    I don't normally post in here but I am looking for a flashlight that only uses high intensity red LED's. It can't be a white light with lens cover.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of something like this?

    I used to have a Surefire L1 that came with a red LED.

    If you can't find a stock red light, you might be able to send it to someone who can swap the emitter in an existing light for a red one, or buy a red drop-in.

    Solarforce drop-in.
    Great price; $2 shipping.....if you're not in a hurry.
    Takes 2-3 wks.

    surefire A2, or A2L?

    nailbender makes custom p60 dropins over at CPF, he offers red LEDs, and his prices are very decent

    Yes it does, I have that one only in silver...nice light and the red LED is great for preserving your night vision.

    Dereelight is offering a red XR-E P60 drop-in as well. The CLH1 is the equivalent of the Surefire 6p. If you contact Jay at Flashlight Connection he might be able to set up a DBS-T with one if you need a ton of throw.

    How much throw do you need? Like trees at the end of the yard or through the window of 4 houses down?

    Peak has several models with (semi-custom) LED choices, including red Cree XP-E.

    I know people love to :censored: on Gerber, but their axle 2x3 is a pretty neat flashlight. You have a red and white LED with flood focus side by side, swivel head and works great for clip to a hat.
