Anyone ever hear of these?

The shop I work at imports these things and I have to get one for my M4. I started off by thinking they where cheap rip off airsoft things... there not... There as solid as the real surefire and there only 200 bucks compared the the 520 that you pay for surefire. There almost the same but you cant interchange parts from surefire so no upgradeing. I forgot how many lumens it is, il find out when I go in but it is blindingly white....

Im a very anti-knock off guy so I dont like to buy stuff thats made to look alike something else but im getting one of these...

It is true the first ones that came in had ALOT of trouble but the new ones are all good.... trust me... Im in charge of testing every single friggin one at the store when we get slow.... we get a box of 60 and I have to take them out of the crates, then boxess open them up and test them and put them back in... but last time I did not find one bad one out of 60!

Well damn... they are good guess I will get one tomorrow when I go in.

there selling them for $199 here, and they do take online orders if anyone wants one...
I just mounted it on the M4, feels great, looks good so far nothing bad about it.
Yep, very usefull idea...
Why dont you start a random picture thread.
Only run about 400 rounds in it includeing one Beta C-mag in a few seconds. the heat did not bother it at all (100 rounds makes the rifle very hot) I would hurry and get it because they quit makeing them. We are out of stock at the store, but we did the the Beta 9's that are not foregrips.

no idea why they quit... It's such a great light looks and feels great. It lights up the yard and woods around the house when the dogs are barking.

Good news! talked to the manufacture early today (Hard as HELL to understand) And he said they will be makeing a new model that is built much stronger and it will be out in two months. Mine is still holding up fine, shoot it all the time even with C-mags and its still burning.
We do have the new Beta 9 Reco lights, but I dont like them very much.. Very bright but not as focused as I would like.

That light looks good for $108 Ever messed with one before?
Yep, thats the Beta 9's They sure dont sell as well as the foregrip ones... We sold tons of the alph 9's to police and sent a few to Iraq.
The new ones will be a tad more expensive but built stronger. I can see how the light on this one would not be good for anything over a 5.56 but how many people are going to put it on a G3 or FAL?
I guess on a choped down G3 or a para FAL... I knew someone would say it as soon as I hit that post button. :)
Yeah, we got the new ones in sometime ago as well, I like them much more and damn do they sell fast!

My older one is still holding up quite well to.

Heads up your about to see the price drop on them.
