Shooters have been using Gene Malkoff’s bomb proof LED M60 and M61 LED modules for years on their Surefire Scout lights. These modules required the use of a adapters or special heads like the Valiant Concepts VME. Now Malkoff Devices has just introduced a brand new, dedicated E series/Scout compatible head.
The Malkoff E2/Scout 2-3 CR123 Head is is constructed of 6061 T6 aluminum and Type III Hard Black Anodized. It uses a custom reflector from the flashlight guru Don McLeish (AKA McGizmo) that Gene says will give a very balanced beam. This head utilizes a Cree XP-G2 and will push 235 lumens (that is actual measured out the front lumens and in my experience Malkoff Devices under rates their outputs) for 2 hours before it drops out of regulation and starts to dim. Even after that 2 hours, you should get quite a bit of useful light – it won’t leave you stranded with no light.
If you have a Surefire Scout Light or E-Series light laying around that needs updating, this looks like a great option. Nobody builds LED modules as stout as Gene. If this is anything like his M60 and M61 modules, it is going to be awesome.
