Need a good GREEN WML and good IR flood light Login/Join

Went hunting last weekend for opening day, Friday night we decided to do some hog stalking. I bought PVS14s last year and could not wait to try them out, I had used them a great deal in the Army but never for hunting. The 14s worked great but I was rather disappointed in the Streamlight IR torch I bought to use with them.

The beam was too tight and was useless in foilage, I should have figured that last part but I need to find a better IR "spot" light, something that will cover at least 25M at 75M.

Also the cheapy WML I had mounted and had worked well at 30-40m sucked at 75-100, I put my upgraded 6P on the rifle and it worked much better as it threw good light easily out to 75m but again the beam pattern was to tight.

So the search begins...I would prefer green as from what I have read the hogs...and other game notice it much less than white or even red light.

I use the surefire convertible head. I've been really happy with it at those ranges. Its too bright at close distance but I'd rather not be shooting at hogs anywhere that is a problem.
I use a dbal for the laser but that's probably not the best in this case.

I have a TNVC Torch Pro MKII and it is the best IR illuminator I have ever seen. Beam width is adjustable. Not sure if it hits your criteria exactly for beam width, I have never measured it like that.

Malkoff Device Throws a wide beam and built like a tank.

The dropins on that page will fit your 6P. The M61 should fit your needs. Add a green filter and you're all set.

Para are we talking to get green light for hog hunting or IR light in the above suggestion? If IR does the surefire caution about this apply here?
NOTE: Infrared filters are unsuitable for LED white light flashlights, which produce negligible infrared radiation.
I've been wondering how to get both good white light and IR out of some of my older surefires.
