    You could try a Surefire Combat Ring:

    The fingergrips do help me hold the light more securely and it has two lanyard
    holes drilled into the fingergrips.

    I find the switch itself to be not very positive, spongy .... has any one swapped out the switch for a better one. I tried a McGizmo one but it does not fit

    Where can you get the flush forward clicky without the cigar ring?

    I got mine free from an ebay dealer. But you can get it from Lighthound.

    Does anyone know what happened to the Solarforce T4? Yesterday I saw it on the Solarforce store page and several ebay auctions, and today, nothing. Kai still shows it (the whole kit not the light by itself) but no one else seems to. Has anyone actually gotten their hands on one yet?

    I was excited about this light as it seems to be all that I need, now I can't find it

    Found it, Thanks Zeruel. It's still odd that everyone else seems to have pulled them. Maybe I'll wait for ernsanada's review before jumping on this one.

    No problem.
    I think in terms of performance, there might not be much to shout about, the main uniqueness is its adaptability. Not any light that I know can be a 1xCR123, 2xAA, headlamp and lantern at the same time. Maybe the "T" in T4 is Transformer, robot in disguise. And also I guess we like the form of the 1xCR123.

    There are plenty of 1xCR123A / 2xAA flashlights out there ..

    Its not a new concept ... But the T4 does look good though ..

    The L2M's seem quite large for a single cell lights - they are only 3.6 cm shorter than a full-size L2.

    EDIT: The first picture in this post is of a L2M and an L2 side-by-side: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...7&postcount=71

    Black Rose - I meant that with the S4 forward clicky it looks around the same length if not longer than a 6P....

    Thanks TX101 - not as big as I thought. I really like the cigar grip ring on the tailcap.

    I guess I'll have to figure out how to post a pic and show you mine!

    A side question: do Solar L2s have an AR lens or not? There seems to be conflicting info hereabouts.
    The Phaser: A nice EDC with great throw; heat and runtime can be issues.

    I don't know for sure, but I would guess "no" on the AR lens.

    Not sure about AR coating, but the Solarforce lenses are nicely finished on the edges, not just left raw like the cheapie lights are.

    Well, I have all ready posted this image on another thread, but I suppose it fits this thread as well.

    Nice. How much weight did the chrome plating add?

    Feels the same as a regular anodized one. The ano was stripped before plating from what I was told.

    Saw some on ebay, but you have to buy the switch and light separately.
