    Oh well you'll just have to wait and see I guess. Scott is a top guy to deal with when you can actually get hold of him.

    That's why I am so anxious to get him to work on my L1. BTW....I see you have an ML-1 I WANT ONE TOO!!!!

    I'm thinking I want the LuxV replaced on my L2 also. Either with a good SSC or Rebel.

    Just sent my L1 and L2 out to Scott today. I already miss my babies. Getting an ML-1 Smoothie, and an ML-2 Power Monster(About 200 lumens of Pure White Sweet Delight). I can't wait.....

    Milky L1 gen3 Smoothie

    Seoul SSCP4 USWOH emitter, hand-tested for optimal L1 compatibility
    Smooth 20mm reflector
    Ultra-clear flat lens (if needed)
    Tailcap resistance recalibrated as appropriate

    Milky L2

    Seoul SSCP4 USWOH emitter, hand-tested for optimal L2 compatibility
    Circuit capsule rebuilt using SOB1000 regulator
    Tailcap resistance recalibrated for good high/low beam ratio

    I'm glad you got up with Scott! Did you get my PM's. Talk to me about the L2 mod!

    Uh... that POWER MONSTER mention is NOT an officially sanctioned Milky name!

    Seriously, was a pleasure speaking with Bondr006 at length this morning... great guy... and I'm looking forward to working on his lights.

    Whippoorwill, there's a thread posted by Skalomax a while back where he describes a very similar light I'd built for him... then in true Skalomax fashion, he proceeds to sell it! (For the unaware: Skalo has a bit of a reputation for working his way through large quantities of lights, er, very rapidly.)

    Skalo's thread is over here.

    Thanks Scott. It was certainly a pleasure to talk to you also. I am looking forward to using the work you are going to do on my lights...

    BTW....I think Power Monster is a good name... 200 lumens from an L2 Does it get any better than that???

    Scott, I would love to send you money too! Just tell me where to send my light! I sent you a PM July 31st (followed up 8/15) and a follow up e-mail 9/4. If you're not taking new customers, just tell me and I'll find something else to drool over.

    Aggiegrads, yes, I certainly am accepting new customers! You've waited far too long for a reply from me, and I'd like to publicly apologize for that. PM sent a few moments ago, PM or call me, whichever is easier. Thanks for hanging in there... wow!

    Hiya Milky.

    Confused about something; Floodmaster possible with New, short version of L1??

    Hey Milky, are there any more old style L1's around? Im considering a whole light, but i have a stock old L1 here i could have you mod too, but it's kinda beat up and i'd like something prettier.
    List of flashlights that used to be here has been removed (by me) to save our search function. NOW USE IT.

    Scottaw, YES! Just last night I confirmed a nifty little coup, got 10x L1 old-style (four-flats) hosts on their way to me... should arrive sometime next week. As usual, first come, first served! Your timing is great, and yes, I definitely have an L1 host we can use for your build, assuming you place your order sometime in the near future.

    Claren, yes, the Floodmaster should be possible with the new, short version of L1, though probably not with the stock emitter... one way to handle would be to replace the emitter and optic with a Seoul SSCP4 emitter plus Floodmaster reflector... the full-sized 20mm reflector ought to fit in that head... the other way might be to replace the head entirely with a Floodmaster head built from an L1gen2 host, that would allow you to keep the stock head to swap back and forth as you wish. Pricing would depend on how many pieces I might need to find to get your mod done, let me know if you have interest in this and we can take things from there.

    Scott, how much of a lumen upgrade do you think is possible by simply replacing the emitter in the new short L1 with an SSC P4. Would a P4 work with that optic, or would you recommend a reflector?

    Thanks,

    Reflector will give you a smoother beam I think

    Josh, a reflector would most definitely offer a smoother beam, plus allow for some other options in terms of the actual beam geometry... one example might be an intense hotspot combined with medium-radius but very intense, even sidespill... another might be a very soft hotspot coupled with super smooth area flood.

    As far as brightness, right now the Seoul SSCP4 parts won't be all that much brighter... they'll probably be a little brighter though. When Seoul releases the successor to the SSCP4, which I've heard might happen anytime toward the end of this year, or perhaps January or February of next year, we'll be in a great position to deliver the above advantages of a reflectored light AND bump up the brightness quite a bit more, too.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Scott, for the reply. I think I'll buy a new L1 and wait for the new offerings from Seol. A question for you in the meantime: I have a original bodied ML1 with a P4, and the ML1X I bought from Skalomax on its way to me now. Can I safely swap the heads back and forth between the lights?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Hi Scott,
    If you still have any ML1s not spoken for I'd be thrilled to pay you for one.
    Let me know!
    PM sent

    Thought this photo might be of some interest in understanding the relative size of various L1 variants and some close cousins...
