    Default SureFire help: Z32 bezel on 6Z

    If any of you followed the previous thread on "Defect or Durability Problem"--you'll know that I purchased a Z32 Shock Isolated Bezel for my SureFire 6Z last week after breaking one P60 lamp in a drop.

    Well, the Z32 arrived, and I've now replaced the standard bezel on [b]two different 6Z's I own, and neither of them function properly after the swap-out.

    Do I need a different tail-cap switch assembly? The tail-cap is what no longer "feels" the same after putting on a Z32?. The Z32 "instructions" indicate only the need for replacing the std. bezel with the Z32-unit.

    Any/all help, suggestions, input appreciated.

    Hmmm. Not heard that one before.

    Please can you give some details about what isn't working or feeling right. Is the TailCap very difficult to press?

    My hunch is without a LockOut TailCap (I assume you didn't upgrade your 6Z with a Z41 LOTC?) the pressure of the Shock Absorbing System is messing with your TailCap by forcing the lamp contacts and therefore the batteries too far down the body...

    However, I have tried using the M2 Bezel on the G2 (it works fine) and with a P90 & Z20 and the original TailCap in the 12PM. (It also works fine).

    So unless there is something I am missing here and others can help you out, I can only suggest you call SureFire and let us know what you find out.

    [sorry]

    Kogatana-

    Thanks for the valuable insight.

    I tried again this morning replacing the 6Z's standard bezelwith a Z32 bezel. Same problem... Arrgghh...

    Orig. bezel works fine, Z32 no go. You can twist the end cap to constant-on position (full clockwise), and still no light. Tried intermittent positions of the end cap until its almost fallen off--still no light. Looks like I'll have to call SureFire.

    I'm hoping you're right, Al. I mean, a flashlight is not a space shuttle, right? So, it must be something do to with the Z32 combined with a standard, non-upgraded 6Z tailcap, that messes with the circuit continuity.

    Will keep you guys advised of what SureFire says...

    FYI, I just tried putting the Z32 bezel on an older 3P model. Same problem.
