    Yeah I think I know where you got it too, on closeout right? I almost bought one but I spent my funds on an 8AX commander and KT5 turbohead instead. Try and get your hands on an MN02 for your E2e, 2.5 hrs of light from a 2 cell incan? What's not to love?

    *bump*

    I didn't know where to put this, and since recent posts on this thread date back only one month ago, I thought that I would add it here..

    .

    I messing around with my older KX2 last night and finally got around to cracking it up open. Wow! What a pain-in-the-butt that was!

    Anyhoo, I happened to have an Icon Rogue 1 sitting on my desk that was barely being used, and got to thinking how cool it would be if its stock textured worked in a KX2 head. And what do you know? It does!



    Not only does it work, but it drops right in. There is no shaving, sanding, or drilling of the reflector required. But, it is a little bit shorter in overall length as compared with the stock TIR. So, I had to place an o-ring between the lens and the reflector to make up that space. But that's all you need to do..

    Why I didn't think of this before, I'll never know?

    I just picked up a new E-Series light this week. This one has 3-Flats on it instead of the 2-Flats on older L4 body. Yet the checkering feels rougher and more course to the touch. The color of the anodizing is also completely uniform from head to tail, unlike my older L4 which is three different shades of grey. I think I actually like the mish-mash of colors better for some strange reason. This new light has no character.. lol

    Also, when did they update the Z57? The guts on this one look completely different. Not to mention that it requires more pressure to activate it, as compare with my other (older) Z57's.

    Another thing that I noticed is that there appears to be purple-colored tint on the stock glass lens? Is this some sort of AR coating?

    Whats the colour of the "tower" in the TC
    White = older one with problem
    Black = newer one w/ larger pressure

    In the tailcap? It looks black. But it has what looks like a little sleeve around it, so you really can't get a good look at its guts like my older Z57's..

    It is the head of the AZ2.

    The E2L head is on the AZ2's body and vice versa.

    My only Surefire. It's a lego M31W powered. I also added a E1b 2 way clip. Love this light!

    I think I've figured out the perfect light for me. And E1L with an E2L-AA head, two way clip, and a mclt tail cap. This way I get 80 lumens on high, 3 low, and it runs off a primary. Plus, I can put the E1L head on the E2L-AA body and get outrageous runtime.

    Does anyone know of any rubber boots that will actually work with both the older and newer SF E-Series (Z57/Z61) clickie tailcaps?

    I ordered a McGizmo McClicky Pak Switch Silicone Boot from Lighthound recently, only to find out that it is too short for this application. Sure, it fits over the switch, but it doesn't allow the switch to fully pop up all the way. The same can be said of the 14mm Silicone Tailcaps from DX Extreme, which don't work either. Why? They are too short, as well.

    PS - I have already tried to get just a boot from SF, no dice. They won't sell them.

    Anyone know of any of other sources that might have the correct rubber boot?

    Just get the whole McClicky. It's better anyway.

    Anyone know why Surefire is so stingy with their parts?

    They probably don't want people taking their stuff apart and working on it. You know, that whole warranty issue..

    .

    As to why I don't just go out and buy a completely new McClicky, I want to keep using this Z57. Even though it's six years old, it still works great. All it needs is a new rubber boot, and it'll be good as new.

    Hey Schuey,

    I have a number of bad tailcaps from back in the day when SF didn't want them returned. PM me with a mailing address and I'll send you a couple. They basically failed from the git-go and if you swap out the guts you will have a pristine tailcap not to mention "new boots!"

    I am sure I wrote a post earlier in this thread, but now it isn't more. I guess it got lost in the crash earlier this year.

    At first I bought E1L and E2L AA Outdoorsmans. My satisfaction with them made me getting also E2DL Defender. I love the TIR-optics, really the best for outdoors use. Yes, these lights have some drawbacks. The clips are wrong way, and with E1L the clip is mostly useless, because the point of weight makes the light want to turn the other way.
    The E2DL could have the long clip like E2L AA, don't understand why Surefire chosed the short clip to it. The sharp crenelated bezel of E2DL looks cool, but will soon damage a pocket so I plan to grind the "teeth" away.
    Apart from these issues I love these lights, and they belong to the lights I would keep if I was allowed to only have a few lights! The design and quality feeling is just great.

    You could get a KX2C. It is only a one speed though. I have this setup with a Z68. It is a very cool looking light.

    Thanks for the tip!

    I was not aware of this option. The head will be like the Outdoorsmans, nice! And I usually never carry only one light(when I do it will be for example E1L or E2L AA) and can use another light for lower brightness purposes.

    I recently acquired an E1e in a two-light deal on craigslist. I was all about finding a drop-in for it, but recently it has become my go to "around the house at night" light, and I really can't think of changing it.

    So...I've got an E1B that I carry in my pocket at ALL times, and I love it. I won't bother posting pics, 'cause it isn't anything special to look at...especially with all the great pics on this thread. I did end up putting a Z68 tailcap on it, which I've liked a lot.

    That being said...I'm on a quest to replace my E1B with an "E1DL" mod. Anyone out there interested in selling theirs, or know where I might be able to acquire one? Additionally, I'm wanting an E2D-LED as well, which is easy enough to find, but I thought if anyone out there is needing to unload some lights, that I could help them out by sending some cash their way.

    I am tentatively planning on building my own, in the event that I can't find anyone who wants to part with theirs. Anyone know of anyone wanting to unload either an "E1E" body, and an E2D-LED head and tailcap?

    Newbie here. I've had this light for about 3 years now. Can you guys tell me what I have?!

    I think I purchased the head separately to replace a non LED head. How about the tail? Is it an OEM for the E2D Executive Defender?

    I carry this light with me everywhere. I don't think I use it enough though. I'm on my 4th set of batteries.

    You have a stock SureFire E2D with a SureFire KX2 conversion LED head.

    Head itself is $150 brand new. High mode would be 60 lumens, with low mode at 3 lumens.
