Thread: Surefire Lego?

    Default Re: Surefire Lego?

    does anyone know why the SW01 is so much rarer than the SW02?
    Who carries one or both of those tailcaps???
    What's the serial number(for the M2 bezel in HA-BK it's 13586-11, and I think the SW tailcaps have a number like that, but I don't know what it is…)

    Thanks very much!

    I just switched out the Leef body for a new C3 Centurion body that I snagged. I prefer the C3 because of the pocket clip.

    @ flash bang, I don't know how rare SW01s & SW02s are, but they aren't impossible to find. CPFer brightspot may have some left - try sending him a PM.

    @ NickDrak, I'm very glad indeed you decided to switch those bodies, lol!

    Here's one of my SF FrankenLegos.

    Quick lego question guys: Is the older Surefire L1 tailcap the same one as the new Cree Tailcap? i.e. if i put an older L1 tailcap on a new Cree L1 and vice versa it'll work the same? Thanks

    Like DM51 said, it's the same switch and just for anyone that cares, it is the same switch as the A2 & L2.

    I have a couple of lego surefires which I use on duty:

    an old yellow G2 with Z58 tailcap and lumens factory HO-4 bulb.

    a new style M2 with SW02 tailcap and red filter.

    Can anyone tell me if an LU10 head unit would fit on the M2 to make it a 3 cell? thanks in advance.

    I need a single RCR123 cell SF C series compatible tube. Can anyone give me a list of options? Other than a 3P body that is, a bit pricy to buy the light just for the tube.

    I don't think that particular tube is out there. A good alternative would be a single cell E series body (Aleph, Vital Gear) with an E to C adaptor.

    Oh man, I really want to avoid making it any longer that I have to. How is it that amongst the members of CPF and their skilled machining talents that this product isn't being offered anywhere. Crap

    I'm guessing it's because if people want it to be short, they also want it to be thin…
    Maybe a Leef 1x18500 would work? with a spacer, of course

    Here is my Surefire L5. The forward, original portion of the body is bored for a 18650 battery, it has a Seoul P4 USWOH emitter in it (straight swap out with the Lux V), a Sandwich Shoppe SOB 1000ma driver, and I added an extender that I cut down and re-threaded from a Leef 1x18650 flashlight body. Depending on the configuration I decide to have it in, it will run on 2x 123's, 4x 123's, 1x 18650, or 2x 18650, which is what is in the light now. I also have two Inox lanyard rings (from Lighthound) sandwiched between the extender and body.

    Howdy. I have the same setup, a 6p head on a g2 body, and I was thinking of adding a Malkoff dropin to it.

    Would the heat-management be markedly better, or would the 20-minutes-and-it-melts rule still apply? The head is metal, but part of the plastic body still touches the LA.

    Cheers.

    You shouldn't be able to damage the nitrolon, and if you somehow do, the emitter and electronics will be beyond toast. The metal will help sink the heat more than the nitrolon head.

    ditto what keygrip said, also, with the pyrex lens you won't have to worry about it bubbling or anything.

    Cool. So, I'll able to occasionally run the light beyond 20 minutes.

    This is the reason I like Surefire lights. Out of all of the parts I've bought in the last year I have only one lego light that doesn't change. Sorry no pics but,

    KT1 HA turbohead w/ scallops from KT4 and seoul P4 tower mod @917ma
    M2 body
    M series LOTC w/ 30ohm 2stage guts

    The rest of the lights get swapped around a lot. If you get the chance to put a M3 bezel on a M6 it should put a smile on your face. I haven't tried running a bulb in it, but the MN15 9v M3T bulb works in the turbohead. Maybe the MN10 would work in the M3 head.

    At least the interchanability of parts gives us an excuse for buying more. That's what I keep telling myself anyway.

    The M2, C2, and L5 have the same bodies. Only the heads are different.

    So, it should fit.
