    Meguiar's PlastX http://www.meguiarsdirect.com/produc...?T1=MEG+G12310 may be an option. I have not used it on a flashlight though-yet.

    I've used Flitz to polish acrylic (LED optics) - works well.

    SureFire's type III anodisation has changed over time. Sometimes dark and brown, other times lighter as shown. Depends on the specifics of the alloy, processing etc. I'm not sure there's much to be read into different shades.
    The clip's lanyard attachment point was added shortly after the E-Series was introduced so if your one doesn't have it, it is an early example...

    Latest version M2 head, Black HAIII -


    Ok so its not all that rare, but pictures of this latest LU60A seem to be few and far between. Figured I'd whip up a few quick shots with the ol G9.

    I guess since this is a Surefire thread, the following is sort of the red headed stepchild of the bunch:

    I'm laughing so hard I can barely breath and have started coughing!

    And it's just a pic of a Surefire head on a Streamlight body. It's the funniest thing I've seen on CPF in months! ..... And I don't know why!

    I like that new LU60. The E2C adapter part of it looks like the Vital Gear E2C.

    Did you order it direct from SF?

    I've got a previous generation LU60A, and it includes the same E2C. It is very similar to the Vital Gear piece - the design is almost identical, but the flares on the VG are a little taller/wider.

    This just came in the mail today!!

    Apparantly Surefire DID make a E-series adaptable X200 when they first came out. NOTICE: LOW SN# 00217
    The desciption said 60 Lumens of blinding LED light, but I knew the E2D Bezel was Incan. I purchased it in hopes that I would be getting something "Strange & Unusual" ond Man Did I Ever!!

    Now to offer the one I modded for sale!

    I've never seen that particular example before. If it was modified by SureFire; then it's a rare thing indeed to get one of their proto-types.

    I have a lower serial number X200.

    I have to wonder whether it was modified after being purchased? Do did get it directly from SureFire?

    Hi Al,

    I was hoping you would stop by with some input.

    I bought it on eBay and it appears to be a true Surefire Product.
    The machining is excellent and looks to be a screw-in insert.

    Maybe it is a Prototype..

    I'm just glad it turned out to be what it appeared to be!

    It is a SureFire product - then why is this the only example, and the collar isn't chemfilmed or anodised which makes me suspicious.
    It could be a genuine SureFire constructed proto-type, but I doubt it.
    More likely, IMHO, it was modified afterwards.
    Perhaps more photos from different angles, with the adapter removed if possible please?

    So far I haven't been able to get it apart.

    When I get some time to take the heatgun to it, I will try again and post pics.

    If it was done by someone other than surefire, they did an amazing job!

    Maybe ask PK next time you see him if you remember..

    I spoke with the previous owner today.
    He stated that he bought it used from someone. He had no idea that it was different from other X200's
    He stated that this was the X200 model and not the X200A or X200B. I've had several X200A pass through my hands and I don't remember one with X200A laser engraved on it. X200 is all I ever saw on them.
    He also said he had sent lead downrange with the bulb and said it was still the original bulb that it came with. No problems at all. I personally would rather use and LED because there is no shock isolation on the E-series, but interesting info non the less.

    Even though there is only about 3/8" difference between my modded X200 and the one I just purchased, that 3/8" LESS make the new one look much cooler when the bezel is screwed on. Even using an E2DL head, it doesn't look too long.

    Still wish I knew more about this particular light...

    Yeah, lack of shock isolation was one thing that crossed my mind when I saw that setup. Interesting though.
