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.
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.
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...
