    I'll take one. Style 2, without the extra chamfers, brushed finish.

    In case anyone's on the fence about getting one of these, I offer up a couple of pics of the one I bought:





    Good stuff.

    Just making sure you know... #4 and #5 are for the larger diameter head of the McLuxIII-27LT. The diameter on the head of the 27LT was approx. 1 3/8" and the Aleph 1 heads are about 1 1/4"

    Do you still have a "Style 1" bezel in standard finish available ? .... I have an Aleph1 on the way

    Also, to get out the old bezel retaining ring, will the standard Z44 tool fit ? Or is there some other recommended method ?

    Thanks!

    I loosened my Aleph 1 bezel ring using a pair of jeweler's screwdrivers braced in my hand. It worked well enough for a single operation.

    I've also got a pretty small pair of snap ring pliers that might be worth a try, I guess. I'd just rather use something more secure (& non-marring)....

    If you're only going to remove it once so you can install a new bezel, all you need to do is be extra-careful the one time. Maybe wrap the plier jaws in a bit of tape to prevent scuffing the anodizing.

    Have you tried the finger-nail method to begin with?

    If you have strong finger-nails, use those belonging to your thumb and middle finger in the opposing grooves of the retaining ring and twist the light so that the ring rotates anti-clockwise relative to the light.

    I found that this method worked quite well with most of my Aleph lights at the time although it resulted in a few chipped finger-nails.
    Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine

    Yes, a few of all styles in stock...

    All my Aleph lights I bought back then already had the original retaining bezels removed once before so they were pretty easy to move. I just took a pair of needle nose pliers and locked the tips open at the right spacing with a screw and washers. I was lucky that they moved really easy and nothing got scratched.

    for Style 1 Aleph1 bezel in standard finish. I added a bit extra for fees and such - if that might cover a DC# too, I would appreciate it.

    EDIT - Arrived, thanks! (and installation was a breeze... ) .
