    Wink2 TnC Surefire C to M Adaptors interest thread.

    Post your interest here.


    These are used to connect M series heads to your C Series flashlight.
    Finned design would be best looking imho.
    Need atleast 30 to make this a go.




    Another option i think is interesting is a E to C adaptor...not sure how that would work though....


    Post your interest here.

    I just bought a E to C adapter from your website, thank you. I'd also be interested in a C to M adapter if the color was close to SF Millennium and price was reasonable.

    edit: Revised statement: I'd take one in HA-Black and one or two in HA-Natural, depending on price.

    Also interested, but have to be honest... Pending final price.

    An M3 that could fit into a conventional, open-top, holster (thanks to the head being attached to a 9P body) is something I'd love to carry for work.

    I would take 1 for sure and maybe 2 depending on the price.

    I am definitely in for one C to M adaptor, perhaps two, depending on final price.

    I would prefer HA natural, but I'll take whatever I can get.

    Upon posting to this thread, Morpheus kindly PM'd me with a link to OpticsHQ's C2M adaptor. I placed an order and called them for the CPF discount, and I was informed that their C2M adaptor doesn't work with Surefire Turboheads! This was apparently unknown to them, prior to some customer feedback, since their heads fit Surefire bodies, and this fits their heads. But the thread pitch is just a hair out of tolerance, and won't fit.

    So, I'm still interested in a C2M adaptor. The $29.99 price at OpticsHQ seems very reasonable. I'm in for 1 at that price.

    It was probably my feedback to OpticsHQ.

    I don't think it is a thread issue. Their E2M adapter works fine on my old SureFire E2 Executive to mate a SureFire Z46 Millennium bezel (taken from an M900A VFG weaponlight). But the E2M adapter doesn't work with a KT4 (neither did their C2M adapter).

    I think that the problem is that the bottom face of the reflector is shaped differently for a Z46 vs KT4 (the Z46 reflector looks more recessed). For the KT4, I think that the reflector interferes with the fit and prevents the TH from screwing into the OpticsHQ adapter all way.

    I would be interested in a C2M adapter, especially if the price is at or below the OpticsHQ retail pricing.

    We would like to build these for you guys, but due to a number of factors it might require us to ask for a prepay, which I've never done. I can't quote a price until we design the part, but it would be in line with other pricing for small runs of quality custom parts. I can't comment on the part sold on OptiqsHQ, but I suspect they built a lot more parts than we could sell on CPF, and I have no idea of the quality. My wild guess would be between $30 and $40.

    I'm okay with a prepay and the price if it is of the same quality and color match or the E to C adaptors.

    I would also be fine with a non finned version.

    The ones at Optics HQ won't fit properly onto Surefire M-series heads. They fit Surefire C-series bodies. You need TLS M-series heads. A full blown compatible adapter would be nice.

    In terms of quality, TLS products are not Surefire quality. But they're not far behind.

    I'd be willing to prepay.

    Here are some photos highlighting what I think is the problem with the OpticsHQ adapters. Note that the OpticsHQ/TLS TX3 TH fits my SF M900A perfectly. And an SF Z46 bezel works fine in an OpticsHQ/TLS E2M adapter. So I don't think the fit problem is a thread issue.

    TLS E2M adapter (bezel side):


    SF M900A "neck" vs TLS T5 "neck":


    The OpticsHQ/TLS products have a ledge just a short distance down from the top edge of the neck area of either the flashlight body or the adapter. This ledge interferes with the bottom of the SF KT4 reflector. Basically, it is a lack of clearance problem. If that ledge were machined lower so that it cleared the bottom of the KT4 reflector, I think that the OpticsHQ adapter would work with SF KT4 THs. The adapter and TLS T5 flashlight body definitely work with a SureFire Z46 Millennium bezel from an M900A. The Z46 reflector has a different reflector profile and doesn't have clearance issues.

    The basic solution is to follow the internal profile of the SF product instead of adding some extra material for whatever reason and resulting in an incompatibility.

    If the C-M adaptors are in the ballpark of about $30 - $40, I'd be willing to prepay. However, I don't have paypal. Would a money order be acceptable?

    I am willing to prepay and I am interested in two pieces in black.

    Just to clarify, these adapter allow an M series head to be used on a C Series body correct?

    Little update,


    As many of you may have noticed i am not as active on the boards anymore.
    Hopefully that will catch up,but it will take a while.
    So if someone else could take over this thread and keep the list updated that would be great.


    Reason for this is that i just sold the house and will be busy with moving,buying a new house and fixing up the house.


    Priorities priorities priorities...yawn..

    You know how it is


    Best Regards,
    Benny

    This topic is a couple months old, but I'm starting my research on how to put a Surefire KT4 TurboHead (meant for a M3T or M4) onto my Surefire C3.

    Since this sounds like what this thread is about, and if there's still interest in making a batch of these, I'm in for 1 in HA dark gray (whatever best matches Surefire's HA III dark gray coating) if it's around the $30-40 price point.

    I would buy one as well. I can't believe there is not more to choose from besides the Lumens Factory mini Turbo Head.

    Sadly, nothing came of this thread. So looks like your best bet would indeed be something from Lumens Factory.
