So Doc was cleaning out some old gear and offered it to The Armory. One thing that caught my eye was an old style Surefire weapon light. Which is weird since I don’t usually like sub-par flashlights.
But with the growing interest in “retro rifles”, maybe we should build one while we can. You see, back when I was young all AR-15’s were formatted with triangle hand guards and A1 stocks.
Fast forward about 20 years and all the cool-guy AR-15’s had Surefire M500 series weapon lights on board with 16” barrels. What was then State-of-the-Art has now become retro and borderline quaint.
I see fixed carry handle AR’s being surplussed by PD’s every week. Now we have an excuse to pick one up.
