This is a nice conversion and extremely easy to install, requiring a mere screw in and go mentality. However, be on the lookout for erroneous manufacture of this product. By this I mean that when you run filamented light bulbs, the polarity of the batteries does not matter. Therefore the batteries can be place either negative up or positive up and the light will work. However, LEDs are polarity sensitive. My fore-grip light came with two small entry illumination LEDs. That means that my polarity must be correct with negative up polarity with my 3 CR123 batteries. The good folks at Surefire made a mistake in manufacture as the polarity of my KX9 was reverse of my entry LEDs. I have an electronic background so I took the unit apart and soldered the wires to the entry LEDs reversing their polarity so they would work with the KX9. Surefire would have warranted this problem but I did not want to send it in and wait. Most people should check this immediately and send the entire unit into Surefire if you find that you must reverse the batteries to get the KX9 working as you will lose your entry lights.On the positive side, I was running the brightest xenon bulb that was available and the KX9 is so many times brighter that I decided to put it on my .308 as it will give you long range lighting. I wish they made an infra-red lens cover for this but not yet as this light would really light up all generations of night vision. All in all, nice bright light once I got past the OOPS from Surefire.
