    You can't tell him to go to Lighthound.com?

    Perhaps you can tell him to click on the following link...

    Lighthound is out of stock for 2x18650 C-C Black finish LeedBodys.

    I've seen the Fivemega bodies, but I'm looking for a Leef one.

    Exclamation Good News and Bad news ~

    For those who haven't noticed, yet...

    Leef bodies are in stock at Lighthound.com

    Bit surprised that a few are still in stock at this point.

    Get 'em before they're gone again!

    BTW, no C-C 1x18650 Leef bodies.

    I received my 2x18500 natural Leef body today from lighthound. Great! I´d love to get a 1x18500 oder 1x18650 in grey/natural, unfortunatelly these are long gone.

    MONO you tease!

    AHh they are the same bodies that are left over! "still in stock"

    No 2x18650 in black, which is why I do what I do now. Also the 2x18500 which I have in black is only available in natural. Yes there many LEEFs at LH still, but not the most popular models and colors. Some nice 3 cell models though.

    I love my Black leef 2x18500

    LEEF inspired me...my first custom body!

    thank you LEEF!

    Love my Black Leef 2x18500 too.

    Yeah, the bodies have been in stock for awhile now. Figured I'd help out those who haven't been checking the hound on a daily or hourly basis.

    The NAT. 2x18500 hasn't been available since the last run, a few months ago. I recall a couple of CPFers kicking themselves for not getting it. A matching Surefire bezel and tailcap in NAT. is a bit harder to find than in black. But for some, the tougher finish is worth it. I've seen a Leef-bodied 9P in NAT.; looked very classy.

    I myself missed out on the Leef bandwagon. I only recently found out about them. The best I did was get a natural 1x18500 body. The Leef bodies are great, I really like the machine work and finish on them. Nothing against your bodies Nite but the Leef bodies are much different. I do wish I could find a 1x18650 and a 2x18650 Leef body.

    I called Lighthound today and they said Leef was retired, there would not be any more from him. There are some bodies left but no tails, and it doesn't appear to be any equivalent replacement. Leef's tails have the male threads.

    The whole reason I got into this is I couldnt find a 2x18650 LEEF or FM body. I do have the LEEF 2x18500 black (9P) which Is awesome.

    while I do like the LEEFs more. I also wish I could've found a 2x18650 LEEF but that was over a year ago and I still couldnt find one. FiveMega is now making them in round if that makes you feel any better. (but not the 2x18650 in round..not yet)

    I agree leef is nicer but it costs more too!

    I tried to have 500 leefs made but it was too late....then I met FM.

    Default So has Leef completely given up doing Flash light parts?

    I am wondering of anyone in the know, has any info on whether Leef will ever start up doing his parts again? I did not discover his stuff till he was near the end this last time...

    If you want a Leef anything, make a WTB post over at the CPF MarketPlace; and hope someone is willing to part with one of Leef's creations. I have a Leef-bodied M4 and a Leef-bodied 9P w/ handmade Malkoff M60 drop-in in the head.

    To be honest, I'm not parting with either one; ever.

    I wonder if he'd be willing to post CNC drawings of the bodies he made? I'd consider having one made as a one-off if I can find a place to have it done.

    Did you read through the thread?

    To answer the main question, no; he doesn't make his custom bodies anymore. The last run was at least a couple of years ago if not a bit longer.

    My heart must have skipped a beat when i saw this thread on top. I thought either he was back or someone found a supply of LEEF hosts.

    He's still around lurking one in a while:

    According to the post (linked below), Leef may have sold the rights ?

    I'm sure many members here would be very interested on any further news, info, and/or updates ....
