I just looked at my non shock bezel Surefire 6p that I've had on an AR for about 3 years now. No problems thus far. Can someone explain to me how the batteries slam into the base of the bulb? There is a a spring that sits on the base of the bulb and pushes against the top battery. There is also a spring on the tail cap of the flashlight, so basically, the batteries are riding between springs. Is the AR creating that much force during recoil that the springs become ineffective in preventing the battery from hitting the base of the bulb? I've bump fired the hell out of this rifle setup and have had no problems yet. Since the batteries sit between springs, shouldn't this be enough to absorb the recoil?

I have photos of how a SureFire WeaponLight differs from a SureFire flashlight in order to isolate the batteries from the Lamp Assembly. Please email me if you would like to see them size15s@ntlworld.com Al
