I can reply to with attachments, and I'll send you pics of both the 952 and 962 on the same weapon.

Another +1 for Calvin.

I placed another order on Monday and it was waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday. His prices are just about the lowest around. He basically charges actual shipping, so he's making no profit there. And he knows his stuff!

Do you think you need more light than a DEA agent? Do you use a Surefire 9V handheld that takes the same bulbs?

Don't forget, if you use the high output (P61) bulb in the M95x you can get ~120 lumens for 20 minutes.

The M962 would look pretty big on that gun.

He got a C2 to me when I really needed it.
Thanks Calvin

I ordered a C2 from Calvin for a class, it had to be drop shipped from SF (SF is about 1 1/2 hour's drive from me). It got to me after the class, Calvin found out about it and mailed me a gift for SF's lateness, even though it was not at all his fault. With what little margin there is, to say he went out of his way to make a first time customer happy as to probably make only a few dollars, is an understatement. Come to think of it, I think I'm going to order something from him right now!
