    That's a cool adapter I hadn't heard of before. I own a lot of Malkoff products, and consider them a great value in the hard use category.

    Another option to upgrade the M951 series is Oveready's Custom LU60 P60 Adapter. I bought one when they were first introduced. They provide a much better fit to the Malkoff M61 for heat transfer.

    I'm surprised nobody makes (or readily markets in Malkoff's case) a C to E adapter. Maybe the market is soft on something like this nowadays but I bet it would have been a popular option just a few years ago.

    On a related note I see the current P60 LED drop-in has been bumped up to 425 lumens. That's probably the most cost effective thing for these old lights.

    An outfit called Lumens Factory has an 800 lumen option. Don't know if they are fully potted, etc for durability.

    I agree that a C to E would be great. E to C and C to M adapters have been available for years.

    I read at the Candle Power Forum that Gene increased the current draw of the M61, which explains the increased output. This makes a lot of sense, since his small E-series heads have been outperforming his (standard voltage range) modules by quite a bit.

    I guess the M61 at 350 lumens was good enough compared to the M600 from just a few years ago that nobody saw a need for a C to E option. But now with 600+ lumen heads there might be some interest? Plus this route should save a tiny bit of weight by ditching the LU60 collar.

    I've been exchanging emails with Gene as well as Will from Arisaka Defense about these adapters.

    Will sent me this email this evening:

    I spoke at length with Gene yesterday. He's going to do some extra adapters for Arisaka so we can make them available to anyone looking to use Scout heads. There may be some other uses/variations as well. I guess your interest in this will end up helping some other people!

    Slippers is good people. If there’s an option from Arisaka for an integrated head/adapter I will buy the shit out of it.

    A one piece screw-on head that mates directly to the MH90 would be wonderful.

    I guess the down side would be no way to upgrade the light later on down the road with a different Scout head.
