I ordered this, now I have second thoughts about it. Does anyone else have this for their Surefire? Did I waste my money?



My main concern was to provide secondary protection to flashlight lens window


Beamshaper for flashlights with 1.62" diameter bezel

The FM14 Beamshaper converts the focused high-output beam of a SureFire flashlight to a softly diffused wide-angle beam for closer range, non-tactical applications. Applying thumb pressure to the locking tab releases the cover; a spring mechanism keeps the open cover out of the way by holding it flat against the flashlight. A cam-locking lever keeps the entire unit securely attached to the flashlight.

Good point, thanks..................

How does the beamshaper works mechanically?

I just bought a Surefire M96 series that hasn't even come in the mail yet. I figured 125 lumens will be too bright for indoors, but I wanted one that I could use inside and out, so I took it. This lense cover will probably be something I'll need.

Actually, the 125 is perfect for indoors.

Yes, I see that now. Doesn't seem that much brighter than my 60 lumen Surefire. I guess it is better for the 225 lumens.

Never too bright for indoors as long as it's not "Your Eyes" that see the "White Light" befor hearing the "Bang".
