“NIGHT VISION EXTRAS”
Here I have included two extras I use now recently, it
helps a ton! I have used them for about 5 months,
(2009) and they help my night vision set up.
INFRA RED FRONT SUREFIRE COVER.
This INFRA RED SPECIAL
FILTER THAT LOOKS LIKE A NORMAL GLASS, is very nice
and it looks like a normal torch from the front BUT it
isn’t at all, it is infra red and when on you cant see
any sort of light at all, it is only visible through
night vision binoculars etc. I use both the normal IR
filter and then also this, I always have both with me
in case one breaks down, then I have a spare. I bought
this from a company called TACTICAL 4 YOU in Japan; it
cost $15-00. Locally it would have cost R2000,00 ( yes
Then next I also added a
pressure switch, this turns on the back of the
Sure-fire torch and you simply touch the switch to
turn the torch on, the original one on the Sure-fire
you must turn to put the torch on, so this helps a lot
and its responsive. I like it far more than a turn on
This is just to show the
switch that fits on the Sure-fire rear with the
pressure switch shown, when properly assembled I fix
it to the right side for easy finger pressure.
I also bought this at the
same place, it costs $11-00 from Japan, if I bought it
locally it would cost me about R1600-00, a huge saving
indeed -- it pays to buy overseas for most things, you
save thousands of Rands.
Below are a few pictures
of the units and a final showing the NV binoculars
with the pressure switch set up ready for action.
Here we have my 9P
Sure-fire with a pressure switch ready to be fitted to
the rear, having a push button switch is FAR easier
than a turn on torch. The moment you release pressure
it switches off, thus saving a lot of battery power.
This one fits all my Sure-fire models (9P and G2)
Here is the NV with
pressure switch fitted correctly.
