Ok I just got my used surefire 618FA today, I got it off ebay but nothing was mentioned of what I think might be a repair of some sort. I dont know if all are like this or they repaired it with some super glue or somthing, everything seems to work fine on it. Here are some pictures of what I think might had been repaired..... The pictures make it look worse then it really is but just so you get an idea.

Im pretty sure thats just the original glue job. Mine doesnt look quite that sloppy (got it used from a friend) but its got a little gloss in the cracks just like yours. As long as it works I wouldnt worry about it.

Did yours come with a z10 switch blocker? I got one with mine and didnt know if he just threw that in with the package or if it just comes with it??

Yea I got it for $170 and it seems to be in great condition besides that glue job.. :D

dasanii19,

My Surefire forend came with the switch blocker. I believe it is included in with all forends from the factory.

I did not install my switch blocker until I had been to the range five or six times with the forend installed and I had played around with different ways to hold the forend and manipulate the slide.

Once I figured out how I usually grasped the forend and where I could place my thumb (I am lefty) on the pad switch, I was able to place the switch blocker in a position where I would not turn the light on accidently but it was easy to reach the pad with my thumb when needed.

Good luck.
