- FM36 Blue Filter for 1.25" Diameter Bezels
This product is exactly what is advertised. Like all of the Surefire products that I have used, and several that I have tested when I was the NCOIC of Soldiers Battle Lab at Ft. Benning Ga. Surefire has an A+ rating in the Special Ops community.
The FM36 with the blue bezel has two main functions that I use it for. One is that it protects the lens of my main light and the blue light is outstanding at detecting blood residue, blood trails, and even for detecting scorpions in my hooch. 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 blue 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 for many 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 for me.

The FM36 is a blue filter for Flashlights and WeaponLights with a 1.25" bezel diameter. Produces a smooth beam of blue light. Hunters use the blue filter to track wounded game at night because blood stands out more distinctly against foliage when viewed under blue light. The filter is also useful for close range, non-tactical applications - such as map reading -- as it reduces the intensity of light output. Applying thumb pressure to the locking tab releases the cover; a spring mechanism keeps the open cover out of the way by holding it flat against the flashlight. A cam-locking lever keeps the entire unit securely attached to the flashlight.
