I was the NCOIC of Soldiers Battle Lab at Ft. Benning Ga. Surefire has an A+ rating in the Special Ops community.
The FM35 with the red bezel has two main functions that I use it for. One is that it protects the lens of my main light and the red light is outstanding at not compromising your vision when going from light to dark areas, Plus it offers a lower detection field while in use.
It is very easy to put on and take off and when it is on it stays on securely. It is easy to operate opening the bezel latch is very easy to operate and when the bezel is latched into place, it is latched in securely keeping the risk of the red bezel from opening and giving your position away with a flash of white light.
It is one of those products that comes along and does exactly what it is supposed to do, and does it well over and over again for many years. If you put your gear through hell and you expect perfect function from not only yourself but your gear also then this bezel like all other Surefire equipment is for you.
I know its the gear that has always worked for me, and it's the gear I've always recommended to my Soldiers.
