    This one uses a Leef adapter. It's actually without light engine at the moment - I am still undecided on the perfect setup and have a WTB out for another LED tower.

    Thanks for the kind words! Any idea where to source a XP-E tower from? I've been looking for a while...

    I think KUKU still selling the XPG version, you may ask him for a replacement of XPE.

    When I used to have an A2L I did it with the VME, and the different levels worked, they were pretty close to each other in brightness (same results with my LX2.) Using an AZ2 tailcap on a 9P, you can put an M91 in it and it has the same brightness as an M61 on low (a different beam pattern, though.)

    is there any difference whatsoever between the C2 and M2 bodies except for the printed text?

    can yall answer what may be my last question: so besides supposed shock absorption, is the M2 bezel much different from the Z44 bezels? iirc i've heard yall mention there's a lot more room in the M2 combat bezels and no cutoff on the beam like a z44 might have?

    and is there a difference insofar as function between the Malkoff and Oveready M2 adapters for P60 drop-in modules?

    The M2/32 bezel is both longer and wider than the 44. The shock absorber protects incan bulbs from the recoil introduced by weapon mounted use. Lamps are 'recessed' from the glass (providing the compression space), increasing cutoff vs the 44. Its the Cryos/32 that reduces cutoff (no recoil protection).

    Malkoff adapters push against the factory shock absorber, pre compressing it. This is enough for the springs on most drop ins. Dropins with powerful springs (like the Triple) push against batteries to much force for this setup, so the OR adapter replaces the factory shock absorber (harder to install/remove), keeping the drop in properly seated in the socket.

    No one's posted any legos in awhile so I thought I'd post one that I made last night for my daughter to carry while we searched for our missing cat... Surprised no one's posted it... Plain old E2D with Surefire E2C (from LU60A) and KX3 head... Horrible balance but the ano matches pretty nicely and it works...

    thanks for the in-depth response, sorry i'm so late on this. so is there no real layperson benefit to an M2 bezel unless you like the looks?

    I find the M2 head on a 2 cell light ads nice weight. It's more comfortable to hold and it looks nicer.

    It does feel like it's stronger than the z44

    Not much. I suppose it would be a little bit more resistant to rolling due to the slightly longer flat surfaces but that's about it (aside from the appearance).

    From the stand point of P60 drop ins, it's major plus is the extra heat sinking mass. Even without direct contact, heat goes drop > body > bezel.

    Real functional advantage though requires something custom with a larger reflector.

    Picked up a beautiful KL3-BK and Z49 on the marketplace (thanks eg1977!). They are just the ticket to give a Z2 a little attitude

    The AZ2 was the first light I used with my VME head. Like you said, the brightness levels aren't drastically different with an M61 but they are noticeably different. I suspect that it does make a fair difference to battery life though I haven't tested this.

    The neck of the VME is actually smaller than the AZ2 body where they meet so it's not as nice a fit as it is on other lights. It doesn't look bad but you can tell there's a little mismatch.
