I have this same light, M962SU Millennium Universal WeaponLight System, but I paid under $300 bucks for one. Why have the prices gone up soooo much? I was thinking about buying another one, but NOT at this price. DAMN!

I think perhaps there are two points to make:

1) The price on SureFire.com is usually more expensive then what your friendly SureFire Dealer can offer you, even now after the changes SureFire have made.

2) The demand for these products is so high that people are paying this much for them because they are difficult to get hold of since SureFire can't make 'em fast enough.

I've heard it said that perhaps it's a way of trying to reduce the "non-critical civilian" demand while they try to keep up with Military and Agency orders?

Well, that's too bad for us civvies, then. I don't think I'm going to purchase another M962SU light for awhile then. Ha, and I thought I was paying too much for this light, what? about 2 years ago.

You're not even going to check how much it costs from various SureFire dealers?
In my opinion we should support the SureFire Dealers rather than buy direct anyway.

I bought 2 M962SU with 2 bulbs, tape and click on switch for $290 or so from the same seller on Ebay. Those don't have the colorful SureFire box, they have the brown box.

Hmm, now that's a good price. Thanks for the heads up!

Trust me, I won't ever buy a light from SF, just batteries. I bought my light from a vendor that I leared about here. I think it was Sable. Cool people to deal with.

So, BrightFlashlights, how much for the light that I listed with a six inch, plain vanilla tape switch? And how much for a the Nitrolon, 6-volt Combat light? The one the little o-ring thing? LOL.

"Nitrolon, 6-volt Combat light? The one the little o-ring thing?"

I think you mean the G2Z.
It comes in -BK or -OD

Sorry I'm no Shelby Chan but I hope you get the idea...

I just bought a Surefire M962SU06 last month from one of our board dealers and I paid less than $300. That was brand new in the box.

Focus on board dealers like everyone says, not factory sales.

Why don't they make a 9-volt G2Z?

Is the OD G2Z out yet? I haven't seen it anywhere. Maybe i will ask one of our friendly neighborhood SF dealers about them.

Size15s, do you know if SF is planning on adding anything else to the lineup using Nitrolon? I think the scout weaponlights would have been great in nitrolon. Any chance of them making weaponlights for long arms in the polymer material?

I don't think SureFire will make any other Nitrolon flashlights.
It's just not good enough at managing the heat of the higher powered incandescent and LED sources.
So that's why the Lamp Module will remain metal.

The G2/G2Z is about as thin as the Nitrolon can go and it still has a metal lining. Models such as the X200A and the ScoutLight are compact and small and light-weight. I don't think Nitrolon would give advantages.

But hey! SureFire work magic so you never know...
