    This is a great mod. Now that the E2DL is putting out 200 lumens I may be coming back.

    I just received a toothless E2DL tailcap from M I K today what a class act person and the modded tailcap should be mandatory for all you E1B owners. No more slipping around in the hand or worrying its gonna slip out of the hand.

    I think its a great alternative to getting a Z61 for the E2DL and like I said IMO its the best possible set up for the E1B.

    Nice job M I K thanks!

    This my new EDC. It runs on a 3.7V RCR123 and outshines my stock E1B by a good 15 to 20%.

    Thanks M I K !


    Nice work!

    A few quick questions-

    Can you do a little less radical de-fang? I like some crenellation, but just not the super sharp, chisel point teeth on the stock SureFire. Maybe halfway between stock and the above?

    I have a Nitecore NDI that has "teeth", but they are nowhere near as sharp, and are way more pocket friendly if that gives you an idea of what I'm going for.

    Also, what single cell body is that guy running with his E2DL head? How does that affect output/lumens and run time?

    Also, I have the SureFire E2D incandescent. I'm assuming you can do that one as well?

    Let me know, I'm very interested. The too sharp teeth and the length (but mostly the supersharp teeth) kept this light from being an EDC.

    Southpaw, the body in that photo is a Surefire E1B.

    The heads I have run just as bright on 1 rechargeable battery as they do on 2 primary batteries. I run mine on 1 rcr123 in an E1E or Aleph body or on 1 17500 battery in an Aleph body.

    I love M I K's work. He defanged a head a while back and you can't tell it isn't stock. His work is perfect. In fact, I am waiting on 2 more heads to return from M I K.

    Fellas I can't for the life of me understand why more real users don't run M I K mods on their lights.

    I am just glad our path's crossed here sometime back as I have his TC mods on both of my EDC's, an E1B Creemator & E1E RoomSweeper. Stay the course brother Merril, have a safe & prosperous New Year !

    I couldn't have said it any better myself Mr. G. Such fine words coming from an A+ member as yourself is music to my ears. God Bless you my friend.

    On a side note, I'm curious if perhaps there may be a way to promote the tail cap switch modification I do. I'm not sure how better to do it than to give a money back guarantee. A person doesn't even have to let go of their original switch as I can sell a separate modified switch. As you're comments relay Agile54, for comfort and convenience it puts a SureFire E series light in a league of it's own. For the time and effort involved, I currently have what I believe to be a very fair price on the MIKmod switch. In fact, it is so non-profitable for me that one can notice the time frame difference in my thread bumps between reply #74 and 75.

    Oh well Agile54, we dang sure have ours in our pockets.

    Thank You Sir and Happy New Year.

    Awesome!

    Ive got a E2DL coming in on trade, and plan to send it straight to Mik for the same mod as Glock22's.


    Question for Mik about the tailcap mod:

    How far can you grind down the tailcap shroud? Ive looked at the pictures and they show some of the lip left. Can all of the lip be removed?

    I've always liked the E2DL, but I've never been a fan of those pointy teeth.
    What I do is machine the teeth down and die the surfaces. I don't paint them, but rather I use an acid chemical mix to die them. It is similar to Anodizing but there is no electrolysis or heat involved. They look beautiful up close and personal. You can just send me an E2DL head, I'll do the Modification, and return ship it back to you with Insurance. If you would like to include 15 bucks to help with shipping and the Modification work, that would be appreciated. If you are a Disabled Veteran, or an LEO, NO CHARGE. Anyone interested in having it done to their head can contact me via Email.



    Here is a link to a thread WITH MORE PICS about the Modification I make to the tailcap also. It makes an excellent tailcap for the E1B.
    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...73#post3124573 (Thank You flip.)

    Pricing of the E2DL tailcap modification is the same as the E2DL head trim. If you want to do the head and tailcap together, I'll give you a discount and do BOTH for only 19.95 total. I also have MIKmod tailcaps for sale at 43.95.

    The MIKmod Tailcap. This is a BEFORE and AFTER shot.






    This is a comparison of the MIKmod cap with the Z61





    This MIKmod Tailcap is excellent for the SureFire E1B.

    Your light came out perfect Glock22. The polished look is exactly what I want on mine. I cant wait to get my E2DL to Mik. It is still on it's way from Singapore so Ill have to wait a little while longer.

    Thank You Glock 22. You are definitely a fine individual to do business with.

    Welcome to CPF.

    Hi M I K (and everyone else, since this is my first post on cpf!):

    Are you doing business with overseas customers, too?

    As a Surefire fan in Germany for years, I read several posts of GLOCK 22 about the new "Fury" and noticed his signature alluding to a "toothless e2dl".

    As this is exactly what I´ve always been thinking about, I´m interested in modifying an e2dl, too.

    Just have to wait until the new 2012 e2dl (250 lumens) is available in Germany. Unfortunately, this may take some months...

    Anyway, some information on overseas orders is highly apreciated.

    Regards
    nitehead

    Hello nitehead,
    Since you are a new guy on the block, and you can't receive PM's yet, this is in reply to your first post. Because you are a new member to what I think is a great forum, I think it is only fitting for you to experience a great start. A person only has one opportunity to make a first impression. So let me start by welcoming you to CPF and all the good people involved with it.

    As far as your question about working with people across the ponds, Yes I do business with them. If and when you decide to have me do a modification for you, let me know and I'll do my best to work something out with you. In the meantime, good luck with your new membership.

    God Bless You nitehead.
