Special Operations Series

Embodying the very essence of SureFire's modular approach, the Special Operations Series is a set of six handheld flashlights whose core components interchange with many of SureFire's weapon-mounted systems. Such compatibility allows the operator to make field-expedient repairs to his primary fighting light, pirating parts from his Special Operations Series flashlight for his WeaponLight. Lamp assemblies, lithium batteries, tailcap switches and even entire bezels can swap between flashlights and WeaponLights.

The Special Operations Series uses the same shock-isolated bezels and lamp assemblies used in the Millennium Universal System (MU System) of WeaponLights. Additionally, Special Operations parts from some models interchange with select Dedicated Forends, such as the model 918FA for a Remington 870 shotgun or the M510A for a Colt AR15.

There are five incandescent flashlights and one LED infrared illuminator in the Special Operations Series.The white-light models can be fitted with infrared filters to enable their covert use with night vision devices.The same IR filters also fit on weapon-mounted fighting lights— modularity at work.

The big dog in the Special Operations compound is the M6 Guardian. Using the same 2.5" TurboHead reflector and bezel assembly as the M500AB Dedicated Forend, the Guardian is a tour de force of white light. It comes with two lamp assemblies, a standard one for 250 lumens and a high-output upgrade that produces 500 lumens.That's enough to ID a target out to 500 meters (depending on atmospheric conditions). The Guardian uses a special quick-change battery magazine— swapable with the battery magazine in an M500AB— that holds six SureFire high-energy lithium batteries. The radically knurled body sports a look reminiscent of a World War II pineapple grenade. An M6 Guardian is the ultimate handheld flashlight, complete with a lock-out tailcap, wrist lanyard and waterproof construction— indeed the big dog.

The M4 Devastator, a four-battery model with a standard one-inch body diameter, represents the epitome of modularity. Not only can the lamp assemblies, tailcap and bezel of this ferociously powerful light interchange with select MU System models, but also the very flashlight itself can transform itself into a weapon-mounted sniper light. Called the Leopard Light™, the M4 Devastator can be ordered with a special set of figure-8 scope rings that allows the Devastator to be mounted to a rifle scope.The Leopard Light kit also contains a remote pressure switch that replaces the momentary tailcap switch. Of course both the tailcap and the pressure switch are interchangeable with other WeaponLights.The M4 Devastator produces 225 and 350 lumens with the standard and high-output lamps that come with it.

OPERATIONS

Because the overall size and performance of a three-battery flashlight is so well suited to combative applications, there is a pair of three-battery models in the Special Operations Series. Both are called M3 Combat-Lights, but one comes with a 2.5" TurboHead bezel and reflector, known as the M3T.

The larger TurboHead reflector of the M3T throws a tighter spot-beam than the standard M3 reflector— more reflective surface area to focus the light downrange.

The standard M3 has been upgraded for 2004 with a new "strike bezel" featuring a crenelated edge to improve its effectiveness as an impact weapon.

The pair of M3's both come with a wrist lanyard and a standard and high-output set of lamps good for 125 and 225 lumens. The lights also feature SureFire's patented "grip ring" to facilitate the use of a flashlight while firing a handgun.

The M2 Centurion is a two-battery model whose parts interchange with a number of MU System models and other select WeaponLights. It too comes with a grip ring, a wrist lanyard and two lamp assemblies (65 and 120 lumens).

The M1 Infrared Illuminator is the only Special Operations light that does not fully interchange with weapon-mounted models. It produces 10 milliwatts from a single LED, running on one lithium battery for 900 minutes.

Versatile, tough and interchangeable, the Special Operations Series is the ultimate expression of SureFire's modular approach to design.
