SWEEEET!!! I just got my USWOI SSC P4 from AW last night. I hadn't planned to do anything last night, but needed something to counter the frustration from work, so I plugged in my soldering iron and went at it.
In stock form, the SL Scorpion LED is only about 35-40 lumens (mine was about 40, my friend's is a bit lower output than mine). I replaced the emitter with a TWOH LuxIII which upped the output to about 60 lumens (estimated based on bounce comparisons with my Huntlight FT-01, which the Scorpion LED often looked a tad brighter). I removed the TWOH LuxIII, put in an aluminum ring spacer cut off from a crimp terminal (not ideal I know, but all I had around) that's about .035" thick with some thermal compound and on went the SSC P4. When I first fired it up, it looked dim and got dimmer as I held it on...I thought I fried the LED or something, but later found out it was my batteries were dead (oops). Threw in fresher batteries and BAM!!! Brightness!!! The Scorpion LED's head is made very well for throw. It generates a really nice tight hotspot, but also good spill light. With the TWOH LuxIII, it easily out-threw my Huntlight Ft-01. Now with a SSC P4, it's just amazing! Really bright hotspot and very bright spill. It makes my FT-01 look dim. And no rings or anything, perfectly focused with a super tight hotspot like with the Lux's. Tint is slightly green, which I like (I prefer green and yellow tints). I'm just amazed at the output. The emitter's being driven at about 680mA, so not too bad.
I think the Scorpion LED is really an under-rated light, both stock and in its modding potential. The reflector is really nicely made, especially for throw. The head comes apart in 2 pieces to easily access the LED module, and if someone could make a new module/canister to allow the use of your own driver, it'd be even nicer. And don't forget, a TRUE MOMENTARY CLICKY!
Anyways, I hadn't planned on posting this up today, but I'm just so excited about my Scorpion LED.
PICS!! The tint isn't really blue, just what I had my camera adjusted to. It's actually a slight green tint which I like.

Ok, that's it for now...imageshack is taking a pooper right now.
