    I bought these at a german shop, Sierra 313. Might help if you search for "National Molding Zipper Pull" if you didn´t already.

    Slight update on my LegoLight. I scrapped the Surefire Lanyard ring and attached a Novatac EDC clip. The clip fits perfect! As if made for a 6PD head on a FM 18500 body.

    Default Fun with Legos!

    Here are some of my latest lego goodies... I am leaning heavily toward 1-cell lights these days.

    A "TW4" - KL4 head on E1e body (the stock KL4 head kicks up a nice flood w/ a RCR123 rechargeable!)


    P7 Goodness - Malkoff P7 head (turns the little 3P body into a tiny TIGER!)


    Malkoff P7 in 6P head on FM 3P body w/Z59 Tailcap, powered by AW IMR16340 (pocketable TIGER!)


    M30 lamp in 6P head with E2C adaptor on FM 1*16340 body






    E1B w/Z68 tailcap (not much of a lego, but I like the change for candle mode)


    TLS Head on E1e body (this head really rocks with a rechargeable RCR123!)

    I'm pretty sure your E1B has a Z68 on the end of it, and not a Z49. If memory serves, a Z49 is a C series clickie with a rubber guard surrounding the button, and a Z68 is the non-crenelated E2D tailcap included with the M600 Scout series.

    Either way, I'm a fan of that configuration, since that's been my primary EDC since the light came out on the market.

    Very nice photography, by the way.

    AzGB.... thank you so much! You are absolutely right.... my mistake, it's a Z68 tailcap for sure! I appreciate the correction. Your E1B looks well loved! They're nice lights for sure. And glad you like the pics. (My business is portrait and commercial photography.)

    Here I go again. I been working on a lego Hope you guys like it.

    It is a 3in Surefire 3P parts. It can house any P60 from as high as 700 lumens to 235 lumens with a M30. Currently; I just traded my P7 P60 but it still has plenty of usefullness with the Malkoff stuffed in it.

    Okay folks now I know some of you have some sub 3in P60 Surefire Lego's out there. Please post some pictures...




    Surefire 6P with Malkoff M60 simple, bright, efficient.

    Just got the parts in for this this afternoon. Just in time too, since I'm going to a trade show this week that Surefire will be attending Gotta see what they think of this, and try out an F04 and F05 on it.

    The E1e w/ Defender bezel and clickie is amazing. It screams quality and with IMR incan drop-ins there is more potential than meets the eye.

    Very nice..

    Thank you for the compliments. I do wish I started with an E1B body though. I really prefer bezel-down clips, since most of the weight sits in the bezel end.

    My E1E was too heavy with the stainless steel bezel.. so I picked up an $8 aluminium one and ground the "teeth" off it.

    The bezel is still thick.. and long enough to protect the window.







    The TNC clicky is much higher quality than the Surefire one.... imo.

    doesnt quite work but its still cool



    This one works, I swaped the tail cap out for a m4 tail and plan to work on it some more later.

    Also from the "This doesn't quite work" department:

    On the right next to an E1L for size comparison: Mini "Zero-P" with KL3 - battery not yet made to fit it. Unless a few CR2032's will work.

    I like how this one came together...



    Ganp A19 head (reminiscent of 1st gen KL1), XR-E Q4 engine from a McGizmo "dumb" Mule head, round L1 body, Oregon Shooter tail shroud.

    I prefer the length of the L1 Cree body with this head, but I couldn't pass up the ano match with this round body.

    Does the 2 stage tail still work on that?

    Guess I need to read up on L1 mods. I'm considering a circuit board switch for Li-ion use, but don't want to lose the tail function. edit: missed that that was the older and longer body, and realize the circuitry's probably different
    I kind of like the way that head looks-similar to when I put my Gen 1 KL1 on the L1 to see what it looked like.

    The functionality of the L1 is unchanged. This A19 head houses an LED module sans converter that McGizmo made for a run of L1 Mule heads.

    I too always liked the original KL1 (even have a couple waiting to be modded), and when I saw this KL1-style A19 for sale, I had to jump on it. This light previously used a standard, Aleph 19 head with the same module. Everything swapped right over, and the ano match was a bonus.

    Dhart,

    As always, those are some beautiful pics.

    Just out of curiosity, how does TLS head look with e1B body? Seen plenty of e1e and TLS but curious with slightly larger e1B or even e1L.

    No pics with my E1B as yet... but here's how it looks on a Fivemega E- 16340 body:



    Right now my TLS head is on a Fivemega 18500 E-body, but no pics yet.

    Thank you Dhart!

    I like e1e and TLS but that 16340 body seems a bit more proportional with the TLS head.

    Surefire U2 + Surefire FM64 + one cell extender = U2F1




    I added a Lion Cub pocket clip. Works great!

    G2 + AN-14 + 2xAW17670 + R2

    I love this set up. It is by far my favorite light. Yes I have many more expensive but this will run for hours, still fit in pocket, and really throw some light. This is a great set up for my eo-9 as well.

    I like that setup but where did you get the AN-14? I just looked on the Surefire site and didn't find it (edit: found it listed as AN14 no hyphen). I've been running a similar arrangement in my modded G3 but wouldn't mind the extra juice the larger cells would provide.
