    This is great news. I've been waiting so long for the 3 X 18650 C to M in gray. Still no gray 2 X 18500 C to M though. (I know I can get the C to C and use an adapter but I would have liked the single piece arrangement)

    Thank you so much Leef! I got my hands on a 1X18650 body! Not black, but I think that a black head natural body and black tail could be good looking!

    Have been waiting a long time for my 1X18650 body! No the wait until it arrives!

    Leef do you get the feeling that you might of waiteed too long between runs, and that this run was not quite large enough in diversity?

    There are alot of new folks around here now that have seen the pics and dreamed of their perfect LEGO's but have had no outlet.

    I see plenty of post already asking for different pieces so I'll add my wish here too!

    Nat (not grey) HA M head C tail 2X18650 OR 2X18500 please.

    I think this run is to satisfy some previous requests that may have been very old.
    Isn't he retiring after this run? If your dying and willing to pay 62 plus shipping for a part. buy it RAW and get it anodized the way you want locally at a metal shop. I think thats why he made some raw. How much can having something anodized cost? A local metal shop? 50$? Besides you cant please all the people all of the time.

    I might buy one Raw..if I was rich like you guys.

    I can barely afford the Bi pin drop in I just ordered from Fivemega.

    I already carry a 2x18500 c to c Leef BLACK which I love.

    a good question......you would need a 13V lamp for this set-up.......if it was C tail M head then that would be more logical.......

    WE make an extender for their lights, this turns the Rattlesnake into a 3x 18650 light and uses the D36 LF 13V lamps made just for this power supply.

    I already own a leef, but i missed fms sale!

    could you please elaborate on why you think LEEFs are so much better?

    is it personal preference or is there really some difference in grip, design weight, color, finish, performance, etc?

    It would be so much easier of I had one of each to look at b4 buying more. Oh and I do want more! right now, but not for long, I have a choice of several LEEF or FM in "identical" cell size bodies.

    Does anyone know where I can pickup a new or used CNC lathe? and a metal shop teacher.

    Don't know much about the SF M series (too hard to get and too expensive in AU, so I don't bother) but do know that people use 13V lamps in these combinations.......others care to comment?

    You could also use a Lumens Factory EO-M3.

    Yes I would!

    Before this current run, Leef supplied Lighthound with a much smaller run back in late April, I believe. I managed to snag a 2x18650, C-M body in black HAIII. Then got really lucky! (Another CPFer was parting out his stock SF M4 on the MarketPlace. I snagged every part, except the standard body. Put everything together, and ended up with one SWEET two-tone light! Black barrel + OD tailcap and crenellated head = My own, custom, Leef-bodied M4).

    These are great products LEEF....!


    I do wish you had a forum of you`r own so that we could buy straight of you and maybe convince you into doing customorders aswell....


    I know time is a thing for people who`s got it but then again you have put a smile on so many of our faces it should be worth it.....?




    I edited my post even further because of the simple fact that you have a lot of great ideas and products.....


    Thanks....!

    You can add KL6 to the M-head list:



    And you can add the KT1, KT2, SRTH and T-series turboheads to the C-head list.

    This is not a sale thread in the true sense - it is an information/discussion thread. It does not therefore belong in B/S/T, and I am moving it to Custom Builders & Modders. I'll leave a permanent re-direct.
    Resistance is futile...

    Hi Leef, good to know you're getting back into the game. I hope you'll consider making more "grip" type modules or Leefgrips for the C series. Lighthound ran out of the black ones and I ended up buying his HA natural ones too. Also, I hope you would consider making more C tailcaps...I have a couple of the scalloped ones, but I think a new design should be in order. I'd think a tailcap desinged in the fashion that Lumapower uses for their M1 series would be a good idea...it allows tactical functionality combined with tailstandability without using the scalloping design. Anyway, hope you'll consider those kinds of projects when you fully jump back into this hobby.

    Anyhow, I may (repeat may) be getting back to having time to reinvest myself in the hobby. In fact (as I recently posted), I sent a batch of Leef bodies to the Hound last week.

    That said, I don't expect to be able to keep up with PMs, so I suggest you not use them, or not be too disappointed if you do and get a very late (or no) reply. This is absolutely nothing personal, it's just that my time and attention are very limited.

    Shine on!

    That's horrible! Don't steal from donn.... But if you do, why would you leave behind the custom Leef bodies and the SF turboheads?? Come on, now. That's like breaking into a bank, just to steal the $5 bills.

    What the heck, decided to get another Leef body anyway. It's not like they're always available. A few months from now, I'll be glad I did.

    Went with the 2x18500 C-C Black HAIII body. Going to use it to put together a Leef-bodied 9P. Best part is, that configuration allows me to just swap out the two rechargeable cells (when they get too low) with three primary cells.

    I love my Leef-bodied M4 (2x18650 C-M Black HAIII body) but have to swap out the 12v. SF MN61 with a 9v. LF EO-M3T, when I want to use two 18650 cells in it. With a Leef-bodied 9P, no need to swap out the lamp.

    Well, I for one hope you don't completely switch gears. Went online yesterday to place an order with Light Hound and noticed once again your 18650 tubes were out of stock. I called the Hound and they told me they currently aren't expecting any more.

    I've been eying one for a few weeks plus, but was waiting for something else to come back in stock before placing my order. Guess what...that item is now in stock...and the part I really wanted (Leef 18650 HA) is now out of stock.)

    There definitely seems to still be interest! I for one am in line!

    Anyone else interested?

    Leef bodies are like Autumn in October. They don't come around often. And when they do, better grab onto them; because they'll soon be gone.

    Actually, I've done the same thing with orders that I've placed with Lighthound. But with Leef bodies, you grab those suckers the moment they become available!
