    Yours, in the pic above, is an SW02.

    Very good point! I haven't heard of a black SW01. That could be the photo, I suppose, but you are right - it definitely looks BK.

    I think we'll need Size15's expertise and knowledge to resolve this one!

    Hope Al chimes in as well.

    There might be another possibility though . . . It could be the momentary tailcap off of an old Solarforce L600 model. I have the light. (Piece of junk.) But the tailcap is actually excellent, and looks exactly like the one in the pic.

    I remember him saying it was a solarforce tail a while back.

    That's most likely it. I recall Solarforce made a clicky variation of the same tailcap design. It had a longer base than the momentary version though. The clicky was sold seperately, and was also a piece of junk. The excellent momentary version though was never sold as a seperate item and soon vanished when Solarforce stopped selling the L600 model.

    Judging by the pic above, that's the shorter-base momentary tailcap.

    I wanted it say it wasn't an SF, just by looking at the ano. It looks like "textured" type-II (meant to look like type-III).

    Liar I never said such a thing and never owned a Solarforce light

    Actually it is not a SW01 but the switch of the G&P Scorpion R500. An exact copy of the SW01 slim, press for momentary - turn for constant on, just in black.

    Yup, forgot about that. Solarforce and Ultrafire did blatantly rip off the G&P Scorpion model. Apparently even right down to the SureFire based tailcap.

    I guess when the zombies come and you burn thru all your primaries, you can scavenge coin cells and still have light! LOL! I've done this with an A21 and 1 primary, and was able to get light. SF legos...gotta love it!

    To my knowledge there are three generations of the z32

    The one shown above (snap in lens)
    The 'ribbed' version
    The current version

    Thanks EG...I've seen his version...I have two of them..but they're black...I've never seen a factory HA verion...plus, my black ones don't have that "dip" between the vertical grip like his does...this must be from a VERY early version of the M95Xxx I'm guessing??? Or an old pistol light???

    A.O.W. is correct.
    The bezel is from the W-series 6 volt weaponlight, such as the W117 pistol light.
    It looks really nice on a first generation HAIII round body 6P.

    The LX2 head is over to your right. That's a Z44 bezel on that LX2 body.

    Voila, the two-headed 9AN P60 LED conversion:






    Running a warm-white XR-E direct drive + the incandescent low beam on 1xCR123+1xRCR123 (the big bulb is blown on that LA).
    I didn't know how far I could go voltage wise until , 2xRCR123 would likely work as well, just didn't want to risk anything.

    Using a DD drop-in because i suspect the bulb wouldn't be too fond of a regulated driver in series.

    When running 1x18650 only the LED is lit up, the incan bulb glows slightly when the battery is 100% but fades away while current drops.

    I don't have any surefire turboheads but I think it would look cool with a KT3-Turbohead at the front and a KT1/2-TH at the back end.

    Equal rights to the people on both ends of the light: the one who´s getting the "usual" business end into the face as well as the one who´s holding the light are getting blinded

    Definitly an interesting and unusual mod!
