Fact Sheet: SureFire 6P Classic


SureFire 6P Classic

The SureFire 6P Classic, followed by its bigger brother the 9P, was the first of the P-series lights.  Taking advantage of its modular design, the 6P could be easily reconfigured into rechargeable and Turbo-Head versions.

During much of its production life the light was simply called the SureFire 6P.  The terms “Classic” and “Round Body” are used today to distinguish these early versions from the later  models which have hexagonal bezels.

  1. Very helpful – couldn’t find any info on my old flashlight 6P Classic that I just found again. Wasn’t sure what type it was, what batteries it needed, etc. Impressive collection of flashlight info you have here.
