ExtremeBeam's New M600 Fusion Gives Users Six Hours of Intense Far-Reaching Light

Today's tactical flashlights often ask users to sacrifice light-casting distance for long-lasting battery life or vice versa, but ExtremeBeam's new M600 Fusion answers the question of, "Why can't you have your cake and eat it too?"

Utilizing a 600 lumen high-output LED and a modified version of the company's SuperLumen reflector cone, the M600 Fusion is capable of projecting a wide-set beam to distances of 330 meters. The precision-engineered reflecting cone is machined from solid bar stock aluminum, which not only allows for optimum light-casting ability, but also heat dispersion that is unmatched by pressed-tin or molded-plastic reflecting cones often found in other flashlights.

Equally as impressive as the M600 Fusion's light casting-ability, is its runtime. The M600 Fusion has a runtime of 6 hours when used in its high setting, 12 hours in medium, 24 hours in low and 10 hours in strobe.

Like most full-size flashlights from ExtremeBeam, the M600 Fusion features a housingmachined from solid bar stock aluminum, double O-ring seals for waterproof protection to 30 feet, and ExtremeBeam's Anti-Recoil system making it weapons mountable up to .50 BMG. This proprietary system works by replacing conventional springs found in the tail cap with a piston that absorbs shock and impact, where as typical springs transfer recoil energy to the batteries – essentially turning them into a battering ram that can cause damage to the fragile circuitry.

The M600 Fusion weighs just 9 ounces with batteries and measures 6.38 inches in length. It comes with a limited lifetime warranty that even covers destruction and has an MSRP of $129.95.

BallistiClean 00 Buck Review

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
