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!

Yeah these have been available from Hong Kong airsoft shops for a little while now.

An airsoft review of this light is below. They are stating it's 250 lumens Xenon and 2 Low light LED's
yeah there's actually a few tactical light airsoft/knockoff that can hold up well in a real steel environment.

G&P is probably the most reliable that come with P60 and P90 cloned Surefire bulbs. But theres alot from the airsoft world that are utter trash too.
2 new models from Rico area the "Beta 9 Sabre" models 1 is 200 and the other 300 lumen. Unfortunatley these are not vertical foregip style lights.

BUT in related but NON Rico news fo a M900 Clone light is the newely released SG SFM910 Replica.

Maybe something your shop may be interested in trying out Cat.

A Hong Kong based retail source is here if you wanna do a quickie order:

And finally there may be another M900 replica coming soon but from a US based company. Still a while off though.

Not yet, we supposed to have a couple incoming but not sure. Will check tommorow. These suckas just got released though so I know there was an availability prob. I'll post something if/when some show up.
aight AEX has the latest expensive Rico Alpha 9 in stock ;)

But as mentioned previously in the trhead, it's cheaper the teh surefire and works well on ar's.
