Don't ask me why but I want this in the worst way.

I could think of a hundred ways to get into trouble with it.

M60 Main Battle Tank Search Light

Could a zillion candle power be right?

Anyone here ever get to play with one?

I want the three thousand lumen light surefire makes to attach to the M2HB.

The technical name of those devices is "Fart Cannons."

They sound pretty pitiful compared with the rumble from an old school 440 with glass packs.

It says "IR" searchlight. It sounds like it emits light in the IR wavelength which is useful for NVGs but not the naked eye.

You can FEEL the exhaust waves inside another vehicle. I raced a few 9-10 second cars at the 1/4 strip (because they lined us up) with my 15+ second Crown Vic. With my windows up and the thick Vic insulation, I could feel the pulsating exhaust pressure waves from the other car. I couldn't hear myself think even in my Snell M-00 full face helmet.

The ricers are just loud and obnoxious, but about the same level as the old school stuff.

Hey, you can use them against JBT's with nightvision, shine it at their eyes.

I believe it works both ways. You can switch between both modes.

I spent some time in Armor and served a few years on a M60A1 and we had those.
Do not recall which Gunnery Table it was , but it was a "troops in thr open" shooting drill and that bad boy would light up the troop targets out to 1500 meters.
It turned night into day in white light.
Do not every recall using it in IR mode , think our IR sights were always broken.

Edit: maybe we had M60A3? , heck I really do not remember now
We were the first NG unit to get the M1's , around 1990

I'd mount it to the front of my car, you know, high beams.

I did some research and it does indeed work both ways, has a IR filter that flips on or off.

1 zillion candlepower

Group buy! You can go hunting with that, just turn it on and blind/freeze the critters and open fire.

When a cop spotlights me for no good reason I can finally shoot back. How big are they, can i mount it on my A Pillar with an internal handle?

Doubles as an MRE heater!

I do like the M1937 Power Wagon he's got, too!

Will that mount on a quad rail handguard?

That would make a nice 'partner' to the tugboat spotlight I have now. 120V, 500 watts.

Made a mount for the Jeep, keep a 600W Honda gen. in the back.

eBay should cancel the auction. It's an accessory capable of fitting onto an assault weapon.
Link Posted: 10/3/2005 12:26:45 PM EDT
