Multi Holster SureFire R1 Lawman Kydex Holster

Multi Holsters R1 Lawman Holster

The SureFire R1 Lawman is one of the finest rechargeable duty lights available with a winning combination of solid construction, performance and features (R1 Lawman Review).  However, with no holsters or other carry options available from SureFire, many R1 Lawman owners have had to “make do” with gear designed for other similarly sized lights.  Thankfully a Michigan company, Multi Holsters, has responded to this need with the first and perhaps only holster designed specifically for the R1 Lawman.

Available with either a one-piece “Multi Roto” or TekLok belt clip, the R1 Lawman holster is priced at around $60 for the TekLok version.  A sample equipped with the TekLok clip was provided by Multi Holsters for this review.  Continue reading

Going Gear Visit

OK, I admit it.  Writing about a visit to a store is a sure sign that I’m a flashlight nut.  It’s my burden to bear so let’s just move on . . .

I had to travel to Georgia for work earlier this week and, since my path took me through Atlanta, there was no way I could pass up stopping by Going Gear to check out their new store.  I visited their old store 2 years ago and was looking forward to seeing what they had been able to do with all the extra room and check out their flashlight selection (of course)!  I think I can safely speak for most flashaholics when I say that Going Gear is the “go to” place when it comes to the latest and greatest offerings from a huge variety of manufacturers.  Continue reading

SureFire Filters and Diffuser

Mini-Review: SureFire Diffuser and Beam Filters

SureFire F04-A Diffuser, F05-A Red Filter, and F06-A Blue Filter

SureFire has introduced three new attachments – the F04-A Diffuser, F05-A Red Filter, and F06-A Blue Filter – made to accommodate the 1.125″ bezel used on recent flashlights and weapon lights.  Designed to slip over the bezel and remain in place using a friction fit, these new attachments allow users to modify the standard beam of their flashlight for specific tasks.

When performing close tasks, the F04-A Diffuser provides a white, evenly diffused beam.  When preservation of night vision is a priority, the F05-A Red Filter produces a beam of red light that will not degrade night vision as much as white light.  As some animals see poorly in the red spectrum this is a useful filter for hunters moving about in pre-dawn hours.  The F06-A is a blue filter designed to produce a beam of blue light which is useful for hunters tracking wounded game in the dark.  All three attachments reduce the intensity of light output making them useful for close-range, non-tactical applications such as map reading.
