    Wow. I think you would get a large interest in this. I have a E series SF and would be interested in one. Same for the clip. a reverse style will probably be most popular on the clip. Anything in Ti is gonna be hungered for on CPF!!

    I think I might want one, depending on price and pictures
    Its better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it.

    Not too interested in a clip variety at this time.

    No, no parts yet.

    The extension could turn out something similar to this.



    or as simple as this

    I'd like one like the bottom pic but slightly flared so access to the button is a bit easier, no crennelation, shiny Ti.

    Like this!

    best I can do is a flare to about .825"
    E tail is about .795"

    I will make the very end opening as large as possible, tapering down to the switch.

    a triple cren would allow more room for a thumb...

    I'll try to whip up a simple proto tonight.

    COOL .825 should be big enough.

    If the crens can be nice and smooth then that's fine. Do you think a 3 prong is stable enough?

    I'll have to try a couple things.
    I think I would prefer the smooth round, w/o crens.

    We'll see what the rest of the crowd wants too.

    Cool,


    I would be in for some Flared delrin tail extensions both for the E series and L1/L2/A2 Series tailcaps.

    Crenulations would be cool but not a must.

    Do you have both E-series tailcaps and L1/L2/A2 tailcaps?
    The last 3 share the same tailcap so thes would sell for sure.

    I am only planning on making Ti parts right now.

    Delrin ones may still be available from another member?? not sure.

    I do not have an L1/L2/A2.
    Can anyone confirm that the threaded ring is identical in those tailcaps?

    L1/L2/A2 are the same but not the same as the E series. Well I'm 90% sure anyway...........

    That would be great, but I'll need the whole tail to check fitment of rubber button, to ensure watertightness with new parts.

    let me know, I really don't need an expensive stock incan right now.

    OK I'll send you mine but don't kill it! My A2 is pretty modded.

    About time I helped more than just throwing around ideas.

    Moddoo:

    Although I'm not interested in the clips at the present time, I can send you my L2 tailcap and L4 tailcap, if that would be of help.

    If you can make one with a hole for lanyards, I'd be very interested in one for an E2E and one for an L4. Not sure if anyone else would be interested, tho.

    Cool, it looks like Sgt will send his.
    I could easily have a lanyard hole.

    Here are a couple cell phone pics of a prototype I cut tonight.

    There is plenty of room for the button to squish.
    I made the inside a nice 5 degree taper to the bottom

    I left it cylindrical until the end where there is a slight grip ring which works well.

    Even though I made it a bit too long, it is pretty easy to activate.

    sorry the pics suck

    Dang you made plenty of room in there! The button looks lonely somehow.
    I really like the slight lip on the outside, classy.

    PM me your address so I can get the A2 tailcap out to you tomorrow. Oh and I am in for 1 A2 ring and 1 E ring.

    I'll send you the L2 and L4 tailcaps tomorrow, I've already got your address. To make things easier, I'll enclose a return shipment sticker and return postage. This gives me a chance to return the favor you performed for the 6P boring services deal.

    But there already are shrouds for the E-series and A/L-series tailcaps, and have been for quite a while. (Delrin, but still...)

    Give us shrouds for the Z58/Z59!!! (and matching bezels for the U2, please)
