    I did extensive research on this, and it's not good...it will make your L1 head brighter, but will eventually burn it up...sooner rather than later...the only e-Series head safe one to use with 1 or 2 cell's is the old KL1 and the KL4.

    I was afraid it wasn't the best idea. Thanks for the info!

    However, if you prefer the 2 cell form factor, you can always get a Z20 battery spacer, and still safely use it your L1 head on a 2 cell body.

    There's already a well-established thread about Surefire Lego, so I'm merging this one into it.

    How it's carried (6Z w/ A19 and A20):



    Or 3 Cells (6Z + A19) for longer runtime:




    Or 2 cells, (Stock 6Z) if that's all you have...



    The good thing about the 6Z is it can be mounted to an M78 or an M79 mount, due to the cut down body...talk about versatility!

    You can run the L1 head on a two cell body if you use a 17670 cell. Of course, the body has to accept a 17mm battery or you have to convince it to do so. This will overdrive the LED a little, depending upon the Vf of the particular LED it will likely be around 1.2A give or take. This is not a terrible thing to do to a cool white Cree or a Lux III and it will not burn up.

    So I'm wanting to mate an M2 head to a Kroma/U2 body. What is the best option to do this and maintain some type of color match? Aren't all LU60 adapters HA and not available in black? And isn't the LU60A for mating an E-series body to a C-series head?

    Thanks for any advice. Obviously Kroma/U2 bodies only come in black but M2 heads come in either black or natural. I'm thinking no matter which route I go there'll be some mismatch (ie. black head, black body, natural adapter)

    The LU60A's (?) that come with the scout light's are black HA, and will work.

    The LU60A is threaded for E-series bodies, not K2/U2 bodies.

    The LU60 adapter is threaded for the K2/U2 and the like.

    Whoops, gswitter beat me to it. So I take it that the regular LU60 isn't available in HA-BK then right?

    Nope, but you could have it re-anodized.


    I did my 9P body a few weeks ago and it came out pretty good.


    If you want the LU60 to fit anything other than the Surefire or Incan lamps it'll need to be bored out. I took a stepper bit to mine and now it fits the aftermarket LED dropins. They won't work with 18650 batteries though.. unless you bore out the other side.
    If it ain't bright, It ain't right!

    I dunno if any one has tried this lego. I picked up a display 8NX for $50. After researching I found out there is very little potential for it. So I played with the LA and figured it could work with my G2Z. I forced the head onto the G2Z body. using the big spring from an old P60 bulb, and a spacer I got the G2Z-8NX hybrid to work with a 17500.

    I need to work on my spacer so that I can squeeze two primaries in. right now the spacer is too long.

    ^^ thanks Solscud007

    Neat and potent looking little thing it is. A flashlight with a similar chunky but short form factor would be interesting - SW01 slim, 1x123, short milky modded head...

    +1 I'm really liking the black M2 head lately. It's got a certain pizazz to it.

    Yea, its funny. I originally found the M2 bezel because my large tailcapped FM 1C looked odd with a normal size bezel.
    But now that I have them, I can't stop putting them on other lights!

    Here's the original vision:

    The first up is a SF 6P body, finned head (Nailbender sells these), stainless bezel ring, generic one cell extender (detonator) and Solarforce L2-S4 clicky. I know two combat grips is kind of redundant but I thought it looked interesting. The head and one cell extender match the SF color very well. The Solarforce is more satin.





    Next is a Fivemega/ Nite SF clone 3P body, SF turbohead, generic one cell extender (detonator) and SF Z41 switch.

    Is that extender from the Aurora XO-6?
