The product is very light and its weight facilitates the operation of it. Also, the size is convenient and is easy to carry. Beyond that, the SureFire M951 is made from sturdy material and its luminosity is of a good level. The operation is simple enough and the switches are well located. Also, an aspect that we liked a lot is that the item is easy to mount and doesn’t require too much effort to get it ready to work.
We think that the light is definitely good value and even though that someone can consider the price a little steep, we consider that the money invested when buying the product is well spent.
Some people don’t like lights that have too many modes, but we think that in this case, the XM07 tail cap switch is a feature that when we made our research to write our SureFire M951 KIT02, Millennium Universal WeaponLight System review, let us realize why the products stand out from its competition. The fact that the switches work independently can be annoying for some users, but we really think that the usability of them justify their existence.
Also, another aspect that impressed us positively, was the ability of the light to disable itself, preventing the item to be activated by accident.
We really advise that if the buyer wants to get a more powerful light beam, purchase a stronger bulb like the P60 that will make the beam 420 lumens and combined with the Turbohead will release a longer and tighter light beam.
